Cavs-Celtics: Not a playoff preview

The matchup Friday between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers has been billed as a preview of the Eastern Conference finals. After locking horns in a seven game series that was one of the most captivating of the 2008 NBA playoffs, the anticipation for Friday's game is understandable. However, due to injury and recent player acquisitions, this game will not be a true representation of what fans are hoping for come May.
