Cleveland has entered Boston and won both games to begin this series decisively. The Cavs crushed Boston in Game 2 by the score of 130-86 covering the spread as a five point favorite. That is a 44 point victory on the road in the Eastern conference finals. Cleveland held a lead of at least 50 in this game. Many were critical of the Boson Celtics for not making a move at the trading deadline feeling they were just one player away from beating the Cavaliers in the East. It looks like the Celtics are at least three players away because this undersized team has struggled defending LeBron James and Kevin Love. In Game 2 the Cavaliers shot 56.5% and they made 19 of 39 three pointers. Boston is leaving many of the Cavaliers players open for good looks as they focus their attention on James. Issue is the Cavaliers are hitting their shots while the Boston Celtics who are also being handed soft defense by Cleveland is failing to make their wide open shots. To make matters worse for the Celtics lost their shooting guard Isaiah Thomas has been ruled out for the remainder of the playoffs due to a hip strain. During the regular season with Thomas out for stretches due to injuries, Boston struggled getting balls into the basket. Now they need to look to Jae Crowder and Avery Bradly. It was a horrid shooting night for Bradley in Game 4 with 13 points on 6 of 17 shooting from the floor. Crowder was 3 of 9. With the victory the Celtic are a perfect 10—0 in the playoffs.
