Like Philadelphia did in Game 2, I imagine the Cavaliers are going to come out and try to get off to a fast start. The C's NEED to weather their runs. While the C's did make the comeback against PHI in Game 2 despite falling behind by 25, I just don't think they can do it against a Lebron-led Cavaliers team if they do fall behind by a ton early. Not when they're down 1-0 already.

As much as I despise him (as a player, not person), I think Lebron IS going to go off today. Hopefully our defense though manages to smother and contain their other threats like Love, JR, Korver though. My two biggest fears is that Thompson manages to kill us inside (with put-backs or key rebounds) AND/OR the referees take over. Thankfully we don't have Foster or Brothers reffing this game, but it wouldn't surprise me if the refs tonight call some 50/50 calls against us and start putting some of our guys in foul trouble early to benefit Lebron and co. C's have to play smart and limit the turnovers and low IQ shots.

I think Tatum will have a big game today (25-30 points). They don't have anyone who can really guard him, so Tatum will hopefully be in attack mode. Hopefully Morris has found his mojo again and gives us a solid 15-20 points too. I imagine they'll try their best to keep Horford in check and possibly Brown too, so we need Tatum, Morris, and Rozier to have big games. CLE won't shoot that poorly again, but I imagine we'll still make it tough on them, and we have to keep attacking them inside. Thompson, while still pesky, isn't the same player as 2 years ago, and Love is a horrible defender in the paint. I think we see some Monroe tonight to deal with Thompson at times, especially on the offensive end. Attack, Attack, Attack! And if they clog the inside, kick it to the open guy! Hope it's a great night with a win, Brooklyn Pick NOT landing Top-3, and Celtics acquiring the Lakers pick despite the low odds.

I am not sure what is going to happen tonight, except this: Cleveland is going to come out with much more fight. It is going to be a war. I think we are going to have enough, but this time we will have a fight on our hands. The garden should be rocking!

Letís go Cs! C us Crise!

I predict a close game with Bron trying to take control.  The Cís need to feed off the crowd and win this game.  We donít want to go back to Cleveland even.  If we take this one and split in Cleveland it will be done in 5 and Bronís reign as king is over.  LETS GO CELTICS!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone here already knows he's going to be better, but I thought it was funny to see Jaylen Brown already has more 20-point Playoff games than Jeff Green. In 21 less games and 10 less starts.

Jeff Green is a poor man's Jaylen Brown

I really hope we stop even putting Jaylen in the same utterance as Jeff Green soon.
I think that time has passed now. Just a funny comparison in hindsight - that many disagreed with anyway.

Just so no one freaks out, I wanna prepare you ahead of time, Lebron is going to shoot A LOT of free throws tonight.  A LOT.  At least 15 attempts.

I'll take the over on that.

Pretty pumped for the game!

Really great time to be a Celtics fan.

Whatís the over/under on how long into the game before Lebron forcefully bangs his way backwards to the hoop and draws a foul while initiating all of the contact?

First possession for Cleveland. Who knows how long that will take, but within the first minute I bet

Love how the narrative after Game 1 has been that the Cavs merely missed shots and Lebron will just pour it on tonight and lead the team to victory  ::)

I hope we win soundly again just so I can see the mental gymnastics that these talking heads will use to justify their continued riding of Lebron.

Might be a good idea to put "non-essential personnel" on him in the first quarter. Cause the refs will want to set the tone early. We can't stop them from calling fouls. But at least we can give a few of those fouls to Semi instead of Smart or Tatum or whoever.

My favorite part is how too many people are desperately trying to claim that the Celtics are hardly undermanned, at this point ::). Like, wat?
