News: Crowder said after Saturday's practice that he's starting Sunday versus the Cavaliers, MassLive.com reports.
Impact: Crowder has been contained to bench duty during the first three games against Cleveland, but with the Celtics facing elimination from the postseason, he'll likely be entrusted with containing LeBron James from the get-go. Entering Sunday's game, Crowder is averaging 12 points (on 52 percent shooting), 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 block, and 1.0 three-pointer in 28 minutes for the series.
News: Sullinger didn't practice Saturday due to a bruised tailbone, but his availability for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers is merely probable, MetroWest Daily News reports.
Impact: Sullinger's absence from drills appears to be a precautionary measure, as he's expected to take the court with the Celtics facing elimination. In the first three contests of the first-round series, he has earned modest run, averaging 9.3 points (on 57 percent shooting), 5.7 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, and 0.7 three-pointers in 18 minutes.
