THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

Pretty amazing win last night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Cleveland crushed Boston 130-86. The Cavaliers take a 2-0 lead in the series. They have now won 13 straight playoff games.

LeBron James was amazing once again. 30 points on 12-18 shooting from the floor. 7 assists in 32 minutes. James was a +45 on the night.

“My only job is to be the MVP of this team every night,” said James.

Always play the right way…

DOC RIVERS – ONWARD!

On the past…Celtics to Clippers:

“I can tell you I’ve given that like zero thought, and I’m being completely honest with you. To me, I had an amazing nine-year ride in Boston, and I’m so thankful for that, but I’m not greedy. . . . I guess we all are in life, but I don’t look at it in those terms. I really haven’t. Everything would be neat. (Expletive), it would be neat to be the coach of Golden State right now, you know what I mean? But I’m not, and I’m very happy with where I am. I don’t look back like that at things. I’m a guy that keeps pushing. That’s just me.”

WARRIORS 106 JAZZ 94

Last night Golden State jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the Western conference semi-finals, best-of-seven series.

”We picked up right where we left off,” Steph Curry said. ”We weren’t clicking making shots early on but our defense really gave us an opportunity to find that flow, and that’s what you need in the playoffs.”

In a rare occurrence, Golden State did not out-shoot their opponent from way downtown.

Utah shot 9-29 and Golden State connected on 7-29. Don’t see that often but what you do see is the assists; Warriors dished out 32, Utah 25. GS turned it over 7 times, Jazz, 13.

Warriors have more “30 assists” games than anyone. I think they mentioned on TNT last night only the Lakers from way back in the day (80’s) have as many as Golden State in one season.

THE GAME I WILL NEVER FORGET

Boston beat Washington in OT last night 129-119. The Celtics now lead the best-of-seven, Eastern conference semi-finals 2-0.  Isaiah Thomas dropped 53 points.  John Wall of Washington scored 40 points and dished out 13 assists.

”It’s nice to be in Celtics history with all the great players,” Thomas said. ”But until you win a championship, you can’t consider yourself a great player. That’s what it’s all about.”

Always remember, share the ball, hit the open man and protect the ball…

AVERY BRADLEY

On defending:

“That’s what I play this game for: to go up against the best players. I know I haven’t been out there in a while, but hopefully I can still be mentioned for first-team all-defense. It’s something I take pride in. Every single chance I get, I love going up against the Kyries, the Russell Westbrooks, all of those guys.”
