Cleveland Cavaliers have been resting for 9 days as they awaited the victor from the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. As the Celtics come out on top after a gruesome 7 game series most thought the Cavaliers were going to face issues from sitting out too long but boy o' boy were they wrong.
Cavaliers came to play!! Lebron James was on fire first half, Celtics try using almost every player on court to cover James but to no success. Lebron was either blowing past Celtics big man to the rim or bodying up smaller defenders for the bucket.
Cavaliers were up 30-19 the first quarter and by half time the score was 61-39
Lebron James ended up with 38 Pts. 14-24 FG and 1-6 3pt
Kevin Love just trailing Lebron had 32 Pts. 9-16 FG and 6-9 3pt
For the Celtics..
Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley both scored 21 Pts; Isaiah Thomas with 17 Pts
[Cavaliers] 39-81 FG (48.1%) ; 11-31 3PT (35.5%) ; 28-35 Free Throw (80%)
[Celtics] 41-88 FG (46.6%) ; 12-38 3PT (31.6%) ; 10-18 Free Throw (55.6%)
FINAL SCORE: CAVALIERS 117 to CELTICS 104
