The Boston Celtics, coming off a solid win over the Memphis Grizzlies, go on the road tonight to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the biggest game of this Thursday Night slate.
The Celtics have been playing some very solid ball as of late as they are currently sitting at 19-13 on the season and have won six of their last seven games overall. The Celtics have been finding success so far this season with a mix of decent defense, solid offense, and some of the best assist numbers in the league. The Celtics have to be very excited with how well Isaiah Thomas is playing right now, especially coming back from a groin injury, and with is 26.8 points per game and 6.2 assists he is looking to have another extremely solid season.
The Cavaliers come into this game playing some of the best ball in the league right now and while they did lose to the Pistons in their last game Lebron did not play and Thompson and Love both played very limited minutes. The Cavaliers are a very solid rebounding team as well as elite on the offensive end where they are averaging 110.1 points per game.
Take the Cavaliers to get the win and cover in this one as they are the better team by a large margin and capable of winning this game by double digits with a healthy and rested Lebron James.
Cleveland Cavaliers -6.5 -110
