Former Cavaliers player makes big statement about Cavs struggles Video

It's the continuation of the Eastern Conference Finals as the series shifts to the shores of Lake Erie.

Maybe there will be more nauseous moments ahead, but for now, Tuesday night, May 15, 2018, stands as the 180-degree opposite of Tuesday night, October 25, 2016.That night 19 months ago, the Cavaliers accepted their NBA Championship rings as the Indians hosted Game 1 of the World Series - a title appreciated and a title anticipated.More than a handful of fans left The Q and walked the 97 steps to the gates of Progressive Field to embrace both moments, at least one calling it the best night of her life. Boston built off their strong showing in the conference semifinals as they pummeled Cleveland en route to a 108-83 win in Game 1 to draw first blood in the series.

For the third straight series, Boston has taken care of the first two games and now climb to 9-0 at home in the playoffs. They took over in the second half and won Game 2 convincingly.

Nance, meanwhile, has recorded a DNP in two postseason contests and has averaged 4.0 points in 14.6 minutes in the other 11 playoff games. Boston has been solid at the charity stripe as they sink 77.1 percent of their chances. Boston held LeBron James to just 15 points in their 25-point Game 1 victory. I felt like we played great defense, but the foul was called on Al Horford. That sort of scoring balance (Aron Baynes chipped in nine) is the difference between the two teams in this series. They share the ball and they play tough defense. Cleveland did exactly that: for a half. The Boston Celtics are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game.

Kyle Korver came off the bench to score 11 points but starters Tristan Thompson, JR Smith and George Hill combined for just 11 points in the loss.

"At the time, I just wanted to be a kid". That point becomes moot, though, when you throw in a simple fact: When the Cavs traded Irving, he was a top-10 or top-12 player who was coming off his most prolific season. Cavs team-mate Kevin Love added 22 points and 15 boards. He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking. The Boston Celtics have lost seven of their last eight road games. Sometimes they focus on things that don't matter, and the other times they focus on that he impacts winning.

India threatens to take Nawaz Sharif's statement to ICJ
India blamed the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) for the 2008 attack on the city of Mumbai. Nawaz Sharif , in a recent interview to a newspaper, had said, "Militant organisations are active".

"We've got to come and give energy, extraordinary energy all the time, and I just try to be that spark plug". Players like J.R. Smith, Rodney Hood, and Jeff Green need to play better at home if the Cavaliers want to turn this series around. The Cavs have been broken by the grit and grind of the Celtics and now find themselves in an 0-2 hole.

"We have the opportunity to go back home and take home court", he said.

Basically, Cowherd argues, folks will forget soon enough if the Cavs are eliminated by the Celtics, whereas James will be criticized for the foreseeable future if Cleveland advances to the NBA Finals and gets demolished by either the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets.

Now facing an 0-2 deficit, it appears the Cleveland Cavaliers will remain at full strength when they return to face the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday.
