Boston Celtics: Marcus Morris shows up when it matters most

Boston Celtics: Marcus Morris shows up when it matters most

"I mentioned after the game, just letting a few of their guys get open looks and get a good feel and they've been playing extremely well throughout these playoffs", he added. Marcus Morris made life hard for James, but it was more than just the defense on him. James had to revert on jump shots for much of the game, barring a couple of layups he completed primarily via cuts to the basket. "Other than that, James most recently faced an 0-2 deficit in the second round against the Celtics in 2008, when James" Cavaliers lost Game 2, 89-73, and ultimately lost the series in seven games. Lebron was held to 15 points on 5-16 shooting, failed to make a shot beyond the arc, and had seven turnovers on the way to a Celtics drubbing over the Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-83.

The Celtics showed James several different looks throughout the game, switching as many as five different players on him. They are 18-9-1 ATS and 20-8 SU after a win by 10 or more.

According to a report from Joe Vardon of, James is just six points shy of becoming the only player in National Basketball Association history to record 1,000 points against a single team in the playoffs. "That's what I did pick up", Morris said, bluntly.

The Boston Celtics will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 2 of their Eastern Conference Final playoff series on Tuesday night in Boston. It is surprising to see the Cavaliers outclassed when they have LeBron James - one of the greatest players to have ever graced the courts. Not only did he manage to curb the influence of LeBron, but he was actually the better player out of the two. We have another opportunity to be better (on) Tuesday.

Thompson has averaged 5.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game this postseason. "Can't rely on what you did in previous series".

The Raptors let rookie forward OG Anunoby guard James for the bulk of their four-game series and, though Anunoby is strong at the point-of-attack and athletic himself, his inexperience led to a couple of lowlights.

But in Japan , they take public transport far more seriously - as shown by a weird recent incident. Japan prizes itself on punctuality.

Aren't the best of the lot like that-if not the majority of them? But Boston made the first three baskets in the fourth and, after running off nine in a row to make it 96-68 with 7:09 left, the Cavs conceded. "Obviously understand what's at stake, and keep going".

Although it's just one loss for the Cavs, it's definitely concerning.

The current group of Boston players, the ones that will attempt to stop the Cavs' run of dominance in the Eastern Conference finals, can largely be traced back to James.

The Cleveland Cavaliers struggled to shoot the ball against the Boston Celtics throughout Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on Sunday afternoon, but those offensive lulls compounded into defensive issues.

Tonight's action is scheduled to start at 1.30pm BST and is available to watch on BT Sport 2.
