Game 5: Celtics’ fans vs LeBron James and the Cavaliers

Game 5: Celtics’ fans vs LeBron James and the Cavaliers

The Boston Celtics have not loss at home during the playoffs, they play the 2 of the 3 there.  The Cavaliers have won 3 games on the road.  Over the last couple years the question of how important home court advantage have been largely debated.  For a team like the Toronto Raptors it seem like it didn’t matter or were they always meant to lose to LeBron.  Last years, Boston Celtics fought tilt the end for home court advantage and still loss.  Maybe a nonsense theory but some teams (Cavaliers and Warriors) just seem to be content with making the playoffs regarding of seeding.

Fans are a big factor when it comes any sports teams.  There is a sense of comfortably playing in your own home field.  The crowd is there to cheer you up and pick you up when needed, celebrating every play on both sides of the floor.  The Celtics are a young team that are missing the 2 pieces that were supposed to lead them in this situation.  Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier have stepped up in way that nobody could have ever predicted.  They are about to face their biggest challenge yet.

Year 15 LeBron, how he is been to refer too now, is a force.  Tristan Thompson-Kardashian seems to have come back to life and in the best form yet.  Kyle Korver and Kevin Love are really becoming 1 and the other.  George Hill is slowly coming back to life.  The Cavaliers are getting better at closing out games compared to the Pacers series.

Notes/ Factors:

  • Terry Rozier hasn’t scored over 18 this series. Hasn’t broken 20 since game 2 vs Philly.
  • Mid-season acquisitions Jordan Clarkson & Larry Nance have pretty much become nonexistent.
  • LeBron James have 6 40+ points performances this post season alone.
  • Marcus Morris has gradually played less minutes every game.
  • Jaylen Brown has been the clear leader and go to guy for the Celtics averaging 20 points in the series

Cavaliers & Celtics Meet Again!! NBA Playoffs!!

Cavaliers & Celtics Meet Again!! NBA Playoffs!!

Is official!! The NBA eastern conference finals have officially begun, the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers clash again. Game 1 is already on the books, a dominant win by the Celtics but LeBron James and the Cavaliers should not be written off.

The Celtics wasted no time blasting the Cavaliers with everything they had, completely blindsiding the Cavaliers. Celtics had 4 players score in double digits, led by Jaylen Brown 23 points. Horford score 20, Jayson Tatum score 16 and the self-titled “Best LeBron Defender” score 21 points (while holding LeBron at 15) to add to his case. Credit Brad Stevens and the Celtics players because they are looking like the real deal.

The Cavaliers look terrible, no other ways to describe it, are they worried? No. Did it seem like they gave it all they had? No. Should they be desperate? Maybe. The answer to all the questions would change if they didn’t have LeBron James. If LeBron is not worried about them, they team is not worried about them. Game 1 was a bad loss against a team that started hot and kept it through the game.

Even though it was a 25 point victory, the game in many areas was a lot closer. The 3 point battle was clearly won by the Celtics with 11, the Cavs when 4-26, they average 11.5 Vs Toronto. For the game the Cavaliers shot 36%, James led the way shooting 5-16. The turnover battle was won by Cleveland 11-10. Lastly the Cavaliers shot and made more free throws.

Can you count on the Celtics shooting that well. But really it was descent, it was about their average game but you can’t really see that due to how bad Cleveland played. The Celtics are a great home team and wins like this are what are expected at home. The Cavaliers are an up and down team with one of the best players in the roster.

The Celtics should look to replicate Game 1 jump start, while Cleveland will just regroup and build upon the last game because is almost impossible to have a worse game than that. At the end of the day, it was just one game and while it matters is not a series determining game (Cavs Vs Pacers went to 7).

Is Terry Rozier the next James Harden??

Is Terry Rozier the next James Harden??

Written by Francis S Estepan.  April 20th, 2018.

As humans we are always looking for the next big thing.  In the NBA Who will be the next MJ? Kobe? Shaq? LeBron James is still playing the game and already we are looking for who is going to one-up him? Ben Simmons? Giannis?  So here is a nonsense theory for case for Terry Rozier v James Harden.

Rozier currently holding the starting position for the Boston Celtics as they faced Milwaukee Bucks.  Rozier is a 6-2 lengthy sophomore guard that seems to shine whenever Brad Stevens calls his name (or Kyrie Irving is missing more time).  When looking at his numbers the first thing that comes to mind is how his numbers for the season are so low.  Now look at his post season numbers and you can see a different monster giving the minutes and the shots.

f                Be mindful that last year he was a ball dominant guard Isaiah Thomas and this year another one in Kyrie Irving.  17-18 Playoff comes his number has officially been called and he is producing at an unbelievable rate 23 Ppg, 5.5 Ast, 3.5 Rebounds while taking care of the ball.  His minutes have double from the years before and he doesn’t seem to be letting fatigue slow him down.

James Harden was drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder and didn’t get his first start tilt his sophomore year.  Fast forward some years he is the face of the Houston Rockets, making the Thunder look like they gave up gold for beach sand.  Looking at the playoff numbers Harden 3rd season was where he came alive in the playoffs.  (Rozier is on his 3rd year, look back at his numbers).

Rozier had a triple double in his first NBA start, that may have been a sign, some may have seen as a fluke. Brad Stevens didn’t seem too worry with Kyrie latest injury, he seem to have been prepare with an insurance policy that came with the Terry Rozier premium.  The postseason is where players are made or broken? Where players earn their statuses for years to come? Vintage Rondo, Father time/Wade, Manu Ginobili.

Harden and Rozier ability to score when the stage is big could be what draws them closer in comparison.  Put the numbers aside and you can find the similarity in their situations.  Could it have been guaranteed that Harden would have become as dominant alongside Westbrook and Durant? Have we seen what Rozier is fully capable off?

Right now Terry Rozier is no James Harden. Should teams start throwing money bags at him, that’s above my pay grade.  No team is going to sit a Kyrie Irving for a Terry Rozier.  But not all teams have a Kyrie or a Harden.  If Rozier talent is truly there, he shouldn’t let it go to waste being a backup.  Teams in the NBA are always looking to build a solid foundation.  It worked out well for Houston.

Do you think Terry Rozier the next James Harden??

(Side note: Bledsoe comments regarding not knowing who Rozier is.  Any player that hits a clutch shot, has a great game against you or is between you and the next round? You know who he is. If Jrue Holiday remembers how hard Rajon Rondo plays in the playoffs from a series years ago, am sure Bledsoe remembers put him on wheels than a week ago) #BledsoeSalty
