Ainge, Irving don’t offer much on retooled Cavaliers

Danny Ainge of the Celtics says winning the NBA title is the goal, not winning the East.

Though they will welcome the Cleveland Cavaliers to TD Garden for the second time this season Sunday afternoon for the third and final regular-season matchup, the Boston Celtics don’t have much to say about their retooled opponents for tomorrow.

Boston General Manager Danny Ainge said the Celtics (40-17) are not concerned about what the Cavaliers (32-22) are doing at all.

Former Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving didn’t have much to say, either, about the busy day his old team had Thursday, when it brought in four players and shipped six out, but admitted it will be a different-looking Cavaliers squad he and his teammates will face Sunday.

The Cavaliers and Celtics, who met in the Eastern Conference Finals last season with Cleveland winning in five games, have split their regular-season matchups this season, each winning on their home floor.
