COACH: John Beilein (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Collin Sexton (16.7 ppg), G Darius Garland (Rookie), F Cedi Osman (13.0 ppg), F Kevin Love (17.0 ppg, 22 games), Tristan Thompson (10.9 ppg, 10.2 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Channing Frye, G J.R. Smith.
KEY ADDITIONS: Beilein, Garland, C/F John Henson, G Kevin Porter Jr., G Dylan Windler.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Garland could accelerate the Cavs' rebuilding project. Before a left knee injury cut short his freshman season at Vanderbilt, the 6-foot-2 playmaker was ranked as the top player in his class, ahead of even Zion Williamson. His pairing with Sexton gives Cleveland a young, dynamic backcourt drawing comparisons to Portland's duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Sexton's growth as a rookie was extraordinary, and it will be interesting to see how he blends with Garland, who is more of a traditional point guard. Love's future, which is always in question, could hinge on how quickly the team's youngsters bloom. If the Cavs get the right offer, Love could be traded despite his hopes to stay with Cleveland.
OUTLOOK: Beilein's forte in college was player development and the former Michigan coach appears to be an ideal fit for Cleveland's youth movement. He'll push the Cavs and make sure they play hard, and Love and Thompson will give the squad invaluable leadership. Injuries have sidetracked Love the past few seasons, but the 31-year-old feels physically refreshed and is committed to showing his young teammates what it takes. It's going to be another long season in Cleveland, but there appears to be a promising future.
COACH: Brad Stevens (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (25.6 ppg), G Gordon Hayward (11.5), F Jaylen Brown. (13.0), F Jayson Tatum (15.7), C Enes Kanter (13.7)
KEY LOSSES: G Kyrie Irving, F/C Al Horford, F Marcus Morris, G Terry Rozier.
KEY ADDITIONS: Walker, Kanter, G Romeo Langford, F Grant Williams, G Carsen Edwards.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: It starts with Walker, who jumped at the chance in free agency to join a perennial playoff team. Following Kyrie Irving's departure to Brooklyn, it will also give Walker the opportunity to do what Irving couldn't: lead the Celtics to an NBA Finals. He'll need help, though. And that will again put the spotlight on youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Both took small steps backward last season as infighting and chemistry issues plagued the team. Now, both will have key roles, much like they did two seasons ago when Irving missed the playoffs and they helped get the team to the Eastern Conference finals. It's an especially big year for Brown. The Celtics have until Oct. 21 to decide whether to extend his contract for another season or let him become a restricted free agent next summer.
OUTLOOK: The Celtics are going to have to tweak their style of play a little without Irving or Horford. Irving was their chief scorer and Horford played a huge role facilitating offense in the half court as well as on defense. Kanter is a big man that can run, which should fit in nicely with the up-tempo style this athletic roster is built for. Whether this team is ultimately able to be a threat to win the East will depend on how well Walker leads and if the starting unit gets enough support from its youthful group of reserves.
Hayward nearing return as Celtics host Cavaliers

After back-to-back wins against two of the best teams in the league, the Boston Celtics switch gears to face one of the NBA's worst teams Monday night when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Celtics, winners of five of their last six, are coming off victories of 19 and 13 points over the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets, respectively. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, have lost six straight and 12 of 13, a skid extended by a 47-point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

It marked the second time this season Cleveland has lost by more than 40 points, after a 143-101 defeat against the Dallas Mavericks on Nov. 22.

"Our schedule has been relentless," first-year Cavaliers coach John Beilein said. "Almost everywhere that we've played has been a playoff team. Teams are just better than us. There have been a couple recent games that we could have won. All the other games that we've lost were against teams that are frankly better than us at this point of the season."

Boston certainly fits that mold. The Celtics have been one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, especially at home, where they are a perfect 9-0. And the bulk of that has come without Gordon Hayward, who returned to practice Sunday and is questionable Monday as he nears return ahead of schedule from a broken hand that has sidelined him since Nov. 9.

"The last couple of days have been really good," Hayward said. "Tomorrow's a possibility."

Without Hayward, the Celtics have received extra contributions from the dynamic duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Such was on dis the Nuggets, when Tatum scored 26 points and Brown added 21 as Boston coasted to victory over one of the Western Conference's top teams.

"We feed off each other," Brown said. "We have different games, kind of opposite, but it makes sense. It's like fire and ice."

Celtics coach Brad Stevens expressed his appreciation for how Brown and Tatum have worked together.

"Those guys are still getting better," Stevens said. "They're clearly improving in a lot of areas, but I think they're really enjoying playing together and figuring it out with the rest of our team. And it is more fun to be a central player that we're going to in those occasions, and they're taking advantage of it and doing a really good job of it."

That type of sync between young players is what the Cavaliers hope to progress toward. Reportedly willing to deal veteran big man Kevin Love ahead of the February trade deadline, Cleveland is expected to build around its young backcourt of second-year guard Collin Sexton and rookie Darius Garland, who have combined to lead the team in scoring across the last five games.

"There's no question that we're making strides with them everyday," Beilein said last week. "Their experience playing at this level is obviously limited. It's fun watching it as it happens. For me, it is. Never quick enough, but it is (fun)."

The Celtics have won the last five meetings against the Cavs, including a 119-113 victory in Cleveland last month.
