The Boston Celtics received Recreation 1 of the Jap Convention Finals in blowout style on Sunday afternoon. It was a recreation that didn’t spark any actual memorable moments, probably as a result of Boston’s protection basically smothered the Cavaliers and compelled them into dangerous photographs and taking part in from behind all recreation.
It didn’t assist that Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue insisted on taking part in his worst rotation in an important second of the sport, leaving little for a resting LeBron James to return to within the fourth quarter. However Recreation 1 is Recreation 1, and as James says it’s a sequence, not March Insanity. Which means an opportunity to modify issues up, which it seems the Cavaliers will do it Recreation 2.
Lue spoke to reporters on Monday after the blowout Recreation 1 loss and stated adjustments would doubtless be coming to the beginning lineup when the sequence picks again up on Tuesday night time.
Including Thompson again into the combination extra persistently may very well be a lift on each ends of the ground, and in accordance with the Boston Globe, Lue stated he was ready for issues to formally break earlier than making a change.
“We weren’t going to regulate till somebody beat us,” Lue stated. “And we had performed nicely with that lineup and it bought us up to now so, sure, we’ve to weigh that call.”
With all this discuss stoppers within the early motions of the sequence, even Lue had an opportunity to have some enjoyable with the idea with regard to Horford and Thompson.
“Trying on the statistics, during the last three years of a minimum of 30 possessions, out of all the fellows who’ve guarded Al Horford, Tristan is No. 1 within the league defending Al Horford,” Lue stated, smiling cheekily. “In order that’s a superb factor to know.”
It feels like issues are fairly gentle in Cavaliers camp regardless of the disappointing begin to the sequence. We’ll see if issues keep that method in the event that they wrestle once more on Tuesday night time, although.
