Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction & Betting Tips - NBA

 by Kennedy Kechula | in NBA Prediction

The Boston Celtics will welcome the Cleveland Cavaliers for game five of the two sides' Eastern Conference semi-final matchup. They lead the series 3-1 and will advance to the conference final with victory here. The Celtics are one win away from a sixth conference final appearance in eight seasons. They continued their impeccable away record in these playoffs by winning games three and four in Cleveland. Joe Mazzulla’s men eliminated the Heat in five games in round one and won both road matches. They are in the same position again and will likely close out this series in five. Jason Tatum scored a game-high 33 points and Jaylen Brown put up 27 to power Boston to a 109-102 victory in game four. It was the closest margin between the two with the first three games seeing the winner win by double digits. The Celtics, who have been without the injured Kristap Porzingis for the last five games, are averaging 107.6 points.

The Cavaliers are facing an elimination game. They have to win here if they are to keep their season alive. J.B. Bickerstaff’s men took game two in Boston and had momentum as the series switched to Cleveland. They however were unable to protect home court. In game two, the Cavs had three players score over 20 points and shot 46% from three. None of these replicated itself in games three and four. The Cavs have had to deal with more on the injury front than the Celtics. First-choice centre Jarret Allen, the team’s second-leading scorer in the postseason, has missed the last seven games. He was joined on the sidelines in game four by leading scorer Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell missed the game with a calf strain. Ty Jerome and Craig Porter Jr. are also in the treatment room. The Cavs are averaging under 100 points a game in the postseason.

Our Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers Prediction

Our prediction for the Boston Celtics v the Cleveland Cavaliers is for the match to see over 200.0 points scored. Only one of the four matches in this series has failed to produce over 200 points. Two of the three that have, have been in Boston. We expect another high-scoring game given that this is an elimination match for the Cavaliers. And with both teams allowing over 100 points against them in the postseason, this is very likely.
