Celtics open series with authority, rout Cavs

Lebron Shows Off Incredible Memory of Terrible Start

Whether it was giving up favorable switches to the offense too quickly or sometimes completely unforced or simply losing track of a player for long enough for the shot to get off, these things were happening frequently enough that the Raptors defense was often scrambling to find a new adjustment to take away whichever player was hot in that game.

That in turn kept James from creating shots for his teammates. LeBron missed all five of his three-point attempts (when he's a three-point shooter, that's a win for the Celtics), with Kevin Love going 1-for-4, Kyle Korver 1-for-5 and J.R. Smith 0-for-3. Lebron was held to 15 points on 5-16 shooting, failed to make a shot beyond the arc, and had seven turnovers on the way to a Celtics drubbing over the Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-83.

Then James detailed how Celtics player Jayson Tatum threw the ball to Morris, who made a three-pointer.

Per the ESPN report, Lue thought about putting Thompson in at center to start Game 1, however he chose to stick to the lineup that led them to an easy 4-0 sweep of the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

But James was practically absent in their Game One tussle the other day. "It's what makes us the best team that we can be". He was disappointing in the earlier rounds because they lost his offense, but the Celtics can not be sacrificing that while trying to account for James.

Thompson has averaged 5.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game this postseason.

Listen to James after Game One: "I have zero level of concern at this stage".

Cavs fans will be hoping that it was just a bad night for James and he will be back to his best in Game 2.

The Celtics shockingly dominated the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals with a serious statement win, which left many wondering afterward if they picked this series wrong. "In the pick and rolls, they were able to get downhill a lot, so we've got to clean that up". Game 2's going to be very important. The Cavs will regroup and will come back with a much better performance in game 2.

A year after dropping the first two games at home against Cleveland in a five-game East final, the Celtics pounced on James, and the favoured Cavaliers were never really in it.

Boston Celtics forward Al Horford (42) and Cleveland Cavaliers center Kevin Love compete for control of the ball during the first quarter of Game 1 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference Finals, Sunday, May 13, 2018, in Boston. They are also 2-12 ATS following a game where they scored 85 or less.

"It's a team effort", Morris said after earning his first career playoff double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds while playing as the primary James stopper.

Stevens knows James is not going to be the same player they saw in Game 1.
