Charles Barkley Delivers Stern Warning to LeBron and Cavs About Celtics

Charles Barkley Delivers Stern Warning to LeBron and Cavs About Celtics

James will not shrink from those moments, however, and he could show Simmons, Embiid and the other 76ers how to get things done when the games matter most.

However, Marcus Morris from the Celtics does not believe that James had a bad night. James had to revert on jump shots for much of the game, barring a couple of layups he completed primarily via cuts to the basket. "When I go check into the game, whether it's him or (Aron) Baynes I just try to run the floor, set pick-and-rolls and just try to work him on both ends so that hopefully by the second half his legs might be a little exhausted where he might not make that three that he makes in the first half".

Brad Stevens' team were able to stifle LeBron James, who finished with a 2018 playoff-low 15 points while also having seven turnovers.

LeBron James has eliminated the Celtics from the playoffs four times, and the first loss doesn't seem to worry him. The intention for both teams for how they wanted to beat the Cavaliers was very similar, take the shooters out of the game offensively, and get the defense on the back foot to slow down the Cleveland attack and fuel your own offense. If he can continue to hold James to what he did in game one and can add 20 points on the offensive side on efficient shooting, the Celtics will definitely have a chance to make their first National Basketball Association finals since 2010.

"I think as a team, 1 through 5, we've got to all play tougher", Thompson said.

The 2009-10 Boston Celtics were the last East squad to successfully vanquish a James-led squad, although their 2017-18 counterparts appear poised to follow suit after dominating James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 on Sunday.

LeBron James vs Marcus Morris - This is quite obviously the most important matchup of the game. LeBron's leadership will get the Cavaliers off to a better start than they had in the series opener. "We've got to be better". He is confident that the Celtics will continue to do well against James in Game 2 as they have a great strategy. It blew out Philadelphia by 16 points during the second-round-opener, but Philly responded in Game 2 and almost came away with a bounce-back win. The "Big Three" version of the Celtics, led by Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, had James and the Heat stuck in a 3-2 hole with Game 6 in Boston.

Beitar is second in the Israeli league with one game left, and has qualified for next season's Europa League.

While the Cavs played Jose Calderon at the start of the postseason, they started to go away from him with the athleticism of their opponents presenting a challenge for them.

Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals takes place Tuesday night in Boston. Ortiz, who once gave the Celtics center a huge assist on his wedding day in the Dominican Republic, also sent a message to LeBron James.

It's been the Summer of Scary Terry and if he can help guide the Celtics to the NBA Finals, we may even see his signature spaghetti and ranch sandwiches popping up at delis around town.
