After a 118-102 win over the Toronto Raptors on Christmas, the Boston Celtics are back in action Friday afternoon.
Boston has won four in a row, propelling the C's to a 21-7 record -- good for second in the Eastern Conference. The Cavaliers, on the other hand, have struggled immensely at 9-21 this season.
Jaylen Brown is coming off a 30-point performance while Kemba Walker also put up 22 points in Toronto. While Brown and Walker are coming off stellar performances, Marcus Smart remains questionable as of early Friday afternoon with an eye infection.
The C's have won both previous meetings against Cleveland this season, most recently on Dec. 9, 110-88.
