Tyronn Lue's shortcomings key in Game 1

16 May 2018

His Celtics are three games away from heading to the NBA Finals. I've been down 0-1.

"I think we're very alert to the fact that we'll get a heavyweight punch on Tuesday night", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

BOSTON - For the second time in the three postseason series the Cleveland Cavaliers have played this spring, LeBron James and the Cavs find themselves needing to bounce back from a blowout loss in Game 1, after the Boston Celtics trounced Cleveland 108-83 on Sunday. Numerous issues that plagued the Cavaliers in their opening round win over the Indiana Pacers cropped up as the young Celtics really challenged them. "So, you have to make it as hard as possible on him and guard the other guys well". 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.

Kane's England team-mate Jamie Vardy scored two of Leicester's four goals. "It's not the time to talk of next season". Carlo Ancelotti was in charge at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea set the previous record of 103 goals in 2009-10.

Rather than learn from my mistakes, I'm deciding to go down this road once again, because the statistics, and my memory tell me that there is not a chance in hell LeBron is losing in Boston on Tuesday night after that terrible showing in game one on Sunday.

LeBron James finished with a 2018 playoff-low 15 points as the Celtics defence, led by Marcus Morris, swarmed the Cavaliers star. He also recorded seven turnovers to nine assists, and the Cavs were down by more than 20 points for much of the game.

The Cleveland Cavaliers struggled to shoot the ball against the Boston Celtics throughout Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on Sunday afternoon, but those offensive lulls compounded into defensive issues. He has no weakness on either end of the floor, and his defense was the primary reason why Love shot a subpar 5-of-14 from the field in Game 1.

LeBron rarely has bad games back-to-back though, particularly in the playoffs, and he will come out breathing fire in Game 2.

A combination of existing pieces and guys brought via trade or free agency has turned the Rockets into a legit contender. The game plan offensively and defensively against the 76ers was beyond impressive. "I get it with the Kyrie thing".

James then went on to explain how the Cavs came back down the court but player Jordan Clarkson missed his shot. "We weighed it 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". You commend that. We have an opportunity to look at a lot of film tomorrow and see ways they were making us uncomfortable, making myself off-balance and not have a rhythm all game.

In the first-round against the Pacers, James scored just 24 points on 7-for-17 shooting in his first-ever opening round Game 1 loss.

After all, the team shot a paltry 4-of-26 from beyond the arc, which included an 0-5 mark by LeBron.

"We can't really dwell on what happened in Game 1 or any of the games in the Playoffs", Horford reiterated.

The day is often marked by individuals paying respect to their mothers and recalling their roles in their upbringing. I have rewritten the verse from Proverbs 31 to say, " Many sisters do noble things, but you surpass them all".

One more reason why signing James is a good idea for the Philadelphia 76ers is that he can serve as a mentor for the team's best players. "It's not just me". That, JR Smith said, is a sign James' supporting cast needs to do more. 'But the best players generally remember the most and have the sharpest memories'.
