Cavaliers Analysis: Looking for the upset

Cleveland has unfortunately relied almost entirely on Donovan Mitchell to move themselves up the playoffs, which can prove to be their doom against a defensive proficient side such as Boston. Spider put on an impressive performance throughout the 7 game series against the Orlando Magic. Over the course of 7 games, Mitchell maintained an average of 28.7 points, 5 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.4 steals in 37.4 minutes. He managed to score 23 points or more in 5 out of his last 7 games, with a standout 50 point performance during the 103-96 loss in Game 6 at Orlando.


Boston Analysis: Favorites for the title

The Celtics have been a force to reckon with this season, mainly due to their entire 2-way starting roster, with all members more than capable of playing contact defense while performing points wise. Boston boasts 3 players who are scoring 21 points or more this postseason, with shooting guard Jaylen Brown leading the pack. Through 5 games, he has been averaging 22.8 points, 7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1 steal.

Our basketball analysis suggests Donovan Mitchell will be suppressed and tired out by Boston, which ultimately sets the stage for the Leprechauns to move up in the postseason.
