NBA Playoffs 2018: What time, TV, channel is Cleveland Cavaliers vs

No one expected the Celtics to get where they are now, but we have to be realistic here. Irving, on the other hand, would play most of the season for Boston before undergoing surgery. While the Raptors probably had more talent overall, they didn't have anyone on James level and that was the difference.

The last time the Boston Celtics defeated LeBron James in a playoff series. Mike D'Antoni will play three or four behind the three point line and let Harden or Paul run isolations or high screen and rolls until the cows come home. He was officially shut down in April with a knee injury. Jayson Tatum is the Celtics' leading scorer this postseason, having joined the team just last summer as the No.3 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. The Celtics could make a series out of it, but the team's championship hopes are more likely to happen next season with a healthy roster led by Irving and Gordon Hayward.

Fast-forward seven months, and the starting lineups are unrecognizable from October.

This is the eighth time Cleveland and Boston have met in the postseason. It was a steal when they drafted him out of Louisville, and he's just showcasing his abilities. I think both teams will be doing a lot of switching on defense due to their players' versatility. But both sides looked strong in the previous round and are ready to battle. He was clearly gassed in Game 1 of the second round against the Toronto Raptors when he had just one day off following a grueling series. "We have to do a job of containing him as best a we can, and get the game to go the way we want it to go". This huge change in production will simply not cut it against the Cavaliers, who will be hungry to return to the NBA Finals for the third year in a row. The Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers in the first two rounds, but both of those teams are green. "It's nothing against the defense", said Terry Rozier.

"I'm definitely not a one-man army", James told reporters Friday in response to a question about being responsible for Casey's firing. The Bulls swept Miami in the regular season and destroyed them in Game 1 of that series.

Zidane's men got their fifth goal of the night 15 minutes from time when Sergi Gomez turned in a low Asensio cross past his own goalkeeper.

"He was a confident kid then when I watched him at Shaker".

Zizic is the lone player from last summer's blockbuster trade that might play in the series. "But that was definitely one of the major points that he brought up when getting me here".

Cleveland took care of Boston in five games past year, going 3-0 at TD Garden. Clarkson, Hill, and Hood, all acquired at the deadline, combined for 44 points.

In this year's conference semifinals, James averaged 34.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 11.3 assists. The highlights include two buzzer-beaters and a 45-point virtuoso performance in Game 7 against the Pacers. "Just trying to add onto it while I can".
