The Celtics now lead the Cavaliers 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, but Many are wondering if things will be all knotted up after two upcoming games in Cleveland. But we want to win and we want to beat a team that does win and get to the finals.
Smith continued, saying that it's up to Cleveland's role players to earn LeBron's trust. And with that said, we have to give him the opportunity for us to make him feel confident to give us the ball so we can make the right plays. We've got to help.
If LeBron's confidence in Smith has wavered, it'd be understandable.
James is averaging 28.5 points (on 46.7 percent shooting), 10.5 assists and 8.5 rebounds in the conference finals - slightly down from the first two rounds of the playoffs but generally in line with his career postseason averages. Not a performance worthy of his "Swish" nickname. He said the Celtics gooned it up on the Cavaliers in the first two games of the series.
So as the Cavs took the court for the fourth quarter with the Celtics still well within striking distance, it came as a surprise to many that not only LeBron James, but also Kevin Love, remained on the Cleveland bench. "I thought we rushed shots and we got down six or seven [points] and started playing like we were down 25".

Lue used the film session to key in on communication breakdowns by the Cavs' defense. They are just 1-4 away from their building and seen their shooting numbers dip to 41 per cent overall and 31 per cent from beyond the arc. "I mean, we all got strengths and weaknesses". At the end of the day they've got a lot of guys that have been there, done that. This is for all the marbles. "It's point-blank, simple. So if we're not all communicating - all five of us - we got no chance".
But after boasting the third-best road record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season, the Celtics have looked like a totally different team since the post-season began. They were down 0-2 to the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, won Game 3 at home, lost Game 4 at The Q and then won the next three games to become NBA champions. In NBA history, teams that fall down 3-0 in a seven-game series are 0-131.
The conclusion from practice on May 17 in Independence: All eight or nine players who get into Game 3 on May 19 at Quicken Loans Arena are going have to do their fair share of rowing the boat or the Cavaliers are going to capsize quickly. We just got to approach it like it's new. "We're only four out of 15".
