Celts Take Out Lebron, Cavs 108-83 [VIDEO]
If game one of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals was a boxing match they would have stopped the fight after one round - the first quarter. The Celtics led the Cavs 36-18 and were on their way to a 108-83 victory.
The Celtics team offense was on display again. Jalen Brown with 23, Marcus Morris with 21, Al Horford with 20 and Jayson Tatum with 16.
The Celtics team defense was on display, too. The Cavs were held to 36% shooting. LeBron James scored just 15 points and was a minus-32 in 36 minutes of play.
The C's led by 26 points at the half which is the largest deficit a LeBron team has seen in the playoffs.
After cutting the deficit some in the third quarter the Celtics outscored the Cavs 30-19 in the fourth quarter.
Game two is Tuesday night at Boston Garden.
