How to Watch Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 2

It's time for the Cavaliers to make some adjustments

The Celtics survived an early pointscoring onslaught by LeBron James to defeat the Cavaliers 107-94 in Boston on Tuesday and take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

In the locker room, when informed what Lue had said, Brown gave a bemused smile.

"Gooning?" Morris asked. "That's a good word". That's what we've been doing all season.

I think the biggest thing is we're just trying to make it as hard as possible. They did it with tenacious defense and aggressive, yet smart, offense. The Cavaliers sagged in the second half, where they were outscored 59-39 by the Celtics.

The physicality inevitably got chippy, and players had to be separated on multiple occasions.

"I felt it was uncalled for", Horford, describing Smith's shove that catapulted him off the court, said.

The Celtics' Aron Baynes, who played under esteemed Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, says there are similarities between the two coaches. "Sometimes they don't know what's at stake when you're so young, you just play because you plat that way anyway". Marcus Morris got in Smith's face after Smith pushed Horford in the back to prevent a layup.

"Last year we came off of a grueling, seven-game series against Washington", Horford said. If they want to go about it, we can go. Nobody is gonna get thrown out of the games or anything like that.

J.R. Smith's buzzer-beating jumper had Cavaliers within 78-64 after three quarters, but a Tatum finger roll put the Boston lead over 20 at 85-64 with 10:52 remaining.

Here we are again, watching a surprising Celtics team continue to show the world they can compete with anybody, even the King himself. "We see that. They're being physical". He returned after missing less than two minutes of game time.

Post-game, Smart said Smith's foul was "a dirty shot". "I'm just happy he's on our side. We moved on to the next play way and we locked in after that". "I commend Smart for coming with that hard hat that he always has". So, now the focus shifts to Game 3 on Saturday in Cleveland. "We had some great shots we couldn't make and it snowballed from there".

"Just because we've had less experiences, we really don't dwell on that", he said. I would like to think that if they kept Kyrie and worked it out the same way Pop did with Aldridge during that same summer that Kyrie would contribute more than that and this conference finals would be a whole different story.

Whatever the case, it's time to take this Celtics team seriously if you haven't already.
