Tuesday night takes us to Boston where two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference will face off at TD Garden. As the Cleveland Cavaliers had to Boston for this Eastern Conference clash here in this one, as both teams look for a huge momentum boosting victory on Tuesday night to kick off the week. Both Cleveland and Boston made the postseason last year and both of them. Look to be on track to make another playoff appearance this year and this could be a potential preview of a playoff series somewhere down the line this season. Both teams come into this game with a winning record and plenty of momentum and both teams will be looking to leave with another victory on their record and a huge momentum boost.
It has been a roller coaster of a season of the Cleveland Cavaliers throughout the early part of the year as they’ve been unable to maintain any type of consistency, and they will look to change that narrative with a quality performance here in Boston on Tuesday. Cleveland has the potential to be one of the best teams in the league if they can get their roster to play to its potential, but 99% of the time it seems like it’s only Donovan Mitchell that shows up for their games. They will need him to step up a big way in this game on Tuesday night in Boston if they want to leave TD Garden with a huge victory early in the year.
Mitchell has been leading the way for this Cleveland Cavaliers team since his arrival at the beginning of last season when he was traded from the Utah Jazz. They will need him to continue leading this team throughout the remainder of the season, and if they can find some consistency throughout the year, they could easily finish as a top five seed in the Eastern Conference, despite how loaded it is. Cleveland comes into this game with 13 victories to their first 23 games of the season and they will look for victory number 14 here on Tuesday night on the road in one of their toughest tests of the year on the road against a solid Boston Celtics team.

The Boston Celtics are off to a fantastic start to the regular season, and they will look to maintain that solid start of the year with another victory here on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston has been one of the best teams in the league over the last several seasons, but they have been unable to reach their ultimate goal of winning an NBA championship throughout the last couple of years. They will be hoping that this year is the year that they can finally change that narrative and bring home a title, but they will need to remain healthy and consistent throughout the regular season if they want to accomplish that goal.
Boston has picked up 16 victories through their first 21 games of the regular season and they will look for their 17th victory of the year here on Tuesday night at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They are one of the top teams in the league this season once again, and they will look to further establish themselves as a championship contender with a comfortable victory in this game against Cleveland on Tuesday night. They are currently the top team in the conference, and they will look to grow that lead with another victory here in this one against Cleveland.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Boston is 10-0 at home
- Boston is 16-5 as a favorite this season
- Boston is 15-4 against the East
I expect this to be a close and competitive game on Tuesday night in Boston, but in the end I do look for the Boston Celtics to pick up the victory at home over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston is a very tough team to beat in general, but they are even harder to beat when they are playing on their home floor and that is exactly exactly what I expect out of this game on Tuesday night. As I look for Cleveland to take them the distance, but in the end, I just look for Boston to pull out enough stops to grab a huge much-needed victory here on Tuesday night for their 17th victory of the season.
