Cavaliers might need forgotten Tristan Thompson more than ever

Shaq plays police chief for a day

He didn't speak to reporters at practice Monday, but after the game Sunday credited Celtics coach Brad Stevens for his schemes and both Morris and Morris' teammates for the effort.

"We know we just have to come in the next game and play better", Love said.

"Looking at the statistics, over the last three years of at least 30 years out of all the guys who guarded Al Horford, Tristan is No 1 in the league defending Al Horford".

Cleveland is looking to rebound after failing to keep up with the Celtics - and their defenders tasked with stifling LeBron James - in a 108-83 Game 1 loss on the road Sunday.

When the possibility of a lineup change was posed, Lue said, "It's definitely something we have to weigh".

"We're going to take those same looks going into Game 2 if the opportunity presents itself", James said.

"We weighed (starting Thompson) before the series started, but we'd won seven out of eight and we weren't going to adjust until someone beat us and we didn't play well with that lineup that got us to this point", Lue said.

It's a small sample size, but in three games this season against Cleveland, Horford's offensive rating dropped to 92.4 points per 100 possessions with Thompson on the court, from 109.5 with Thompson on the bench.

It's the kind of message you don't expect to see on a U.S. election campaign bus: " FOLLOW ME TO MEXICO ". Law&Crime has reached out to Williams for comment about the bus, but he has yet to respond.

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

"I have zero level of concern at this stage", James said.

Getting outscored 60-38 in the paint in Game 1 should have been enough to convince Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue to make a change. We had a really tough loss and he came out and played really well. "Bad first game. There's lot of things we can do better in the next one".

Horford said the Cavaliers will be a more traditional team if they do turn to Thompson as a starter. "When I do check into the game, whether it's him or [Aron] Baynes, I just try to run the floor, set pick-and-rolls, just try to work them on both ends so that hopefully by the second half his legs might be a little exhausted where he might not make that three that he makes in the first half".

"I think in the first half we were a little soft", he said Monday. If we're able to do that, we'll be able set a tone early.

James saw his six-game playoff win streak in Boston snapped and turned in his worst game of the postseason, with 15 points on 5-for-16 shooting, seven turnovers and a plus-minus of minus-32 offsetting his nine assists and seven rebounds. "But at the same time, we can't rely on that".

"I expect him to have a big response", Love said. Game 2's going to be very important. "Whoever they put on the floor, we're going to have to help appropriately, depending on who's on the floor, and we're going to have to guard him as hard as we can, which is easier said than done".
