LeBron, Love help Cavs rout Celtics 117-104 in Game 1

LeBron, Love help Cavs rout Celtics 117-104 in Game 1

They're not on 'Space Jam.' Like, they lace up their shoes just like us. "In this next series, we have some matchups he can definitely take advantage of and it's on me to make sure we do that". Boston's little big man, who named All-NBA second team Thursday.

So much for the layoff hurting the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As posted by ESPN, the Cavaliers are hands-on favorite to win the series against the Celtics. "They just happened to play better than us in Game 1 and we've just got to protect home court in Game 2 and get the win". If Al Horford shows up and the Celtics' cast of supporting characters make nearly every open three, sure, they could steal a game or three.

Will it be a walk in the park for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers? "One of the reasons they're great at rebounding is - their effort to the glass is great, (Kevin) Love and (Tristan) Thompson specifically - but they're also working against scrambling defenses a lot". They can put Channing Frye in the game, who is a knock-down shooter. "They lace up their shoes just like us".

"And the problem, Bill, here is he's not athletic enough to do that". "If I get five or six shots, if I get 15 shots, it don't matter to me, as long as we win".

Cleveland trapped Isaiah Thomas and forced a turnover on the very first play of the game, setting in motion how the remainder of the game played out. The Celtics gave games away because they felt their inconsistent shooting to throw them completely off their game.

In what was expected to be a competitive game between the East's first and second seeds, the Cavaliers just upheld their playoff status quo: to dominate and flat-out embarrass the opposing team.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens has had to establish a fine balance with Brown. This is good news for the Celtics. "The first time in history - that's pretty cool.". No amount of ball movement and no amount of back cuts are going to save the Celtics on their own. While all of the players and coaches on the Celtics team at that point were different than the players and coaches from 2010, LeBron admitted that he still thought about what happened in 2010.

"That alone tells you how valuable playing basketball at this level is", Crowder said.

But James believes there is far more the Cavaliers can do to be successful on the court. The offense was running well for the majority of the game, but no one was able to hit their shots until the game was out of reach.

The Celtics were led by Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder, who each scored 21 points. Against the Cavaliers it will have to be everyone. Boston must find a way to slow James while not getting beaten up by a supporting cast, which other than Kevin Love's 32-point game, didn't produce at its usual high rate.

Stevens admitted prior to the game that he wanted to avoid scrambling defensively, leading to more open shots and difficulty rebounding. They don't have a defender with the size and athletic ability to keep up. "They play their traditional way". He led the Cavaliers to a four-game sweep of the Celtics during the 2015 postseason, while averaging 27.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 6.0 assists, and his stats have gradually gotten even better against Boston since then.

The Celtics had to come out swinging against the defending champs but they had no answer for LeBron who absolutely toyed with them for the entire game.
