Just because the Celtics greatly outperformed the Cavs Sunday afternoon certainly does not mean that they will do the same Tuesday night. "The other guys, obviously, (Kevin) Love and J.R. Smith, we don't want to give them open looks".
"We come back down, miss another shot, and then Tatum came down, went 94 feet, did a Eurostep and made a right-hand layup". "That's unacceptable. Us bigs, we should be pissed off about that just because our job is to protect the paint, so we've got to do a better job of that".
Baynes, the 31-year-old Queenslander, has been using the experience he gleaned from being part of the 2014 San Antonio Spurs' championship-winning team to help guide an injury-ravaged Celtics squad relying on the talented but inexperienced Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier.
LeBron James was certainly passive and a lot of the Cavaliers' misfortune was due to the Cavaliers missing uncontested three-point attempts and going down big on the scoreboard early. Players like Shane Larkin, Semi Olejeye, and Marcus Smart make it possible for Coach Stevens to sub out the starters and let them rest for long periods of times. "Just being aggressive and making the right play. They will have to do that again Tuesday".
But Boston beware. LeBron is notorious for bouncing back in impressive fashion, like dropping 45 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in Game 7 against the shell-shocked Pacers just a couple weeks ago. He blocked two shots but also made 7 turnovers.
"Them dudes can't guard", said Morris, according to The Washington Post's Candace Buckner. After all, when facing the same team that opposed him in last year's conference finals-and one the Cavs played three times in the regular season this year-what mysteries are there to unravel? "It's about us trying to answer that challenge and finding a new level defensively as well". "We didn't play well". If he can come close for a series, good things can happen for the Boston Celtics. "So for them to see that, and have that feeling like we did tonight, is huge". "We had some great shots we couldn't make and it snowballed from there". Center Al Horford dropped 20 points in the win, starting a ideal 7-of-7 from the field, and finished with six assists, four rebounds and two blocks. Game 2's going to be very important.

It was James' worst postseason performance in recent memory, with the Celtics holding the Cavaliers' superstar to 15 points and forcing him into seven turnovers.
"Horford's a very good player; he's an All-Star", Thompson told McMenamin. "He knows how to defend".
KevinLove finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds for Cleveland.
"I think as a team, 1 through 5, we've got to all play tougher", Thompson said.
It was a disaster with the Celtics never headed after jumping to a 29-9 lead in the first quarter. Boston went on a 17-0 run midway through the period. Seeing action in nine of 12 playoff games, Thompson is averaging 5.2 points and 5.1 rebounds, with 24 of his 46 boards coming on the offensive end. The young Celtics got off to a quick start in game 1, and completely dismantled the veteran Cavaliers. Numerous key members of the 76ers roster are new to playing in the postseason, including their two stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. In contrast, the Celtics managed 33 points from 3-pointers, going a solid 11-for-30 from beyond the arc.
