CLEVELAND--The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to fight hard during the 2nd half of the season, fighting hard tonight led by Collin Sexton's 24 points. But it was not enough as the Cavs fall to the Celtics 116-106. With this loss, the Celtics sweep the season series against Cleveland.

The Celtics led for the majority of the game as Jason Tatum (21 pts), Marcus Smart (21) and Al Horford (19) led Boston. They played without former Cavalier Kyrie Irving who was out with rest. Boston is 11-2 without Irving this season. With this win including a 24-14 run to end the game, the Celtics end a four game losing streak.

While Sexton led the way with scoring along with Cedi Osman (15) and Jordan Clarkson (18) off the bench, Kevin Love struggled as he was only 3 of 13 from the field and 0 for 5 from downtown. Despite Love's struggles, the Cavs still were in the game against Boston.

Cavs will return to action in San Antonio this Friday against the Spurs. With seven games left, Cavs don't play again at home until Sunday April 7th against the Spurs (Game #81). Celtics will host the Indiana Pacers in a playoff preview this Friday.
