The future is now for surprising Boston Celtics

The Cavs are heading back to Cleveland down 0-2 to the Celtics and staring down the possible ending of the LeBron James era. 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. James had just 15 points and missed all 5 of his three-point attempts in a Game 1 defeat. "We had a few rotations that we were a little late on". "We're going to use these days to really dive in on what needs to be done to help our ballclub be successful. He went out, and it allowed us to pick up our pressure even more". To me, the hardest championship is the first one, as an individual player and as a team, because you don't know - you don't quite know - if you can do it.

As for the Cavs most recent game, they saw Marcus Morris (yes, Marcus Morris) score 21 points while the King managed just 15.

LeBron was pretty bad in Game 1 and was sulking on the bench for most of the fourth quarter. But starters Thompson, JR Smith and George Hill combined for just 11 points on 5-of-17 shooting.

Whose advice should you follow to find the victor of Game 2?

With the West fielding the two best teams this season, the match-up between the Warriors and Rockets could likely be the most important series of the playoffs. The Celtics remained undefeated at home in the postseason with a 107-94 win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday. The Cavs are 6-1 when making as many or more threes than their opponent and just 2-3 when their opponent makes more triples. In the following six Game 2s, he upped his shooting percentage to 41.2 percent.

James appears to be doing everything he can to make that happen. It's nearly as if the period of time a player spends in his "prime" has been stretched like a rubber band. LeBron performed exactly as his teammates expected. The Celtics are expecting to see him driving more and taking matters into his own hands, which is usually his recipe for a monster game.

The Cavs apparently have an answer for their Game 1 struggles, and it's inserting Tristan Thompson in the starting lineup.

It was a collective effort made by the Cs which paid dividends against Tyronn Lue's side which never got any kind of offensive rhythm going.

J.R. Smith had an ugly performance.

James added 12 assists and 10 rebounds.

It's also possible-and perhaps more likely-that any plumes come from a lake or some other reservoir trapped in the ice. Galileo was passing some 200 kilometres (124 miles) above Europa's surface when it apparently flew through the plume.

Jaylen Brown had 23 points and eight rebounds to lead the Celtics, who were one basket shy of having all five starters in double-figures.

Here are the details for tonight's Game 2 between Boston and Cleveland, including the start time and online live stream info.

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost every facet of the game to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Who Is Feeling It From Downtown?

The Cavaliers were not as good from long-range. They're going to make their runs and have their moments.

He finished the opening quarter 8 of 13 from the field and 4 of 7 from the 3-point line.

Whatever the case, it's time to take this Celtics team seriously if you haven't already.

Hartstein has a surprising take on Game 2. But he said that Celtics have some very favorable matchups against the Cavaliers, especially in Al Horford, and "all basketball is about matchups". We'll see if it is successful.

So, LeBron can taunt the Celtics a bit by calling what they hope is their breakthrough victory just "a feel-out game".
