LeBron James: I'm just trying to make plays for Cleveland Cavaliers

20 May 2017, 10:13 | Andy Ferguson

And on this Cavs team, one that has been among the NBA's leaders in made 3's all season, James has made team after team after team pay.

But it's hard to tell if the improved play in the second half was because they finally found their footing, or that Cleveland took its foot off the gas because the Cavs had such a huge lead. "We definitely didn't shoot the ball as well as we're capable of shooting it". "I know the guy that's going to start on me".

Better than 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists? It's a amusing thing to say about a player with obvious limitations, but his work ethic has helped him develop into someone that can impact the game in several ways. The Celtics have already through one game away with their poor play.

LeBron James, looking to advance to his seventh straight National Basketball Association finals, led Cavs with 38 points (15 in the fourth quarter), his seventh consecutive 30-point game.

James gave Boston the full LeBron Experience in Game 1. Both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving initiate the offense, and from there the team seeks out matchup advantages and the hot hand.

Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder led the Celtics with 21 points apiece.

George and Hayward fell well short of making any of the three All-NBA teams, which means they will not be eligible to get the "supermax" extensions from IN and Utah this summer and now will face more questions about their futures IN their respective cities.

Golden State's Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant were second-team choices, joined by Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Utah's Rudy Gobert and Boston's Isaiah Thomas. "Let's see if we can just keep this up".

"I felt OK last night", James said Thursday.

The Cavaliers rolled past the Celtics in Boston in Game 1 on Wednesday, and Smith said he expects the Celtics to play desperate at home Friday.

Smart and Thompson were called for a double foul on the play, but got tangled again a few minutes later.

The Celtics couldn't get anything working when they had the ball, held to just 35 percent from the field in the first half and 2 for 16 from beyond the arc.

The win was the Cavaliers' 12th in a row in the playoffs (one shy of matching the National Basketball Association record, set by the 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers), dating back to last year's finals. The good news is that the Celtics have more talent that was not seen in that terrible first half. The Celtics' bench was a major weapon in the early rounds, and outscored Cleveland's 34-14.

The Celtics did not play anywhere near their capabilities in game one, and the Cavaliers will not be flawless all the time.
