And it should nearly go without saying that Lue's new plan is really just one attempted trick. You know that scene in Billy Madison where Billy comes out to recess during dodgeball and says "now you're all in big, big trouble" then lays waste to the first graders?
More worryingly as far the Cavs are concerned, LeBron has not scored 30 points in any of those meetings, while he's passed the threshold six times in the first 11 games he's played in this post-season.
The Celtics were on the floor and very much in the lens of their followers.
James was sensational in the first quarter, scoring 21 points.
Game 3 takes place on Sunday at Quicken Loans Arena with tip-off at 1.30am United Kingdom time.
"I felt like it was uncalled for that type of play there", Horford said. "We're playing hard. We've got each other's backs, and that's it". Obviously incidental. His shoulder hit me right square in my jaw.

Rookie sensation Charles LeClerc earned his second points finish of the season in 10th place, behind Sergio Perez's Force India . Also suffering mechanical issues were Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Ocon for McLaren and Force India respectively.
He returned a few minutes later and finished out the half with what the Cavaliers said was a strained neck. Having 60 paint points is way too many.
"That's a good question".
"It didn't affect my game after that".
"We will see what we are made of on Saturday". The Cavs had 15 turnovers Tuesday, thanks in large part to the Celtics jumping into passing lanes or creating takeaways with active hands.
"The most encouraging thing to me was that we weathered that storm", Stevens said. "It took a full team effort, everybody off the bench, and guys we just kept sending at him". They've been playing extremely well throughout these playoffs. There is just no help for LeBron outside of Love and Korver. "I just think we did a great job of that".
Love said he thought the Cavs were a "little soft" in the first half in Game 1. "That's what I tried to do". Regardless of who Boston throws at him, the King will get his. We need them to do that.
Tyronn Lue's shortcomings key in Game 1
LeBron James finished with a 2018 playoff-low 15 points as the Celtics defence, led by Marcus Morris , swarmed the Cavaliers star. LeBron rarely has bad games back-to-back though, particularly in the playoffs, and he will come out breathing fire in Game 2.
BOSTON - It turned out it wasn't just about a Cavaliers' fast start.
Frustration got the better of Smith who went scoreless, missing all of his seven shots.
"Usually when Bron has these kind of games, the next game he does something legendary", said Thompson. "We've got to be able to find someone who can match his toughness". A jumper from LeBron James trimmed Boston's lead to six with 4:42 to play but the Celtics scored the next eight points to pull away for the win.
Auerbach's spirit was definitely with the Celtics that 2007-2008 season, as they won the National Basketball Association championship that year, spearheaded by their Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. "I can understand why they gave me a flagrant". We had a really tough loss; he came out and played really well and started that game off extremely well.
We all saw what happened in game one.
James was on the attack from the opening tip.
