James, Love power Cavs to Game 1 blowout of the Celtics

19 Mai, 2017, 16:20 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Cleveland, meanwhile, did not struggle to put the ball through the basket, as it scored 30 points during the first quarter on 59.1 percent shooting.

BOSTON (AP) - LeBron James did pretty much whatever he wanted to against the Celtics in the Cavaliers' dominating win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

It was a wire to wire victory for the Cavs, who maintained a 20-point lead for much of the game, behind LeBron's 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.

With home-court advantage gone, the Celtics face a virtual must-win Game 2 on Friday night.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said his optimism remains high, and that he was "really encouraged" by his team's performance over the final 18 minutes of the game.

The Cavs toyed with the Celtics from the start, building a 26-point lead in the first half and expanding it to 28 in the third quarter before the Celtics cut it down to 17 at the end of the quarter.

"I don't even think we played that great tonight", James said.

"After 10 days off, I didn't feel that great but I know I'll feel a lot better going into Game 2", James said during the post-game interview.

Kevin Love added a playoff career-high 32 points and had 12 rebounds to help the Cavaliers improve to 9-0 in the first three rounds of the playoffs.

This isn't the first time LeBron has played it causal this postseason.

Coming off a game seven victory over Washington on Monday night, Boston missed 11 of its first 14 shots. "That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table".

Antetokounmpo averaged career highs in almost all statistical categories including points (22.9), rebounds (8.8), assists (5.4), blocks (1.9) and steals (1.6) per game.

Point guard Kyrie Irving finished with just 11 points and six assists, while opposing point guard Isaiah Thomas finished with 17 points and 10 assists, but it was Irving who got the last laugh. They were more physical.

Once the game started, there was little to get excited about for Boston. "We can't let that happen again".

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.

Still, James said the Cavs are mentally preparing for the Celtics' best shot in Game 2.

Crowder was the primary defender on him and said that must be the top priority as they look to adjust for Game 2. "We're just kind of riding it".
