Published

on

Lebron James had an all-time great historic night in Boston. Scoring 21 points in the first quarter and ending the night with 42 points. But it still wasn’t enough, as the Celtics took the series lead 2-0 with a 107-94 victory.

The C’s trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half, but a strong second half in which they outscored Cleveland 59-39 paced them to victory. Jaylen Brown led Boston with 23 points.

Terry Rozier added 18 points, while Al Horford finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

“We’re going to fight,” Rozier said. “At this point we don’t care if we win by half a point. If we win, that’s all that matters.”

James did it at all in the TD Garden with a 40 point triple-double night. He scored 42 points with 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It was James fifth postseason game of his career. After the game, he tried to remain positive after the loss.

“They did what they had to do, and that was protect home” said James “Now it’s our time to try to do that, as well.”

The Cavs will face the Celtics again on Saturday Night.

Jalen Rose Walks Off Set Over Jordan Vs Lebron

Published

on

The debate over Jordan versus Lebron will be one talked about forever. No matter where you go. For some, there is no debate, Jordan all day. For others, Lebron hands down.

Jay Williams joined Get Up! to make the point that in 1 on 1, he would give Lebron the advantage.

“You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike. In a one-on-one game, LeBron James, 6-9, 260 pounds — if the game was to seven, I think LeBron would win 7-3. You can talk about his mentality, but we’re not talking about five-on-five basketball, J-Rose. We’re not talking about the passive LeBron, making the right play … LeBron James is 6-9, 260, he moves like a guard! He moves like a guard. He defends like a guard.”

Jalen responded with the classic Jordan comeback.

“Michael Jordan was all-defensive first team nine times. LeBron James was five times. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring ten times. Ten! LeBron James led the league in scoring once. I’m talking about a guy whose been the best offensive player AND the best defensive player.”

“To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I’m in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it’s pretty cool,” James said. “You hear the scoring, the field goals made, and for a kid that really doesn’t care much about scoring.”
