After the Boston Celtics stomped out his Cleveland Cavaliers to open the 2018 Eastern Conference finals on Sunday, LeBron James kept it cool, insisting he had “zero level of concern at this stage” with his team down a game in the best-of-seven set. Coming off a disappointing start to the series, Brad Stevens’ Celtics expected to get a monster effort from James in Game 2. Boston choked out the Cavs in the second half, limiting the three-time-defending Eastern Conference champs to 39 points on 39 shots after halftime before pulling away in the closing minutes for a 107-94 win.

Cavaliers forward LeBron James said he just needed a chance to ''recalibrate'' when he left in the second quarter Tuesday night after taking a shot to the jaw from Boston's Jayson Tatum. Obviously incidental,'' James said after the Celtics beat Cleveland 107-94 to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals despite his 42 points and a triple-double. James was driving to the basket when Tatum went for the steal with both hands and collided with the Cleveland star, driving his shoulder into James' jaw.

Cavs-Celtics: Should J.R. Smith have been tossed for flagrant foul against Al Horford?

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ playoff run reached an inflection point Tuesday in a 107-94 loss to the Boston Celtics, and frustration appeared to take over on an ugly foul committed late in the game by guard J.R. Smith. The Cavs, in the midst of a 39-point second half while blowing a seven-point halftime lead, were running out of time against a Celtics team that had wrested control of the game with a chance to take a 2-0 series lead. With just under four minutes to play, Boston forced a Cavs defensive switch that left Al Horford with a clear path to the basket and a lob pass from Marcus Smart.

The Boston Celtics defended their home court and took a commanding lead after topping the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-94 in game two of the Eastern Conference finals. Not even a triple-double from Cleveland superstar LeBron James could stop the Cavaliers from falling 2-0 down in the playoff series on Tuesday. The Cavaliers led for much of the first half and carried a 55-48 advantage into main interval but Boston outscored Cleveland by 14 in the third quarter to turn their seven-point deficit into an 84-77 advantage at TD Garden.

Jaylen Brown led the Celtics with 23 points while Al Horford who came through in a big way in the fourth, tallied a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds along with four assists.
