Look At What LeBron James Is Doing Hours Before Game 2 Starts

On Sunday afternoon, the Boston Celtics were able to take game 1 of their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Raptors fans were clearly frustrated by how easy it looked for them to execute against the team that had dispatched Toronto with relative ease. He has scored 994 playoff points against Boston, the most by any player against a single team in postseason history. We know we have to play better.

"What happened? The first possession, we ran them down all the way to two on the shot clock, Marcus Morris missed the jump shot, followed it up, they got a dunk", he said, per USA Today.

Morris backed up every every bit of talk from before the game, and now it is James that has to figure out how to get around this defense.

Translation: one win does not a series make. The veteran National Basketball Association handicapper is on a sizzling 17-7 run on his point-spread National Basketball Association playoff picks, and he's also on a 9-2 run in games involving either Boston or Cleveland.

Boston improved to 8-0 this postseason at TD Garden.

Lue simply wants James to attack mismatches more often when the Celtics get caught on a switch defensively that should work in the Cavs' favor.

"But for me, there's no level of concern no matter how bad I played tonight with seven turnovers, how inefficient I was shooting the ball".

"That's what we've been doing all season".

"A number of players have been stepping up for them. I think that Coach [Brad Stevens] kinda has to determine that", said Horford. We need them to do that. We've got to clean those up. LeBron James had 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting to go along with nine assists, seven rebounds and seven turnovers in perhaps his worst playoff showing this season. I think even early on with the shots that we had, we had some wide-open looks that just didn't go.

"We're OK with that".

Having lost the 2017 Eastern Conference Finals to the Cavaliers, Boston are looking for revenge but they had been written off even before the playoffs began with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward out.

They shot 51.2 percent and had 27 assists on 43 field goals, while holding a massive 60-38 edge in points in the paint.

"You definitely have to adjust".

There are some other team-specific reasons why James would be an ideal offseason signing for the upstart 76ers.

"We'll see ways we can be better and get our offence into a better rhythm".

The Pacers opted to use their best "LeBron-stopper" (Thaddeus Young) to make Cavaliers big man Kevin Love uncomfortable, a strategy which worked to a tee and resulted in a surprising seven-game series for the Cavaliers in the opening round.

Team president Rich Gotham will represent the team on the actual podium, and likely be sporting more traditional garb.

Boston entered with the same gameplan as Toronto did in the series, which was taking those shooters away and forcing LeBron to carry a large load offensively, but the Celtics have personnel better suited to that goal, with a group of young, talented defenders who stayed engaged. "We came out with a lot of energy".

Speaking of Thompson, who tallied eight points and 11 rebounds off the bench in Game 1... a report issued from ESPN on Monday morning hinted that Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue might consider inserting the 6-10 rebounding machine into the starting lineup for Game 2 (Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. EST).
