Steve Aschburner from NBA.com joined Andy and Jeff to discuss the Cavs/Celtics series.

They discussed how important game 1 was to the Celtics because of their road struggles throughout the postseason.

They also compared the home-court advantage in Boston compared to what the Cavs enjoy at the Q.

They went through all the bad game 1's the Cavs have played in this postseason and discussed whether LeBron referring to them as feel-out games sets them up for poor performances.

They also chatted about the difference in style between the Cavs and the Celtics, including head coaches.

Last they touched on the federal ruling on sports gambling.
