The Cavaliers may have had the momentum on their side coming off a dominant series against Toronto, but it was the Celtics who set the tone early.

Boston had a 17-0 run in the first quarter and led by 18 (36-18) after 12 minutes and left no doubt in this one.

Cleveland managed to cut the deficit to 14 (78-64) but Boston extended their lead winning 108-83 in the end.

LeBron James had an off shooting night with 15 points on 5-of-16 shooting but added 7 rebounds and 9 assists in 36 minutes.

Turkish rookie saw the floor for 7 minutes and had 2 boards.

Croatian center, Ante Zizic had 2 boards and an assist in 2 minutes.

Marcus Morris was solid for Boston with 21 points and 10 rebounds while Al Horford and Jaylen Brown added 20 and 23 points apiece.

French rookie Guerschon Yabusele did not score in 5 minutes of action.

Cleveland shot 16% from deep and will need to knock down their three-pointers if they want to even the series this Tuesday.
