You ever had more fun watching a44% FT shooter throw 'em up in the 4th quarter like this? Hack-a-fro or Hack-a-row depending on his mood (whichever shade of bad the mood happens to be).

You see how beat that Boston bench looked at the end there? Once we got into the white flag of the hack-a-fro part of the evening? It was beautiful. KG with head in hands, sullen and defeated.

My God. I didn't want to post here during the game for fear of ruining our mojo (plus I was watching it on a bit of a delay), but that was fun. Cavs never trailed in the game. Not once. This team is so good it's scary.

Vintage LeBron in this one. He took over the game in every. single. aspect. This has to rank up there as one of his top 5 games overall. He was everywhere tonight.

And any time you send a Boston team packing with their hands over their eyes, it's a sweet team. Fuck that city, fuck those teams, and fuck those fans.

This game was won with 2:35 to go in the 3rd quarter. In a single possession, he blocked a layup on the defensive end, and hit a jumper with the foul on the ensuing offensive possession.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Boston got closer than 8 the rest of the way.

Total domination on defense. KG, Pierce, and Shuttlesworth couldn't buy a bucket. I fear I may be getting overenthusiastic, but that's Spurs / later years MJ defensive domination. Not to belittle Boston, either: They were almost as solid on D. They just couldn't stop the L-Train.

Yeah, this is hands down a top three LBJ all around performance, IMO.

He was simply incredible.

The Celtics have a lot of soul searching to do, they hit a rough patch last year like this, but not as bad.

Woot! And that was without Z and his 14 points / 10 boards. Boston is showing vulnerablility. Their bench blows. They get rattled on the road just like the ATL and CLE series' last playoffs. Cavs still need to get Z's size back. They were getting beat up without Ben in the game. But we are looking good with a 3 game cushion in the loss column baby.

Boston's bench has struggled lately, but tonight their problem was named Paul Pierce.

When he shoots 4-14 they lose.

If LBJ remains as focused on the defensive end as he is today then Paul Pierce can look forward to a few more of those nights should the two teams meet up in the playoffs.

LBJ is conceding nothing on the defensive end. There was a set in the 2nd period when Pierce got the ball on the right wing against LBJ. 23 bodied him, poked the ball away, bodied him, stopped his dribble. Pierce gives up the ball and 23 blocks the hurried shot as the clock wound down.

Terrific defensive sequence. I believe Mark Jackson said he'd show it to his team the next day at practice to reiterate the point.

Apparently I missed this:

Boston had to resort to fouling Ben Wallace to try to trim Cleveland's lead in the fourth, but the Hack-A-Ben strategy was hardly effective as Cleveland's forward, a 44 percent free-throw shooter, made 5-of-10 free throws after being fouled on five straight possessions.

When he was taken out, Wallace shot a menacing stare toward Boston coach Doc Rivers.


Probably deserves an article but you just can't discount what an active and healthy Wallace has meant to this team. He gives them a presence and a toughness that they've lacked since, well, for a long, long time. Jim Brewer long.

He was amped tonight. A couple extra inches on the vertical, focused, running his ass off, helping all over the court. Just a perfect role guy who might as well have "Do not fuck with us" tattooed on his forehead.

They've fed him the honorary first possession for the past month or so almost in deference or as an acknowledgment of his position on the club.

I'm really growing to like and appreciate the guy.
I just pray he stays healthy.

leave it to the espn talking heads to put a damper on things. before and after the game, mark jackson and jeff van gundy were asked who they thought were the best teams in the nba. only van gundy had the balls to give it to the cavs both before and after the game. jackson said it was the lakers both times. what a piece of shit. did he not just watch the cavs completely dominate the celtics for 4 quarters???

later on, at the half of the phoenix-dallas game, avery johnson and jamal mashburn were asked who the best player in the nba is and johnson said kobe and jamal said lebron is just as good as kobe, but didn't really say who was better. can somebody please tell me how many championships has kobe won since lebron came into the league??? um, zero. kobe is still living off the 3 titles he won as robin to shaq's batman. he ain't done shit since he's been by himself except make one trip to the finals just last year and it took the pau gasol trade (otherwise known as "the fleecing of memphis") for him to get there.

johnson went on to flap his extremely annoying jaws about how lebron playing with kobe in the olympics helped him to learn the importance of playing better defense. excuse me??? i think it has more to do with being coached by a defensive genius like mike brown and being around a hard-working cuss like ben wallace moreso than kobe "jelly-bean" bryant.

once again a cleveland team gets absolutely zero respect from the national media. fuck 'em, fuck 'em all. until such time that the cavs finally do win the title this year (and they will win it too) they will just continue to pull this kind of crap. i honestly think all it does is motivate lebron and the cavs even more. we can only hope. go cavs!!!

