FUDU wrote:Possibly the strangest LeBron performance ever. Almost completely uninterested in the game for 24 minutes if not 36. Yet ends up with 35/7/7/2, a historical stat sheet. WTF was going on ?Is he hurt, has he reached the point of his actualization that he feels he only needs his team to hold on then play hard for 10 minutes? He was almost completely uninvolved in the first 3 quarters signifying his elbow is F'd up. But after his 4Q performance one has to ask, was it planned, if so by him, Mike Brown (LMAO), WTF happened? One thing is certain, he blanketed Pierce, who was almost invisible all game outside of the first 4 possessions.It was the quietest 35/7/7 in NBA history...and what does Boston take from this? Did they give their best shot and still fall short by nearly 10 pts, if so b/c of LeBron, our depth....? If LeBron needs time off on the court then have him play PG , especially when a Mo is hot. Mo hitting threes without having to work for them is WAY better then Mo having to work for his game, every single time. West played great, Mo stepped up when LBJ was napping, but why did LeBron make it come to that?

waborat wrote:Could...not...agree...more...I was saying the same thing throughout the game to everyone around me last night...I won't say LBJ looked disinterested last night, because he didn't, but something just didn't feel the same watching him? It was a very "quiet" performance for him though...Afterwards, I said to our friends about it being one of his meekest 30 pt games ever and that's when my buddy said he ended with 35...go figureWe watched him return to the bench during every time out and it wasn't like he was messing with his elbow either, so I don't buy that one...As crazy as it sounds, it felt more like James is now writing the scripts for these games...sheer brillance As far as Boston goes, they look like the Cavs did over the past years with their shallow bench...When 35 +/- year olds gotta play 40 minutes a game then you're in big trouble...When Mo can breakaway and slam in your face there's trouble...The Cavs totally shut down the lane in the 2nd half and forced Boston to shoot from outside the rest of game...If they play defense the way that they're capable of then this series shouldn't go more than 5...Whether the Chosen One feels strange or not

Prosecutor wrote:"Interesting how the perimeter was so key in this game for both teams. What was the stat near the end of 3, we only had 7 attempts and we average 19 with 7 makes, credit Boston for that strategy (it was working)."I'm not so sure the Celtics were responsible for the paucity of 3-point shots. Big Baby got three quick fouls on him and other Celtic bigs were racking up fouls as well. I got the impression the Cavs wanted to pound it inside to get in the bonus and get the Celtic bigs in deeper foul trouble. Also, it looked like LeBron was making a conscious effort not to shoot outside shots unless the shot clock was down and there was nothing left. I just got the impression the Cavs game plan was to try and score from the paint and force the Celtics to play defense as opposed to jacking up 3's and letting the Celtics' old men rest on defense.Mo took it to the hole more than I've ever seen him do.
-Love Shaq's play in the crunch, but is Perkins really that good and forcing missed bunnies?

He goes to a team like the Clip Show, his career could have a totally different trajectory. The organization deserves credit for molding JJ into the kind of player they want him to be and JJ deserves credit for his willingness to be that player.

Perkins went back to locker room and got stitches. Was also called for the foul (when Shaq got stuffed by the rim on a dunk).
