The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 111 to 99 tonight at the Quicken Loans Arena. Boston only had 8 players dressed for the game with Kris Humphries, Jared Sullinger, Jerryd Bayless and Rajon Rondo all earning DNP. Regardless this was no contest tonight; we were leading by 33 at one point.

What should have been an easy loss for us turned into back-to-back bad wins for the C’s, which will significantly hurt their lottery plans. On a side note, Chris Herren did the color commentary with Mike Gorman tonight and he was awesome. Despite the fact I've been a huge fan of Herren since that 30 for 30 came out, but he really did bring some good insight to the broadcast tonight.

The player of the game for the C’s was Kelly Olynyk who had the best game of his career, notching a double double with 25 points and 12 rebounds. Avery Bradley was lights out from 3-point land knocking down 5 of 6 for 25 points. Kyrie Irving played awful for the Cavs, shooting 3 of 15 for 15 points.

The Celtics return the court Monday night in Philly versus the 76ers at 7 PM.
