The Cavs got drilled by the Celtics in Game 1 in Boston, and following the game LeBron James said he wasn’t overly concerned about it. Colin thinks the game just meant more to the young Celtics, many of whom who grew up idolizing LeBron, and it showed with an emotional performance before a hyped up home crowd. He still predicts the Cavs will win the series.
The win was impressive, but Boston has been building their current team for the express purpose of beating LeBron in the East for years. For LeBron it was just another Game 1 in yet another playoff series, against yet another team that has him in his sights.
James has been through enough playoff battles to look at the bigger picture of the series without panicking over a bad Game 1 loss. He’s been here before.
