National Basketball Association won't discipline Smith for shove

National Basketball Association won't discipline Smith for shove

Al Horford was stellar as well.

Unhappy with Game 1's outcome and his 0-5 performance from beyond the arc, LeBron got to the TD Garden around 10 a.m. to work on his outside shot. The Celtics have never blown a 2-0 series lead in the playoffs. "We're just trying to get the win". Unfortunately for Cleveland, half of his points were in the first quarter. "If we win, that's all that matters".

Smart performed as a tone-setter, finishing with an all-around line of 11 points, nine assists, five rebounds and four steals. James torched Boston for 21 first-quarter points Tuesday and finished with 42. "I think I'll be fine". "Every night I'd just go to sleep and cry myself to sleep because I knew the pain my mom and family was going through".

With this outcome, this is now the second time that the Celtics have held the Cavs to under 100, and they are doing it without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, as well. The majority of Cleveland's points unsurprisingly came from James and Kevin Love, but even a triple-double from James and double-double from Love wasn't enough to fuel the Cavs. Only three Cleveland players had double-figure point totals; Tristan Thompson had eight. LeBron James barely got any help last night. That is something that the Cleveland Cavaliers could use on their bench against Boston. The starting backcourt duo of George Hill and J.R. Smith combined for a pathetic output of three points on 1-for-11 shooting, while Rodney Hood continued to disappoint Cavs faithful with a paltry two-point contribution in 11 minutes on the floor.

Tempers flared with 3:49 to play with Boston leading 97-89. It was, without question, a dirty play, one which prompted Celtics guard Marcus Smart to rush over and let Smith know that such moves would not be appreciated. Smith shoved Smart and the pair had to be separated.

The Celtics used a balanced attack as a half dozen players reached double figures. The Celtics turned it over just six times. But if the Irving and LeBron James duo appeared to be broken, there is a defense in there, a defense of the desire to sustain a version of these Cavs at all costs.What you are jealous of in Boston right now isn't that they have Irving. The Celtics' series-clinching victory marked the end of James' first stint with the Cavs. "His shoulder hit me square in the jaw".

Paul Pierce was on the phone talking about his 2010 Celtics and the second-round series against Cleveland.

Early on, it seemed as if this night would belong to James and the Cavaliers.

It's the kind of toughness that has always run deep in the Smart family.

"I hope the Celtics make it to The Finals", Pierce needled, "because I don't want to go to Cleveland".

"We've got each other's backs, and that's it".

It was then that the 18,000 fans in attendance may have made history when they unleashed an R-rated chant at Smith. Things were looking good for the Celtics, but the Cavaliers certainly weren't out of the game, especially with LeBron James on their side. Wade finished with 16.6 points in the playoffs. That is the most in National Basketball Association postseason history. You just can't allow that to keep happening. "We know that. It's like a bully; you keep letting a bully pick on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you stand up". "And that's what I tried to do".
