Boston's balanced attack was effective again, with six players reaching double figures.
Things started off great for the Cavs, as LeBron James took over in the first quarter, scoring 21 points over the first 12 minutes of action. But Boston outscored Cleveland by 14 in the third quarter to turn its seven-point deficit into an 84-77 lead.
James, who committed seven turnovers on his way to a minus-32, spent the final minutes of Game 1 watching the Cleveland substitutes run out the clock. And the Celtics didn't let up in the fourth, ensuring a 2-0 lead as they head back to Cleveland.
"The foul was called on Al Horford, he goes and makes two, we don't score and kind of sent it back to a 10-point game after that".
Tensions boiled over when Cleveland's JR Smith shoved Horford on a drive to the basket.
Some of Boston's key contributors like Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier III, Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart, were all held without a point in the first.
Smith was issued a grade one flagrant foul, while both he and Smart were issued technical fouls.
It wasn't about how LeBron James would respond after a quiet 15-point effort as the Boston Celtics rolled in the opener. None? Where the hell is Kevin Love? The Cavaliers consistently got beat inside during the opening game of the series and opted for Thompson's defense.
GETTYLeBron James was 16-for-29 on field goals attempts
After Game 1 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, the question was whether the team-first strategy of the Celtics could withstand the LeBron onslaught. The Celtics led by 28 when Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue pulled James for good with 7:09 left.
Jeff Green drilled a three-pointer with 42 seconds remaining in the second quarter to put the Cavaliers up 11 - 55-44 - as Boston's crowd sat silent. I think there's a power in being naive, too.
Jayson Tatum repeatedly pushed off on James in the first half and James took a shot to the face/jaw from the Celtics rookie that forced James to the locker room with a neck strain with 3:48 left in the second quarter.
In the first-round series against the Indiana Pacers, the Cavs struggled offensively. "We've got to be tougher, mentally and physically".
So explosive most nights, their consistency on offense allowed them to overcome and enter the playoffs with a refreshed attitude despite pitiful defensive habits and an overall lack of toughness and objective at that end of the floor.
"I think we just have a group of guys that really believe in each other", Horford said.
Who is most likely to win the 2018 NBA Championship? They're gooning the game up, and we've got to do the same thing.
The Celtics finished the night shooting 43.5 percent from the field, while knocking down 10-of-31 from deep.
