The Match-Up: 1:00 PM Cleveland Cavaliers(60-16) at Boston Celtics(47-28)

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on an a tear. They have won 9 of their last 10 including an impressive home victory over Atlanta on Friday, 93-88. How will Cleveland fare in Boston on Easter?

LeBron James posted a line of 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 6 assists in Friday’s victory. Over his last five games, James has averaged 29.8 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists. Teammate Mo Williams has played a superb Robin to LeBron’s Batman recently, scoring 24 and 21 respectively over his last two games. The Boston Celtics on the other hand have struggled recently.

The team has dropped three straight home games, including an embarrassing 119-114 loss to the Houston Rockets on Friday. Star forward Kevin Garnett has been extremely frustrated with the team’s recent struggles. He was fined $25,000 for some inappropriate comments after the team’s loss on Wednesday to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Boston has lost four of their last six entering this contest. James has averaged 35 points in three meetings against the Celtics this season. The Cavs have won two of three against Boston this year(including one in Dropkick Murphy’s home town) and I expect them to make it three of four on Sunday afternoon.

X-Factor: James has averaged 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists on major holidays this season.

The Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers (60-16)

April Record: 2-1

Side Note: You may wonder why I didn’t pick the Yankees over Red Sox. I could care less whether or not the Yankees win tomorrow night. As long as they win their last game during playoffs, it’s all good.
