As the 2024 NBA Playoffs continue, the Cleveland Cavaliers (4) now face the Boston Celtics (1) in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Celtics enter the series as clear favorites after a dominant performance in the first round over Miami. However, they face a tougher test against the Cavaliers.

Despite their regular-season success against the Cavs (2-1), the Celtics must now navigate the absence of Kristaps Porzingis. For the Cavaliers, the spotlight falls on Donovan Mitchell, whose success hinges on support from his teammates — particularly Darius Garland.

Defensively, both teams face critical matchups and adjustments. The Celtics must contain Mitchell, while the Cavaliers’ defense contends with the absence of Jarrett Allen and Dean Wade.

For Boston, efficient scoring near the basket becomes paramount, especially in the absence of their leading post-up threat. Cleveland must address depth issues, particularly in bench minutes, to counter the Celtics’ formidable reserves.
