No way. Cleveland's best bet is to try and steal game 1 or 2 and close it out at home in 6. If this series goes to 7 games, Boston wins. But no way in hell are they winning only 1 game.

We'll see.. Celtics were a Rondo injury away from losing to the Bulls and just went 7 w/ the Wizards. Now they get a well rested Cavs team playing their best ball of the season.

Celts don't have anyone that can guard Lebron, Bradley can make things tough for Kyrie, but still will get killed on the boards.

Lebron and the Cavs are dialed in right now and the Celtics don't have enough to really challenge them.

Let's just get to the Cavs-Warriors already...

If you were to ask me what is more likely, a Cavs sweep or a 6 game series, I'd take the Cavs sweep in a heartbeat. If the Cavs can lock down Thomas (which I can easily see Lebron doing), then this will be an ugly series. I agree with Dread...do not overlook the rest the Cavs have had.

Nets are stupid for not protecting the pick, regardless of the outcome of the lottery.

This is about how I feel. I think the Celtics can take 1 game, but it won't be an easy series. I'm thinking this is more like the Cavs-Pacers series than the Cavs-Raptors series: close hard games that ultimately ends in <5.

Same here. They still look like the worst 1 seed in a long time and I dont see them having much of a chance to move on.

And start Bradley, Thomas, and Fultz?

I think that's a marginal improvement on paper with such a tiny lineup. Especially considering they are one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA.

I do think Fultz has a good chance of being a superstar that could carry a team on a consistent basis, which I don't think the Celtics currently have.... I don't know. I think if there is truly a chance to get George or Butler, they would be stupid not to.

I can't tell if you are just joking. This is something that happens all the time in basketball. The Spurs do it more than anyone. In fact Aldridge did a more blatantly dirty version of the same thing last night to Durant. Bruce Bowen is famous for this and has defended it publicly stating that everyone who does it does not intend to injure, but they want the shooter to be uncomfortable and have to second guess their landing. It's only a big deal because Leonard got injured. Obviously I wish Leonard was healthy, but the Spurs never really had a great chance to win this series. It's not that big of a deal and I don't like either team.

Regarding the Celtics. There are people saying they should trade IT and next years Brooklyn pick for George or Butler and draft Fultz. I don't think that's a great plan. IT may not ever be a completely dominate force due to his size, but he's proven that he's a great player. Fultz isn't a slam dunk prospect.

Care to reconsider? Unless Cleveland blows this 41 point half time lead (which btw is the largest in playoff history), I don't see Boston winning a single game.

Reggie was saying that IT was limping toward the end of the first half. My guess is that will be his excuse

Boston won't even sniff a victory. They'll be lucky to lose by less than 15 the rest of the way.

The memes were hilarious last night for that Boston massacre.

IT might be out, not that it matters. This series is a total mismatch thru 2 games. Cavs in 4. They are peaking at the right time. Maybe give GS a tough series. Lebron playing like he is right now is fun to watch. Best all around player in the world and I don't know it's close. He literally dominates both ends of the court for long stretches.
