LeBron James was naturally a part of it; he operated with much more ease as the Celtics’ defense had to extend to cover the 3-point shooting. James had 19 points and six assists in the first half as the Cavs built a huge lead. He finished with 27 points and 12 assists, making 8 of 12 shots.
When James runs up those assist totals and doesn’t need as many shots, the Cavs are clicking — and probably making 3-pointers. But he also was nicely engaged defensively, setting the tone early on by blocking a couple of shots and showing needed activity. The Celtics were 2-of-10 shooting with four turnovers when James was the primary defender.
As a group, even when things broke down, we just covered for one another, James said. We made them make extra passes. We made them make extra dribbles. We were flying around, and I just happened to be one of the guys on the floor that wanted to fly around, as well.
The Celtics shot just 38 percent over three quarters before garbage time commenced, as they lacked the movement and vigor of the games in Boston. None of their key contributors was active, especially the backcourt of Rozier and Jaylen Brown, who were a combined 8-of-20 shooting.
The Panthers waived him in February, and the Saints claimed him off waivers.
Theus entered the NFL as a fifth-round pick of the 49ers in 2016. He played four games with one start at left tackle in his rookie season.
The Cavaliers shot 12-of-19 off James’ passes in Game 3, including 6-of-11 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc, per ESPN Stats & Information. Thirteen of those 19 shots were uncontested looks for a Cleveland team that generated a mere 12 uncontested shots off James passes through the first two games.
What’s more, James notched assists for seven different teammates, matching a season high.
I can tell you just from right off the top of my head, there was a lot of breakdown defensively for our group, Horford said. We didn’t have that the first two games. It’s something that we need to address and be better Monday if we want to have any sort of chance of winning.
