LeBron James likely to sit out Sunday's game in Boston (he needs the rest after that missed dunk)

Last night LeBron James, Kevin Love and two of the Cavs' other starters sat out the entire fourth quarter, significantly improving the Celtics' chances in their 99-90 victory in Cleveland.  It looks as though the C's may have some similar good fortune for Sunday's rematch in Boston:

Clearly LeBron could use some extra time off, because he didn't quite have his usual hops last night:

If the 37-42 Celtics win two of their remaining three games (also at home vs. Toronto Tuesday and in Milwaukee Wednesday) they're in the playoffs, regardless of what Indiana and Miami do.
