Tyronn Lue's shortcomings key in Game 1

Looking for a draft-day miracle and other trending NBA stories

But for me, there's never no level of concern no matter how bad I played tonight with seven turnovers, how inefficient I was shooting the ball.

Just because the Celtics greatly outperformed the Cavs Sunday afternoon certainly does not mean that they will do the same Tuesday night. However, there was rarely an emphasis on getting James shots closer to the rim, where he's at his best. "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. I think even early on with the shots that we had, we had some wide-open looks that just didn't go.

The players didn't bring much to the table, but the picks were enormously valuable in giving the Celtics immediate contributors and a foundation for the future.

"We come out with these Game 1's and we have these feel out games and they don't usually go our way". "I'll be able to tell my kids this one day", Morris told reporters including Washburn after the game.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers know they have to be better in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night at TD Garden. It is surprising to see the Cavaliers outclassed when they have LeBron James - one of the greatest players to have ever graced the courts. Players like Shane Larkin, Semi Olejeye, and Marcus Smart make it possible for Coach Stevens to sub out the starters and let them rest for long periods of times. He was disappointing in the earlier rounds because they lost his offense, but the Celtics can not be sacrificing that while trying to account for James. James averaged 34 points, 9.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists in the first two rounds of the playoffs but the superstar playmaker, seeking an eighth consecutive NBA Finals berth, was shut down by an aggressive, hustling Celtics squad. In Game 2, James was all but unstoppable as he replied with a 46-point, 12-rebound performance.

'It's not a successful season for Manchester United' - Gary Neville's brutal assessment
But I'm not getting carried away". "But if you want to be negative, you can always be negative". He said: 'You've got to go step by step.

Coach Tyronn Lue hinted strongly Monday that Thompson could be back in the starting lineup for Game 2, noting his history of success defending Celtics All-Star Al Horford.

Boston also outscored Cleveland 60-38 in the paint. It was just one game.

Though they have only made it through game one of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics have shown that they can beat the best player in the world and his team easily.

Equally impressed was Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green, who has faced off against James three times in the last three years in the NBA Finals.

Lebron James is the Wilt Chamberlain of today's National Basketball Association, while Morris and the Celtics represent Russell and the Celtics of old. He has no weakness on either end of the floor, and his defense was the primary reason why Love shot a subpar 5-of-14 from the field in Game 1.
