The Cavaliers come into this game with a fair bit of momentum behind them. They have won their last three games and have only looked better with each passing minute. The franchise currently sits 6th in the conference, with a record of 8-7.
The Celtics, on the other hand, started this campaign well but have struggled massively in recent games. They come into this match with a losing streak of three games and will look to end that run during this clash. The franchise currently sits 4th in the East, with a record of 8-6.

Despite coming into this game in very good form, the Cleveland Cavaliers have some notable players sidelined during this clash.
Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) and Kevin Love (calf) have both been ruled out from the game against the Boston Celtics after picking up serious injuries early in the campaign.
Given how important these players are to the Cleveland Cavaliers, it will be interesting to see if the franchise can cope in their absence against one of the best teams in the NBA.
