Through 1 Quarter

A win for the Boston Celtics would push them over .500, and after one quarter they have put themselves in a good position to make this happen. They are way out in front with a 22-12 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nobody has stood out from the pack for Boston offensively yet.

The Celtics and Cleveland came into this contest with previous-game wins. We’ll see if Boston can maintain their lead to polish off another victory and cancel out Cleveland’s positive energy.

What to Know

The Boston Celtics have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They and the Cleveland Cavaliers will face off at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 13 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. The Celtics will be seeking to avenge the 102-94 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played May 12th.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Boston ultimately got the result they were hoping for this past Friday with a 122-113 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Point guard Dennis Schroder was the offensive standout of the contest for Boston, picking up 38 points along with eight boards.

Meanwhile, everything went Cleveland’s way against the Detroit Pistons this past Friday as they made off with a 98-78 win. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Cleveland had established a 74-52 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to point guard Darius Garland, who had 21 points and seven assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Boston is expected to win a tight contest this past Saturday. They are currently five-for-five against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Their wins bumped the Celtics to 6-6 and the Cavaliers to 8-5. Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
