The Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The Boston Celtics need a victory here in order to snap a four-game losing streak. The Boston Celtics are averaging 112.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 108 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is averaging 23.8 points and 7.1 assists while Jayson Tatum is averaging 15.9 points and 6.2 rebounds. Marcus Morris is the third double-digit scorer and Al Horford is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Boston Celtics are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 80.5 percent from the free throw line. The Boston Celtics are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.5 rebounds per game. The Boston Celtics have lost six of their last nine road games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers also need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.4 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 49 percent shooting. Kevin Love is averaging 17.9 points and 11.4 rebounds while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17 points and 2.4 assists. Collin Sexton is the third double-digit scorer and Cedi Osman is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.6 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won four of their last five home games.

The Celtics are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Cavaliers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Celtics are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Cleveland and the home team is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over is 10-3 in Cavaliers last 13 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 6-2 in Celtics last 8 overall.

We're almost in April and the Boston Celtics still cant figure things out and things may actually be worse than before after blowing a massive lead to the Charlotte Hornets. Right when the Celtics feel like they're going to turn the corner, they have these games where they crap the bed and remind you that nothing has changed. I'm kind of done trying to figure them out. The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a lot of success winning games at home lately and enter this contest shooting a healthy 47.1 percent from the field in their last five games. I want the points if picking this game, as I have no confidence in the Celtics at the moment.

Pick:
Cleveland Cavaliers +6.5
