LeBron James' 42pts/10rebs/12ast night laid to waste by the young & strong-willed Celtics in a 107-94 come-from-behind win.
James dropped 21 points in the 1st quarter itself letting Boston know who's the King after the Game 1 beatdown. Cavs went to the locker room at halftime with a 7-point cushion, comfortably in position to take the second half, but the 3rd quarter had other plans. Celtics outscored them 36-22 riding on Jaylen Brown(23pts/7rebs), Al Horford(15pts/10rebs) & Terry Rozier's(18pts/5rebs) back.
The playoff intensity was there to be witnessed and absorbed throughout the TD Garden. Occasional Skirmishes, mouthing off and physical defense led to an all-around show for the spectators visiting.
Apart from Kevin Love's 22 points & 15 boards, there was little help for LeBron all throughout the 48 minutes, with the team shooting 46% from the field & just 32% from downtown.
Cleveland Cavaliers now find themselves in a 0⃣-2⃣ hole. They will need to win Game 3 back at home desperately as no team has ever come back from 3⃣-0⃣ down to win a playoff series in the NBA.
