(49-27) Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics (50-27)
This game features the top two teams in the East and will be a major implication for the #1 seed.
The Cavs are 2-2 in their last 4 games while Boston is 6-1 in their last 7.
Cleveland is a half-game behind Boston for the #1 seed and will want to secure home court advantage throughout the playoffs.
Lebron James put up an excellent performance against Paul George and the Pacers, one that should keep him supplanted in the MVP discussion.
He scored 41 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and dished out 11 assists. The last game against the Celtics he put up a triple-double in a four-point loss, so expect big things from King James.
Kyrie Irving is averaging 24 points and 8 assists in the last two games, and his matchup against Isaiah Thomas should be a good one. Look for Irving to keep up his strong play and score in this one.
Kevin Love has been inconsistent since returning to the lineup a couple of weeks ago, but he should have a great game against the Celtics Wednesday night.
It is very surprising to see Cleveland rank 15th in rebound when they have arguably two of the 10 best rebounding big men in the league starting in their front court.
Isaiah Thomas saw his four-game streak of 30 or more points snapped against the Knicks. He played limited minutes as the game was well in hand.
The last matchup against Cleveland he had 31 points and 5 assists but shot just 3-9 from behind the arc.
Thomas will bounce back in a big way, as this game could determine the future of Boston’s shot at reaching the NBA Finals. A 40 point game isn’t out of the question.
Al Horford has distributed the ball exceptionally well during this recent Celtics stretch. He picked up 5 or more assists in seven of the last 8 games.
Against the Cavs poor defense expect him to rack up more assists and finish with 16 points.
