National Basketball Association teams that win the first two games of a best-of-seven series have gone on to win their series 95 percent of the time.
"Turnovers and not defending full shot clock, especially in that third quarter", said James.
Jaylen Brown scored 23 points and Boston withstood a 42-point night by James to beat Cleveland, 107-94, on May 15 and take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. They're 9-0 at home this postseason, and if the Cavs can't snap that streak, their season will be over.
Add it all up and the Cavs' current series with the Celtics marks the seventh time in James' career his team has fallen down 0-2 in the playoffs.
We've seen this from LeBron James before: When the odds are against him, he plays it cool. Still, he wasn't almost as impactful in the second half as the Celtics pulled away for a 107-94 win. "If we win, that's all that matters".
The sequence lit a fuse that had been dampened by the first-quarter offensive barrage of a clearly motivated LeBron James. A ideal snapshot of that was the first quarter, when James scored 21 of his 42 points in the opening period and Cleveland led by just four, 27-23.
But he didn't seem to play with the same force after straining his neck in a first-half collision and the Cavaliers wilted in the second half, with the Celtics outscoring them 59-39. "But I don't think it - it didn't affect my game after that". "He went out. I don't think Jayson was intentionally trying [to hurt James]". A year later, Cleveland once again fell behind the Pistons 0-2 - this time in the conference finals - before reeling off four straight wins to advance to the NBA Finals, where they faced another 0-2 deficit en route to being swept by the San Antonio Spurs.

As expected, Tristan Thompson started in place of Kyle Korver in the hopes his presence could energize what was a sluggish Cavs offense in Game 1.
With James on the bench, Semi Ojeleye got the line for two and Greg Monroe scored inside for an 11-point lead with 11:14 to go. But starters Thompson, JR Smith and George Hill combined for just 11 points on 5-of-17 shooting.
With less than four minutes remaining at TD Garden and Boston leading by eight points, J.R. Smith pushed Al Horford in the back while he was attempting to finish an alley-oop.
Cleveland was then able to stretch the gap to 11 twice late in the half before the Celtics finished with a flurry as a pair of Morris baskets bringing Boston within 55-48 at the break.
