Cavs set National Basketball Association playoff record with 41-point halftime lead on Celtics

"He's not afraid. That's what you like the most about young guys". They are talking bold, and, as you'd expect, Thomas is the boldest. Kevin was dominant on the offensive end as well firing 4 three pointers and scoring 21 points to be a hot spark for the Cavs in the first half.

Isaiah Thomas is injured. They must also channel the energy the home fans at TD Garden will generate to manufacture points and defensive intensity that will be critical to countering the potent offensive explosions James and his running mate, All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, are prone to producing.

The Celtics played the second half without Isaiah Thomas, who had a strained right hip.

The Celtics, who lost the first two games of their first-round series with the Chicago Bulls at home, had won five straight at home since then before losing the opener of this National Basketball Association semi-final series. He was bad in this game, scoring just two points.

They managed to do that mainly because LeBron didn't want it bad enough, or really at all. Both have been even better in the playoffs, with the Cavs hitting 42.6 percent and Boston 37. He was pretty despondent not to be able to play.

The Boston Celtics looked entirely blown away in the Eastern Conference Finals Game.

Top MVP vote-getters announced • Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, Houston's James Harden and San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard are the top three for this season's MVP award, the league announced Friday.

"I felt OK last night", James said Thursday.

The game tipped off about 15 minutes after the three finalists for NBA MVP were announced, and James wasn't among them. They then had to go the full seven games to eliminate the Washington Wizards Monday in Boston. IT scored just 17 points.

Boston earned the No. 1 seed by finishing the regular season with the best record in the East. "We're not scared of Cleveland". I think, ultimately, they were terrific, we were poor. And while that might've been the case ... "When LeBron's playing at that level, other guys just have to be solid and we have a good chance to win". "We opened the moneyline at Cavs -255 and it's up to -265, with a ton of moneyline cash on the Cavaliers".

It was the biggest playoff win ever for the Cavaliers, who now have the luxury of hosting games three and four in Cleveland. "I said before that we had another level and (people) looked at me like I was insane", he added.
