Eastern Conference Finals Game 2 on ESPN

Just like Pepperidge Farm Le Bron James remembers

Despite the fact that Cleveland has LeBron James, and despite the fact that Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward are hurt, Boston improbably has a 2-0 series lead on the Cavs after a 107-94 win in Game 4.

Game 1 was an absolute nightmare for the Cavs by just about every measure. After a roster overhaul and two devastating injuries, Boston wasn't expected back in the Eastern Conference Finals for the second year in a row.

Tuesday's game got physical as the Celtics pulled out all the stops to try and contain James.

Korver, Smith and Hill scored a combined 14 points for the game, Love was outplayed by Baynes and Horford, while Morris lived up to his pre-game talk of his ability to defend James. During his three seasons watching James upon the latter's return to the franchise from Miami, Griffin was a witness to many key moments that were led by the superstar, including winning the 2016 National Basketball Association championship.

Today, he's rebranded himself as a populist outsider who will fight corruption and Iran's interference in Iraqi affairs. It may be Abadi, Reuters reports, who has signaled a willingness to work with Sadr to form a working government.

James was sensational in the first quarter, scoring 21 points.

The Boston Celtics' experience deficit as compared to their current Eastern Conference opponent, the Cleveland Cavaliers, is well-documented.

After drilling another two free throws, Horford came right back and scored another bucket.

BOSTON The Celtics punched the Cavaliers first and never looked back in rolling to a Game 1 rout.

Iran signed the nuclear deal in 2015 with the United States, as well as Britain, China , France, Germany and Russian Federation . Earlier in the week, France, Germany and the United Kingdom expressed "regret and concern" over the US' withdrawal.

Here we are again, watching a surprising Celtics team continue to show the world they can compete with anybody, even the King himself. One positive aspect is that Game 3 won't take place until Saturday night, which will allow him a few extra days to more fully recover from whatever final outcome is determined. The teams below them on that list - Chicago, Indiana, Philadelphia and Phoenix - are a mix of lottery-bound and mid-level playoff squads. James had just 15 points and missed all five of his 3-point attempts in the Cavs' Game 1 loss.

The team also outscored Cleveland by 20 points in the second half.

"But you've just got to give credit to Coach (Stevens), because he ends up making adjustments. whichever the matchup is, and giving us those options to go out there and execute on offense". "When he thought he had driving lanes, they made him kick it out to other shooters". Today was a tremendous effort on one of the biggest stages we've all played on. We know we have to play better. It will be a different environment out in Cleveland; we will have to wait and see if the Cavs fans can match Beantown's energy and passion. They attacked us early on.
