Too Close For Comfort: Celtics Hold Off Cavaliers

The Celtics survived a 32-point outburst by Kyrie Irving, more than one bad turnover by Jordan Crawford, airballs on two of their final possessions, a rough outing by their best player (Jared Sullinger) and a jumpshot heavy game to pull out a 103-100 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers this afternoon.

The Cavs, working through their own tumultuous situation as Andrew Bynum was suspended indefinitely before the game for “conduct detrimental to the team,” came out flat but battled back in the fourth quarter, riding a series of big shots by Kyrie Irving back into the game. But Boston used a pair of big defensive plays to pull out the win.

Before the fourth quarter, the Celtics dominated with a balanced scoring attack and solid ball movement. They didn’t look rusty after six days off, and even the late collapse seemed to have less to do with rust than Kyrie Irving’s offensive explosion.

We’ll have grades up this evening, but until then, enjoy the win, even if the ending caused an unwanted spike in our collective blood pressure.

    I thought Mike Brown got the bad end of the stick with his last two firings. But wow. He's lost the locker room to the point where their young star Waiters is on the trade block for calling out and fighting their other stars. Then Bynum is said to 'have played his last game with the Cavs'. Then Jeff Green gets the ball after the Bass block. They literally let 10 seconds run off the clock before they know to foul, with 1.4 seconds left. Then they don't get a shot off in time.

    I won't blame him for all of that. But it's his job not to allow fails like that. I'm thinking he is outside the Top 25 for best coaches currently…
