Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers: NBA Eastern Conference finals Game 2 live scores, blog After winning Game 7 against the Washington Wizards on Monday night, then following that up with a Draft Lottery victory on Tuesday night, the Boston Celtics couldn’t keep the good times rolling on Wednesday night during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron James lead the way with a dominant 38-point, nine-rebound, seven-assist performance, as the Cavs jumped out to a double-digit lead in the first quarter, and though the final score registered just a 14-point loss for the Celtics, the game was never in doubt.
Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers Most of the damage in Game 1 was done by only two players — James and Love. Kyrie Irving had just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting, and usually dependable sharpshooters J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver were a combined 2 for 8 as coach Tyronn Lue used a different second unit to start the second quarter with James resting. A loss Friday would also leave Boston with the daunting proposition of having to win four out of five games to take the series — a nearly impossible task against a team that since James returned to Cleveland in 2014-15 has a 33-4 playoff record against Eastern Conference opponents. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said his optimism remains high, and that he was “really encouraged” by his team’s performance over the final 18 minutes of the game. It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play.
