Eastern Conference Finals: Celtics vs. Cavs Game 2 Preview And Prediction

Isaiah Thomas was a non-factor, scoring just two points on 0-for-6 shooting before leaving the game with a strained right hip at halftime, but he also wasn't getting that much help from his teammates anyway.

While it was an all-around ugly first-half performance for Boston, Thomas particularly struggled. The Cavs' lead hit the 50 point mark when Deron Williams hit a layup with 9:59 to play in the fourth quarter. "I've got to come out and compete just like he has to come out and compete".

Rookie Jaylen Brown scored 19 to lead Boston.

This was the worst possible scenario for Boston; going down 2-0, an embarrassing defeat (franchise worst home loss) and their star player suffering an injury which may linger through to the rest of the possibly brief series. "We're in a good groove as a team, and we want to try to continue that going home".

But against the Celtics, you would think they had a team of Kawhi Leonards or something the way they absolutely stone-walled Boston at every turn. "We were poor. You've got to be able to pick up the slack, certainly, when other guys aren't available".
