Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 5 Live Stream: How to Watch NBA Playoffs Online

With NBA Eastern Conference Finals well underway, the series is dead even. This series is between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. The Celtics entered the season with hopes of dethroning the Cavaliers as Eastern Conference champions. So far this series, the home team has dominated every game. Now, the series is returning to Boston where the Celtics are undefeated this postseason. However, the Cavaliers need to win either game five or game seven on the road in order to return to the NBA Finals. Expect the Cavaliers to lay it all on the line tonight in what should be a competitive contest.

Cleveland’s success is due to its best player LeBron James. In the regular season, James  averaged 27.5 points per game on an absurd shooting percentage of 54.2% from the floor. However, James has been even better in the postseason. In 15 playoff games, James has averaged 33.7 points per game along with 9.0 assists and 8.7 rebounds per game. Although he is in his 15th NBA season, James has showed no signs of slowing down and the Celtics seem to have no way of stopping him. Expect James to have a huge game if the Cavaliers plan on winning this contest.

Boston’s regular season success was due to its star point guard Kyrie Irving. During the offseason, the Celtics shocked the NBA world by trading its star point guard Isaiah Thomas to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Kyrie Irving. Since joining the Celtics, Irving was phenomenal and was also a borderline MVP candidate. This season, Irving averaged 24.4 points per game along with 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds. However, Irving will be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.

In Irving’s absence, young players like Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have taken over most of the team’s scoring duties. In his second NBA season, Brown averaged 14.5 points per game and 4.9 rebounds a game while shooting a respectable 46.5% from the field. In his rookie season, Tatum averaged 13.9 points per game along with 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting an impressive 47.5% from the floor. If Boston wants to win this game and ultimately the series without its best player, Brown and Tatum will need to play extremely well.

As for my prediction, I have to side with the Cavaliers. Although the Celtics are clearly the better team, one does not simply doubt LeBron reaching the finals again. The Cavaliers desperately do not want to return to Boston for game seven and I personally think that LeBron will carry them to a road victory tonight.
