Again, as a Boston Celtics fan, it was a great pleasure watching a group of young studs come together to beat the superstar that is LeBron James. The Cavaliers' system is essentially LeBron or bust, and it was LeBron AND bust for this game as the Celtics came back from an anemic first quarter to earn a hard-fought victory at home. So this is me, Amulya Shekhar, signing off from the live feed now. Have a good time until game 3 on Sunday by IST and Saturday by ET.
