Smith May Miss C’s Game

Joe Smith is uncertain for tomorrow night, according to the Globe:

The Cavaliers are expected to officially sign free agent forward Joe Smith today.

But the veteran forward, who was waived by Oklahoma City Monday, isn't expected to practice with the Cavaliers and it's uncertain if he will be in uniform for tomorrow night's showdown between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference at TD Banknorth Garden

This is actually significant because he could help them tomorrow.  With KG and Ben Wallace out, Smith could fill a bit of a void.  And with only 1 game separating the two teams, this game could be huge.  Neither team is going to lose much the rest of the way… so a 2 game lead right now could almost be called commanding.  And while I don't view home court advantage as crucial to this year's team, it would be nice.

    I think home court for the Celtics is important because the Cavs don’t play nearly as well on the road as they do at home. But the Cavs have a favorable schedule ahead and are likely to get first place in the East. I’m really happy the Lakers own both tie-breakers!!
