Cleveland visits Boston in NBA action on Wednesday, with fans able to watch Cavs vs. Celtics live streaming and televised game coverage. One of the hottest new rivalries to have emerged in the Eastern Conference will be lacking just a bit with the Cavs’ Isaiah Thomas taking the night off, and Celtics’ Gordon Hayward still sidelined since the start of the season. However, “King” LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will meet up again, as well as some of the other new stars for their teams. Here’s the latest game preview with NBA odds, start time, TV channels, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Celtics game live streaming online.
As reported by ESPN, former Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas will be sidelined to rest as he just recently made his season debut for the Cavs last night. In last night’s 127-110 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, Thomas played 19 minutes off the bench and shot 6-for-12 including a 3-for-8 three-point shooting rate. The point guard, who was part of the Celtics’ trade for Kyrie Irving, ended up with 17 points and three assists in his first outing for Cleveland. Now he’ll be back in Boston to watch as his new team takes on his old team once again. The two teams met at the start of the season with Thomas sidelined, and Boston lost one of their newest All-Star players, Gordon Hayward, to a gruesome injury that has him out for the season.
