Lue, Cavaliers plot Horford-proof Game 2 plan

The Boston Celtics will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 2 of their Eastern Conference Final playoff series on Tuesday night in Boston.

Guard LeBron James, and keep the four-time NBA MVP from running the Celtics out of their own gym in the Eastern Conference finals for the second year in a row.

They trailed 36-18 after the first quarter, were down by 26 at the half, and lost Game 1...

Jaylen Brown top scored for them with 23 points, Al Horford dropped in 20, and Jayson Tatum added 16.

With injured stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving on the bench in street clothes, the Celtics continued their stunning run this season with what may have been the most surprising turn of events yet. Al Horford is the lynchpin of the operation with his ability to guard one through five, giving Boston a unique advantage.

Horford made his first seven shots and scored 10, including eight straight, during the 17-0 run that turned a three-point deficit into a 21-7 lead.

According to a report from Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, James is just six points shy of becoming the only player in National Basketball Association history to record 1,000 points against a single team in the playoffs. Cleveland got back with a Game Three 121-99 rout of Boston on February 11 at Boston's TD Garden. We know we have to play better.

Data compiled by Second Spectrum also showed only Draymond Green has forced LeBron to show with a lower percentage from the field than Morris since the 2013-14 season.

It was a disaster with the Celtics never headed after jumping to a 29-9 lead in the first quarter. Realistically, keeping LeBron below 30 points and ten assists would be considered a win, so to keep him to 31.3% shooting and a almost identical assist to turnover ratio while dropping 21 efficient points of his own was an unbelievable effort. The defense was just as good as it has been all year, if not better.

Iraq's complex electoral system means that the final make-up of the 329 seat parliament is still far from decided. It may be Abadi, Reuters reports, who has signaled a willingness to work with Sadr to form a working government.

"I have zero level of concern at this stage", the forward said after an uncharacteristically off-key display that saw him finish with just 15 points while committing seven turnovers. "Can't take plays off against really good players". "He's going to approach this game as one where he's going to have to lead and bounce back".

Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thomspon nailed down the game in relatively few words.

Love said he thought the Cavs were a "little soft" in the first half in Game 1.

"We played great in Game 1, and then they came out and just jumped on us [in Game 2]", Stevens recalled of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. In fact, most people didn't think that the Celtics would make it this far, but they continue to surprise people.

"It's definitely something we have to weigh", Lue said.

There are some other team-specific reasons why James would be an ideal offseason signing for the upstart 76ers.

There are small adjustments to be made, but the Cavaliers also have the option of breaking out a line-up change that could rob Boston of some of their switchability. "In the pick and rolls, they were able to get downhill a lot, so we've got to clean that up".

And judging the way that the Celtics beat up on the Cavs in Game 1, some would argue that Auerbach's spirit was with them on Sunday, too. "As role players, we've got to play our role".
