The Cleveland Cavaliers made a few changes in their roster trading for Dante Exum from the Utah Jazz for Jordan Clarkson. This will give more minutes and room for Collin Sexton to shoot the ball even more. In their game against the Atlanta Hawks, Sexton had 25 points and shot 12-20 from the field. Kevin Love has his usual numbers but Tristan Thompson is on a slump lately. Kevin Porter Jr. is the player that maximizes the void left by Clarkson as he did 15 points and nine rebounds. He needs more polishing to his game as Porter also committed 5 turnovers in 23 minutes. Even if Exum plays already, he is going to be a non-factor and will squeeze in to the Cavs rotation bit by bit.

The Celtics came to Toronto this Christmas Day and took home the victory. Jalen Brown is also making a good case to be voted by fans to the NBA All-Star game as he did 30 points, six rebounds and four assists. Enes Kanter is getting more consistent coming off the bench and with 18 minutes, he already registered a double-double. Celtics need their big men to click against two prolific rebounders in Love and Thompson. Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum will be there with their numbers but the big addition right now is getting Gordon Hayward back to the starting linuep. Against Toronto, Hayward had 14 points, six assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block. He was also efficient shooting 6-of-9 from the field and two of them were three-pointers.
