CLE VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 1, 14th May – Fantasy Team News
Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Finals, Game – 1
CLE VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The rematch of the last years’ Eastern Conference finals as Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Boston to take on Boston Celtics in the 1st game of this series. Will Cavaliers be able to defend their Eastern Conference throne?
In a parallel world, this series could have been scripted by a poet who likes a poetic finish to the sports encounters. In that dream match, Kyrie Irving would have been fit and firing and would have been going toe-to-toe against his once-best friend and big brother LeBron James who he deserted in the off-season. Then there would be Isaiah Thomas, Boston Celtics’ own son, trying to plot against his former team with his newly found friends. It would have been a dream matchup but are not living in a dream.
Though, it’s still Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals barring some reality checkers. Kyrie Irving is out injured and won’t be playing in this game, while Cavaliers’ supposedly superstar Isaiah Thomas couldn’t cope with the expectations and is now trying to find his foot in Los Angeles with Lakers.
LeBron James has been quite phenomenal in the postseason. He single-handedly defeated Indiana Pacers in the first round but quite remarkably no Cavaliers player couldn’t even average in double-digit in that series. That’s why punters cut through Cavaliers’ players with their treacherous judgment as they backed Toronto to ripped the Mickey out of LeBron’s team in the semifinals.
But the four-time NBA MVP seemed to have given his teammates some much-needed coaxing as all the players improved their game significantly and Cavaliers ended by destroying Raptors in the semifinals.
Boston, on the other hand, have been punching above their weights all the season. They lost Gordon Hayward to a leg injury on the opening night, quite coincidentally against Cavaliers, lost Kyrie Irving before the start of the playoffs, and here they are trying to write some fresh pages in their renowned history.

CLE VS BOS DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Both the teams are coming from the one-sided affairs in the last series. Boston Celtics made the easy work of Philadelphia 76ers as they won 4-1 in the semifinals, while Cleveland Cavaliers proved the punters yet again after trouncing Eastern Conference leaders Toronto Raptors 4-0 in the last round.
Celtics have been quite solid in home games in the postseason. In fact, they haven’t lost a single game at TD Garden in the playoffs. Cavaliers, on the other hand, have been playing in the same aggressive way whether it’s Quicken Loans Arena or the away match.
With LeBron James in their side who seems to be on a personal quest to find glory for his team, we are backing Cavaliers to win this game.
