The Celtics Pulled Off the NBA Upset of the Year

The Celtics Pulled Off the NBA Upset of the Year

"My teammates did a great job of keeping us in the game, building that lead". But me personally, I didn't have it. We've just got to get back to, like I said, being physical, bringing the physicality and having a defensive mindset. (Here are his stats.) Or maybe the guy was the primary defender when freshman LeBron managed just 11 points on 16 shots against Garfield in the third game of his high school career.

The more Bradley, and more so Brad Stevens, can rely on bench players such as Jerebko, the better off the Celtics will be. Bradley said. "We never counted ourselves out".

Cleveland forward LeBron James was ineffective Sunday, scoring just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting with five turnovers. Two players from the last two decades that have often been discussed with James among all-time greats are Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan.

The series resumes Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena before returning to Boston on Thursday for a Game 5 that didn't appear necessary until the Celtics stormed back from 21 down and won when Avery Bradley's 3-pointer danced an Irish jig on the rim before falling with 0.01 seconds left.

I don't think that anyone really thinks that anything has changed about the complexion of the series. "He has so many different wrinkles, misdirection, thinking the ball is going this way, he has a misdirection going the other way. But I'm glad it kind of hurt, that it happened the way it did - let our foot off the gas a little bit, didn't keep the pressure on them like we have been accustomed to". He has a lot of packages.

James took just three shots in the fourth quarter and missed all of them. The Celtics made 18 three-pointers for the game.

Iranian president calls U.S. relations 'a curvy road'
Presidents have largely overlooked allegations of rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and deepened ties in the energy and defence areas. On Tuesday, he is set to meet with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank and deliver a speech at the Israeli Museum.

"Our chemistry is getting better and better and we're going to need it even more whoever we play in the finals", Durant told an interviewer.

Cleveland is one of the best three-point shooting teams in the National Basketball Association - regular season and playoffs.

Kevin Love added 17 points and 17 rebounds for the Cavs, now 11-1 in the postseason. "We can't make things up or just seek guys out". His nine made field goals in one quarter set a new Cavs playoff record.

"I didn't have it", James said. Watching the fourth quarter gave me hope for the spirit of competition in the National Basketball Association. You've been working hard on your game all season. "In the second half, it showed".

"No blame", Lue said. Should the Celtics trade Isaiah, or should they bank on top picks and free agents to take them to the next level? It is easy to forget one of last night's heroes, Marcus Smart, was the 6th overall pick in the 2014 draft, and for the Celtics he is essentially a "sixth man". Stevens didn't review much of the Game 2 tape, but there's a mental image in his head of the Cavs making tough shot after tough shot.

"It felt good. It felt good to see him smile", he said. They made a lot of plays. The Cavs had been playing a glorified game of H.O.R.S.E. with the Warriors, who are undefeated and can complete a sweep of San Antonio on Monday night. One of the things about Marcus is he's going to play regardless of the score. "I'm focused on game four".
