Celtics’ upcoming game vs. Cavaliers has a new tip-off time

Boston sports fans hoping to watch Tom Brady without interruption this weekend are in luck.

The Boston Celtics’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, originally scheduled for 4 p.m. ET, has been moved to 7 p.m. ET, the team announced Wednesday.

The change gives the Celtics a few more hours to adjust after a two-game road trip to Philadelphia which begins Wednesday night against the 76ers.

For locals who have been following a certain former New England Patriots quarterback, Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at 3:05 p.m. ET, so fans can watch that full contest as a leadup to Celtics-Cavs at night.

The C’s are aiming to get back on track after a 30-point loss to the New York Knicks last Sunday. Back-to-back games against the 9-5 Sixers present a tough challenge, but there’s a chance Celtics star Jayson Tatum could return for Friday’s game.

You can catch all three contests — Wednesday in Philly, Friday in Philly and Sunday vs. Cleveland — right here on NBC Sports Boston.
