Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss

Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss

Smart lunged at Smith after the Cavs player shoved an airborne Al Horford in the back as the Celtics took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series on Tuesday, May 15, at the TD Garden.

LeBron James recorded 42 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds for the Cavaliers, marking his NBA-record 17th career playoff game with 30 points and 10 assists.

For the third straight series, Boston has taken care of the first two games and now climb to 9-0 at home in the playoffs. But at the same time, they now know precisely what they have to work with as they try to either put together a better roster around James or, if he leaves as a free agent, get the team back in shape quicker than when James left the first time in 2010.Citing the aggregate of mock draft boards out there, the Cavs generally agree that a player like Michael Porter Jr., the Missouri forward considered by many to be the top player in the 2018 draft until he hurt his back at the start of the season, could be there at No. 8. We see that. They're being physical.

Kevin Love finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds for Cleveland.

Moments after Morris' exultation, Marcus Smart, whose hustle and energy proved vital throughout the game, hit a go-ahead 3-pointer.

"We've got to come out swinging", Lue said.

Smith was later issued with a flagrant foul over the push, which sent Horford crashing to the floor. I think we had some good looks, we had a two-possession game, down six, we had a great trap in the corner on Jaylen Brown.

The Cavaliers also have four trade exceptions, including one worth nearly $6 million from the Kyrie Irving trade that they could go get a veteran guy that James likes, to add to the club. Brad Stevens always has an option for whichever way James is trying to attack, and they are not going to get worked up over James hitting hard shots with great defense.

But it might have been the hustle of Smart near the end of the first half that gave the Celtics life after the Cavaliers led by double digits with under four minutes to play in the second quarter. After a 25-point loss in the opener, Lue altered his frontcourt by putting Tristan Thompson with the first five and bringing Kyle Korver off the bench. "It wasn't like I was trying to low-bridge him or something".

The Eastern Conference Finals continues Saturday night in Cleveland. "Just make sure he didn't get it", Smith said.

A league source conferred with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski to relay information regarding JR Smith's "hard foul" on Al Horford in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final. The relentless pressure and intensity of the Celtics continued to wear on the Cavs, as Boston were just kicking into gear.

"[Horford's] a defenseless person, he's in the air", Smart said following the win. Following that run, the Celtics never looked back as they turned a seven point deficit at half to a seven point lead going into the fourth quarter.

For Boston, it was about understanding that they had taken an almighty blow, and remained right with the Cavs. It's not the first time J.R.'s done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us.

"They're playing tougher than we are, ' Lue said of the physicality in the series".

"If you don't get to the Finals, baby, it disappears", he added.
