Entering last night's game the Cavaliers were the #2 seed in the Eastern conference, since the Celtics overtook the #1 spot after the Cavaliers had lost the game prior. Everyone was beginning to think it could be the beginning of the end for Lebron James dominating the Eastern conference. It was full blown panic mode, at least for everyone in the media, Cavs never seemed to be that worried with the direction this team was going. They had lost 10 games in March, getting cold at the worst time, now they were about to lose to the Celtics, and lose the #1 seed in the process. Obviously, Lebron James, didn't let that happen.
The king wasn't just about to let the TD Garden gnome, Isaiah Thomas, and his gang of bandits steal the #1 seed away from the Cavs creating all sorts of story lines for the Eastern conference playoffs. Lebron realized last night was probably the only regular season game all year that meant something, so he actually tried, and the result is not surprising whatsoever. The Celtics can't sit with the Cavs, they aren't even half as good as those guys, last night definitively showed the NBA world that when the Cavs spanked the Celtics 114-91. Now, after just one game, essentially one good Lebron performance, the Cavaliers are all fixed and playoff ready. It's pure comedy, the damn media just can't make up their damn mind. Either understand the dominance of Lebron or just don't speak on him because you'll just end up embarrassing yourself.
I don't want anyone saying shit about the way Lebron has played this season blaming losses on him would be asinine. The man single-handily beat the Celtics last night with a little help on the boards from Kevin Love. Lebron had 36 points, shooting 63% from the field, bringing down 10 boards, and he had 6 assists. Probably would've had a triple double if his teammates could actually hit some shots. Kyrie Irving, Lebron's sidekick that gets none of the blame and all of the credit, had another Kyrie game that'll get swept under the rug. Kyrie had 19 points, shooting 38% from the field, and he didn't contribute much elsewhere, another underwhelming night for Kyrie in which he'll receive no criticism. Kevin Love had a nice contribution putting up 10 points and 16 boards, but it was nothing that would've made or break the Cavs. Ultimately, Lebron decided to try since their was actually meaning to the game and he reminded the world just how incredible and unstoppable he is once he decides to try.
