Cavs roll past Boston in Game 1

  • Cavs roll past Boston in Game 1

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers continued to do what they've done all postseason, proving that nothing is going to stop them from reaching the NBA Finals for a third straight year.

Isaiah Thomas had 17 points. While all of the players and coaches on the Celtics team at that point were different than the players and coaches from 2010, LeBron admitted that he still thought about what happened in 2010.

Series schedule, fan fest info, watch parties and more. It was the fifth time in the past six playoff games that he didn't crack 20 points as he finished with only 17 points on 7-of-19 shooting. LeBron got things going early and never stopped. If they can go 2-0 in Boston then the sweep and the rest it could give them will be a tempting motivator for what is now a veteran team.

Harden was not an All-NBA team pick last season, after averaging 29 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.1 assists, which prompted Rockets general manager Daryl Morey to tweet his reaction. The Cavaliers won 117-104.

As great as James was Wednesday night, it was nearly expected, and the same will be the case in Game 2 Friday night.

Despite a 10-day layoff since closing out the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, James, Love and Thompson combined to score 90 points, pull down 30 rebounds and steal five passes in the lopsided victory.

If the Celtics do not start hitting at least their open shots, the Cavaliers will continue to walk all over them. And if that wasn't enough, just to put the fear of God Almighty into the Celtics, in the post-match conference, LeBron quipped, "After ten days off, I didn't feel that great, but I know I'll feel a lot better going into Game 2". "So, definitely, that mentality from Minnesota is what we all love". "I think when you start looking at you have to be quick, you have to be versatile, the shooting helps, all that stuff, and he's obviously been a huge part of our team the last couple of years. The energy and the effort and the mindset was where it needed to be". Nobody is better than James at forcing defenses to make an impossible decision, and nobody is harder to deceive with defensive coverages.

"He's playing at a high level right now and that's the reason why we're riding him so much", Lue said.

"We'll have to adjust a little bit", Stevens admitted. He's a pretty physical guy.

"He's better than when I got into the league, a lot better", Stevens said.

Joining Harden and James on the first team were Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and New Orleans' Anthony Davis. Boston must find a way to slow down James while not getting eaten up by a supporting cast, which other than Kevin Love's big game, didn't produce at its usual high rate. But he has to see bodies behind me. Share in the comments or on Twitter and let me know. It was a question that dogged other Celtics who have been experiencing the devastation James can bring individually for years now. "My mind is always racing on how I can make it the best possession at that particular time".

If the Celtics like to cast themselves as a collection of mostly overlooked and underestimated - 5-9 Mr. Irrelevant-turned-star Isaiah Thomas, second-rounder Crowder, prep star but college bust now National Basketball Association starter Avery Bradley, and so on - Brown is on the opposite end of the spectrum. He seemed to take special pleasure when he was guarded by Kelly Olynyk, a nemesis from his previous playoff vanquishing of the Celtics in 2015, skipping before crushing him on easy finishes.
