Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss

Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss

J.R. Smith had an ugly performance. Sometimes, teamwork does the job just as well.

Things got heated in the fourth quarter of the Celtics' 94-107 Game 2 win after JR Smith shoved an airborne Al Horford in the back. Cavs team-mate Kevin Love added 22 points and 15 boards. Cleveland is now 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games overall against Eastern Conference opponents, they are 0-6 ATS in their last six games played on three days or more rest and 2-11 ATS on Saturday this season.

The Celtics, on the other hand, used a balanced attack as six players reached double figures.

Though James has overcome 2-0 series deficits twice before-in the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals against the Detroit Pistons and the 2016 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors-it's hard to muster much confidence in the Cavaliers moving forward.

But he will be eating his words now, as he slipped to a rather anticlimactic defeat against a young, hungry, hustling Boston Celtics that does not back down from a fight. James finished Game 2 with 42 points, but had to work for almost all his buckets.

"We need tremendous focus". Not to mention the Cavaliers have the best player on the planet in LeBron James who loves to defy history.

James was hitting a lot of hard shots, so the Celtics embraced that as much as possible, and waited for James to eventually come back to earth. And they took the lead for good with a long, catch-and-shoot 3 from Smart with 4:34 to go in the period. His 42 points marked his fifth 40-point game of this postseason.

James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 64 points in game one but it was not enough, as the Golden State Warriors came away with a 119-106 win.

"We have the opportunity go back home and take home court", James said. "They did what they had to do and that was protect home, and now it's our time to try to do that as well". "They're being physical. They're gooning the game up, and we've got to do the same thing".

"We compete. It's Celtics basketball". Of course LeBron is going to put up those numbers and what not, but if we don't get stops on the defensive end, they're going to make open 3s and they're going to have rhythm and their guys are going to feel good.

"Jaylen started the game on him, (Marcus) Morris is guarding him a ton".

"I blatantly pushed him".

New boss Steven Gerrard told the club website: "I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season".

The Cavaliers sagged in the second half, where they were outscored 59-39 and that did not please their coach Tyronn Lue.

A year ago, Kyrie Irving averaged 25.8 points in the Cavs' five-game rampage over the Celtics in the conference finals.

Points Boston scored off Cleveland's 15 turnovers.

"[Smith has] taken big shots", Lue said, which is as true of Korver as it is of Smith.

Saying "we all believe" that Smart is going to make his shots is a bit of a stretch.
