LeBron-less Cavs defeat Celtics

The Cavaliers got their third straight win as they beat the Boston Celtics 93-88 Monday night. In a game where both teams played their reserves for most of the game, Larry Hughes led the Cavs with 21 points and 5 steals. LeBron James and Paul Pierce both sat out of the game due to their respective injuries. LeBron sitting was just precautionary and he will be ready to go by playoff time.

It seems Hughes is starting to catch his stride and it canít come at a better time with the playoffs less than a week away. Hughes at full strength can only mean good things for the Cavs.
