Get ready to pop some corn and ice down the brews because tonight, we’ve got a clash of the titans that’s hotter than a Kardashian’s Instagram feed. The 48W-12L Boston Celtics, fresh off their recent massacre of the Golden State Warriors (140-88, in case you missed it), are packing their bags and heading over to the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. They’re set to go head-to-head with the 40W-21L Cleveland Cavaliers, who are still licking their wounds after their unfortunate 98-107 tumble against the Knicks. Tipoff is at 08:30PM EST, so make sure you’ve got your fantasy lineups locked and loaded. Both teams are neck and neck in the Eastern Conference, so the stakes are higher than Snoop Dogg on a Friday night. The over/under is set at a spicy 216.0, with the Celtics line at -7.5, and the Cavaliers line at 7.5. So, whether you’re a die-hard Beantown fan, a devoted Cavalier, or just a fantasy junkie looking for your next fix, this is one matchup you won’t want to miss.
