LeBron, Cavs have reeling Celtics in must-win for Game 2

LeBron, Cavs have reeling Celtics in must-win for Game 2

Road game, home game, it doesn't matter.

Antetokounmpo averaged career highs in almost all statistical categories including points (22.9), rebounds (8.8), assists (5.4), blocks (1.9) and steals (1.6) per game.

But that didn't stop Wizards guard Bradley Beal from opining that the Cavaliers - the same Cavaliers who are tearing through the Eastern Conference playoffs to the tune of nine wins in nine outings with an average point differential of 10 points per game - were fortunate to dodge them. Cleveland rang up 116.3 points per game against Boston, led by 29.3 per game from LeBron James.

To the National Hockey League playoffs, and it's a bit silly to say this about a team that's already proven its bona fides by making it to the eastern conference finals, but can we finally start taking the Ottawa Senators seriously?

The win was the Cavaliers' 12th in a row in the playoffs (one shy of matching the National Basketball Association record, set by the 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers), dating back to last year's Finals, while the Celtics' five-game home playoff winning streak was stopped. He scored six quick points in the second quarter when Kyrie Irving and LeBron were resting.

"There's nothing to figure out", Thomas said.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said his optimism remained high, and that he was "really encouraged" by his team's performance over the final 18 minutes of the game.

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.

Love got the Cavaliers rolling in the second half when he drew a shooting foul while attempting a three-pointer and knocked down all three of the ensuing free throws. "That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table". "But I should be much better (Friday)".

But here's the rub for top-seeded Boston on Friday night: James said he wasn't even playing at peak condition.

They can win by not giving up, a hallmark of their team all year.
