The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics collide at the TD Garden on Friday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be eager to build on their current three-game win streak after taking down the Magic in a 103-92 home win on Wednesday. Evan Mobley led the team in scoring with 20 points on nine of 15 shooting, Jarrett Allen added 18 points with 16 rebounds while Donovan Mitchell and Cedi Osman scored 14 points apiece. As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 41 percent from the field and 10 of 33 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 30 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before pouring in another 30 points in the fourth quarter to put the Magic away in the end. Donovan Mitchell had a rough shooting night as he shot just five of 19 from the field while Kevin Love scored just four points on one of seven shooting.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics will be looking to bounce back in this one after having their three-game win streak halted by the Bulls in a 120-102 road loss on Monday. Jayson Tatum led the way with 26 points, eight rebounds and five assists, Jaylen Brown added 21 points while Malcolm Brogdon chipped in with 12 points off the bench. As a team, the Celtics shot a season-low 37 percent from the field and 18 of 48 from the 3-point line as they got off to a flyer with 39 points in the first quarter, but they couldn’t maintain that pace and were quickly in deep water after getting outscored by 70-40 in the second and third quarters combined.

Looking at the betting trends, the Cavaliers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine road games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a win of more than 10 points and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Celtics are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss, 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a loss of more than 10 points and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-0 in the last four meetings overall, the Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Boston and the Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Cavaliers are coming into this game with plenty of momentum but they will again be shorthanded as Darius Garland is still out. The Celtics are just about at full strength and will be eager to bounce back after suffering their first defeat and they have the advantage of extra rest as they haven't played since Monday. This should be a close one, but I'll lean towards the Celtics to get hte win and cover at home.
