Cavaliers-Celtics Preview

(AP) -- Although the Boston Celtics and their fans may not yet be resigned to the team's fate, it's basically a matter of when as opposed to if for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the weight of NBA playoff history pushing down on them, the Celtics will try to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Cavaliers on Sunday at TD Garden.

Boston has shown plenty of grit in this first-round series but has only an 0-3 hole to show for it, and no team has ever come back from such a deficit to win a series. Sending it back to Cleveland for Game 5 is all the Celtics can focus on.
