  • Celtics embrace underdog role against Cavaliers

Heck, sometimes they're probably all the above.

The Eastern Conference Finals series between the Celtics and the Cavaliers begins tomorrow with Game 1 taking place at the TD Garden in Boston. Stevens's egalitarian offensive system means Tatum won't be running iso after iso like James, but all of his scoring will be needed against the high-powered Cavs, who have the third-best offensive efficiency of all playoff teams. "You can't get him on the phone". "With as much respect as we have for IN, obviously, they took us to seven, I think defensively Boston is elite".

"Like, listen, that's two weeks away, and he hasn't played basketball yet".

It's a testament to a program they've been nurturing since he took over as coach five years ago. "They could be down 30 and they're going to be cheering like they're up 30". Not just for Smith, but will Green's consistent shooting become a reliable option during the Conference Finals? In fact, Love averaged a 20 and 10 for the series as he also scored 22.6 points a game. Same goes for the Pacers, who have seen their season end against James five of the past seven years, and the Hawks, who were swept by James in 2015 (when they won 60 games) and '16 before blowing up their roster.

But that was then and this is now. And few expected the Celtics to stick around long in the postseason, even after winning 55 games and claiming the No. 2 seed in the East. This time, Boston is No. 2 - and has an injured Irving - and Cleveland is No. 4. He also mentioned Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward being out has increased the narrative around Stevens and the Celtics.

Afterward, there were some people who agreed with the rapper's point since he hasn't been convicted of any of the charges yet. He settled multiple lawsuits with women, and was acquitted by a jury on charges of possessing child pornography.

I know everybody is curious about where things stand with my rehab.

Here is how you should be able to tell. They have a mobile 5 in Al Horford who can switch out and guard pick-and-rolls, guard multiple positions. For many of them, from the time they were in their early teenage years, right through college and the draft process, the idea of their greatness was reinforced and the necessity to be something better was a secondary thought. He's not gonna make every insane play every time down. But Simmons and Embiid, the two best players on the team, the two most important pieces collected by The Process, have basic, essential aspects of their games that can be improved.

"Our season has felt like four seasons". [Simmons] came up to me, showed me his hands, and said there's going to be a lot of rings. The Western Conference Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets might as well be the NBA Finals, since both teams would be huge favorites against either the Celtics or Cavaliers.

"He's obviously not like any other player", said Morris. Right now, I just love to see him be confident. "I'm happy that I played through it because we got the wins that we needed, but now it's good to get some rest and get ready for Cleveland". One of them is Tristan Thompson, who "treats every shot like a miss" according Cleveland coach Ty Lue. "You're just focused on what's next. You've got to have supreme confidence in yourself, what you do, in your teammates at this time of year". "Actions most times speak louder than words. We needed to stay healthy". James, throughout his career, has thrived with four shooters as his supporting cast, and as the team's sixth man, it's nearly a must that Green is respected from deep.

Over the years, since the days of Bill Russell (1957-69, i.e. 11 National Basketball Association titles in 13 years) John Havlicek-Dave Cowens-JoJo White (titles in 1974 and 1976) and Larry Bird (titles in 1981-84-86), the Celtics were invariably the title favorites - and they delivered. "We feel very confident with our second unit, playing them, going against whoever, Whether it's Cleveland, Indiana, whoever it is".
