    I like how LeBron just stops playing when he loses the ball.

    Just skip the entire season next year. Have them play the finals over the holidays.
    Lance is finally home. Whether he becomes our starting PG or he's 6th man, he's getting big minutes and he's here to stay. #llortontnia

    Wasn't that Atlanta team down a starter due to police malfeasance? Specifically the guy they hoped would check LeBron.

    I've started to really appreciate watching LeBron. He's just incredible.

    Boston can't buy an open shot. And they're getting plenty of them.
    Olynyk realizing this isn't Washington. Having a shaky start

    Boston is committed to keeping Cleveland off the 3 point line. No help at all on lebron. We'll see how that plays out.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Even at his age and after all those miles, the game is still so easy for him

    I'm starting to feel the same way even though I still don't enjoy his game.

    Ye olde, "let LeBron have his and take everyone else out of the game" strategy. Bron's too smart for that folly.

    Well, it sort of takes lebron out of the equation. He's gong to get his but they won't allow the their shooters to get a rhythm.

    I think they're gambling lebron will get tired eventually.

    I mean, yah, have at it. Don't think it's going to work but I'm also not sure what they can do that would work.

    Really thought Boston's best chance to win was tonight. Cleveland has been off for 9 days, Celtics have momentum, playing at home, good feelings all around after the lottery, but alas, no.

    On the contrary they look like they have dead legs.

    They've missed more wide open threes in this half than I think they missed all series against Washington.

    This game should tell this board even PG isn't going to close the gap. Gotta keep the pick and keep building

    Actually, they could really use his scoring and his defense to keep LeBron out of the paint. LeBron is slicing up their defense, and they took IT out of the game.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    I would argue 1/15 from behind the arc took them out of the game.

    Marcus Smart is a strong dude and Bron just abused him. There's just nothing you can do.

    Either way, the Celtics could use a playoffs Paul George.
