Defending LeBron James? I'm the NBA's second best, claims Celtics' Marcus Morris

"I think they are one of the most well-coached teams in our league", James said. His 34.3 scoring average in these playoffs is his highest since the 2009 postseason.

The series starts Sunday in Boston. In the past, Thompson has killed the Celtics on the glass, but now Boston has a player in Baynes who can match his physicality. But, with the Cavs former superstar point guard in street clothes on the Celtics bench, this series becomes much more interesting. The Celtics rallied to win round one (4-3) against the Bucks and led the third round (4-1) over the 76ers.

LeBron has been at the top of his game in these playoffs.

Rozier has flourished in a starting role since Irving was sidelined in mid-March. Love averaged 20.5 points and 11.5 rebounds vs. Toronto, shooting.475 from the field.

"When I first got here, I wasn't sure why, or where I was going to fit", Morris said. "Obviously guys been going down all year and it's like you never know who's going to down". Cleveland was in such disarray it seemed like a foregone conclusion that James would opt out of his contract after the season and leave Ohio.

Rozier is from Shaker Heights, Ohio, a suburb on Cleveland's east side. "Just staying in attack mode, miss or make on the offensive end, making the right decision playing hard and then on both ends on the glass just trying to clean up as best I can".

"I haven't reflected on it", James said. "He's gotten better and better. He's a local guy".

Facing Antetokounmpo and Philadelphia's Ben Simmons in the second round should have helped prepare Boston for James.

Here's a quick preview of what to expect in this Eastern Conference Final Rematch.

Tuesday, May 15: Cleveland at Boston, 8:30 p.m.

Listen to LeBron after Cleveland's 128-93 Game 4 massacre of Toronto for the embarrassing 4-0 sweep of the Raptors that sealed the Cavs' Finals encounter against Boston: "I'm going to get a lot of rest from here on", said LeBron, who could afford to score a second lowest 29 points in four games because his four fellow starters combined for 66 points in the series-clinching triumph. Despite the predictions of most experts (five of five ESPN NBA Insiders picked the Cavs) and Las Vegas (Cleveland opened as 3-to-1 favorites) Boston can give the Cavs a run for their money. The Pacers were physical, resilient and confident. The situation felt like a death knell on Boston's season, but the young Celtics rallied.

"Boston is better than Indiana", Cavs forward Kyle Korver said.

"I think it's really meaningful (for Irving), but he's good at focusing on what he can control and there's nothing he can do about missing (this series)", Brad Stevens said on Saturday, after Celtics practice in Waltham.

They have a great crowd".

While his National Basketball Association career has not been completely without incident since (he missed four weeks this season after slicing open his hand while punching a hotel room glass picture frame out of frustration in Los Angeles), his fire, passion and willingness to put his body on the line has made him a central figure for a franchise that has made the playoffs every year of his career. "Now that we're through that series, we're glad".
