Cleveland
Boston

[BOSTON] — The Boston Celtics played host to the Cleveland Cavaliers last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 91-114 loss has the C's and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps Boston's record down to 50-28 on the season, while the victory gives Cleveland a 51-27 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Celtics did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

An impressive performance from LeBron James led all players in the contest and his 36 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 39 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Most importantly, the Cavaliers managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as James keeps producing at this rate and Cleveland keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

In addition to the contributions from James, the Cavs also benefited from a big night out of Kevin Love. With 15 points, 16 rebounds and 1 assists, Love did an admirable job helping guide his club to a much needed road victory.

At the end of the day, the homeside was beaten down in a performance that they stood little chance of winning. If there's one thing any coach will offer a team coming off of a loss like this one it's that success hinges on a better defensive output. Not only did the Cavs take advantage of Boston, they managed to put forth an offensive outburst far in excess of their season average. Boston knows this - as would any other NBA squad in their position, so don't be surprised if the Celtics end up running plenty of laps after this one.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
