Baynes plays well as Celtics down Cavs

The future is now for surprising Boston Celtics

Jaylen Brown scored 23 points and the Boston Celtics overcame a 42-point performance from LeBron James to beat Cleveland 107-94 on Tuesday, May 15 (Wednesday, May 16 in Manila) and take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.

Game 1 was an absolute nightmare for the Cavs by just about every measure.

The Celtics used a balanced attack as a half dozen players reached double figures.

Once again I look at this Boston team and applaud the job Brad Stevens has done.

Asked in the locker room by ESPN after the game if his head was OK, James nodded solemnly and said, "I'm OK".

Morris scored 21 points and added 10 rebounds while pestering James into a playoff-high seven turnovers - and a playoff-low 15 points - and the Celtics opened a 21-point, first-quarter lead to scorch Cleveland 108-83 in Game 1.

Another key to the team's success: Ainge hired Brad Stevens, who has shown in just a few seasons that he's one of the best head coaches in the National Basketball Association.

James, who managed just 15 points in the Game 1 loss, has won five consecutive East playoff series after losing the series opener.

Johnson enjoys best ever Players round
Also at 67 was Keith Mitchell, who only got into the tournament Wednesday when Paul Casey had to withdraw with an injury. And he putted like he was fed up with not seeing enough go in. "The greens were receptive, they're rolling flawless ".

Aron Baynes had power dunks and sank a key three-pointer to help power the Boston Celtics to another win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

But if it's one thing I've learned watching this year's group, it's to not doubt them. As I watch this series it's tough not to think all the way back to the Kyrie Irving trade before the season.

With the series shifting to OH on Saturday for Game 3, the Celtics road to an 18th championship banner is only going to get more hard. "We'll see how he feels".

"Last year we came off of a grueling, seven-game series against Washington", Horford said. "No matter what's going on on the floor, they're so composed in how they are with the team and the message that. keeps everyone calm". One positive aspect is that Game 3 won't take place until Saturday night, which will allow him a few extra days to more fully recover from whatever final outcome is determined. The Cavaliers missed their first 14 3-point attempts of the game and shot just 32 percent in the first half.

"But you've just got to give credit to Coach (Stevens), because he ends up making adjustments. whichever the matchup is, and giving us those options to go out there and execute on offense".

"We lost", Lue said.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, James now has three career playoff 40-point triple-doubles. "When he thought he had driving lanes, they made him kick it out to other shooters". "We didn't play well".
