Cavs rout Celtics in Game 1

After the game, the Celtics seemed all-too-aware of what James was trying to do. The diminutive guard established himself as one of the game's most risky offensive weapons this season, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists per game.

It was the Cavs 12th-straight playoff win dating back to last season. They are now 9-0 in the playoffs, chasing the Golden State Warriors at 10-0. The performance has to be encouraging for the Cavs, who will need to figure out how to maximize Love's minutes on the floor if they advance.

The 12 straight wins are tied for the second-longest playoff winning streak in National Basketball Association history (12 straight by Detroit from 1989-1990, San Antonio in 1999 and L.A. Lakers from 2000-2001) and just one shy of tying the NBA's longest playoff winning streak of 13 straight wins (L.A. Lakers from 1988-1989).

LeBron James offered a rather ominous comment after his Cleveland Cavaliers won the opener of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night.

The "best player in the world", LeBron James, scored 38 points, grabbed nine rebounds and had seven assists in 42 minutes. Thompson set a new playoff career high. The Cavs will no doubt go out of their way, probably trading some of Love's points for Irving.

"We put in a lot of work", James said. Nobody is better than James at forcing defenses to make an impossible decision, and nobody is harder to deceive with defensive coverages.

For Boston things could not have gone worst, they came out slow and saw themselves in a hole that was insurmountable.

To begin the second quarter, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue switched his normal rotation.

"They put you in a bad matchup nearly every time down the floor", Stevens said, "and they're great at it. LeBron is great at finding the matchup he wants". Just as you get older, you gain more experiences, you see more things.

Cleveland trapped Isaiah Thomas and forced a turnover on the very first play of the game, setting in motion how the remainder of the game played out. By that point, James had already amassed 23 points and had either scored or assisted on 32 of Cleveland's first half points.

"He's playing at a high level right now and that's the reason why we're riding him so much", Lue said.

Then, James scored the Cavaliers' final eight points of the half, twice on jumpers after posting up on the left low block, and then, after knocking down a pair of free throws and missing a layup, he finished off a drive with a basket in the waning seconds of the quarter. And on this Cavs team, one that has been among the NBA's leaders in made 3's all season, James has made team after team after team pay. As a team, the Celtics shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 38 from the three-point line, but none of that matters as the Celtics came out flat and simply got steamrolled by the Cavaliers.

Whether LeBron was bullying Marcus Smart or Isaiah Thomas, or literally disrespecting Kelly Olynyk on the perimeter by turning his back toward him, James did what he wanted, when he wanted.

Cleveland Cavaliers showed not sign of rust after their ten-day break, in overpowering Boston Celtics in Game One of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals. It was the seventh NBA Finals appearance of James' career, but he had only hoisted the Larry O'Brien Trophy twice. Totals 41-88 10-18 104.
