Boston Celtics: 5 reasons they can upset the Cleveland Cavaliers

The Celtics are the favorites going into Game 7 in Boston, as bet365 Sports has posted in their favor at 1.47, while the Wizards are not too far behind at 2.75. Coming off a Game 7 victory over Washington on Monday night, Boston missed 11 of its first 14 shots."They were the better team tonight".

"That felt pretty good", Celtics managing partner Wyc Grousbeck said.

The Celtics had just one day off after eliminating the Washington Wizards in Game 7 of the conference semifinals - but what a day it was.

This is Boston's first trip to the conference finals since 2012, the past year of an era fueled by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. "If not, they're going to get the rebound".

"With LeBron playing at this level, other guys just have to be solid and contribute", Cavaliers coach Ty Lue said. In reality, only one can guard James at a time when he's on a floor with four shooters, and that one will never be good enough. But as the final three quarters unfolded, the Celtics may have discovered some smaller lineups that could help them do big things moving forward. "The game wasn't always what we wanted it to be and it wasn't a ideal game". To be fair, what team does have a player to shut down James? Love, quiet in the Toronto series, scored 32 points against the Celtics.

He's the first player to score at least 275 points with 70 rebounds and 50 assists in his team's first eight postseason games.

He even has experience playing former US presidents, as he portrayed Bill Clinton in the film A Special Relationship . Fans can expect to see Katrina: American Crime Story sometime in 2018.

Boston may be the No. 1 seed in the East, but Cleveland still has LeBron James. Lue said. "Let's ride it while he's been playing great". "Kevin (Love), Kyrie (Irving), everybody else you know is just filling in". We'll do a better job getting Kevin involved, getting him more touches. Not only did LeBron's omnipresence give him the jitters, he even got spooked by Tristan Thompson. But we've got to be ready Game 3.

Boston did end the half on a positive note with Thomas draining a 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds to play that brought the Celtics within 61-39 at the half.

Suddenly, the Boston Celtics' future looks a lot better than their present. Olynyk was shoved to the ground by Oubre, who was then suspended.

Boston has had a much more hard postseason than the Cavs. Isaiah Thomas had a double-double with 17 points and 10 assists, but shot just 7-for-19 from the field while missing five of his seven 3-point attempts. They didn't just win this game, they gave the Celtics multiple looks and seemed to find that almost every single one worked. They swept Portland, swept Utah and have a 2-0 lead on San Antonio in the Western Conference finals. They are a flawless 9-0 in the playoffs while the Warriors are one better at 10-0 this postseason. "We don't care about what others say". "So we're going to have to play really well". All the days off have allowed him to play more than 42 minutes per game, and Cleveland hasn't looked anything like the team that almost had a.500 record over the final 50 games of the regular season.

"I'm hurting but it's the playoffs, so there's no excuses", he said, adding it's "My whole body" that hurts.
