The eastern conference finals has officially started between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. In game of one of the heavenly anticipated series, the Celtics took the lead and never looked back. Boston won with a final score of 108-83. For Cleveland, nobody really had that impressive of a game or even a decent game. The leading scorer for the Cavs was Kevin Love with a measly 17 points, which is not even close to leading any team to a victory in the NBA. As for the best player in the league, LeBron James, had one of his worst playoff performances in years. James had 15 points, nine assists, seven rebounds, and seven turnovers. This is nowhere near his playoff averages which are near 32.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 9 assists.
For the Celtics, every one of their players contributed well with Jaylen Brown leading the way with 23 points. Other players that helped were Jayson Tatum with 16, Marcus Morris with 21, and Al Horford with 20 points. The series will be interesting from here on out with a very possible seven game series. If Cleveland does not win game two in Boston, it will be very tough for them to bring the series back from a 0-2 deficit against a very well oiled machine in the Boston Celtics.
