The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics meet Sunday in NBA preseason action at the TD Garden.
The Cleveland Cavaliers look for a preseason win to get a game above a .500 record. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 112.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 99 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Jordan Clarkson is averaging 16 points and 2.5 rebounds while Tristan Thompson is averaging 14.5 points and nine rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Larry Nance Jr. is grabbing seven rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 82.9 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 27.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won five of their last seven preseason games.
The Boston Celtics look for another preseason win to improve to 3-0 on the season. The Boston Celtics are averaging 103.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 90.5 points on 38.2 percent shooting. Jayson Tatum is averaging 17.5 points and 4.5 rebounds while Kemba Walker is averaging 12 points and four assists. Carsen Edwards is the third double-digit scorer and Javonte Green is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Boston Celtics are shooting 29.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free throw line. The Boston Celtics are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 50 rebounds per game. The Boston Celtics have won seven of their last 10 preseason games.
The Cavaliers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 7-1 in Cavaliers last 8 games following a ATS loss and 6-1 in Cavaliers last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Celtics are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Boston. The under is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings in Boston.
The Boston Celtics have played well through a pair of preseason games and should continue to give their starters decent play with the warm up games soon coming to a close. The Cleveland Cavaliers are a young team that often struggles against stiffer competition, and the defensive effort hasn't been great up to this point. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Celtics, as I don't have much confidence with the Cavs when playing above-average teams.
