Cavs send Celtics to second straight disheartening loss

Cleveland barely raised a sweat on Friday as they took a commanding 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Eastern Conference will finally catch up to the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

A familiar scene played out inside TD Garden in Boston on Wednesday night.

That's not the type of team Boston is.

The sting of this loss, and this series for that matter, should motivate the returning Celtics next season.

James has always been considered one of the game's most powerful and physical specimens, and those characteristics were certainly on display Wednesday night, along with his brilliant mind.

"It's hard to take", Al Horford said. We're staying together. We're owning up to this.

Games 3 and 4 will be Sunday and Tuesday in Cleveland, where the Celtics will fight to regain their pride and stave off elimination. The best plan to slow down James might be the obvious idea of doubling as ESPN Staff Writer, Chris Forsberg, quotes Brad Stevens' about in his recent article. What else do you do? Stevens pondered late Friday night as he addressed the media from a podium. I don't care if we win by 200 points. We've got your way to see if they can rally back in game two at 8:30pm on May 19 via live stream. We played probably better than the score indicated (in Game 1), but not good.

That one was critical to clinching Cleveland's first championship since the Browns won the National Football League title in 1964. This was a must-win game for the Celtics, and just as it was in Game 1, they were out of it nearly immediately.

The wine and gold may have struggled in different areas, but they exposed the majority of Boston's weakness - both offensively and defensively - in the first 48 minutes of the series. The C's retaliated by capturing the next two contests in Chicago, before wrapping up the series in six games and moving on to its second-round series with Washington.

And with the No. 1 pick in June's draft, earned via a pick swap with the Nets and some good fortune in this week's lottery, the Celtics are likely to add point guard Markelle Fultz. That said, the Monstars were also pretty top heavy with Pound and Bupkus dropping 71 of the team's 77 points, but we digress. "We have to get focused for Game 3". "I knew I wouldn't feel that great after the game, and I don't feel that great right now".

"I don't want to put that on any one guy". "They play their traditional way". Much alike with the first game, the end game statistics were not accurate to the actual performance that was displayed through the first three quarters of the game; such as the Celtics scoring 42 points in the paint to the Cavaliers 40, as well as getting 13 second chance points to 12. Following the game, the Boston coach seemed just as miffed and intrigued by LeBron's progression. Mid range and total shooting efforts were heavily favouring the Cavaliers as well, who shot 56%, whereas the Celtics only connected on 37% of their shots. I'm not sure I can say the same for the Cavs, who could come into this game overconfident and a bit complacent. "We're going to fight through it".
