Skip Bayless Delivers Brutal Shot to LeBron James After Game 2 Loss

Cavaliers Headlines2018 NBA Draft Lottery Cavs earn eighth overall pick David Liam Kyle  NBAE via Getty Images

Tune in for Game 3 in Cleveland, as the Cavs to even the odds on home soil.

Cleveland was very bad in Game 1, much like they were against in in the opening round of the playoffs.

They are finding life in the playoffs is more hard without Irving, who at times carried Cleveland's offense, giving James a break and Lue a dependable second scoring option.

The moves worked as Thompson provided needed energy and Korver knocked down four 3-pointers and had Boston's defense focused on more than James.

They were a team with mental lapses and a maddening neglect for attention to detail that led to nonstop eye-rolling, finger-pointing and palm-raising. Boston mounted a mini comeback at the end of the first half and picked up right where they left off to start the third quarter. As they are 1-4 on the road this postseason, including three road loses to the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round.

But was it really?

Irving's skills as a spot-up shooter who also can beat his man in isolation made him a formidable weapon for Cleveland in the regular season and the playoffs, and now the Cavaliers are having problems with both of those play types. Those shots falling, the Cavaliers were brimming with confidence.

"In the third quarter, we had some miscommunication on defence and they scored some easy baskets". Hopefully it's the former and they can get it together and put forth a good effort in Game 3. He scored 13 of Cleveland's last 15 points to go in with 21 at the first break, but tellingly, his side only lead by four points. That added up to an offensive rating of just 91. "We were awful defensively. We've got one another's backs, that's it".

We don't even know if this is a good or bad thing for the Cavaliers at this point. The guard logged zero points on 0-for-7 shooting. The rotations were nonexistent and the closeouts weren't remotely energetic enough. They also didn't have to give in to Irving's trade demands, no matter how strong the threat appeared at the time. The Celtics conceded just one open look to him in the entire contest, per ESPN's Rachel Nichols. No Kevin Love, who had a double-double and looked more comfortable in his natural power forward position. The play below signifies just how en fuego James was in the first period, as Marcus Smart defended him as well as you could possibly imagine, forcing the ball out of his hands, before bodying him out to the three point line with the shot clock about to expire.

Smart lunged at Smith after the Cavs player shoved an airborne Al Horford in the back as the Celtics took a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series on Tuesday at the TD Garden.

If James has his bags packed, it makes no sense for the Cavaliers to flip that pick for a win-now player with fewer years of team control remaining.

"We're going to see", James said, "what we're made of on Saturday". "They played no defense whatsoever". "They're being physical. They're gooning the game up, and we've got to do the same thing". In Game 2, Boston showed their resiliency as they rallied for a 107-94 win to take a 2-0 series lead. "We gotta be tougher mentally and physically".
