Victim for years, Horford centerpiece of game plan to beat Cavs
16 May, 2018, 08:17
But I've been down 0-1, I've been down 0-2. You could say we're not affected by it, and then come out and get beat by 20 points tomorrow.
"I'll just be myself, be active early", Thompson said.
Instead, Morris insulted the entire Cavaliers team and said that "them dudes can't guard".
"We've got to help 'Bron", he said.
'He should've gotten more than [an applause]', Green told ESPN. "We have another opportunity to be better as a ball club coming in Tuesday night, and we'll see what happens". I was supposed to switch on one of them, I didn't.
The Celtics threw multiple looks at him, but Morris spent the majority of the time on him. If you don't have discipline, you make silly mistakes on the regular, allowing room for turnovers and makes the players lazy as a result of the momentum change. The Boston Celtics are -1.0 over the Cavaliers in game 2.
Kevin Love has the ability to do much better than his 17 point, 8 rebound showing in Game 1, as he demonstrated in the last 3 games of the Semifinals against the Raptors. In the following six Game 2s, he upped his shooting percentage to 41.2 percent.
He's already considered by many to be the G.O.A.T, so few would be surprised to find out that Lebron James may have a photographic memory. "We had a bad game". "That's the great challenge of having to play against a team like this and a player like him". In the East, the Celtics contained LeBron James and spread the offense around - is that a sign of things to come, or is it a fluke?
Stevens' point, that sometimes it's beneficial to go into a series against a veteran group like the Cavaliers without the emotional luggage and memory of an older team, gains clarity with each game.
While speaking with reporters Monday, Lue gave a head-scratching explanation for not starting Thompson. Thompson has given the Celtics fits in the past, especially Al Horford, and provides some protection for Kevin Love, whom Horford took to school on Sunday.
Thompson in the starting lineup may have Brad Stevens reconsider starting Morris, instead opting to have Aron Baynes back in the starting five. Another player that had a huge game was Marcus Morris.
Boston went aggressive from the opening tip, building a 36-18 bubble in the 1st quarter before erecting a 61-35 halftime lead.
Game 2 is tonight, presumably with a more determined Cavs team on the floor.
Who Is Feeling It From Downtown?
James is not going to be in the 15-point range again. "We just need to be better at making them feel us".
The Cavaliers were not as good from long-range. They dominated each of the first two quarters to lead 61-35 at the main break, and despite a third quarter fightback from the Cavs, the Celtics were able to run out comfortable 108-83 winners.
But there has been only one time when James' team has lost a Game 1 by a wider margin than Sunday's 25 points: the 2006 second round at Detroit, when the Cavs were dismantled 113-86. Three of those open looks were taken by LeBron.
However that has not been the case, and the Celtics are now three wins away from being in the National Basketball Association finals.
