LeBron became LeTired by the end of the 2nd quarter, and he was lifeless, lackluster and haphazard for the most part on defense. The Celtics, buoyed by their home crowd, suffocated the Cavs with two halves of amazing defensive basketball conceding 42 and 41 points. They capitalized on their early 32-19 lead and preserved it for the rest of the game.
The Celtics will fight for a chance to reach in the NBA Finals in just 6 games at the Quicken Loans Arena on Saturday morning by IST and Friday night by ET. It will be a sight to behold if this young and fighting Celtics squad makes it past The King at his own palace.
