Charles Barkley Delivers Stern Warning to LeBron and Cavs About Celtics

Charles Barkley Delivers Stern Warning to LeBron and Cavs About Celtics

"It's a team effort", Morris said of Boston's defensive strategy after Game 1.

"LeBron, we're coming to get you", Ortiz said in an Instagram video. Even if it is just for brief stretches, the Celtics know how they need to disrupt James to take control of the game.

"That's a good question".

Before the series started Morris said that he believed he was the best defender on Lebron James outside of Kawhi Leonard. "We had a few rotations that we were a little late on". We've got to be more decisive.

Aron Baynes is flourishing as one of the old hands on a Boston Celtics squad full of young guns.

Then James detailed how Celtics player Jayson Tatum threw the ball to Morris, who made a three-pointer.

But chances are LeBron will not be much, much better in Game 2.

"You saw that one possession where he swung it to me, I hit Channing [Frye], Channing swung it to him, he pump-faked Myles Turner, looked off Paul George, and laid it up".

Korver, Smith and Hill scored a combined 14 points for the game, Love was outplayed by Baynes and Horford while Morris lived up to his pre-game talk of his ability to defend James. In the following six Game 2s, he upped his shooting percentage to 41.2 percent.

There are some other team-specific reasons why James would be an ideal offseason signing for the upstart 76ers. LeBron's leadership will get the Cavaliers off to a better start than they had in the series opener. "It's another great challenge, another great opportunity to experience something for this team".


"Whenever we've needed him to step up offensively, he has done that".

The former Red Sox slugger sat courtside with Celtics' co-owner Wyc Grousbeck for the Boston's Game 2 matchup against the Cavaliers.

With Jordan Clarkson, Rodney Hood, Jeff Green and Tristan Thompson having made their appearances off the bench, the Cleveland Cavaliers have settled on a nine-man rotation in the postseason.

Mentioned as a player who could be elevated into the starting lineup for Game 2, Thompson is focused more on bringing the physicality and hustle rather than when his name is called to play.

Jaylen Brown led all scorers with 23 points, shooting 9-of-16 from the field and an elite 3-of-5 from downtown.

Thompson's re-emergence in the starting five would be just another peak in his drastically up-and-down playoffs.

The Boston Celtics executed their game plan perfectly in game 1, but the Cavaliers will have a response in game 2. No doubt this will be a significantly closer game, but the Celtics deserve to be favorites, and if they win will likely do it by more than a solitary point.

James is not going to be in the 15-point range again.

The Cavaliers were not as good from long-range. It was just one game. Three of those open looks were taken by LeBron. But if the Celtics can keep getting a body on their quality shooters, and give their questionable ones free space to keep launching bricks, maybe those struggles from downtown will continue for the Cavaliers.

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. It probably wouldn't be a great seller, but crazier things have happened.
