On paper, the Boston Celtics now have a 1-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are now playing for the right to make their fourth consecutive NBA Finals, but in all likelihood, the looming free agency of their resident superstar LeBron James is on their minds as well.

Love said he thought the Cavs were a "little soft" in the first half in Game 1. He scored 21 of Cleveland's 27 points in the first quarter, tying his playoff career high for points in a period. In particular, J.R. Smith was utterly useless, and he ended up absolutely embarrassing himself and his teammates with an egregious flagrant foul on Al Horford with under four minutes to play.

In game one, it looked like he saved the very best of this season for this series, and if he can keep this up it will be the kind of unexpected edge that could be a determining factor in this series, and at least make sure the Celtics push it as far as possible.

James continued his impressive levels of production against the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, posting 34.0 points (on a true shooting percentage of 57.9), 8.3 rebounds, 11.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 block per game.

But Game 2 is another story.

Hartstein knows Cleveland had gotten the better of Boston in recent meetings, winning in five of their six previous trips to TD Garden. James and the Cavaliers eliminated the Celtics in a five-game series last May. The Celtics jumped out to a 20 point lead in the first quarter and held it through to the final buzzer. After 24 points against IN in Game 1, he bounced back with 46 points on 17-for-24 shooting, and after 22 points IN Game 6 of the same series he came out and scored 45 points to accompany eight boards, seven assists and four steals IN the series decider.

Jose Calderon would provide veteran savvy as the backup point guard, in addition to great three-point shooting and surprising defensive tenacity. Cleveland's starters scored 46 points, shooting 33 percent from the field and going just 3 of 19 from beyond the arc.

That said, whenever Clarkson is on the floor against players like Terry Rozier and the aforementioned Brown and Tatum, keeping a heady point like George Hill on the court would be wise, even if LeBron James is on the court.

Celtics forward Marcus Morris said prior to Game 1 that he and Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard may be the two best defenders of LeBron James.

Well, historically, James, after a bad game, comes back with a big bang in the next.

James has spoken in the past about his ability to "play a lot of plays" in his head, admitting that sometimes it can actually get in the way of a great game. LeBron had a rough game 1, but he's too good to be shutdown all series long.

"It's definitely something we have to weigh", Lue said.

For a repeat of Game 2 against IN, the Cavs are going to need more than what they got from James' supporting cast IN that game: 5-of-16 shooting from Love, five points from JR Smith, 16 points from their bench and a DNP-CD from Tristan Thompson.

Allen signed with the Heat, winning a title with James as part of the 2013 squad. We've got to help him and be effective. Morris won the Big 12 Player of the Year award in his junior and final year at Kansas.
