Cavs star James goes to locker room after shot to jaw

Cavaliers notebook: Cavs show signs of 'peaking at the right time,' Celtics coach Brad Stevens says

The Celtics improved to 9-0 this postseason at TD Garden, where they've routinely fed off the energy of a crowd that keeps upping its ante.

It was basically over right there.

When the Cavs did finally show a little momentum, cutting Boston's lead to 14 at the end of the third quarter, the Celtics responded with a 7-0 run at the start of the fourth. The young players stepped up and played a big role in the game.

Al Horford and Brown were as close to flawless as you can get in a game like this.

LeBron finished the game with 15 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in 36 minutes, as the Celtics blew Cleveland away 108-83.

"It was that point of the game where we needed to make plays", Horford said.

James was a man possessed in the first quarter, dropping 21 points - his most of any quarter this post-season - as the Cavaliers shot out to an early lead.

While at Kansas, Marcus Morris averaged 12.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game according to sportsreference.com.

Could the Cavs sustain a bad game from LeBron James and win?

He had playoff lows of seven turnovers and 15 points.

I guess we can expect that happening again today. "As role players, we've got to play our role".

As expected, Tristan Thompson started in place of Kyle Korver in the hopes his presence could energize what was a sluggish Cavs offense in Game 1. 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. In fact, this was the first double-double in his postseason career. Though James has struggled from the free throw line, where he's now 1 for 4, he's been excellent everywhere else, going 5 for 6 overall and 3 for 4 from three - including one long triple that hit the front of the rim, popped up in the air and dropped through the hoop.

"He's obviously not going to have many games like that", said Stevens, well aware of not wanting to poke the bear.

"We are just going to try to make it as tough for him as we can", Rozier said. It is very hard to beat the Cavaliers when James plays like the best player on earth (especially during a first quarter that made it look like he was going to go off) and Love plays like an All-Star. Having 60 paint points is way too many. However, they still had a lot of talent and a superstar in Kyrie Irving to lead the team. He was zero for five from the three-point range.

Horford then drove for a 101-89 lead with 3:38 to play and scored another basket for a 14-point lead.

"The most encouraging thing to me was that we weathered that storm", Stevens said. "When he thought he had driving lanes, they made him kick it out to other shooters".

Celtics' defensive gameplan - The Celtics treated LeBron James with deference, clogging up the paint and plugging up all the driving lanes he tried to find off the bounce.
