Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue contemplating starting Tristan Thompson for Game 2


Likewise, former Cavs GM David Griffin recently told Bill Simmons that he once saw James tell a Toronto Raptors player what play the Raptors were supposed to be running. I imagine it'll be a lot like Game 2 against Indiana. "On both ends of the floor, we didn't play so great".

But it is just the first game.

But he was clear that his concern level down being 1-0 was "zero". "I've been down before in the postseason".

LeBron James had a rule for Kyrie Irving when he was the Cavaliers' point guard, and George Hill broke it in Game 1 against the Celtics.

Though James will surely put in a much better performance, it's hard to go past Boston at the -1.0 point line offered by oddsmakers after their 25 point victory in Game 1.

Packers not expected to sign WR Dez Bryant
Dez Bryant most infamous catch in his entire career was actually a non-catch that has been argued for years now. You partner him up with Jimmy Graham and Aaron Rodgers, and I think that offense can put up a lot of points.

Boston's ball movement - This was a feature of the Celtics game in Game 1.

While the Cavs played Jose Calderon at the start of the postseason, they started to go away from him with the athleticism of their opponents presenting a challenge for them.

"I've got a great sense of the way they played me [Sunday] and how I'll play going into Game 2", James said. Players like Marcus Morris and Al Horford can be used in numerous ways for plenty of scenarios.

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. He also recorded seven turnovers to nine assists, and the Cavs were down by more than 20 points for much of the game.

James has always been fond of using his preternatural gift for passing and if he continues to do so with the Philadelphia 76ers, then his teammates will see their scoring numbers increase significantly. Miami won the series in five.

Typically, when the US punishes individuals with sanctions, it prohibits Americans or USA companies from doing business with them. Iranian media initially reported the choice based mostly on reviews within the worldwide media.

Double-teamed and hammered with countless switches that often left LeBron faced with someone new, James connected on just five of his 16 field goal attempts, and was reduced to folded arms and watching a garbage time fourth quarter from the Cleveland bench.

Thompson, who played well and had eight points and 11 rebounds in less than 21 minutes in the opener, issued a bit of a warning on behalf of James, saying, "Usually when LeBron has these kind of games, the next game he does something legendary".

Horford, whose performances are nearly dissected on a nightly basis because of his high-priced contract, is enjoying the best postseason of his career, averaging 17.2 points and 8.3 rebounds, while shooting 59.3 percent from the floor. Equally notable, in the six Game 2s he's lost when facing an 0-1 deficit, he's averaged 23.8.

The Celtics and Cavaliers will tip-off game two in Boston on Tuesday. The biggest thing to mention about their defense was illustrated very well in Game 1 yesterday. Since returning to Cleveland, he's 3-2.

Coach Tyronn Lue hinted strongly Monday that Thompson could be back in the starting lineup for Game 2, noting his history of success defending Celtics All-Star Al Horford.
