Boston Celtics (+5) @ Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Pick: I obviously like both these teams to win a lot of games this year. I just think that playing with Shaquille O’Neal takes some getting used to, for everyone, and thus I’ll probably go against Cleveland early in the season when playing as a favorite over other great teams. This is a very good Celtics team. Rasheed Wallace only helps their chances against the Cavs, and Rajon Rondo looks even better than he did last season. I know the home team wins this game most of the time, but an opening night battle royal between the Celtics and Cavs could mean anything. I’ll take the Celtics, a team more comfortable with each other could go a long way here.
