Best Memes of LeBron James & the Cavaliers Crushed by the Boston Celtics

Best Memes of LeBron James & the Cavaliers Crushed by the Boston Celtics”

Nonetheless, Morris' study of James how best to defend him sets the tone for the Celtics against the Cavaliers because James is the opposition's proverbial "head of the snake". A Morris dunk, Marcus Smart 3-pointer and Tatum layup stretched the Celtics' lead to 85-64 as a part of an 18-4 run that would put Boston ahead 96-68 and end Cleveland's hopes.

"I have zero level of concern at this stage", the forward said after an uncharacteristically off-key display that saw him finish with just 15 points while committing seven turnovers.

However, LeBron's figures against Morris make for interesting reading. If you have to overplay your top guys, they begin to get exhausted, then you see recklessness come into play: turnovers happen more often, and the team suffers greatly. Usually, when he plays like that in a playoff game, the next night out he goes off.His 46 points in Game 2 against the Pacers last month is only the latest example."History is history; I'm a guy who lives in the moment", James said.

"With Love at the 5, you have everybody out there that can shoot the ball".

For a repeat of Game 2 against IN, the Cavs are going to need more than what they got from James' supporting cast IN that game: 5-of-16 shooting from Love, five points from JR Smith, 16 points from their bench and a DNP-CD from Tristan Thompson.

"We've got to help 'Bron", JR Smith said after the opener. "They were basically doing the same thing we're doing, but they executed better than we did". He was my matchup, and I think they did a great job of communicating throughout the whole game, knowing where I was and knowing where our teammates was. "Just letting a few of their guys get open looks and get a good feel". The no. 3 picks from the 2016 and 2017 National Basketball Association drafts have excelled in the playoffs this year, and they are vastly superior to JR Smith and Kyle Korver, who they are matching up with.

"A number of players have been stepping up for them". He had his worst outing of the postseason during Game 1, scoring just 15 points on the afternoon, but Boston knows better than to expect a repeat effort Tuesday night.

Lue said he disagreed the team was soft. "I think that's an obvious question". We need them to do that. The Cavaliers star had seven of Cleveland's nine turnovers after accruing eight in the entire four-game, second-round sweep of the Raptors. Many expected him to fail again.

Cleveland Cavaliers center Kevin Love posts up a defender during the first half of Game 1 against the Boston Celtics in the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden in Boston.

"I expect him to have a big response", Kevin Love said Monday. Since he came back to Cleveland, since I've been here, he's always responded big. "We've got to be locked in to play well on both ends of the court". "He's going to approach this game as one where he's going to have to lead and bounce back".

They will broadcast up to seven live games per week throughout the regular season and the first and second rounds of the playoffs, as well as every game of the conference finals and NBA Finals.

When the possibility of a lineup change was posed, Lue said, "It's definitely something we have to weigh". "Just being aggressive and making the right play".
