4/23 – Cavaliers at Celtics

7pm - Cleveland -5 at Boston  O/U 203.5

It is tempting to back the Celtics tonight at home as they try to win game 3 after losing the first 2 in Cleveland.  But then I remember that they are up against an extremely talented and hot Cavs team with the games best player in LeBron James.

Boston will be pumped for this chance to take on the mighty Cavs in a home playoff game, and coach Stevens is sure to have a solid plan, but they just don't match up with the Eastern Conference's no. 2 seed.  The relative lack of productivity out of their starters does not bode well for the C's.  Isaiah Thomas is good off the bench, but not good enough to beat Cleveland by himself.  They may keep it to single digits, but at this number, I have to give the points and take the superior squad.
