'Zero concern' as James says Cavs will bounce back

  • At least Le Bron James was impressive after Game 1

Having Kevin Love guard Al Horford and Kyle Korver guard Jaylen Brown was a bad idea from the start and Celtics head coach Brad Stevens could be heard imploring his team to challenge the Cavaliers' lateral movement during the game. "You get better throughout the series".

"I have zero level of concern at this stage", the three-time NBA Champion explained to reporters after Game 1.

As more players went down to injury - including Irving, who came over from the Cavaliers last summer but was done for the season in March - the prophesies grew even gloomier.

Translation: one win does not a series make.

Boston sold 51% of shots from the game and gave the grandmaster's 27 assists.

The Celtics are 8-0 at home in this postseason. Numerous issues that plagued the Cavaliers in their opening round win over the Indiana Pacers cropped up as the young Celtics really challenged them.

Brad Stevens expects the Boston Celtics to face a different LeBron James in Game 2. "At the end of the day, all the talking is done on the court".

LeBron James has made Boston's TD Garden his personal playground during the playoffs in recent years.

Marcus Smart said "that was big for us". "Every team we've played in the playoffs has kind of counted us out, so when you're on a team with nothing to lose that can play carefree, that's a unsafe team".

From there, she texted her sister-in-law who was watching her kids: "OMG, there's tons of gunshots and people dead everywhere". It was the worst mass shooting in U.S history and until this week, the motivation behind Paddock's massacre remained unknown.


Thompson came off the bench for a game-high 11 rebounds, including four offensive and outscored his three starting guards with eight points.

Earlier this season, immediately following the NBA All-Star break, I made a well-informed declaration that LeBron James and the Cavs were the lock of the century as a 5.5-point favorite against the Washington Wizards.

What's much more eye-popping is the 44-23 record, giving him a 65.7-win percentage in games after a loss in the playoffs. "It's what makes us the best team that we can be".

"It's a team effort, man, it's not just me".

"Personally, I think I'm probably the best guy defending him in the league, outside of Kawhi [Leonard]", Morris said. We're absolutely OK with that. "And we're going to take those same looks going into Game 2 if the opportunity presents itself". Attempting to beat the best player in the playoffs/NBA in LeBron James was expected to be much more hard of a task.

"You definitely have to adjust. That's what part of the playoff series is about", James said.

Marcus Morris who had said before the series began that he was one of the best in the National Basketball Association at defending James, got credit for his performance. I agree with him in that sense, but I don't think we're naïve. The one who reminds everyone that not only is he the greatest player of this generation, he's one of the most overwhelming forces in the history of professional sports, a juggernaut on par with Jim Brown and Babe Ruth and vintage Tiger. Morris also added 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics.

"He's our rock", Stevens said of Horford, who has also averaged 8.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.4 blocks per game in the playoffs. "He's the guy we really, really lean on". Morris was inserted into the starting lineup and drew the defensive assignment on LeBron to begin the game.
