Baynes plays well as Celtics down Cavs

We'll see if it is successful.

James has done a great job of keeping his offseason plans to himself, but still, rumors are hinting at possible teams he could go to in free agency.

Bad habits are hard to break.

For all of LeBron's greatness - especially during a 21-point first quarter when it felt like he might top 80 - the Celtics outscored the Cavs by nine points with King James on the floor.

The end result of that game, regardless of how the series between the Cavaliers and the Celtics ends, is that it's not as much an indictment of the Raptors gameplan against LeBron, although Toronto certainly did have their rotation issues, as it's an indictment of the Raptors' execution.

With a chance to close the series on the road in Game 6, LeBron and the Cavs were thoroughly beaten (121-87) as the Pacers forced a decisive Game 7 back in Cleveland. The Cavs don't have enough knockdown shooters to destroy a double team. They enter the Eastern Conference Finals haven't not lost a home game all playoffs. The C's guard was just 4-for-10 from the floor and missed all three of his three-point bids, finishing with a modest eight points in Sunday's victory. Maybe, just maybe, the answer was there all along. They're also shooting 51.2 percent from the field. Those shots falling, the Cavaliers were brimming with confidence. "We came out with a lot of energy".

But the real way that Boston was able to impact Cleveland's offense was through solid execution on their own offensive end. The Cavaliers fell to the Celtics 107-94.

The lead catalyst to Boston's third quarter run?

We didn't make those mistakes in the first leg; we were very defensively concentrated in the first leg. I have to be satisfied for the work on the field".


"Looking at the statistics, over the last three years with at least 30 possessions [defending him], out of all the guys that have guarded Al Horford, Tristan is No. 1 in the league defending Al Horford", Lue said. He did have a game-high six turnovers, giving him 13 in the series so far.

"It was that point of the game where we needed to make plays", Horford said. We were s-- defensively.

I wouldn't look for the Celtic's to have a repeat performance of the opening game win.

Points at the line might be scarce for Boston in this showdown. "They will have to do that again Tuesday". "They always are anxious to respond, they're always ready to respond".

This incarnation of the Celtics is not only young and athletic but playing with a physicality that was missing at times last season. Rozier added 18 points. Putting Love in a position to succeed will be a big part of that. Yes, LeBron James had an uncharacteristically bad game in Game 1, but for Cleveland to win this series it needs Love to be the player he was against Toronto, when he scored over 20 points the final three games, instead of the one he was against in, when he had multiple single-digit games.

That's not toughness. That's not defense.

Smart said Smith's play was a "dirty shot".

"No, I like where we are", Kerr said. "I think they're playing tougher than we are". "We're going to use these days to really dive in on what needs to be done to help our ballclub be successful". "The good thing about our group is we've had a bunch of starting lineups this year". The Celtics have seen this kind of performance before, and it nearly never ends well. Larry Nance Jr. hasn't played a meaningful minute in two weeks. It shouldn't be surprising to see the Celtics trusting more and appearing to be on the same page. The Cavs' wings still struggle to fight over picks, and don't have the will to do so for a full 48 minutes. "He's going to approach this game as one he's going to have to lead and bounce back".
