Leading scorer Donovan Mitchell (calf injury) missed the Cavaliers’ second straight game due to injury. Caris LeVert (knee) started the Game 4 defeat in Mitchell’s substitute. The Cavaliers held strong, taking the lead in the first half and maintaining a lead until Boston started to pull away in the middle of the fourth quarter.

The Celtics made 19 3-pointers and had a 52.5% shooting percentage from the field. With six different players scoring in double figures, the Celtics experienced a quiet game from Jaylen Brown (11 points).
