Cavs' JR Smith Thinks Celtics Might Throw 'Cheap Shots' In Game 2

Cavs' JR Smith Thinks Celtics Might Throw 'Cheap Shots' In Game 2

The players and coach said there was nothing malicious to Thomas' apparent grabbing of Kevin Love's ankle in the third quarter while Thomas was on the ground, nor did they seem too upset over Thomas' hard foul of LeBron James while he was in midair in the fourth quarter. The Cavs are now 9-0 in this year's postseason. "A completely dominating performance by the Cavs".

It was the second straight time the Cavaliers visited Boston and faced little resistance.

LeBron James offered a rather ominous comment after his Cleveland Cavaliers won the opener of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night. After a 38-point, nine-rebound and seven-assist performance in Game 1, James now has posted 68 games with at least 30 points, five rebounds and five assists in his playoff career (most in National Basketball Association postseason history).

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

ESPN's Tom Haberstroh noted at the time on Bill Simmons' "B.S. Report" that James simply didn't have the tools to go one-on-one effectively in the playoffs.

"Energy and our defensive intensity", James said. Losing 117-104, the game was basically over at halftime as Boston trailed by double-digits for the entirety of the final three quarters. This one, folks, was a shellacking from the get-go.

This play typified just how unstoppable the Cavaliers looked in this game, and it wasn't necessarily due to impeccable scheming like other film breakdowns in the past. Love started the game with a steal on the first possession, and even though he went only 1-for-5 from the field in the first quarter, he had a block in the opening period as Cleveland jumped out to a 30-19 lead. Coach Tyronn Lue said his team would be ready, but we wanted proof, as though everyone had amnesia and forgot how the Cavs closed out the 2016 Finals.

That group effort has allowed guard Kyrie Irving and forward Kevin Love to take their share of the load off James and play swarming support defense against top rival scorers, forcing shots from players unaccustomed to carrying the task of point production.

It was patched by Microsoft at the time , but older versions of Windows or those without Windows Update were left open to attacks. Meanwhile, Microsoft also recently began charging customers more for extra security in the top-of-the-line version of Windows 10.

Thomas hit a 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds left in the first half, his team's second trey in 16 first-half attempts.

The Celtics' defense was so terrified of James driving to the hoop - as he did in the first quarter when he scored 15 points and was 7-for-7 on shots taken in the paint - that in adjusting to thwart James, they lost track of Love.

Cavs toyed with Celtics from the start, building a 26-point lead in the first half and expanding it to 28 in the third quarter before Celtics cut it down to 17 at the end of the quarter. It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play.

The Celtics were led by Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder, who each scored 21 points. Isaiah Thomas was held to 17 points.

Game 2 of the Cavs vs. Celtics Game 1 will air on TNT, which means it will be available to live stream online on TNT Overtime as well as the broadcasting network's flagship streaming app - Watch NBA on TNT.

Front Court Domination: The Cavs front court starters out scored the Celtics 90-32, including 47-12 in the first half.

If the Celtics do not start hitting at least their open shots, the Cavaliers will continue to walk all over them. It, at times, looked like something out of a Looney Tunes cartoon, with the C's playing the role of Wile E. Coyote and LeBron James as the Road Runner.
