After winning Game 7 against the Washington Wizards on Monday night, then following that up with a Draft Lottery victory on Tuesday night, the Boston Celtics couldn’t keep the good times rolling on Wednesday night during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron James lead the way with a dominant 38-point, nine-rebound, seven-assist performance, as the Cavs jumped out to a double-digit lead in the first quarter, and though the final score registered just a 14-point loss for the Celtics, the game was never in doubt. 

Now, Isaiah Thomas and Co. will need to regroup and find a way to even the series Friday night in Game 2. If they don’t, their fate will be pretty much sealed. Yes, they came back to win the series against the Bulls after losing the first two games at home, but the Bulls did not have LeBron James.
