LeBron James suffers neck strain after collision

It's time for the Cavaliers to make some adjustments

Tristan Thompson predicts LeBron will do 'something legendary' in Game 2

The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to bounce back after a lackluster performance in Game 1, when they lost in embarrassing fashion 108-83. Cleveland needs to rediscover its identity before Game 3, or this series could end quickly. Players like Shane Larkin, Semi Olejeye, and Marcus Smart make it possible for Coach Stevens to sub out the starters and let them rest for long periods of times. And with the expectation for a forceful response from James in Game 2, it's worth studying the history, as he suggested. He's 2-4 in series in which he's trailed 0-2 (the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Pistons and 2016 Finals against the Warriors being the exceptions).

It was during that November 2007 ceremony that the franchise named its court the "Red Auerbach Parquet Floor" in honor of the iconic coach, who guided the Celtics to nine National Basketball Association championships in 10 years: 1957 and from 1959-1966. We have another opportunity to be better (on) Tuesday. "He's always done it". Bet the Boston Celtics -1.0 over the Cavaliers in game 2.

Although it's just one loss for the Cavs, it's definitely concerning.

"I think in the first half we were a little soft", Love said on Monday. "I've been down before in the postseason".

LeBron James will probably score 35 points (or more) tonight, maybe with 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Though James will surely put in a much better performance, it's hard to go past Boston at the -1.0 point line offered by oddsmakers after their 25 point victory in Game 1. I just think they took advantage of mismatches and we weren't able to get there. "Everybody played their part in guarding him".

Over James' postseason lifetime, a circumstance similar to what he's suggesting here against the Celtics has played out on a few other memorable occasions. In Game 1, Kevin Love was the leading scorer with 17 points, but he was just 1-of-4 from three.

The Celtics took the floor to a hype video that began with the broadcast of Hayward's injury in the first quarter of the first game, at Cleveland.

In the postgame press conference, James was asked what happened during the Celtics' initial spurt. Previous year during the playoffs, while praising the play of then-Cavs backup guard Deron Williams, James instantly recalled several straight possessions, in detail, of how Williams impacted the game. Miami won the series in five. Tristan Thompson had a game-high 11 rebounds off the Cavs' bench.

As for LeBron himself, he admitted neither he nor the Cavs had an answer to the Celtics' high-energy approach in Game One but vowed to come back stronger in Game Two.

James was just 5-of-16 from the field and zero in five attempts from the three-point arc.

With Game 1 in the proverbial rear-view mirror, James seems to be locked in on the task at hand. Since returning to Cleveland, he's 3-2.

LeBron James was the first to arrive at the arena today, to get shots up early.

Thompson's strategy against Horford doesn't sound complicated.
