On Sunday February 11, the Cleveland Cavaliers arrives at the Spectrum Center to face the host Boston Celtics. Entering the game the Cavaliers are feeling the momentum of the trade deadline having beat the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime and the Hawks in their most recent outing.
Boston however immediately followed up the passing of the trade deadline with a loss to the Indiana Pacers resulting in the Celtics falling to second place in the East.
Last season, the Cavaliers won three of the four seasonal series, while this year the teams have split their matches. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 125 of their 204 matches.
As if there wasn’t already ample drama surrounding these two squads factor in the four new Cavaliers should make their debut versus the Celtics. It’s hard to know what to expect since this is a lot of bodies to incorporate all at once.
It’s likely the two former Lakers will play together to offset the chemistry issues.
In their last outing despite being short handed versus the Hawks the Cavaliers were on fire offensively. Six players scored in double digits with Kyle Korver scoring a season high 30 points. LeBron James registered a triple-double of 22 points, 19 assists and 12 rebounds.
Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood and George Hill are all expected to play.
For Kyrie Irving these matches versus his former team and LeBron James will always offer additional drama. Through this point in the season Irving has had the upper hand with his Celtics well ahead of the Cavaliers, but with the trade moves Cleveland made this game will hold intrigue for both sides.
The Celtics are showing signs of fatigue and it’s beginning to translate on the court. In the past ten games they’ve lost to the Lakers, Warriors, Raptors and Pacers. Moreover, Boston needed overtime to beat the short handed Wizards plus beat the Blazers and Nuggets by a single point.
Having fallen to second place today’s match offers additional pressure as another loss would help the Raptors begin to pad their lead over the Celtics while simultaneously reducing their lead over the Cavaliers.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: Cavaliers +5
Tough game to call due to the circumstances of how each team enters the match. The Celtics are struggling offensively; the Cavaliers have been brutal defensively and will be introducing four new players into the mix.

Generally first time outings have a way of being positives even if it’s not sustainable. For that reason I’m banking on the Cavaliers covering the points and hedging toward them eeking out a victory.
