Celtics' Thomas sits out 2nd half with right hip strain

Sir Charles clearly had no idea how right he would be. "We'll find out what kind of team we ae how we respond". Smith promptly awoke the dreary crowd with a ridiculous, turning fallaway jumper at the buzzer to give Cleveland an NBA-record 41-point halftime lead.

"We're not scared of Cleveland", he said. But while their season has to be considered a success no matter what happens in this series, they have gone to great lengths to let you know they're not satisfied. It's one game, and we know this team is a very scrappy team. "They play their traditional way".

The Cleveland Cavaliers didn't have much trouble with the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, leading by 20 points for much of the second half en route to a 117-104 win. Hip strain aside, Thomas has been completely engulfed.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after Boston's Game 7 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday that Thomas was "dealing with more stuff, physically", but didn't elaborate. "We're going back home, we're not going to get comfortable". And he was pretty despondent not to be able to play. "For him to have to sit is really hard".

"Not 44 points' worth", Stevens said.

"I don't want to put that on any one guy".

The win also marked Cleveland's 13th straight playoff win which tied the Los Angeles Lakers' 13 in a row way back in 1988-89. The streak tied an National Basketball Association record. Tyronn Lue kept the starters on the court for the vast entirety of the first three quarters, setting up the lead to a unforgiving 50 points in the third, and then eventually resting the Big 3 in the 4th after their phenomenal performance scoring 74 points between the three of them.

Better than 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists? I mean, they definitely showed a few bodies that was aggressive on me, but that's nothing I haven't seen this whole year. If you've got a shot, you go for it'. I know I'm going to bring it.

The deeper you get into it, the more your flaws come to the surface and eventually prove to be your undoing. "That's not for me to be concerned about".

James has scored 30 points in eight straight games as he looks to visit the finals for the seventh-straight season. The trio went a combined 11 of 21 from 3-point range. The Cavaliers' 39-point lead had long since surpassed the Celtics' total points scored, yet the East's No. 1 seed failed to even initiate any action in their final possession of the opening half. Boston simply does not roster a player who can consistently deter James and any collective effort yields an open weak side triple.
