Celtics rout Cavaliers in Game 1 of Eastern Conference finals

"I blatantly pushed him". Just wanted to go back to the back and make sure everything was fine. "It was a good, hard foul".

LEBRON James produced one of his all-time playoff performances, but even his monster game was not enough to stop a rampant Boston comeback win that leaves Cleveland's season on the ropes.

The Celtics committed just five turnovers, which led to five Cavs' points, while the Cavs' miscues led to 13 points for the Celtics.

It started with Lue whose questionable rotation management returned at the worst possible time. The only problem was that Boston wasn't giving way, and the Cavaliers took just a 55-48 lead into the half.

Green turned the ball over on the Cavs last possession and The Garden was re-energized heading into halftime.

The same turnaround jumper looped over the backboard and dropped in during Game 4 against the Raptors, but on Sunday it clanked off the rim.

Cavaliers forward LeBron James said he just needed a chance to "recalibrate" when he left in the second quarter Tuesday night after taking a shot to the jaw from Boston's Jayson Tatum. James spent about 10 seconds on one knee under the basket, then walked off to the Cleveland locker room.

The Cavaliers said James had a neck sprain. The only time the younger team won was way back in 1959 when the Minneapolis Lakers (25.9) eliminated the Detroit Pistons (27.5) in three games in the opening round.

Marcus Morris, who outscored James in the series opener, kept up the offensive assault in that quarter-ending surge and backup center Aron Baynes put in an alley oop from Smart and after a James turnover hit a crucial 3 for a 79-74 Celtics lead with 2:39 left in the third quarter.

Now, we have our answer.

"We've got to be tougher".

So explosive most nights, their consistency on offense allowed them to overcome and enter the playoffs with a refreshed attitude despite pitiful defensive habits and an overall lack of toughness and goal at that end of the floor. "We'll see how he feels". They're gooning the game up, and we've got to do the same thing.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, James now has three career playoff 40-point triple-doubles.

Many of the Celtics, on the other hand, are still getting used to playing in the National Basketball Association.

"You know, that was big for us", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said of James' setback. "That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us". "It's like a bully, you keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's going to pick on you until you finally stand up".

The Celtics finished the night shooting 43.5 percent from the field, while knocking down 10-of-31 from deep.
