Reflecting on the Cleveland Cavaliers falling to the Boston Celtics last night, Nick Wright reveals to Cris Carter and Jenna Wolfe why his perception of both squads won't change despite him being surprised about the outcome of last night's game.

- I was surprised by the result. I text you before the game, I'm like hey CC, what line you got on this game? I thought I saw the Cavs were three point underdogs. I thought the Cavs would win the game outright. So I was surprised by it. You mentioned the back to backs. It's odd, but it's true. LeBron James, in his career, averages more points on the second night of a back to back, than he does on regular rest.

He doesn't seem to usually-- he's not a guy that seems to wear down. And early in the game, it didn't look like he was wearing down at all. He was seven of eight from the field to start. So I was surprised that the Celtics won, and won convincingly the way they did. But does this change my opinion? No. And it shouldn't change anyone's opinion. Whatever you thought going into last night's game, if you're in the Chris Mannix field.

I'm sure he'll join us sometime in the next few weeks. The Celtics are the favorite. Then good, you should have-- you should still feel that way. If you're in the correct field, that the Cavs are obviously the favorite, you should still feel that way. Let me-- last night was the outlier of outlier performances. Maybe it was because of the discrepancy in rest. But here's what I know about last night. Last night, Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, and a guy named Adam Theis, Daniel Theis, pardon me, combined to go 9 of 14 from three.

Meanwhile, Kevin Love, Jae Crowder, and Dwayne Wade, combined to go 5 of 33 from the field. If Kevin Love is going to have the worst game of his career, Jae Cutler is going to have his worst game of the season, Dwayne Wade is going have his worst game in two months, at the same time Terry Rozier has the best game of his career, guess what's going to happen? The Celtics are going to win, despite Kyrie Irving playing poorly. Like, nothing that we saw last night is duplicable. So no, it's not going to change my opinion.
