Cavaliers get off to quick start in rout of Celtics

Led by 38-points from LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers have flexed their Championship muscles, with a 117-104 win over the number one seeded, Boston Celtics in game one of te Eastern Conference finals in Boston.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives to the basket past Boston Celtics forward Amir Johnson in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. "Boston" on a light chart could only dream of - in the first round, the team, brad Stevens recouped from the account 0:2 in opposition to Chicago, and the series against Washington lasted the maximum seven matches.

James scored at will in the first half and the Cavs built a 26 point lead. Love opened up the floor for James, burying outside jumpers and forcing Boston to leave defenders one-on-one with James.Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder led the Celtics with 21 points each.

17 - Points for Celtics star Isaiah Thomas. Lebron James reminded us all why he is consistently an MVP candidate, with the Celtics struggling all game to figure out how to hinder his strong cuts and unparalleled play-making; swapping around numerous players to defend him from Isaiah Thomas, Tyler Zeller, Al Horford all the way down to rookie Jaylen Brown.

One mistake Macron's team says it will not make is to bet on a Merkel loss in September, as Hollande seemed to do five years ago. He won one of the most lopsided presidential victories in modern French history, but it was in many respects an empty one.

The Cleveland Cavaliers showed no signs of rust despite having not played since May 7 and emerged victorious against the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden. "In this next series, we have some matchups he can definitely take advantage of and it's on me to make sure we do that". James and Cleveland's 3-point shooters kept the Celtics at an arm's length in the fourth, and the final 13-point margin was massaged by Boston's reserves in the final minutes. Quick aside: a kid I coached in middle school was in Olynyk's class at Gonzaga, and played intramural (or pickup, don't recall exactly) basketball with him. "I know we have to clean it up quick, because they haven't lost a game in the playoffs". Head coach Tyronn Lue mentioned that Love getting involved inside helps get his three-point shots to drop, and it worked tonight. He is averaging 34.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 7.1 assists in the playoffs. So far, Thomas, Stevens and the Celtics haven't had answers - and it's hard to see from where they'll come. Marcus Smart attempted to shake things up by tangling with Thompson, perhaps to establish something for Friday's Game 2. "The conundrum is, do you double and risk giving up those easy step-in 3s and the rebounds?" Lue then added, "When LeBron's playing at that level other guys just have to be solid and we have a good chance to win". "Obviously he got comfortable with what we were doing on the defensive end, and he had his way". James' teams have now won a road game in 29 consecutive series and going back to last season's NBA Finals, the Cavs have won seven consecutive road playoff games.

But more than that, Love's playing with force and focus.

James was not the only player to impress for Cleveland. "I don't mind it, '" Love said. His four best games this postseason have come in either Game 1 or Game 2.

The Celtics won the first two games of the series, despite falling behind by double-digits early in both cases.
