Cavs go down 0-2 in Boston despite LeBron triple-double

NBA playoffs: Celtics thump Cavaliers again Boston Celtics dominate Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James up against a superior team & 10 things we learned
Lucia Summers | 16 May, 2018, 14:29

The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to tip off against the Boston Celtics for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday, May 15, at 8:30 p.m.

Boston led 84-77 after three quarters and took command late in the fourth with the Cavs getting little offense other than from James.

James bounced back from his sub-par game-one performance in a big way.

Luckily for the Cavs, LeBron was able to come back out and finish the second half.

In a surprising press conference, LeBron James said that he will "be fine" and then added that he is "not gonna lose sleep over it". He also hit three of his eight threes en route to 23 points. His 9 consecutive points again kept the Celtics in the game when it looked like the Cavaliers were separating themselves. He cleared the concussion protocol and returned with just a neck strain, but he wasn't quite right. Not only did he show no fear, he took it to the Cavaliers and kept the Celtics in the game early when it looked like Mr. James was ready to single handedly run the C's off the court.

Unfortunately for the Cavs, games aren't won in the first quarter.

"I saw him out the corner of my eye", Rozier said.

It was during that November 2007 ceremony that the franchise named its court the "Red Auerbach Parquet Floor" in honor of the iconic coach, who guided the Celtics to nine National Basketball Association championships in 10 years: 1957 and from 1959-1966.

Love said he thought the Cavs were a "little soft" in the first half in Game 1. "You've got to be ready for that next game".

Jeff Green committed five turnovers in his 28 minutes on the floor for Cleveland, finishing at minus-17 for the game. Lue mulled whether to go to Thompson until Game 7, finally inserting him in the starting lineup. It will be a different environment out in Cleveland; we will have to wait and see if the Cavs fans can match Beantown's energy and passion.

Let's go ahead and get this one out of the way: Tristan Thompson is an incredibly limited player.

Maybe Lue still thinks so, but who knows? I think they're playing tougher than we are. That happens with the feisty Morris allowed to be given that off-the-jump rhythm he grooved his way into on Sunday, not throw in off the bench to stop LeBron at the first sign of danger in what could very well be another "legendary" response game from James.

Horford said that, if anything, Smith's infraction only sharpened the Celtics' focus.
