The Celtics come into the night as the second seed in the Eastern Conference with a 45-20 record in 65 games. They are 6-4 in their last ten games but are also in the middle of a two-game losing streak.
The Celtics have been formidable on the road this season, with an impressive 20-11 record in the 31 games they have played outside of Boston.
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are currently the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference, boasting a 40-26 record in 66 games.
The Cavs have been dominant at home, winning 27 of the 34 games they have hosted in Ohio, and have won six of their last ten games overall. In contrast, the Celtics have made it to the NBA Finals only once since 2010, while the Cavs have struggled to make it to the playoffs since the departure of LeBron James in 2018.
Despite this, both teams will undoubtedly be looking to put up a strong fight in their upcoming matchup.
