Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavs
Eastern conference finals, game 2
Boston Celtics are 1-0 up after they crashed Cleveland in Game 1 also here at home. Back then the final score was 108:83. So huge 25 pts victory. The Celtics took early control and there was no doubt later on who would win.
Today I can't say with high confidence what could happen. I have feeling the Cavs will bounce back and tie the score on one win each. But it's not strong opinion, it's just a lean.
I mean, there is no doubt LeBron James is going to have A game after terrible performance in Game 1. But the question is how big contribution James will have from his teammates. When other players are on good level then the Cavs are very hard to beat. Ask Toronto Raptors about that. But when it's only on LeBron, then betting on Cavs is a bit risky. When no one is in the mood including James like in Game 1, then it's 20 to 30 Cavs loss.
So, no strong opinion there but I have strong opinion about totals. IMO this time we are going to see high scoring game. Offered totals around 203 are not too high if you ask me.
Firstly, Cleveland definitely will play better than the last time. Whether that would be enough for victory, it depends on the above said. But in any case, win or not Cleveland IMO will score 100+ pts.
Secondly, Boston is amazing and those 108 pts from Game 1 are not coincidence. This team is now 8-0 at home in the playoffs and note they already have had tough opposition (Bucks and 76ers). Boston is great coached team. By opinion of many they have the best coach in thd league. IMO not, for me Greg Popovic is still No.1 but among those younger coaches, Brad Stevens definitely is the best and surely way better than that clown on the Cavs bench.
The bottom line, huge coaching mismatch here and that's probably one more reason to skip betting on Cleveland for now.
Over is the winning play in Game 2.
