Marcus Morris on Tyronn Lue's 'gooning' charge: 'We're doing what it takes'

Celtics withstand James' huge night

Rozier raced to the loose ball at halfcourt and took off.

His bandaged right wrist should serve as a reminder of recent surgery, but that does not seem to cross Smart's mind when he belly-flops onto the leather shoes of the Cleveland Cavaliers coaches.

On Sunday afternoon, the Boston Celtics were able to take game 1 of their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Raptors fans were clearly frustrated by how easy it looked for them to execute against the team that had dispatched Toronto with relative ease.

Cavs forward Jeff Green subbed in temporarily for James, who returned to the contest with 1:57 remaining in the second quarter. "You go out and when you lay everything on the line, at the end of the day, you can live with that", he said.

Smith was 0-for-7 shooting (0-4 on 3-pointers) and committed a flagrant foul in the fourth quarter.Jaylen Brown is torching JR tonight, 20-0Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown have a combined 33 points tonight: counterparts George Hill and JR smith have 3.

"That's what Smart does, man".

"That's a dirty shot", Smart said. Boston's third-quarter surge produced decibel levels on par with that seen in the Celtics' Game 2 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in which the team overcame a 22-point deficit and later raved about the noise inside the building. The results were mostly good, and Smart finished with nine assists and zero turnovers.

After falling short against the Celtics in the second round of the playoffs, the Sixers will regroup with their young core while looking to bolster their stocks with lucrative free-agents.

The Celtics also engaged in some extracurricular activities after Tristan Thompson fouled Morris in the third quarter and Morris screamed in Thompson's face while both forwards were still on the floor, all of which led to the two needing to be separated.

"You know, that was big for us", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said of James' setback. "They can't protect themselves".

"I felt like it was uncalled for that type of play there", Horford said. He was trying to make a basketball play, it just happened.

This instinct to protect has been in Smart's DNA since childhood. We're playing hard. We got each other's backs.

Once James leaves, now with every reason to prove the city he's done all the heavy-lifting during this postseason - the team will be riddled with an endless list of bad contracts, one which will hurt the franchise for the near future and likely kill any chances of regaining prominence until those sour salaries are off the books. Some nights not being to be able to eat.

"I think I'll be fine".
