Cleveland Cavaliers

Cavaliers 117, Celtics 104 (Cleveland leads 1-0)

Going into tonight, LeBron James had a 1-10 record in Game 1 on the road. This time, he would not be denied.

The King was aggressive from the start, dropping 15 points on 7/8 from the field in the 1st quarter alone.

And he didn’t stop there, finishing with 38 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists on 14/24. That’s just not fair.

LeBron has now dropped 30+ in seven straight postseason games. He got help from Kevin Love in this one: 32 points and 12 rebounds.

As a team, Cleveland shot 48% and forced 14 turnovers. They have yet to lose in the 2017 playoffs.

For the Celtics, Isaiah Thomas had 17 points and 10 assists on 7/19.

Game 2 is Friday.
