Celtics humble Cavaliers in National Basketball Association playoff series opener

Isola: LeBron James' playoff dominance shows he shouldn't consider playing out West

But both teams are vastly different these days and even without the services of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, they have proven their postseason mettle through the first two rounds.

Jaylen Brown scored 23 points and Al Horford added 20 to power the Boston Celtics over Cleveland 108-83 Sunday, humbling LeBron James and his Cavaliers teammates in their National Basketball Association playoff series opener. He was 7 for 17 (41 %) in Cleveland's first round Game 1 loss and was a brutal 12 for 30 in Game 1 of the second round, being carried by Cleveland's supporting cast to a win in Toronto.

James made just five of 16 shots in Game 1 against Boston, finishing with 15 points. That sparks conversation of who are the top Celtics celebrity fans.

"(James) had a bad game, along with a lot of other guys who had a bad game.

It was a poor scoring night for the Cavs with J.R Smith, George Hill and Kyle Korver scoring just 14 points between them. The Cavs lost the series opener to the Pacers, 98-80. "So I just mean he's going to approach this game as one that he's going to have to lead and bounce back". Korver struggled just as badly, going 2-for-6 from the floor, 1-of-5 from three-point range and adding five boards and a blocked shot.

Erdogan's main rival in the presidential race is Muharrem Ince of the Republican People's Party. He added that Turkey had never abandoned its goal of European Union membership.

Marcus Morris had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Boston and Jayson Tatum added 16 while Brown had eight rebounds and Terry Rozier contributed eight points and seven assists. His only misses were on two of the four three-point shots he attempted. "When he thought he had driving lanes, they made him kick it out to other shooters".

Here's hoping they come out much more energized and with a better plan to shut down the Celtics.

In a playoffs filled with ups and downs for LeBron James & the Cleveland Cavaliers, they're probably at their lowest, following a beatdown at the hands of the Boston Celtics, and meme makers aren't feeling sorry for them.

The Celtics seized the lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals, with the victor to face either season wins leader Houston or defending champion Golden State in the NBA Finals.

Boston doesn't dig deep into its bench and, aside from some garbage time minutes, that was the case again on Sunday.
