Kyrie Irving had another amazing game against the Detroit Pistons as LeBron James struggled a little in Game 4. Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have finished their sweep of the 2016 NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Semifinals, they get a chance to rest while the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks battle for a chance to face King James and company en route to the NBA Finals.

With the best-of-seven series currently tied 2-2 between the Celtics and Hawks, Boston travels to Atlanta for Game 5 on Tuesday. Having tied things up after starting the series down 0-2, the Celtics must continue to deal with injuries as they try to make a deep playoff run in 2016.

Injuries— Kelly Olynyk and Avery Bradley

Being cleared prior to Game 4, 7-footer Kelly Olynyk returned to action for the Boston Celtics on Sunday night, albeit for less than four minutes. Still being bothered by a shoulder injury that caused him to miss Games 2 and 3 against the Hawks, Olynyk is slowly being worked back into Boston's line-up. Fans can expect the center to get more playing time in Game 5.

Avery Bradley, however, will continue to sit for the Celtics during the remainder of the Semifinals against the Hawks. Having injured his right hamstring against the Hawks in the series opener, Boston Celtics president Danny Ainge said that Avery won't return to action against Atlanta.

Kyrie Irving vs. The Pistons

In a game that included another clutch 3-pointer for point guard Kyrie Irving, Cleveland showed that they can remain competitive even when head-Cavalier LeBron James isn't firing on all cylinders. While LeBron still had 22 points, 11 rebounds and a team-high 6 assists, it was Irving that stole the show on Sunday night.

Netting 31 points in just over 40 minutes of play, Kyrie easily earned MVP of the game. Having missed almost the entire NBA Finals last year, Irving appears to be making up for it in 2016 for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
