Cavaliers LIVE begins 30 minutes prior to tipoff with postgame coverage immediately after.

FROM ONE HEAVYWEIGHT TO ANOTHER

The Cavs took on and took down one Eastern Conference heavyweight in the Brooklyn Nets the last two games. Today, the Wine & Gold will have a chance at taking down another in the Boston Celtics.

LAST TIME OUT

It wasn’t quite as dramatic as double-overtime, but the Cavs got another rather convincing win over the Nets on Friday evening. In a follow-up performance to his career-night, Collin Sexton scored 20-plus points in a game yet again, scoring 25. His backcourt mate, Darius Garland, returned, scoring 11 points. Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince had another strong game off the Cavalier bench.
