Cavaliers fall to Celtics, 107-94, trail East finals 0-2

LeBron James Cavs

Game 3 will take place on Saturday with the series moving to Cleveland and Boston holding a 2-0 lead.

This instinct to protect has been in Smart's DNA since childhood.

Early on, it seemed as if this night would belong to James and the Cavaliers. Some nights not being to be able to eat. "But I don't think it - it didn't affect my game after that".

"I guess if you're older, you've got more experience", said Cavs' coach Tyronn Lue. Obviously incidental, his shoulder hit me right square in my jaw so just had to go back and make sure everything was fine. I never had a spring break.

Asked in the locker room by ESPN after the game if his head was OK, James nodded solemnly and said, "I'm OK".

Horford said that, if anything, Smith's infraction only sharpened the Celtics' focus.

Saying "we all believe" that Smart is going to make his shots is a bit of a stretch.

'Last Man Standing' renewed by Fox after being canceled by ABC
We can bring literally 8 million of the most passionate and appreciative fans to a big new network - and a big new Friday night. Also, Last Man Standing is easier for new viewers to follow than Brooklyn Nine-Nine's serialized comedy.

LeBron James did bounce back in Game 2 and played exceptionally well but it wasn't good enough to get the Cavs over the line as they ended up on the losing side with a 107-94 scoreline. "We gotta be tougher mentally and physically".

The Sixers know that while their current group of players is remarkable, it's missing one more piece that will elevate them to the next level.

From their seats inside the TD Garden Arena, Ted and Kimberly Williams did not marvel. We're seeing that. They're being physical. Many years ago inside a Flower Mound, Texas, high school gymnasium, they watched the kid collect floor burns like loose change and play an unselfish brand that converted a football-crazed community into Smart disciples. Cleveland used that not just to hold Toronto's offense down, as it's easier for them to avoid their frequent communication errors when they aren't forced to move on defense and are able to set into their scheme, but also to propel their own offense through quickly turning around because they weren't on the back foot.

Although the Williamses reside in Leonard, Texas, the couple became fans and made weekly 60-mile trips to watch Smart him play.

With the series shifting to OH on Saturday for Game 3, the Celtics road to an 18th championship banner is only going to get more hard. "And I was hooked at that point".

Or LeBron James, who turned 33 in December and proceeded to suit up in all 82 regular season games for the first time in his 15-year career; he's now enduring perhaps his most statistically impressive and stunningly dominant playoff run to date. The unselfishness remains as one of Smart's best qualities - especially when he sacrifices himself on the sideline.

"It was a good call", Smith said.
