The Boston Celtics took the Cleveland Cavaliers for seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals, with star point guard Kyrie Irving and forward Gordon Hayward injured and not being able to play.
Even though Irving and Hayward are on track to begin next season with the core that pushed LeBron James & Co. to a winner-take-all-game, the Celtics are doing anything but standing pat, according to a report by Jared Weiss, Celtics writer for The Athletic.
