James scored 21 points in the first quarter, while Boston recorded only 23 as a team in the quarter.
This is somewhat understandable given that the Raptors had now lost 10-straight games to the Cavaliers in the playoffs, and the consolation after those series typically was that this was LeBron James, and he simply does not lose in the Eastern Conference, which he's dominated for more than a decade.
"I have zero level of concern at this stage", James said. James missed 11 of 16 shot attempts and turned the ball over seven times.
James' 979 postseason points against Boston were the most by any player against any opponent in the last 50 years. Ultimately though, it won't be enough against the much better all-around team in Boston. That was the closestthe Cavs could get as Tatum, Morris and Rozier offensively carried the Celtics juggernaut in the final quarter in which the lead went to as high as 29 with 5:19 remaining. Even if it is just for brief stretches, the Celtics know how they need to disrupt James to take control of the game. Morris probably won't light it up like that again but the Cavs don't have any defensive stoppers outside of James and no rim protection, so the Celtics should feast each night.
Love has had a very up-and-down postseason. However, he had his best shooting night of the playoffs in game one, and we will see if this efficient shooting will carry on for the rest of the series.
According to a report from Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, James is just six points shy of becoming the only player in National Basketball Association history to record 1,000 points against a single team in the playoffs.
The Cavs were outscored 36-18 in the first quarter and trailed by as many as 29 points.
LeBron rarely has bad games back-to-back though, particularly in the playoffs, and he will come out breathing fire in Game 2. This is the first 2-0 hole for a LeBron James-led team since his Cavaliers trailed the Celtics 2-0 in the second round back in 2008. "He's the guy we really, really lean on".
Whereas Brown has the size to defend James, Smart has the strength to keep the four-time MVP in front of him when James tries to overpower him.
Horford, whose performances are nearly dissected on a nightly basis because of his high-priced contract, is enjoying the best postseason of his career, averaging 17.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, while shooting 59.3 percent from the floor.
Kevin Love led Cleveland with 17 points and 8 rebounds.
Al Horford said Tuesday morning ahead of shootaround that the key heading into Game 2 is, "Just understanding that this is another challenge".
He's already considered by many to be the G.O.A.T, so few would be surprised to find out that Lebron James may have a photographic memory.
After being reintroduced to the world as a "LeBron Stopper", it would've been easy for Marcus Morris to take credit for how much LeBron James struggled in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
