Cavs end 11-game slide, beat play-in bound Celtics 102-94

CLEVELAND (AP) The Celtics can stop chasing, get some rest and hopefully heal up. They're play-in bound.

Kevin Love scored a season-high 30 points, Collin Sexton added 28 and the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 102-94 win in their home finale, locking Boston into one of the four play-in spots in the Eastern Conference.

It has been a rough few days for the Celtics. They lost All-Star Jaylen Brown for the rest of the year with a wrist injury, dropped two straight games to Miami and then faced Cleveland without starters Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart due to injuries.
