No hard feelings! No need for nasty plays from both Celetics and Cavaliers.  No change in Cavs

No hard feelings! No need for nasty plays from both Celtics and Cavaliers!  No change in Cavs attitude. It’s all basketball after all. This is what sports is all about. Play the game in the right spirits and as Love said before the game “Moving on”

Cavaliers took care of the business.  There was lot discussion around Love’s injury from last year playoffs and it did not affect any game play. Boston could only hold on to slight lead at the end of 1st and 2nd quarters (2 at first and 4 at second) and after that it’s all turned in to a one sided game.

LeBron scored 24, with Love 20 points with 8 rebounds.

Celtic fans were really behind their team throughout the game, expecting a win, but that did not help as their team lost their focus in both third and fourth quarters.

Another win at home. This time game ended with a classic hook shot from LeBron James, with 1 second

Another win at home! This time game is ended with a classic hook shot from LeBron James, with 1 second left on the clock.

Good to see LeBron with his clutch shot! 

LeBron’s highlights:

  • 3 Pointer in 4th quarter
  • Quick pass to Tristan and Tristan scoring a 2 and an extra point from free throw
  • Layup 2 pointer resulted in foul and an extra free throw which was scored.
  • 2 free throws 
  • Classic hook shot in the final seconds (1 second left on the clock) to close the game.
  • Steal from Brook Lopez is questionable but interestingly Lopez did not protest.

Nets were looking forward for a OT game with Joe Johnson scoring all his 3 free throws. Cavs got 14 seconds on the clock they were successful in closing the game.

There is this Signature Scoring Moment again by Tristan from Dellavedova pass in the closing minutes of 4th quarter.

Unsung hero in my opinion is J R Smith. His defense in the 4th quarter is outstanding. Problem with his defense is he will end up in more Personal Fouls.

For Brooklyn Nets, Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez played their hearts out. Nets had 19 Turnovers compared to Cavs 16, otherwise Cavs and Nets are matched almost in every department.

Orlando Magic 6-7 coming into this game. Cavaliers are 13-3 and unbeaten at home this season. Injur
Cavs Win

Orlando Magic 6-7 coming into this game. Cavaliers are 10-3 and unbeaten at home this season.

Injuries really played a role in Cav’s roster this year and it is clearly reflected in the starting lineup in this game with LeBron, Kevin, J R Smith, Dellavedova and Tristan.

  • Mozgov - Out with right shoulder strain
  • Williams - Out with right ankle inflammation

LeBron and Kevin can only take so much of load even though they both are experienced and well-seasoned players. Bench has to play both roles now.

First part of the 2nd quarter was interesting to watch but Magic were never a threat entire game. Bright side for Magic is Oladipo doing couple of shots with high energy.

Cavs overpowered Magic in 3rd quarter and built a healthy lead of 12-points going into 4th quarter.

Cavs leading with 2 at the of1st, 2 at 2nd quarter and 12 at end of 3rd quarter. There was never a chance for Magic. Lead changed few times during first 2 quarters and that’s about it.

Love is now gone beyond his season high of 25, set in the last game. Love scored 34, Smith scored 26 points. Love and Smith are absolutely wonderful to watch. Good to see J R Smith stepping up.

Great win at Home! Go Cavs!

Net Player Score - This is a total team win with Love and Smith are leading the pack and Delly scoring 15 points!
