FROM HEAVY WEIGHT TO OTHER

The Cavs faced and defeated an Eastern Conference heavyweight at the Brooklyn Nets in the last two games. Today, Wine & Gold will have the chance to take down another one in the Boston Celts.

LAST TIME OUT

It was not quite as dramatic as the double overtime, but the Cavs got another pretty convincing victory over the Nets on Friday night. In a performance later in the evening of his career, Collin Sexton scored another 20 points in a game again, scoring 25. His defense mate, Darius Garland, came back, scoring 11 points. Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince had another strong game outside the Cavalier’s bench.
