Cavs Drop to Second Place in Eastern Conference


The Cleveland Cavaliers’ blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night dropped them into second place in the Eastern Conference, behind the Boston Celtics.

It is the first time since the 2007-08 season that the Celtics are in sole possession of first place in the East this late into the season. It’s also the first time since Nov. 17 that the reigning champions haven’t sat atop the conference.
