Cleveland Cavaliers 130-86 Boston Celtics

20 Mai 2017

I gotta tie my shoes just like he ties his shoes. "I mean, what else do you do?"

"Not 44 points' worth", said Thomas, per ESPN's Chris Forsberg. They happened to play better than us in Game 1.

"It was a good 48-minute game for us on both ends of the ball". "Isaiah brings a lot to this team, not just with his leadership but his play".

James statistics are breathtaking - did we mention he was a plus-46 for the game, the best plus/minus of his career, including, presumably his prep years at St. Vincent-St. On the other hand, the Cavs were able to produce their best defensive performance of these playoffs, holding the Celtics to their woeful shooting percentage by forcing numerous inopportune shots and late in the shot clock desperation attempts, which rarely wound up as points on the scoreboard.

The sting of this loss, and this series for that matter, should motivate the returning Celtics next season. Even with James and the rest of the starters sitting out the fourth quarter, the 130-point total was the most in the franchise's playoff history. Cleveland's lead eventually climbed to 50.

'We got our (butt) kicked.

Rookie Jaylen Brown led the Celtics with 19 points and Avery Bradley had 13. "We didn't come out with enough energy to start the game off, two games in a row". "Defending champs. They swept us off the floor".

With the Boston Celtics having earned home-court advantage in the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals, fans may have had some hope. The Celtics haven't found a way, and they're running out of time. "They play their traditional way". Credit to those guys. We've seen what we did wrong before. I'm excited about Game 3.

Which brings me back to Fultz, who is far and away the most explosive scorer coming into the National Basketball Association next season and has been atop most draft boards for most of this season. "But I don't want to put that on any one guy. I thought it was a tough decision, but just part of how things go". "We've got to stay together and ride the course".

"We've been in this situation before. We opened -5.5, and we're at 6", Rood said of action at MGM books, including his home post at The Mirage on the Vegas Strip. It wasn't to this type of caliber team, though.

You know, I'm starting to think the Cavaliers don't believe the Celtics deserved the top seed in the conference.
