Kyrie Irving went under the radar 11 points and six assists, but that didn't matter as the Cavaliers made 39 of 81 field goals and 11 of 31 triples.

Harden, James on All-NBA first team • Cleveland's LeBron James has been named to the All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, and Houston's James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season. "But I should be much better (Friday)".

NOTES: Cleveland F LeBron James reportedly erased a white board of plays when told Boston F Kelly Olynyk had 26 points in Game 7 against Washington on Monday night. But the Celtics did manage to rebound and earn the top seed in the East. Isaiah Thomas averaged 29.5 points for the Celtics vs. the Cavaliers.

Still, James said the Cavs were mentally preparing for the Celtics' best shot in Game 2. "That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table".

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 foes. He also had a team-high four turnovers.

"There's nothing to figure out", Thomas said. I felt like that's a reason they didn't play us in the second round.

Conversely, James has shown an ability to completely stifle Thomas on the defensive end.

LeBron James, looking to advance to his seventh straight NBA Finals, led the Cavs with 38 points (15 in the fourth quarter), his seventh consecutive 30-point game.

While the four-time league MVP could have taken the Celtics all by himself, the King got of plenty of help, making matters worse for woeful Celtics.
