Cavaliers get off to quick start in rout of Celtics

  • Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James takes the floor for Game 1 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics Wednesday

A loss on Friday would also leave the Celtics with the formidable proposition of having to win four out of five games to take the Eastern Conference Finals - a almost impossible duty against the Cavaliers that since LeBron James returned to Cleveland in 2014-15 season has a 33-4 postseason record against the Eastern Conference teams.

With the Cavs leading Boston 1-0 in the eastern conference finals and the Warriors holding a 2-0 edge over the San Antonio Spurs in the west, backcourt partners Dyami Starks and Adam Doyle backed last season's finalists to continue on their merry way. It is just one game and we have to come out in Game 2 with a higher expectancy of what they are going to throw at us.

"I was trying to use angles, see how my defender was playing me", James said. "And that's the reason why we're riding him so much".

-James marked his 7th straight game with at least 30 points.

Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder led the Celtics with 21 points each. "Whether you are down 3-0 or whatever the case maybe, when we have them down we have to keep you there until the clock says:00". Isaiah Thomas was held to just 17 points, but he had 10 assists.

The Celtics' defense was so terrified of James driving to the hoop - as he did in the first quarter when he scored 15 points and was 7-for-7 on shots taken in the paint - that in adjusting to thwart James, they lost track of Love.

Despite not playing "that great", the Cavaliers took over home-court advantage in the series and look to get a two games to none lead Friday night at TD Garden. The hit us first. We need everyone, every game. "They're not the Monstars on "Space Jam"," the C's guard said, referencing the team of intergalactic villains in the 1996 Michael Jordan movie.

"They didn't do anything (unexpected)", Thomas said. "We can't let that happen again".

Some third-quarter unpleasantness erupted between Thompson and Boston's Marcus Smart, whose fiery play kept his team somewhat alive - his flying slam on a rebound with 2.8 seconds left in the third igniting the crowd.

A loss Friday would also leave Boston with the daunting proposition of having to win four out of five games to take the series - a almost impossible task against a team that since James returned to Cleveland in 2014-15 has a 33-4 playoff record against Eastern Conference opponents. "Seriously?" he said. "We had like two weeks to get ready and now at the last second it turns out Kelly Olynyk has the ability to make shots and get rebounds and stuff?" The Celtics finished 12 of 38 (31.6 percent) from long distance, while the Cavs were 11 of 31 (35.5 percent). "(Game 2) is going to be very important because they're going to try to set the tone early.

He said the help must come often and faster. "Obviously he got comfortable with what we were doing on the defensive end, and he had his way".
