How to watch Cavaliers vs. Celtics: TV channel, NBA live stream info, start time

Through 3 Quarters

A victory for the Boston Celtics would push them over .500, and after three quarters they have put themselves in a good position to make this happen. Sitting on a score of 74-65, they have looked like the better squad out there today, but there’s still one more quarter to play.

Center Robert Williams III has led the way so far for the Celtics, as he has dropped a double-double on 12 points and 12 rebounds. This makes it three consecutive games in which Williams III has had at least ten rebounds.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been led by point guard Darius Garland, who so far has 20 points and six assists. Those points put Garland near his season high of 21.

Cleveland has lost 80% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

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.
