NBA Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers (39-25) at Boston Celtics (44-18)

Since the Boston Celtics haven’t been very successful against Cleveland this season, they’re hoping for better luck when they play host to the visiting Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

This season, Boston and Cleveland have met twice, and the Cavaliers won both games in overtime. On Oct. 28, Cleveland defeated Boston 132-123, and on Nov. 2, Cleveland defeated Boston 114-113.

The last time the teams played, Darius Garland had 29 points and 12 assists. That victory featured 25 points from Donovan Mitchell.

Cleveland beat Toronto 118-93 on Sunday to end a three-game losing streak and Mitchell, who is averaging a team-high 27.2 points per game, scored 35 points. In the victory, Mitchell missed one of his eight 3-point attempts from his career high. Jarrett Allen scored 23 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds for Cleveland. Garland and Evan Mobley each scored 18 points in the final game.

This season, the Cavaliers have stopped an opponent from scoring more than 100 points for the 20th time. In that regard, Cleveland is ahead of the NBA.

The New York Knicks defeated Boston 109-94 on the road on Monday night. When Jayson Tatum claimed he was fouled on a 3-point attempt during the fourth quarter, he received his second technical foul and was disqualified from the game. He had never been kicked out of an NBA game before.

The Celtics missed 20 of their first 22 attempts at the three-point line and shot just 21.4% (9 of 42) from behind the arc, which was a season low. Boston’s three-game winning streak was ended by the defeat.

In the game, the Knicks attempted 34 free throws. Boston had 14 endeavors.

Tatum, who is scoring 30.1 points per game, had 14 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds in the end. The Celtics, who were without Jaylen Brown due to personal reasons, had Malcolm Brogdon score a team-high 22 points.

Brown is expected to participate in the Cavaliers’ game on Wednesday, according to Mazzulla. Brown scored 30 points to lead the Celtics against Cleveland in Boston’s most recent game.
