Team Analysis: (Don’t forget to check 12BET for the best Free Betting Tips)
Boston’s head coach Brad Stevens did a great job to bring his team into the conference finals with a 4-1 semifinal series 114-112 victory to eliminate the Philadelphia 76ers. Frankly, the Celtics are having a good year despite of not having their two All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward in the lineup. Remember in the first round? Boston had to battle a tough seven-game series against the Milwaukee Bucks before blowing past the 76ers in a five-game series.
The Cavs aims to reach the NBA Finals for a four straight season following their clean sweep against the Toronto Raptors. Prior to that, they’ve been luckily to beat Indiana Pacers in a seven-game series in the first round with LeBron James playing heavy minutes in these playoffs as he is looking to reach the NBA Finals for an eighth straight year.
Young Celtics will try to stop LeBron and the Cavaliers in their best-of-seven playoff series in the Eastern Conference Finals. Of course, Boston will never forget last year’s Eastern Finals after they were beaten 4-1 by the Cavs. On the other hand, we expect Cavs’ preparation heading into this very important Game 1 away from home.
