    Default Vs. Celtics GAME ONE THREAD

    So much hype, really looking forward to this game.

    Keys for Cleveland:
    1) Will King James take the reigns or will his focus on being getting the team going? Regardless, we need him to lead the charge one way or the other.
    2) Kevin Love, how much of an impact will he play? If he is productive I feel we will win
    3) Containing Isiah Thomas. Coming off the bench, he could be very problematic for us. I wonder if they'll play Shumpert on him? Defensive matchups will be interesting once the bench gets worked in.

    Keys for Boston:
    1) DEFENSE. They are a defensively responsible team, it's their bread and butter. They need to limit the Cavs chances.
    2) Getting the bench going: The Celtics do not have a lot of talent, comparatively speaking to the Cavs, so I think that watching Steven's rotations and how he chooses to use his guys will be interesting.
    3) Contain the Big 3. Easier said than done, but having to worry about 3 different game-changers will give Stevens stress this entire season.

    Down 5 after the 1st Q. Boston is bringing a bit more energy to the floor, they're playing like they want to smack us in the mouth. I hope the Cavs turn it up a bit to start Q2...

    Boston shooting 56%, their bench with 16 points in the first Q...

    I feel eerie about my keys to the game, I know it's the first quarter but I'm not usually on the mark lol.

    Lets see some defense how about? And they need to share the love a bit more, make that extra pass, everyone other than JR seems to be throwing up stones.

    Kyrie Irving going HAM in his first career playoff game. He has been awesome to watch.

    LBJ not his typical game we win by 13. that's nice
    no other team we had the first time around could overcome that.

    Yeah that's huge....and I think exactly what he wanted when he left Miami...and possibly the biggest reason why he left. Down there he would have had to shoulder the bulk of the burden, while he waited for Wade to come off his inevitable injury. He's got some serious help with these boys.

    They played hard today. Let's light these fuckers up and get some rest! DRose is looking like DRose in spurts. Not Good!

    Chicago is going to be really tough after we dispatch these bums. I'm hoping I see better play inside from Mozgov in preparation for the bulls.

    Agree with you, Jaydog.... Mozgov is a difference-maker inside on D, and I saw he was smart on offense to play in the post and screen his man or get out of the way when James was coming to the hoop. Moz should probably play 30 minutes when we play the team from the West in the Finals.

    I'm NOT expecting CHI to be a real threat... and the Hawks have lost their luster. I'll be downright in SHOCK if we aren't battling in the Finals. The winner of the West should be a threat. (And maybe the Hawks, although I don't expect it to work out that way)

    For anyone even remotely concerned about the Cavs... we've been playing in 2nd & 3rd Gear against the Celts, 4th Gear for about 12 minutes in 3rd Quarter of Game 1. The Cavs have 2-3 more gears to shift up to. 3rd Gear w/ spurts of 4th Gear beats the Bulls & Hawks. If they ever hit 5th gear, that's when they beat good teams by 20+ pts.

    LeBron's won 2 trophies. The Cavs need to have some real fun out there to take the edge off "the playoffs" for all the newbies to it. CLE is going to be one hell of a tough 'out' ... it's going to take the moment feeling too big for them, for them to lose. Have some fun & that moment will never occur.

    I heard today that even if Love, Mozgov and Tristan want a lot of money, with the new cap, we can pay them & keep them.


    It's JR Smith that likely may need to sacrifice several million dollars to stay a Cavalier... and he should when push comes to shove. It's just way way more fun chasin' championships compared to playing in NY or for some team struggling to get anywhere.

    I'm pleasantly surprised....I guess I was expecting a loss. From the box score it looks like JR bounced back as well as KLove.

    I've got my broom ready for game 4, I honestly don't see how Boston can stop us the way we've been playing. We just have too much talent.

    How are the Cavs doing? I don't really follow basketball, and when I do I am a Knicks fan, but I would like to see the Cavs do well.
