Despite 42 from LeBron, Cletics take 2-0 lead

Celtics withstand James' huge night

With the win, the Celtics improve to 9-0 at home for the NBA Playoffs and they make King James down 0-2 in a series for the first time since 2008. He led both teams with six turnovers (bringing his total to 13 through the first two games) and was just 5-of-10 from the stripe.

In the opening stanza, the Cavaliers led for almost all of it - taking a double-digit lead in the first quarter and led by as many as 11 late in the second quarter. A flawless snapshot of that was the first quarter, when James scored 21 of his 42 points in the opening period and Cleveland led by just four, 27-23. "It didn't affect my game after that".

"Scary Terry" came life in the third after scoring only two points in the first-half.

Boston's brash forward had spilled beyond the baseline while finishing a third-quarter layup through the contact of Tristan Thompson and then, sitting at the feet of Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck in a game where the score would soon be tied, Morris turned toward Thompson, who was lying next to him, and repeatedly screamed directly in his face.

Boston shot 44.2 percent in the first half, while Cleveland knocked down more than 50 percent of their shots.

Turning Point - A cursory glance would tell you that the third period (and second half) were the Wine & Gold's undoing.

Celtics guard Rozier tallied 14 points in the third quarter to help the Celtics erase their seven-point half-time deficit.

Kevin Love had a double-double as well with 22 points and 15 rebounds. "Our group in tough times, we've always found a way". "We gotta be tougher mentally and physically". "He came back, but when he came back, I don't think he had the same punch that he had before he left as far as attacking the basket, playing with that force and power we talked about at shoot-around", Lue said. "They're gooning the game up and we've got to do the same thing". Bron did all of this in a new pair of LeBron 15s that we see above which was inspired by the SVSM Air Zoom Generation, which will be releasing at the end of the month in case you didn't already know. Game 4 goes down on Tuesday night (5/21) in Cleveland before heading back to Beantown next Wednesday (5/23).

The Cavs not only won their two ensuing home games, but also Game 5 in Detroit before ultimately losing the series in seven games to the two-time defending Eastern Conference champions.
