BOSTON, MA -- The Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Boston as a shell of themselves following a spike in Covid cases within the team. JB Bickerstaff's squad struggled mightily from beyond the arc, shooting an abysmal 9-38 from beyond the arc. The Boston Celtics went on to comfortably cruise to a 111-101 win over the visiting Cavaliers.
Cavaliers fan favorite Tacko Fall got the start for the first time in his Cleveland career and finished with a final line of 4 points and 10 boards, with a total of 2 blocks. Darius Garland had a hot shooting night, leading all Cavaliers in scoring with 28 points on 11-22 shooting.
The Cavaliers will be off through Christmas as they will look to get healthy ahead of their match up with Toronto Raptors. Tip-off on Sunday is set for 6:00 pm ET at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
