The emphasis now as we start getting deep into this playoff series will be on the defensive end. Each possession is very important and both teams will work the clock looking for that good look as shot selection becomes extremely important. Cleveland has to defend Rondo and that will be impacting the tempo of this game.

With both teams bringing the intensity on the defensive end we will have less ball possessions that will impact scoring. Let’s take the points with the Celtics in the first half as I expect a grind out game this deep into this series.

Bet Boston Celtics +4 ½ points in the First Half against the Cleveland Cavaliers
