Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - With the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference already wrapped up, the Cleveland Cavaliers will rest four starters for Sunday's game against the Boston Celtics.
LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith will all miss the game, which is ultimately meaningless for Cleveland but crucial for Boston.
The Celtics are battling for one of the final two playoffs spots in the East. They enter Sunday in a tie with Brooklyn for the seventh seed, with Indiana lurking one game back. All three teams are in action, as Brooklyn is set to visit the Bucks and Indiana hosts Oklahoma City.
