It all gets underway at 8:30PM Eastern Time for Game 6 on TNT TV as the Cleveland Cavaliers are home to the Boston Celtics. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the home side Cleveland Cavaliers favored by -7 with the over under line set at 201 ½ points.

Boston is up 3-2 in this series with the 96-83 victory to Cleveland in Game 5 at home. Boston closed favored by -1 ½ points. The Celtics have won and covered each playoff game this year on their home court. The team defends better at home and held the Cavaliers to under 100 points for the third time in this series. But in Cleveland the Celtics lost both games giving up 111 and 116 points. Boston is a young team and struggled shooting the basketball in their defeats at Cleveland. In this series the Celtics are shooting only 42.7% and much of that poor shooting has been on the road. Al Horford looks like a much different player on the road. He is not as aggressive getting inside for close looks at the bucket and for defensive rebounding.

LeBron James has been carrying the Cavaliers in the playoffs and this series has been no different. What has been frustrating all series long has been the play of the Cavalier starting guards George Hill and JR Smith. It was a poor Game 5 for Smith who went 1 of 6 for 3 points and George Hill going 1 of 5 for 7 points. Kyle Korver did not have a good shooting game in Boston hitting only 2 of 6 for seven points. Kevin Love scored 14 points for the only Cavaliers players scoring in double digits. Starting with Game 4 this series will be played every other day and fatigue could be a factor for the older Cavaliers team. LeBron James looked like he was fighting it in their defeat at Boston. Celtics have the younger legs on the court.
