Best Memes of LeBron James & the Cavaliers Crushed by the Boston Celtics

Best Memes of LeBron James & the Cavaliers Crushed by the Boston Celtics Best Memes of LeBron James & the Cavaliers Crushed by the Boston Celtics

When Gordon Hayward went down in the first game of the season against the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was a major blow for a Boston Celtics team that was expected to be in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston Celtics' power forward Marcus Morris - who Celtics head coach Brad Stevens brought over for the moment he finds himself in now - guarding Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James - backed up his talk about being the best "LeBron-stopper" this side of Kawhi Leonard.

Baynes, the 31-year-old Queenslander, has been using the experience he gleaned from being part of the 2014 San Antonio Spurs' championship-winning team to help guide an injury-ravaged Celtics squad relying on the talented but inexperienced Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier. Morris went on to finish with 10 rebounds and 21 points making it his first career playoff double.

The Pacers stunned the Cavs at home in their first-round opener, rolling to an 18-point victory. Al Horford's domination of Love set the tone of Game 1. He told reporters after the game that he saw things in Game 1 that prepared him for Tuesday's Game 2. Morris excelled in a way even he couldn't have expected in Game 1. The Celtics led by 28 when Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue pulled James for good with 7:09 left.

The end result of that game, regardless of how the series between the Cavaliers and the Celtics ends, is that it's not as much an indictment of the Raptors gameplan against LeBron, although Toronto certainly did have their rotation issues, as it's an indictment of the Raptors' execution.

The Celtics scored 61 points in the first half against the Cavs, allowing only 35 points. That season he averaged 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Shooting a dismal 15% on three-point attempts as a team didn't help Cleveland's effort either, nor did James' seven turnovers on the day.

I have zero level of concern at this stage. "So, you have to make it as hard as possible on him and guard the other guys well".

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics outshot the Cleveland Cavaliers all game long.

After the game, the internet went insane once again. the masses came out with creative memes before the game practically making fun of Morris for suggesting such a thing. "I thought that we weren't as aggressive". In Game 2, James was all but unstoppable as he replied with a 46-point, 12-rebound performance.

There are small adjustments to be made, but the Cavaliers also have the option of breaking out a line-up change that could rob Boston of some of their switchability. If his Cavaliers overcome their 1-0 series deficit against the Celtics this year, he'll earn his eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals as the East's representative, too.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith (5) and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart (36) get entangled during the second quarter of Game 1 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference Finals, Sunday, May 13, 2018, in Boston. "On the pick and rolls, they were able to get downhill a lot, so we've got to clean that up".

Dan Feldman of NBC Sports put together a video comparing LeBron's recollection to the actual plays in the game.

"He's obviously the best player in the game", said Morris, who during the week boasted that he was up to the challenge and on Sunday explained why he wanted it.
