There was still a Game 7 to be played in Miami, but the series was already over. While the Cavs shot 36-percent from the field and 15.4-percent from beyond the arc, the Celtics show 51.2-percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three-point land. The Celtics led by as many as 29 en route to a 108-83 win.
It would be solid night for most National Basketball Association players, but was pedestrian by the super-human standard that LeBron has set for himself this postseason, at times single-handedly carrying the Cavs to victories. Equally notable, in the six Game 2s he's lost when facing an 0-1 deficit, he's averaged 23.8. "I didn't go to college, so it's not March Madness". He blocked two shots but also made seven turnovers.
Love said Monday he thought the Cavs "were a little soft" in the first half defensively, letting the Celtics get open looks and a good feel for the game early.
James continued his impressive levels of production against the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, posting 34.0 points (on a true shooting percentage of 57.9), 8.3 rebounds, 11.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 block per game.
That's just the fourth time all season LeBron has been held to 15 points or less (that's counting the last game of the regular season in which he scored 10 points in 10 minutes then sat the rest of the way), and it was far-and-away the least productive game of a postseason that he has thoroughly dominated.
Coach Brad Stevens raised that point about his wise mix of veterans and youngsters this season. "As long as we continue to get the ball moving and guys feeling good rhythm".
Baynes, the 31-year-old Queenslander, has been using the experience he gleaned from being part of the 2014 San Antonio Spurs' championship-winning team to help guide an injury-ravaged Celtics squad relying on the talented but inexperienced Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier. Marcus Morris made life hard for James, but it was more than just the defense on him. Boston frequently sent a double team when he got the ball in the post. James' intelligence, athleticism, midrange game and ability to destroy teams around the rim make him seemingly unstoppable.
"I think as a team, 1 through 5, we gotta all play tougher", Thompson said. They're capable of switching nearly anything, their rotations are pristine, and they didn't give up a lot of clean looks, but Cleveland still nevertheless needs to be better. He has started just 22 times this year. I've been down 0-2. Asked what happened during that decisive stretch, James took the question at face value.
When he was finished James leaned back in his chair, spread his arms and wryly said, "There you go".
