Cavs continue to reach their goals

The Cavaliers have done a pretty good job of reaching their goals this season, so far at least.  Obviously, the biggest goal is still there to be obtained, winning a NB Title, but a couple of smaller, yet important, goals are right theri for the taking.

The Cavs can go a long way towards both of them this afternoon when the Celtics come to town.  Whether they admit it or not, the Cavaliers want to match Boston's record for home wins in a season(40-1).  While the record is nice, it certainly isn't the only motivation to put forth a solid effort against the defending Champs.  Now would not be the time for the Cavs to let Boston feel they can come into Cleveland and win a game, especially when the home team has won 15-straight in the series. 

Boston is without Kevin Garnett and Leon Powe and beat the Cavs handily in Boston when Garnett missed out.  The Cavs need to make sure the Celtics don't gain any confidence today that  they can use later on.

The Cavaliers are also on the cusp on clinching home court throughout the NBA Playoffs, Finals included.  The Lakers are two games back in the loss column meaning if Cleveland can win 2 of their final 3 games they clinch the League's best record.

Sure, both of those are nice things to accomplish.  The main goal, and frankly the only one that should matter, is still there to be had.  It has been a magical season for the Cavaliers to this point, however, and adding two more accomplishments to the laundry-list of accolades this year would be, well, something more to remember in a season full of memories.
