Bradley hits last-second shot, Celtics stun Cavs 111-108

The Cavaliers can beat teams in the paint, they can beat teams from behind the arc and they can beat teams with defense.

San Antonio still managed to match a postseason high with 33 points in the opening quarter and lead by as many as 6 in the first half.

"I didn't have it", James said.

Lue was right about one other thing: The Celtics are without their star Isaiah Thomas, out with a hip injury.

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.

The Cavaliers seemed to have snuffed out any life the Celtics had in a 130-86 romp in Game 2 in Boston on Friday night. "But when that happens, you've got to be able to get stops, especially being up 20 points".

Kyrie Irving led the Cavs with 29 points, and Kevin Love added 28 points and 10 rebounds. The Cavaliers dropped to 10-1 in the postseason with their first loss since Game 4 of last year's Finals. "We have to play a lot better". The future looks bright, however, now that they have the first overall pick in the upcoming National Basketball Association draft along with enough cap space to sign another max contract. "They got some open shots and moved around freely". This is a whole different deal, however, facing the defending champions without their own best player in Thomas. Those guys made plays.

"Some adversity is all part of the postseason", he said. You better believe it, as Twitter erupted into a frenzy unlike anything we've seen the La La Land fiasco or Super Bowl LI. We're definitely not going into the game taking them lightly. Lets regroup and get back to playing desperate basketball, which they did tonight. He's been down with everything he's been going through, and then for him not to be here, I know that hurts him even more. Reports have come out in the last few days that said the Celtics were going to pursue Hayward in free agency. 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. What happened hurts. It's a loss in the postseason, 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. Does that mean college too?

Cavaliers: James needs 62 points to pass Michael Jordan as the top scorer in postseason history.

Coach Tyronn Lue found the motivational tool by reminding his team the Chicago Bulls had a 2-0 lead over Boston in the first round of the playoffs. “That was a tight group, ” he said. "They did everything together, dinners and everything.". Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft, and fellow rookie Jabrill Peppers took a few shots on the floor before teams came out for warmups.
