After a disappointing loss to the Hawks where they blew a 26-point lead, maybe taking a night off isn’t such a bad idea. It looks like the Cavs aren’t trying to clinch that number one seed in the Eastern Conference and it is now up to the Celtics to take advantage of the situation. The Cavs are planning to start Deron Williams, Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye on Monday. Tristan Thompson (thumb) is also listed as out. Looks like they’ll have their hands full with a Heat team still chasing for a playoff spot.
