LeBron James reacts against the Boston Celtics during their game one defeat

The Celtics opened up the East Finals with a convincing, 108-83, Game 1 win on Sunday afternoon before welcoming the Cavs back to the TD Garden for Tuesday night's matchup.

National Basketball Association teams that win the first two games of a best-of-seven series have gone on to win their series 95 percent of the time. They're gooning the game up, and we have to do the same thing.

"You know, that was big for us", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said of James' setback.

The Celtics and Cavs would exchange blows throughout the second.

Boston pushed their lead to double-digits early in the fourth quarter. While making a play on the ball in the first half, Tatum collided with LeBron James and hit him in the face with his shoulder.

But James would later return to the floor with 1:57 left in the second, as the Cavs would go up, 55-48, heading into halftime.

Rozier and the Celtics came out to play the third with true goal.

Rozier took over in the third quarter, scoring 14 points in the frame (his playoff career high for a single quarter), and helping the Celtics outscore the Cavs 36-22 overall, which swung the game in Boston's favor. Cleveland also committed 15 turnovers to just six for the Celtics.

But despite all of the work from LeBron, the Cavaliers weren't able to extend much of a lead. But Smith's foul on Horford ignited the soft-spoken center, who would score the game's next eight points to put things essentially out of reach.

Smith was assessed a flagrant foul and both received technical fouls. After watching it you might be surprised that it didn't end any worse for either Horford or Smith.

When asked in the postgame press conference, Al Horford defended Boston's approach.

"I think we just have a group of guys that really believe in each other", Horford said. He started off the first quarter scoring 21 of the team's 27 points on 8-of-13 shooting and 4-of-7 on long-distance 3s.

The Celtics impressively held the Cavaliers to 39 second-half points as they would go onto win Game 2, 107-94. A Smart 3-pointer put Boston up 72-71 with 4:29 on the clock before Brown fed Rozier for a slam and a deafening crowd response with 4:06 to play. Cavs team-mate Kevin Love added 22 points and 15 boards.

Celtics Went 10 of 31 from the 3-point line.

The Cavaliers actually out-shot Boston, 46 percent to 43 percent, with each team canning 10 triples.
