Celtics waiting in wings
There's an outside chance LeBron James will play in Sunday's game in Boston. If not, things could get extremely ugly. The Celtics are still smarting about their overtime loss to the Cavs Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena.
Coach Mike Brown said James could have played on Friday. He said he would have if it was a playoff game. However, since it was only November, they did the right thing and forced him to miss his first game of the season.
His absense was evident not only offensively, but also on defense. Forward Drew Gooden played well for the Cavs on Friday, as he had 15 points, 14 rebounds and five steals.
