The Cavs have a major uphill battle in front of them heading into the 4th Q if they are to break the Celtics' perfect 9-0 home record this postseason. The Celtics are up 76-60 and while Cleveland has held Boston to just 38.1 percent from the floor, the Cavaliers aren't doing much better at 40.4 percent. The difference? Boston is shooting 40.7 percent from 3 while Cleveland is shooting 25 percent from the outside and the Cavs also have 11 turnovers while the Celtics have just eight.
