CLE VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 2, 16th May – Fantasy Team News
Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Finals, Game – 2
CLE VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Even Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t have seen it coming. The Boston Celtics juggernaut absolutely destroyed LeBron James and Cavaliers in the first game of the Eastern Conference finals and if there was anything positive for the visitors in that humiliation, it was the gap which could have been bigger had hosts not taken their foot off the gas in the end.
In the end, the 17-times NBA Champions defeated the 2016 Champions 108-83 at TD Garden and the Greens took a commanding 1-0 lead in this 7 game series. But the scoreline wouldn’t give you the true picture of the game.
The Cavs were 0-of-12 on three-pointers in the first half and missed their 15 straight attempts from beyond the arc by the time Kyle Korver sent the ball into the hoop from outside the paint in the 3rd quarter. Even the mighty LeBron James wasn’t untouched by the Cavaliers’ pathetic performance. He could only muster 15 points in the game which was a way below than his postseason average of 34 points before that game. The four-time MVP was poor, to say the least, from every corner of the court. He missed shots after shots and Cavaliers were even -26 in the first half when he was on the court, his worst ever plus-minus in a single half in his postseason career.
Celtics were led by Jaylon Brown who orchestrated Cavaliers’ demolition in the first quarter. He led the scoring charts with his 23 points, while Al Horford (20), Marcus Morris (21) and Jayson Tatum (16) made some significant contributions in the game. Meanwhile, Kevin Love scored the most points for Cavaliers as he finished with 17 points in the game.

CLE VS BOS DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
Kyrie Irving vs LeBron James – It’s a battle every Basketball fan would have loved to see, but quite unluckily, the former Cleveland Cavaliers Point-Guard, Irving, is still out injured, He had a knee surgery in April and had been ruled out for the entire playoff season. So don’t choose him in your CLE vs BOS Dream11.
Meanwhile, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis are also missing this match due to their respective injuries.
Shane Larkin missed the last game as well as Celtics’ last two games in the semifinals against Philadelphia 76ers due to a shoulder injury. He is expected to be out in this game as well.
The 2016 Champions have no injury concerns ahead of this match. But on the back of that horrid performance in the first game, you can expect some changes in the squad.

CLE VS BOS DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
After the first game, it would be easy to predict Boston Celtics finally ending Cleveland Cavaliers’ dominance in the Eastern Conference. But it’s not only Cleveland Cavaliers we are talking about, it’s Lebron James and we know what kind of things he can achieve on a Basketball court. If a team’s chips are down and you need somebody to lead by an example, it must be James, and we are backing to him come roaring in the 2nd game.
An away win is our prediction-
