Eastern Conference Finals Preview: Can LeBron Continue His Magical Run?

Share

Let's take a look at how the Celtics have been another playoff victim (alongside the Toronto Raptors) of LeBron James.

"I haven't reflected on it", James said Friday when asked if he's looked back on his current Finals run. I'm super excited. You can't tell by my face. It's been quite the roller coast which leads to the notion that things may not be smooth sailing for the Cavs moving forward regardless of their recent sweep of the one seed. "He's been a confident kid then when I watched him at Shaker (Shaker Heights, an eastern suburb of Cleveland), he's a confident player now".

The Boston Celtics have been mining possibility out of improbable odds throughout the 2017-2018 season.

But here they are, getting ready for Game 1 Sunday afternoon in TD Garden, where the Green Machine is a flawless 7-0 in the postseason after a seven-game playoff series win over the Milwaukee Bucks, then a 4-1 series victory over the favored Philadelphia 76ers. With the Heat down 3-2 in the series, James scored 45 points on 19 of 26 shooting and added 15 rebounds as Miami forced a Game 7 and went on to win consecutive titles. If Horford shuts down Love on defense and continues to make all the right plays that make him Boston's best player, then Cleveland looks more like the team that was outscored by IN than the one that steamrolled Toronto. "You work all season to earn the trust of your teammates and coaching staff for moments like this, whether it's finding Al on the lob or a layup". It's just a sports town. I don't really see that they're lacking at any position. He also mentioned Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward being out has increased the narrative around Stevens and the Celtics.

"I think they are one of the most well-coached teams in our league", he said. "It's just, physically, he is far more superior than anybody that's on the floor", said Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown, who will be tasked with defending James as much as anyone. Joel Embiid (22.9 points, 11 rebounds) made his first All-Star team and seemed worth every bit of the USD148 million, five-year extension he signed before the season. "He can put guys into positions to succeed and get the most out of however has been in their lineup". Cleveland became the first team in league history to win two road games in the same series by at least 30 points, and it also became the first franchise to never trail on the road in a playoff series.

Even if James gets going, however, Hayward has the utmost confidence in his team.

Poof, both of them gone - Hayward after about five minutes of his first game in Green, in Cleveland, of all places. I get it with the Kyrie thing. James, throughout his career, has thrived with four shooters as his supporting cast, and as the team's sixth man, it's nearly a must that Green is respected from deep.

"They've got a couple", he said.

Boston rookie Jayson Tatum and Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue are cousins. The Warriors have had the upper hand, with two championships to one, and six victories to two in the regular season games since 2015. In the first round, Celtics fans taunted Milwaukee guard Eric Bledsoe with chants of "Who Is Bledsoe?" after he unwisely made a comment about Celtics playoff phenom Terry Rozier. We understand he's gonna make some insane plays. "He's gotten better and better".

Sometimes in life, you get smacked with reality so hard that it leaves you brooding and deep in thought about what just happened.

The reason attacking LeBron on defense is so critically important is that James has thrived this season on resting during games. They've been elite in Boston, winning all seven games there with an 8.3 net rating. Cleveland's current roster only faced the Celtics once.
