James unworried despite Game 1 rout

16 May 2018

Al Horford's domination of Love set the tone of Game 1. After the game a reporter asked LeBron a simple question, "What happened?" You don't win a series in one game.

Game 2 is Tuesday night in Boston. The Cavs, who seem to have scrubbed off a shaky start to the postseason, look to fend off Celts - and compete in their fourth straight NBA Finals. "He's always done it". I imagine it'll be a lot like Game 2 against Indiana.

It would really be nice if National Basketball Association players would walk the walk and let their actions speak louder that talk. It was just one game.

"We just have to make it hard for him", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of James. "I've been down before in the postseason".

Through the first quarter of Game 2 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, it is crystal clear that LeBron James had brought his A-game.

He pinpointed two triumphs in that run as the most significant of the 32 league wins City amassed. City's magnificent campaign has ended with a record 16 away wins and 106 Premier League goals.

"We played great in Game 1, and then they came out and just jumped on us [in Game 2]", Stevens recalled of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. "Whenever you go against him, we've had a history, especially in Atlanta with him and [Paul] Millsap, with Chicago Joakim [Noah] and Pau [Gasol], those are All-Star bigs that are very good players and for me a guy that wants to keep getting better and keep proving myself, you get up for those games".

Marcus Morris led the way for the Celtics on both offense and defense. LeBron James and Kevin Love have combined for 52 points so far, but Cleveland will need its role players to hit a few shots to regain the lead.

Thompson played 21 minutes off the bench, finishing with eight points and 11 rebounds in game one.

With James on that team, other Eastern Conference squads may find that the path to the Finals has been blocked again by the man they call King and his highly talented teammates. James was 5-of-16 shooting with seven turnovers in Game 1, though he did finish with nine assists. Miami won the series in five.

Through one quarter, the 4-time MVP has hardly disappointed. LeBron James is leading the way with 25 points, five assists and four rebounds. Equally notable, in the six Game 2s he's lost when facing an 0-1 deficit, he's averaged 23.8.

The Raptors let rookie forward OG Anunoby guard James for the bulk of their four-game series and, though Anunoby is strong at the point-of-attack and athletic himself, his inexperience led to a couple of lowlights.

Though he and Embiid are very different players, James can still teach the young center how to better handle the media. Since returning to Cleveland, he's 3-2.

James shot only 3-for-8 in the first half and the Cavaliers missed their first 14 3-point attempts of the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers may be making a change to their starting lineup. Such a strategic adjustment could result in more mismatches for James on pick-and-rolls and, since the Celtics switch everything, could also open offensive rebounding lanes for Thompson.
