CLE VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction Game 4, 22nd May – Fantasy Team News
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Boston Celtics
NBA Post Season
Eastern Conference Finals, Game – 4, Celtics lead the series 2-1
CLE VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
There were many scenarios that were in play before the start of this two-game series at Quicken Loans Arena. Cleveland Cavaliers wanted to avoid a 3-0 deficit and face a potential eliminator in the 4th game in front of their own fans, while Boston didn't want to head into the 5th game with the series tied at 2-2.
But following a humungous 116-86 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, Boston's nightmares may be the most likely scenario that may come true. With the win, the Cavs cut down the deficit to 2-1 and as they say the team that wins the last game is the most likely team to win the next, a 2-2 score-line could become a reality.
LeBron James scored 27 points and had another 12 assists in that game, while five other Cavaliers touched the double-digit mark as Cleveland won all the four quarters in the match. While for Boston, Jayson Tatum topped the scoring charts but could manage only 18 points with Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown were reduced to just 13 and 10 points respectively.
But the biggest job was done by Cavaliers' Center Tristan Thompson who man-marked Al Horford so efficiently that Celtics' power-forward could score just seven points on 2-for-4 shooting while Thompson put up 10 points on the other end. A similar performance in the game-4 may go a long way in deciding where this series might end up in the end.

CLE VS BOS DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
Cavaliers are on the ropes and need all the big name players to get themselves out of this big hole. But the good news is that they have all the big name players available for selection and no player is injured or suspended for this game.
Boston Celtics have played quite an amazing Basketball in the first two games. If they manage to keep their high standards in the rest of the series, we may see this series wrapped up in the 4th game. It's quite unbelievable to think that the Greens manage to go this far despite their best player Kyrie Irving missing the entire playoff series through injury.
The former Cleveland Cavaliers point-guard is still out uninjured as he is nursing his knee injury. Meanwhile, Gordon Hayward, Shane Larkin and Daniel Theis are out injured as well.
Meanwhile, Gordon Hayward and Daniel Theis are also missing this match due to their respective injuries.
Shane Larkin missed Celtics' last two games in the semifinals against Philadelphia 76ers due to a shoulder injury. He has been upgraded to doubtful ahead of this game, and so his inclusion depends on the game-time decision.

CLE VS BOS DREAM11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Boston Celtics showed their power in the first two games as they outplayed Cleveland Cavaliers in all corners. To some extent, it was a shock not the 2-0 score-line but the manner in which LeBron James and company were outplayed in those two games.
But Cavaliers roared back in the 3rd game with an outstanding 30-point win and considering this game will be played at Quicken Loans Arena, backing Cavaliers to win looks like a good bet.
