Cavaliers vs. Celtics: Game 2 Prediction, NBA Playoff Odds

Cavs vs. Celtics: LeBron shows off incredible memory with answer to postgame question Terry Rozier: Boston Celtics can get 'a lot better' defensively, according to Brad Stevens

Coming into the playoffs, Marcus Morris was separating himself as a primary scorer because of all the injuries for the Boston Celtics.

Morris boasted he was the best defender to guard James and led the hustling work that contained the 33-year-old Cleveland superstar, who has more career playoff appearances than the entire Celtics roster combined.

Scroll down to check out some of the instant reactions to the Game 1 blowout.

The Celtics secured another hard-fought victory Sunday afternoon against the Cavaliers, routing the defending Eastern Conference champions by 25 points.

The Celtics came out fighting against the Cavaliers from word go in Game 1 and Cleveland just couldn't cope all four quarters.

Perhaps a little bit of extra practice will get James and the Cavs back to their winning ways.

Boston sold 51% of shots from the game and gave the grandmaster's 27 assists.

"Defending LeBron James 101" has become a master class, and already the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors have flunked out of the National Basketball Association playoffs because they could not find a successful and consistent plan against the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar.

Cleveland is 58-36 straight up (SU), but they struggle covering the spread (36-56-2 against the spread (ATS)). After surviving the testy Milwaukee Bucks in seven games they quickly dispatched the much-hyped Philadelphia 76ers in five.

Cleveland coach, Tyronn Lue, was not happy with his team's lack of energy and competitiveness in game 1.

And perhaps it's in our best interest if we assume the same. After all, it's not as if they played poorly and lost a close game; they played poorly and were blown out.

In this case maybe less familiarity with the monstrosity of the task is better, and best filled by a younger player, or in the case of Ojeleye, a rookie.

And the chief credit goes to Brad Stevens, the innovative coach of the Boston Celtics. It was Horford's fifth 20-point outing of the playoffs and the second time he has made more than 80 percent of his shots with at least 10 attempts. The Cavs made only 15 percent of their treys - 4 for 26. He might need a few more to stop a Celtics team that grew under him - and often because of him.

"Game 1 has always been a feel-out game for me", James told media men during the usual post-game press conference. The Celtics jumped out to an early lead in the game and did not look back. He projected games on his flat screen, pressing the rewind button once, twice, then three times just to figure out what, if anything, he could take from the previous two playoff teams that had been vanquished by the King. James had 15 points, six rebounds and six assists on 5-of-15 shooting-not unlike his 15-7-9 on 5-of-16 shooting against Boston on Sunday.

However, Marcus Morris from the Celtics does not believe that James had a bad night.

The Cavs just don't have answers. Furthermore, the fifth-ranked offense of the Cavaliers (offensive efficiency of 110.8) will go head-to-head against the second-ranked defense of the Celtics (defensive efficiency of 102.6). As a result, forward Kyle Korver will move to the bench as Thompson joins LeBron James, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and George Hill in Cleveland's starting five.

Like the Boston Celtics dug past their regular rotation when the time was right this postseason, such as starting Semi Ojeleye against the Milwaukee Bucks to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Cavaliers must use their depth.
