Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives to the basket against Boston Celtics center Al Horford (42) in the first quarter at TD Garden.

Celtics rallied some and actually cut the deficit to 11 with the benches cleared in the final minutes.

James, who is seeking to reach his seventh straight National Basketball Association finals, scored 15 in the fourth quarter en route to his seventh straight 30-point game.

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. Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley were Boston's co-leading scorers, finishing with 21 apiece.

"But his mentality needs to stay the same as Minnesota, and I think as he continues to get even more comfortable and comfortable - tonight was one of those instances where every time he got the ball, it was a small guarding him or somebody was in the post". He's not able to stop James, but he can take away a secondary player, and that's about as effective a game plan that one can have. This one, folks, was a shellacking from the get-go.

Stat D: LeBron James is 74-12 (.860) in career Eastern Conference playoff home games.

Cleveland would go on a 14-2 run capped off by a LeBron James layup with 4:16 to play in the quarter. Isaiah Thomas had 17 points. Those are just two of the many power forwards that could come to the Celtics by trading the first overall pick.

(Left to Right) General Manager Danny Ainge Head Coach Brad Stevens and Owner Wyc Grousbeck have plenty of options to make the Celtics even better.

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.

"We just gotta keep our composure", Lue said. Isaiah Thomas, who averaged 27 points in the series against Washington, finished with 17 on 7-for-19 shooting. James led Cleveland with 38 points in the game. The Celtics shooting picked up and they recorded five three-pointers on nine attempts. That ploy backfired quickly once James realized what the Celtics were doing and shifted into attack mode. Golden State is off to a 10-0 start in the Western Conference, the Warriors two games from their third consecutive NBA Finals and a possible third consecutive meeting with the Cavaliers there. "But the work that we put in this week, we just tried to be as up to speed as possible when the game did come".

"He's playing at a high level right now, and that's the reason we're riding him so much". For the Cavaliers, the core is intact, yet still they added firepower in Kyle Korver and Deron Williams.

Love, to his credit, accepted his role, knowing he was a key contributor to the Cavs' 25-5 mark over their past 30 playoff games no matter what the stats said. The hit us first. "When you try to take him out of the series and try to make it tough on him, you're going to give up some shots..." Olynyk scored two points in the final minute and had three rebounds Wednesday. The Cavaliers had a higher field goal percentage, a higher 3-Point percentage, a higher Free Throw percentage, more Free Throws attempted, collected more rebounds and had more steals, blocks and points off turnovers than the Celtics. The Celtics need to make sure they are always at the top of their game in order to be ready for those rare occasions when the Cavaliers can be caught off guard.
