Cavs vs Nets: times, TV, how and where to watch NBA online
Everything you need to know about the Cleveland Cavaliers vs the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. How and where to watch.
The NBA playoffs are finally here, after the end of the regular NBA season wrapped up on Sunday, with Tuesday night bringing the first bundle of play-in games to decide the final seed in both the Eastern and Western conferences.
The Cleveland Cavaliers head to Brooklyn to take on Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Nets, at 7 p.m. ET
The Brooklyn Nets, who are currently the No. 7 seed, are not where anyone expected them to be this season. They started as favorites but struggled to keep their momentum going with Kevin Durant’s injury, Kyrie Irving’s half season play, and James Harden’s trade demand.
Cleveland, on the other hand, have shown elevated play this season, especially after their last year’s fourth-worst record in the league. Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen have been performing at speedlight and Evan Mobley has had a breakout rookie season.
The winner of Tuesday’s game will go on to meet with the No.2 seeded Boston Celtics in the first round, while the other one will have one more chance on Friday to make it to the postseason.
