The Boston Celtics have had a tough time on the road in the playoffs, as have other big teams out in the Western Conference including the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Boston Celtics are going to be looking ot take a 3-2 lead in the series over the Cavaliers, and extend their undefeated streak at home in the playoffs.

The Celtics almost took one in Cleveland on Monday night before falling apart in the 4th quarter offensively.

They will be looking for big performances from point guards Rajon Rondo and Sam Cassel as they need them to distribute the ball rather than shooting to get the offense flowing.

The Cavaliers are being led by Lebron James, with a supporting cast of Delonte West, Wally Sczerbiak, and others who have played well. The defense won the game for Cleveland in game 4, and they will need that same intensity if they hope to steal one tonight.

It should be a big night in Boston when the Celtics and Cavaliers square off in game 5 at 8 p.m. on TNT.
