Celtics star calls out LeBron before Game 1 Video

NBA 2K18 Le Bron James Eastern Conference Finals

BOSTON, MA - FEBRUARY 11: LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers drives to the basket past Marcus Morris of the Boston Celtics during the first quarter of a game at TD Garden on February 11, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. I'm 6-9, 240. I think that's the ideal size to guard a guy like that who's probably like 6-9, 260. They dropped to fourth in the conference as the Philadelphia 76ers ran off 16 straight wins at the end of the season. Regardless of all these factors mentioned, this series will still be a fun one to watch. He tried to miss the second which would have run the clock down but it rattled in stopping time and allowing Philadelphia to try one more play.

According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN, Morris is one of the better defenders of LeBron, but his stats still aren't that great. "Circumstances are a little different now".

Celtics center Aron Baynes should have been called for a shooting foul when Sixers big man Embiid attempted a game-tying layup with 14.6 seconds remaining. But if the Celtics can make those baskets a little more hard, they might be able to get a few key stops.

Per usual, then, the Celtics will roll out their standard cast approach to covering James, who has averaged an NBA-leading 34.3 points along with nine assists per game in the postseason.

The Mothership's panel of "experts" were nearly unanimous in picking the Philadelphia 76ers over the Celtics in the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs. In order to advance to the Finals, the Celtics will need to prove they can win on the road, as they have only won one match-up on the road this post-season. "We just gotta take away the other guys and have a great mindset of mentally being locked in every possession", he said. All I know is the last three years, they have been the reason we haven't advanced.

The 33-year-old playmaker, whose dream came true in 2016 as he sparked the Cavaliers to ending Cleveland's 52-year pro sports title drought, is the maestro of a deep corps of role players led by forward Kevin Love, whose aggressive play has been ignited by a scoring spark.

"I think in the Toronto series, no disrespect to them, but watching film, it just looked very easy at times", Morris said. The Celtics are thin in their front court as is, and getting out-rebounded by the Cavaliers will not be ideal in this upcoming series. ". There was no help, I didn't see no physicality. But I think it starts with my body". "They was like, "Hood, that's not really a distraction" because of everything that they've been through this year", he said. "(Expletive), I think IN did a great job against Cleveland IN that series.

"The thing that I would say is that I always hoped we would get to the point where if things don't go our way, we're still extremely competitive because we have a kind of a foundation in place", said Stevens.

The Celtics acquired Morris from the Pistons this summer in a deal where the team sent out Avery Bradley. "So they really wanted me here, and not only because of that, just the toughness and things like that".

"I'm definitely not a one-man army", James told reporters Friday in response to a question about being responsible for Casey's firing. As Marcus Smart will log heavy minutes in the Celtics backcourt off the bench, Brown will likely be one of the long, versatile wings Celtics coach Brad Stevens tries to use to slow LeBron James. "Obviously guys been going down all year and it's like you never know who's going to down". Teams can open up cap space, trade for stars and generally do anything it takes if LeBron shows a semblance of interest.
