Celtics still winless on the road

King Ing May 13, 2008 1

Cavaliers 88 Celtics 77 – Boston continues to struggle on the road as they dropped to 0-5 this playoff season. For a team that went 31-10 away from home during the regular season they have wilted under the added stress of the playoffs. Again it was the role players for Cleveland that came up big. With Lebron facing constant double teams and continuing to struggle shooting the ball, it was Daniel Gibson (14 pts) and Anderson Varejo (12 pts) that picked up the slack. King James put the game away with a thunderous dunk on defensive player of the year Kevin Garnett. KG struggled mightily in the second half as he could only muster two points after scoring 13 in the first. All the momentum is with the Cavaliers as they head back to Boston. It is eerily similar to what happened last year in the series with Detroit. Can the Cavs steal a game or will Boston rise to the occasion again while at home? The pivotal game 5 is tomorrow night at 8pm.
