Celtics look for answers against Cavaliers

Ahead of their final postseason push, the Boston Celtics visit the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday looking to snap a three-game losing streak.

The Celtics (35-34), playing the second leg of a back-to-back, are coming off a 129-121 loss at home Tuesday to Miami. The defeat marked Boston's second straight against the Heat, who extended their lead for sixth place in the Eastern Conference over the Celtics to three games. Each team has three games left to close the regular season.

The No. 6 spot is significant as it's the last guaranteed berth in the playoffs, while No. 7 must compete in the play-in tournament to advance. And the Celtics are all but locked into that No. 7 spot but could fall to No. 8.
