David Ortiz Sends Message To LeBron James Before Celtics-Cavs Game 2

An ex-Gator is on the playoff run of his career. Can he and the Celtics beat LeBron? | Miami Herald

It was just one game.

Morris was huge in game one and will need to continue to be huge the rest of the series.

LeBron James often talks about feeling out a series - about coming back in a Game 2 with something entirely different.

The Celtics out-rebounded the Cavaliers, 48-40, including a dominant 42-31 edge on the defensive end of the floor, and registered five blocked shots as opposed to the three Cleveland sent away from the hoop in the loss. "We have another opportunity to be better".

"I expect him to have a big response", Love said. I imagine it'll be a lot like Game 2 against Indiana. We played well with that lineup.

'We come back down, miss another shot, and then Tatum came down and went 94 feet and made right hand lay-up, time out, ' James concludes. "I've been down before in the postseason".

The Celtics came out fighting against the Cavaliers from word go in Game 1 and Cleveland just couldn't cope all four quarters.

Kevin Love had 17 points and eight rebounds, and James added nine assists and seven boards.

It didn't matter in a blowout win, but if the Celtics find themselves in a much tighter tilt on Tuesday, they're going to need Rozier and his fancy finger roll to keep the Cavs honest in the paint. "So, you have to make it as hard as possible on him and guard the other guys well".

James' 979 postseason points against Boston were the most by any player against any opponent in the last 50 years. As a team, the Cavs finished the game with three blocked shots - two of them by LeBron James and one by Kyle Korver. And when LeBron isn't all that great in Game 1, he tends to follow it up with a big Game 2 (unless he's playing the Warriors in the NBA Finals). Miami won the series in five.

Just as the Cavaliers rapidly rose to contender status with James on the roster, they could become a nonfactor just as quickly if the multi-time league MVP heads to Philadelphia. The Cavaliers have yet to lose back-to-back games in the playoffs but do they have any answers for Game 2 of this National Basketball Association matchup? James' intelligence, athleticism, midrange game and ability to destroy teams around the rim make him seemingly unstoppable. Equally notable, in the six Game 2s he's lost when facing an 0-1 deficit, he's averaged 23.8. That was when the Cavs called a "timeout", as James recalled, and he used the pause to signal the end of his narrative, at which point his performance was met with some amused applause.

Tyronn Lue told the Cleveland Cavaliers to put Game 1 behind them, chalk it up to a bad game in the opener of the Eastern Conference finals, and get ready for Game 2 of the best-of-seven series on Tuesday. That's when he demolished the Pistons by scoring 25 consecutive points in a 109-107 double-overtime victory.

It started in the 2012 Eastern Conference finals.

Game 3 is Saturday in Cleveland.

In a 2014 story about James" powers of recall, ESPN's Brian Windhorst quoted a childhood friend of the future Hall of Famer as saying, "When you play [the video game] "Madden' with him now you have to be careful which teams you take, because he will know what your game plans were in the past when you've played with him and he'll pick the opposing team knowing what plays you want to run".

Thompson's defense on veteran Al Horford, an emerging playoff star for the Celtics, could be one of those new-look options, Lue said. Defense is always a collective effort for the Celtics, but Morris outscored and out rebounded James as his primary defender, and that might be the most impressive performance of these playoffs.
