NBA Eastern Conference Game 2 Betting Prediction: Boston Celtics vs

Boston MA USA Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown dunks and scores against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the third quart

He's probably ready to explode after that lackluster showing, especially since he remembers just about every play thanks to his awe-inspiring postgame recollection (besides one of his team-high seven turnovers, which he conveniently left out of his play-by-play with reporters).

Stevens assigned Marcus Morris to chase James from the opening tip all the way practically to the showers. James had to revert on jump shots for much of the game, barring a couple of layups he completed primarily via cuts to the basket. Unless something changes the momentum of this series, the Celtics should go ahead 2-0.

But it is just the first game. Since then he has played no more than three seasons for each of the three previous teams before signing with the Boston Celtics in the 2017 offseason. No doubt this will be a significantly closer game, but the Celtics deserve to be favorites, and if they win will likely do it by more than a solitary point. In fact, only 6 of James' points and 4 of James' field goal attempts came within four feet of the rim in Game 1.

'I don't think it's that rare, ' he added.

The Boston Celtics systematically dismantled the Cleveland Cavaliers piece by piece in Game 1 of the Conference Finals series.

He's got a teammate by the name of LeBron James that's had a way of responding after lopsided playoff defeats.

LeBron doesn't always lose and play poorly in Game 1 of a playoff series, but it's happened often enough to at least look into what the man is saying. And when LeBron isn't all that great in Game 1, he tends to follow it up with a big Game 2 (unless he's playing the Warriors in the NBA Finals). In 34 minutes of action, Morris had 21 points on 7-12 shooting and 10 rebounds. While Lue heavily suggested Thompson will start Game 2, he better hope his Game 1 gaffe doesn't come back to bite the team.

He and his supporters have said the charges are politically motivated by Najib to end his career. He jailed his former deputy on charges of sodomy and corruption.

Although it's just one loss for the Cavs, it's definitely concerning.

He didn't even really say that his defense of LeBron James was what made the difference in the Game 1 win for Boston.

LeBron James has made Boston's TD Garden his personal playground during the playoffs in recent years. "They've been hitting teams first, and also, they have a ton of movement and are able to switch on the defensive end, offensive end".

Aren't the best of the lot like that-if not the majority of them? "We fed off the crowd and we kept it going throughout the game". Of course, with James going just 3-10 against the Celtics other defenders, including Jaylen Brown and throwing away the ball eight more times, it was more than just Morris.

Cleveland's shooter-centric lineup failed them in Game 1, so they're going big in Game 2.

Al Horford had 20 points for the Celtics and met little resistance from Kevin Love, who has been starting at center for Cleveland.
