Are you not entertained? Is this not what you wanted? Cavs-Celtics Tie Series. A Reality Check.
Cavaliers- Celtics was the closest game, in terms of final score, out of all the games so far, or was it? LeBron James dominated and from time to time seems to be toying with the Boston Celtics. Did anybody else notice LeBron check in with about 8 minutes left in the game, as if he was just going through the motions into another win? LeBron makes it look too easy at times and it is really unfair compared to a Boston Team that seem to be struggling with the easiest things (Tatum missed dunk, Brown wide open shot).
Marcus Morris was the LeBron stopper and for 2 games Brad Stevens had the formula to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. Stephen A Smith was yelling sweep. The only talks were off the outcome of losing to the Boston Celtics would have on LeBron James’ epic career. Then Saturday happen and yea that happen, good memories will forget the score. Monday is gone and now we have gotten to a reality check. Unlike the Warriors-Rockets series we are just hoping for a competition from one side of the equation.
3 games left tilt the bells are rang and one team has to move forward to the next round. 2 games are a must win, luckily for Boston, they play 2 games at home where they have played their best. History is amazing, the Boston Celtics are 37-0 after leading 2-0 in a series, and LeBron James is now 7-0 winning the next games after being down 2-0.
We are experiencing history in sports whichever team wins. It is true poetic justice if the Celtics are the team that dethrones LeBron James especially without Kyrie Irving. Also Historic would be if LeBron James once again makes it to the NBA finals.
The Celtics shouldn’t embraced full panic mode lose and go home mentality, because if they don’t is going to be Cavs in 6. There is not a scenario that doesn’t favor the Cavaliers, win game 5 and series is over in 6. Cavs lose game 5, play a team that has only won 1 game on the road and go back to Boston with fiery LeBron James to deal with.
How can the Boston Celtics survived or have they ran out of luck?
I wrote previously an article called “2-0 is not end game for LeBron & the Cavaliers. Is far from over.” Now the series at 2-2. What happens next??
