Marcus Morris Knows he can Defend LeBron James

2018 NBA Playoffs

They won't know who won until June 25 - after the season.

Sentinel and Enterprise staff photos can be ordered by visiting our SmugMug site. Teams have now gone 130-0 when leading 3-0.

SIX days of rest may have energized LeBron "King" James once more, restoring in all probability his venom that was essentially the chief ingredient in Cleveland dismissing in and Toronto in succession in the Cavs' march to the NBA Eastern Finals.

Morris ranked 78th out of 90 power forwards in ESPN's defensive real plus-minus and 75th among all forwards in defensive win shares this season, per NBA.com. "I think our guys have done a good job with that". They roll out, they'll have five guys out there at all times who all can play.

Windhorst said much will depend on what the Cavaliers do with the first-round draft pick they acquired from the Brooklyn Nets.

"Our guys really embrace that".

Here is how you should be able to tell.

Boston players know they have a tough challenge ahead in trying to slow down James. Tatum and second-year swingman Jaylen Brown are rising young stars and point guard Terry Rozier has emerged, filling in for Irving and winning over Boston fans. He's been in four straight playoffs. In 2010, he played his last game as a Cavalier before running to Miami. He joined Utah's Donovan Mitchell, who did it over the first two rounds for a Jazz team ousted by the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. Maybe Marcus Smart gets his chance. We weren't going to just let the teams come in and punk us. Even if they get swept, their injury-riddled campaign will still be viewed as a success.

"From our standpoint, I feel like it's been a lot of fun", he said. However, this time around, Tatum will be potentially be matched up against players like Jeff Green, James, and even potentially J.R Smith who has shown flashes of strong defensive play during the team's previous series against the Raptors.

ESPN Names MNF Broadcast Team
McFarland joins the Monday Night Football broadcast team after a strong run as an SEC Network/ESPN college football analyst. Tessitore replaces Sean McDonough , who is headed back to ESPN to again do play-by-play on college football games.

Jos Buttler powers Rajasthan to thrilling four-wicket win
Like Buttler mentioned in the post-match presentation, he did ride his luck as he was dropped thrice and once by Dhoni as well. Dhoni is seventh on the run-getters list with 360 runs that include three half-centuries with 79 not out being the highest.

The numbers this season don't really back up Morris' claim.

Added Rozier: "We understand he's gonna make some insane plays". This is the story of the five teams hurt the most from James' dictatorship in the Eastern playoffs.

"It's like night and day". Morris thinks he can defend the king just fine.

"I think a lot of our guys have been thrown into the fire". I'm ready to go out there and play. "Me being a leader, I know he's there, so I'm gonna use that to my advantage". A lot better today. "I never would have imagined that would happen". He was great against Cleveland this season while he was coming off the bench. He's not gonna make every insane play every time down.

"Yeah, that's not happening", Celtics President Danny Ainge said. I didn't see no physicality, I didn't see any of that.

"Like, listen, that's two weeks away, and he hasn't played basketball yet". You add them, look at all that history. "You're just focused on what's next". To that end, things have gone very well. We gotta be mentally locked in and have a mindset to try and do the best we can.

Hayward was back in Boston while the Celts were in Philadelphia for Games 3 and 4 and is returning this weekend. They're well-coached. Despite all the circumstances of guys getting hurt with Kyrie out, with Gordon being out for the whole year, they just keep plugging guys in and keep playing. "This is what we worked all year for".

With the semifinals in both the Eastern and Western Conferences finishing quickly, we've had a few days without playoff basketball. He will wear all kinds of Celtic gear - except a game uniform.
