Speculation is that the Cavs will not rest their starters against the Celtics in Boston tomorrow night. They play Orlando at home tonight and then travel here to play a game that will most likely determine the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.
This is a surprising move to me because I expected Lebron to cower away from a big moment per usual. I figured we would see Korver and J.R. Smith throw up 80 shots and the Celtics to half-ass their way throughout a boring game. Instead, Cleveland is coming in with their big guns and if the Celtics were to win tomorrow night, Cleveland should get nervous.
A lot of fans are saying this number one seed doesn’t mean shit, but I think a win tomorrow night boosts confidence going into the playoffs, and puts some pressure on Lebron. Finishing at 1 also gives the Celtics home-court throughout the playoffs and I think that’s a real advantage. The Garden’s a fucking nut house during the playoffs.
