James, Love help Cavs rout Celtics 117-104 in Game 1

Back to Boston: LeBron, Celtics meet again in postseason

But that didn't stop Wizards guard Bradley Beal from opining that the Cavaliers - the same Cavaliers who are tearing through the Eastern Conference playoffs to the tune of nine wins in nine outings with an average point differential of 10 points per game - were fortunate to dodge them.

LeBron James scored 38 points against Boston in Game 1, but he said he wasn't playing his best.

Cleveland's LeBron James has been named in the All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, and Houston's James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season. Kyrie Irving tallied just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting as Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue used a different second unit to start the second quarter with LeBron James resting. Love opened up the floor for James, burying outside jumpers and forcing Boston to leave defenders one-on-one with James.

But if the Celtics are going to pick themselves up, it must start with All-Star Isaiah Thomas, who scored 17 points, but had to work for every single one just to finish 7 for 19 from the field.

"They hit us first".

There were a number of times when Love simply drifted to the corner and waited for a pass that often didn't come, and he sometimes disappeared from games if he didn't get involved in the offense early on. "They were more physical", Thomas said.

It was a performance reminiscent of the 6-foot-10 power forward's big-number days with the Minnesota Timberwolves, when he was the first option on offense and often the second and third as well. "It's one game. They took care of business, and we've just got to take care of business Game 2". Olynyk scored two points in the final minute and had three rebounds Wednesday. Boston was 2 for 16 and shot 35 percent overall in the first half. Here's everything you need to know including Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 2 live stream with the Watch TNT app and more.

Celtics: Finished with 14 turnovers, and were outrebounded 32-27.

Or maybe Bill Murray can come help.

"Amazing, but he's better than when I first got into the league", Celtics fourth-year coach Brad Stevens said. "Obviously he got comfortable with what we were doing on the defensive end, and he had his way".
