How to watch Game 2 of Cavs-Celtics

Will Cleveland go up 2-0 as the series heads back to Cleveland? After a dominant win in Wednesday’s Game 1, the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in action tonight. And Game 2 could set the tone for the rest of the series. If the Cavs are up 2-0 as the series heads back to Cleveland, the Celtics’ path to victory becomes even smaller. And, frankly. it’s already pretty slim. Game 1 showed, as we already probably already knew, that a lot has to go right for the Celtics to win. Boston is probably going to make some adjustments for Game 2. Considering he played the first five minutes in Game...

Cavaliers vs Celtics Game 2: Game preview, start time, and TV info

The Cavaliers look for a 2-0 lead leaving Boston. The Cavaliers completely demoralized the Raptors team and fanbase in their first two games in Cleveland. DeMar DeRozan has offered $100 to anybody who can stop LeBron, though honestly I think he was sort of low-balling everyone. You can do better than that, DeMar. The Raptors, on the court, might not be able to do better than that, but if they’re going to make this a series, not unlike last year, it’ll have to start in Game 3.

Shootaround (May 19) -- Isaiah Thomas, Boston Celtics not afraid of Cleveland Cavaliers

No. 1: Thomas: Celtics not 'scared' of Cavs -- Given the way the Cleveland Cavaliers dominated the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, one might think Boston is concerned about its chances in the series. That kind of mentality isn't allowed, though, not when the Celtics are led by a player with an underdog mentality in Isaiah Thomas. Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald has more on Boston's mentality as Game 2 nears tonight (8:30 ET, TNT):

After getting bully balled in Game 1, Celtics look to punch first

After getting bully balled in Game 1, Celtics look to punch first

The Celtics olé defense in Game 1 will have to improve if they have any chance to beat the Cavaliers in Game 2. 6’3, 6’6, 6’8, 6’10, 6’9. 5’9, 6’2, 6’6, 6’10, 6’9. That’s the tale of the tape between Boston and Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals. It’s even more accentuated when you look at the teams’ best players. Isaiah Thomas is lightning quick and can score inside and out, but bottle that speed up in a phone booth and it’s negated. LeBron James, on the other hand, is a moving train on a one-way track The Cavs have a distinct size and strength...

Expect big changes.That was the message Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was spreading on the parquet floor of the Garden yesterday as he prepared his team for tonight’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Celtics.The Cavaliers fully expect Celts coach Brad Stevens to make significant alterations to his game plan after Wednesday night’s one-dimensional, 117-104 loss in the series opener. The Cavs’ 13-point margin of victory did not adequately measure their domination.LeBron James was a steady presence around the rim and finished with 38 points while Kevin Love...

J.R. Smith says the Cavaliers should prepare for dirty play in Game 2

The Boston Celtics often toe the line between tough and dirty play, J.R. Smith says the Cavs should expect the worst. One thing you can always count on with the Cleveland Cavaliers is that if J.R. Smith has something on his mind, he’s going to say it. Following Wednesday’s blowout win over the Celtics, Smith says the Cavaliers should prepare for dirty play from Boston. Smith expressed his concern to Fox Sports Ohio: For them to come out swinging, playing scrappy like they do. They’ve been playing like that all year. Whenever their backs up against the wall, they tend to play better,...
