What channel is Celtics vs. Cavs on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 3 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom

The Celtics and Cavaliers shift their second-round series to Cleveland even at 1-1 following the Cavaliers’ stunning blowout victory in Game 2.

In fact, for the second consecutive series to begin the 2024 NBA Playoffs, Boston has suffered a Game 2 letdown. This time, Cleveland ran away with a 118-94 victory, shooting 55 percent from the field and 46 percent from beyond the arc.

Six different Cavaliers scored in double-figures, including Donovan Mitchell (29 points, eight assists), Evan Mobley (21 points, 10 rebounds) and Caris LeVert (21 points).

Boston, which lost just four times at TD Garden in the regular season, has now lost twice in five home games during the NBA Playoffs. Game 2 was tied 51-51 at halftime, but the Celtics were outscored by 24 points in the second half.

Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Derrick White all struggled from the field, while Boston surely felt the absence of Kristaps Porzingis, who remains sidelined with a calf injury suffered last series against the Heat.

Now, Cleveland has seized home-court advantage and momentum, especially as they await the return of All-Star center Jarrett Allen, who has missed five straight games with a rib contusion.

Here is everything that you need to know about Game 3 between the Celtics and Cavaliers.
