Cleveland Cavaliers thump Boston Celtics to start Eastern Conference finals

19 May 2017

The Celtics fell to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers 117-104 on Wednesday night at TD Garden in Boston.

"He's really setting the tone for us in these playoffs". There was no concern about too much rest. That proved prophetic when Tristan Thompson had five offensive rebounds early in the game.

And, just like that, it seems like it's happening all over again.

Tip-off is at 8:30 p.m. During this current decade, he's personally forced franchises to rethink their entire development strategy.

"This is going to be a LeSweep, just like IN was a LeSweep, and Toronto was a LeSweep". He scored 38 points in Game One and now has 5,885 and is now just 102 points behind Jordan.

Kevin Love is one of the three main players on the Cavaliers, but he hasn't played great in the playoffs yet. The last time he failed to do so was the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals against the Orlando Magic.

France's BPCE chief exec says Macron's win good news for economy
The Stoxx Europe 600 Index slipped 0.1 per cent at the close , while the Euro Stoxx 50 Index lost less than 0.5 per cent. He spoke with "the French president-elect to congratulate him on his victory", White House spokesman Sean Spicer said .

Road game, home game, it doesn't matter.

"This is going to be the all-time Leastern Conference cakewalk to the NBA Finals".

For the past half a decade, since the Eastern Conference's Miami Heat won their first championship with their Big 3, there has been one question on everybody's mind, who's going to stop LeBron?

Boston had their five-game home playoff winning streak snapped. That only occurred in 2006, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

Instead of giving the the specifics of how the Cavs decimated the Celtics, I am going to give you hope for game 2 and beyond, and no not the we still have the number 1 pick talk, but the talk of how the Boston Celtics can win this series in seven games.

If the Cavaliers want to look for something positive to take from Boston's futile rally, it's that they'll take the Celtics seriously in Game 2 on May 19.

Tornado touches down in Oklahoma, no injuries reported
Authorities have released the name of a man who was killed when the tornado tore through a mobile home park in the area. At least one person has been killed by a tornado that roared through a portion of a western Oklahoma town.

Brown was an afterthought in the first round against the Chicago Bulls and had some contributions against the Washington Wizards-particularly in Game 7, when he scored nine points in 20 minutes on the floor-but he played his best game of the 2017 NBA Playoffs against Cleveland on Wednesday, registering 10 points and nine rebounds. Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals was over midway through the second quarter. The only prior victory occurred during the 2015 East Finals vs. Atlanta.

LeBron only turned his back once, but when Cleveland finds something that works they go back to that well.

Next game, if Jae Crowder still can't man him up, the Celtics' bigs should be on their toes every single time to provide weak side defense in the paint. "Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart all play about 30 minutes per game and that arrangement often leaves a 6'3" player at the three.

Out of the gate, the speed, athleticism, and power was on a different level for the Celtics, who floundered in the first quarter and only found their footing on occasion. His last loss took place on Game 4 on May 6, 2012, against the New York Knicks. J.R. Smith has a four-inch height advantage, but that won't become costly for either team.

Before you mark me down as insane, please understand how I'm defining the word "win".

Iguodala, Pachulia practice, still questionable for Game 3
So one would logically think maybe it will take longer, but I'm hoping that's not true and we'll have him for Game 3 . The Warriors came back from a 25-point deficient to win game one of the Western Conference finals by two points.
