LeBron James, Cavaliers have Celtics in must-win jam

The Cleveland Cavaliers know very well what Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas can do when he has the ball in his hands, and as the Eastern Conference Finals resume tonight at TD Garden, they are focused on making his life hard on the offensive end.

BOSTON LeBron James did pretty much whatever he wanted to against the Celtics in the Cavaliers' dominating win in Game1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Cleveland hasn't lost a single game in the 2017 playoffs and are looking to sweep Boston on their way towards another NBA Championship series.

"I know I'll be fighting for my life, so I would expect the same thing from the other team", Irving said. "We're not scared of Cleveland". Even so, they know they're not facing the Monstars here. That said, it's becoming more and more exciting to watch LeBron reach levels in the game we've never seen before. "They're not on 'Space Jam, '" Thomas said.

With home-court advantage gone, the Celtics face a virtual must-win Game 2 tonight. "Like, they lace up their shoes just like us. We have to be ready for it", he said.

There's a staircase under the Robert E. Lee statue?
But Frank Varela Jr., a New Orleans native carrying an American flag, said he thought Lee should stay up as "a part of the South". The area that formerly housed the Jefferson Davis statue will soon feature an American flag, the city announced Thursday night.

"We're not just happy to be here", Isaiah continued. "I think that learning that early as opposed to learning that late has helped me out in my career, people like Gerald Green who has been in my ear from the beginning, he's been in the league a lot and he's been in the league, out of the league, but he's always made an effort to come talk to me, and he's been a ideal example for me, so I learned a lot from him about how to be ready and how to take advantage of every situation because you don't know how situations might end up". And we've been there before, though, so it's nothing new for us. "Now we just have to execute". It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play.

"It's kind of insane thinking like how I was just in high school two years ago, now I'm here playing in the Eastern Conference Finals against the defending champs, so it's kind of cool", Brown said, who later mentioned that he would have believed it back then had you told him that he would playing in the Eastern Conference Finals as an National Basketball Association rookie.
