Boston are now 10-0 at home in these Playoffs, and to go against them in Game 4 was perhaps a little silly of us. We should have known the Cavs can’t get more than 3 players playing well on any given night.

Quote of the night –

“They threw us (the Cavs) for a loop” by not playing Semi Ojeleye”. “his matchup,(Kyle Korver) didn’t check in”

Lue says he didn’t play Kyle Korver during the 1Q because Ojeleye didn’t check in.

A Semi Ojeleye matchup should not win or lose games for anybody.

The home team is 5-0 both straight up and ATS in the Eastern Conference Finals, and none of those games have been close with the smallest margin 9 points, and the average being 18 points. Ridiculous.

Boston are only 1-6 ATS in their 7 road playoff games with their only win coming in OT in Philadelphia, and with Lebron putting his consecutive record of 7 straight NBA Finals appearances on the line tonight, you can be sure that he will bring it.

Seems the majority of tipsters are all aboard the Cavs tonight, however we aren’t totally convinced with the -7.0 line. However we do think the Cleveland will get over the line, just.

BEST BET = Boston +7.0

PLAYER PROP = JR Smith Over 1.5 Three-Pointers
