NBA basketball:

Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics (NL): The Cavaliers are one win away from establishing themselves as the top seed in the NBA’s upcoming playoffs. The Celtics are struggling, of late, having lost three straight games at home. The Cavaliers haven’t fare well at the Garden in the past; they’ve won just once in nine games the past three seasons. But they’re improved and have beat the Celtics two straight this season, once at the Garden, 108-88, on February 25. They should get it done here. Cleveland by 7 points.


San Antonio Spurs at L.A. Lakers -6.5: The Lakers are happy to be home after a grueling road trip, which started off on March 24 with a nice win over these same Spurs. The Lakers knocked off Utah on Friday at Staples Center. The Spurs have kicked it up as we enter the season’s home stretch, notching wins over Orlando, Houston, Boston and Cleveland over the past 10 days. They should make this one against the Lakers, whom they beat at home back in January, a dog fight. San Antonion +6.5
