Not much has changed regarding the lines from Game 1, Cleveland have gone from -4.5 to -5.5, with the Total Points increasing by 0.5 to 218.5 to 219.0.
Following an epic early Game 1 blowout, the final 117-104 Cleveland victory flattered the Celtics greatly. The game was essentially over at half time with the Cavs up by 22, but the King wasn’t satisfied –
“I don’t even think we played that great tonight,” James (38 pts, nine rbs and seven dimes in Game 1) said…. Some mind games there perhaps from Lebron, but it sure set one thing in our minds, that -5.5 line is going to get a pounding from our end.
LBJ is averaging 34.8 pts, 9.0 rbs and 7.1 aspg per game in these playoffs.
Along with Lebron’s performance, K.Love brought some vintage form from back in his TWolves days with a 32 pts and 12 rbs.
Isaiah Thomas scraped through 17 points in Game 1, and they will need double that to get a look in in Game 2, and even if that happens, it’s the Cavs for us -5.0 all the way to the bank.
