The Trends-

  • Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Boston.
  • Cleveland are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Boston.
  • Over is 8-1-1 in Celtics last 10 home games.
  • Cleveland are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 road games.

The Celtics looked the goods in Game 4 with a 16-point lead before Kyrie decided enough was enough, pouring in 21 points in the third quarter despite rolling his ankle, eventually finishing the game with 42 points.

The Cavs outscoring the Celtics 58-34 in the paint was a glaring factor, and with the Celtics lined up in the medical room, it won’t get any better on the glass.

Lebron’s assistant, Coach Lue, spewed some trash following the game –

“The stuff they’re running, it’s harder to defend than Golden State’s (offense) for me, as far as the actions and all the running around and all the guys who are making all the plays, so it’s a totally different thing,” Lue said. “Like, they hit the post, Golden State runs splits and all that stuff but these guys are running all kinds of (stuff). And Brad (Stevens has) got them moving and cutting and playing with pace and everybody is a threat.”

Yeah, not buying that Lue.

Amir Johnson (shoulder), Jae Crowder (groin) and rookie Jaylen Brown(hip) are all questionable, with Isaiah Thomas done for the season.

The Cavs will win this one, no doubt in the world, and the -10.0 is a nice play. Might also throw that into the Overs, however a little hesitant following the 4th quarter slow-down in Game 4.