I thought if anything, his three point shot was helped out by Coach K. at the Olympics IMO. I do think that he was helped out a little by Coach K a bit, but Mike Brown has made this team more solid defensively, and has helped LeBron with that as well. Very pleased at what Brown has done with this team, and how Danny Ferry has built this team into the shape they are in today. Used to think those guys had no idea how to run an NBA team, Now I want the new upper management for the Browns to spend some time at the Q to see how a successful pro sports franchise is run.

Anyone here Van Gundy referring to the Memphis game as a possible trap? I don't think he used those words exactly but it certainly reminded of these game threads...

The only thing missing tonight was DJ as the hatchet man on KG. Whack him in his bald head a few times. Boston doesn't want to play physical. If you post up Ray Allen or Rajon Rondo they fold.

I would have loved to see Dan Gilbert watch the game. He was probably ecstatic.

Few things...

LBJ had an MVP performance. He was tremendous.

Ben Wallace won't get enough credit but he was super as well, he intimidates KG and I think the Celts have a real problem matching up with the Cavs moving forward. I felt like tonight was a statement game in that regard, maybe I am looking too much nto it but frankly the Celts have NO ONE that can match LBJ and they have tons of issues with their team. If this game were in Boston, same result. They must address some things.

I don't know why but I noticed that Delonte West was knocked early in the thread by some posters. No offense, but seriously? Watch a basketball game on both ends. He was tremendous with his off the ball defense on Allen and his communication to his teammates. Just a terrific job and there is a reason why things break down sometimes when he is out of the game. Him and Wallace were the unsung guys tonight beneath LBJ's mammoth performance.

Haha... to top off this night right, I decided to take a look at their game thread at RealGM (somebody posted a link of it before on this thread).

Favorite quotes include...

"Delonte West has been validated this year. Give the guy a consistent role and he steps up. I'm ready to concede that if LeBron can get THAT group to win 70 games then he must be the goat."

'Preciate that.

"Rondo triple double tonight. He owned Mo Williams in that first game."

Rondo absolutely nothing tonight.

"LeBron is so gay. Get up you freaking pansy. Quit holding your sissy face like you just got punched by Mike Tyson in your prime. What a girl..."

...who just scored 38 on you.

"You just knew that this game was over when Wallace scored 4 quick points. The bottom line is the the cavs are much better than they were last year and the celtics have significantly regressesd..."

I think that's an actual tactic that the coaching staff is using now... during big games, if the Cavs win the tip-off, hurry to the basket, give the ball to Ben, and see if he can score. The other team won't expect it, and if he does make it (which he did tonight), I'm sure it'll mentally sting the other team.

"3 seconds left in the Half----and Rondo gives the ball to Perk to create....WTF is wrong with our Point Guard----is he that stupid????"

Stupid... scared... you decide.

"This game looks clearly fixed."

K.

"So... third place at the end of tonight.... GREAT!!!! Nice job Danny and Wyc... Nice job assembling this team."

LOL.

"Burn in hell LeBron!!!!"

He may or may not... but until then...

"Seriously... **** this team... No heart, no defense ...open jumpers, uncontested dunks... The Raptors could play better defense...**** YOU ****!!! Keep losing fellas... maybe Ainge will wake the **** up and get rid of some of this flotsam(?)."

Tehe.

"C's body language is not good---and the other teams are like hyenas."

This one is my favorite.

Read on for yourselves...

I've heard this and read this a lot lately but NO ONE respects the defending champs...

Seriously, when D.J. Augustin is popping off about you, and frankly everyone else for that matter you have to evaluate your style. Intimidiation ain't working...(you hear my kg?)
