Cavs Destroy Celtics 118-94, Series Tied 1-1

On Thursday night in Boston Massachusetts the Cleveland Cavaliers played the Boston Celtics in game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semi Finals best of seven series. Game 1 was dominated by the Boston Celtics winning by a score of 120-95. The Cavaliers have yet to win a playoff road game this post season. The question going into this game is will the Cavaliers be able overcome that trend?

The Cavaliers were again without C Jarrett Allen. He is still suffering from a rib injury. The Celtics were missing PF Kristaps Porzingis due to a calf injury. This game was expected to be an uphill battle for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland overcame an early 9-point 1st quarter deficit to lead at the end of the quarter 30-24.  The Celtics flipped the script in the 2nd quarter to tie the game at halftime 54-54. Evan Mobley led the Cavaliers in first half scoring with 15 points. The Celtics first half scoring leader was Jayson Tatum with 16 points. The Cavaliers stormed out in the second half and took control of the game. The third quarter ended with the Cleveland Cavaliers leading the Boston Celtics 90-78. Cleveland maintained control and pulled away from Boston to win the game by a score of 118-94. Donovan Mitchell led the Cavaliers in scoring with 29 points and Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 25 points.

Game 3 of this series is scheduled for Saturday May 11th at 7:30 pm eastern time in Cleveland. And Game 4 is scheduled for Monday May13th at 6:00 pm eastern time in Cleveland. The Cavaliers needed to split the first two games in Boston to have a chance of winning this series. The Cavaliers have yet to lose a home game this postseason. Rocket Mortgage Field House should be loud and rocking Saturday night. And the team will need all the help they can get. Not Having C Jarrett Allen has hurt this team. But the Cleveland Cavaliers are not making excuses. And neither are the Celtics. Because eventually either team will run out of excuses. This series is far from over and the next two games will be telling on how this series will go. It should be fun for the fans to watch and even more fun for the players to play.
