Aron Baynes is flourishing as one of the old hands on a Boston Celtics squad full of young guns. In the following six Game 2s, he upped his shooting percentage to 41.2 percent. He also had 7 turnovers in Game 1, after averaging 3.7 turnovers per game in the opening round and 2.0 turnovers per game in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Unless something changes the momentum of this series, the Celtics should go ahead 2-0.

And Celtics coach Brad Stevens knows that it will take a continued team effort to limit James' influence in this series if Boston hope to advance to the Finals for the first time in eight years. Lebron was held to 15 points on 5-16 shooting, failed to make a shot beyond the arc, and had seven turnovers on the way to a Celtics drubbing over the ClevelandCavaliers, 108-83. He is confident that the Celtics will continue to do well against James in Game 2 as they have a great strategy. After averaging 22.5 dimes a game in the regular season and 21.6 during the playoffs, Boston dished out 27 assists in the Game 1 rout. He no longer wanted to play alongside James, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst , making it clear he'd like to be the focal point of a team's offense.
