The past six months have told us the Cleveland Cavaliers are likely to struggle Wednesday night against the Boston Celtics.
It’s an important game — the teams have matching 50-27 records and the winner would hold a one-game lead for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference with four games remaining for each team. Cleveland would hold the tiebreaker based on conference winning percentage should Boston win tonight and the two teams finish with identical overall records. But the Cavs are in what they’ve repeatedly shown is a bad spot for them.
