James scored just 11 points and committed six turnovers in Game 2 on Sunday night, when the Celtics overcame a 21-point deficit in the third quarter to pull off an upset the odds makers in Las Vegas said was the biggest in the National Basketball Association playoffs over the past 20 years.
Kyrie Irving added 24 points and Kevin Love finished with 15 for the Cavs, who never trailed and led by as many as 39 points in one of their most dominating wins of the series. He got to the basket, got fouls. "So we got back together". "My adrenaline (was) still going at this point, so I'm pretty sure when I get home my body will probably hate me, but it's the magnitude of the moment and what's at stake, and I wasn't coming out". "In the case of occasional games where it's my job to be aggressive in all facets and keep us within the game and constantly stay in attack mode, we're quite a different team". We'll need all the help we can get if we hope to extend this series and put off the offseason. This was highlighted by his 42-point performance in Game 4, a contest where LeBron had four fouls in the first half for the first time in his career.
Turns out, he was just getting started.
Boston powered into a 29-19 first quarter lead and maintained their 10-point cushion through to half-time, leading 57-47 at the break.
Irving took over the game to take some of the pressure off of his teammate, James, and the Celtics couldn't stop anything Irving did.
No matter what, you can not count James and his team out of any series, as we learned a year ago.
"And honestly we didn't want IT to go down", Irving continued. "We needed everything tonight". LeBron joined the fray in the second half where Cleveland outscored Boston, 65-42. "We had really good athletes, quick guys that make things tough on people guarding him". We've made a lot of mistakes that you can't make at this stage.
Golden State hasn't faced a single iota of resistance along the way. "We had to be able to face adversity, look it in the face, and say, 'You're not going to win today'". He hit a driving layup with less than two minutes left in the third quarter, but stepped on one of Terry Rozier's feet. On a driving layup, Irving crumpled to the court, grabbing his ankle in pain.
"I've twisted my ankle so many times on plays like that", Irving said. "It's about the magnitude of the game and what's at stake".
James, determined to bounce back after a poor 11-point haul in Game 3, then steadied the Cleveland nerves in the fourth quarter, bringing the Cavaliers home for the win as Boston's courageous effort came up short.
"He's just taking what the defense is giving him in the playoffs", Lue said.
