Celtics open East finals by ripping Cavaliers

That said, whenever Clarkson is on the floor against players like Terry Rozier and the aforementioned Brown and Tatum, keeping a heady point like George Hill on the court would be wise, even if LeBron James is on the court.

Heading into the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals, James has won 23 straight playoff series against Eastern Conference teams. I can see that teams overlook us because of our age, and that works to our advantage when they take us lightly. "Other than that, James most recently faced an 0-2 deficit in the second round against the Celtics in 2008, when James" Cavaliers lost Game 2, 89-73, and ultimately lost the series in seven games. "It's not just me".

I guess we can expect that happening again today. "He's always done it". "Obviously when I check in the game I'll try to break that toughness and that energy". If you have to overplay your top guys, they begin to get exhausted, then you see recklessness come into play: turnovers happen more often, and the team suffers greatly.

With that being said, the C's can't let the anticipation of a bounce-back game from James and the Cavs allow them to lose sight of their own game plan.

At the postgame news conference, a reporter noted the Cavs - having fallen behind by as much as 28 points in the first half - had closed the gap to 14 entering the fourth quarter, only to give up a 7-0 run to start the period that all but iced the contest.

Love top-scored for the Cavaliers with 17 points.

Auerbach's spirit was definitely with the Celtics that 2007-2008 season, as they won the National Basketball Association championship that year, spearheaded by their Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

Then James detailed how Celtics player Jayson Tatum threw the ball to Morris, who made a three-pointer.

Playing James below the foul-line is sure to get him easier attempts and invite the type of defensive reactions (help, double-teams) that result in open results for his teammates.

A year after dropping the first two games at home against Cleveland in a five-game East final, the Celtics pounced on James, and the favoured Cavaliers were never really in it. LeBron had a subpar game, tallying only 15 points, although he also had 9 assists and 7 rebounds. According to NBA.com's stats page, the Cavs were just 3-for-16 on their "wide-open" threes, defined as shots taken with no defender within six feet.

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue indicated he was going to make some big lineup changes in Tuesday's Game 2, but Boston head coach Brad Stevens remains concerned with LeBron James. However, there was rarely an emphasis on getting James shots closer to the rim, where he's at his best. Since returning to Cleveland, he's 3-2.

Thompson has averaged 5.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game this postseason.
