"We have an opportunity to look at some film tomorrow and see ways they was making us uncomfortable". But Smith was right behind Horford as he pushed the latter while in mid-air.
Time will tell if Morris can keep Lebron tamed, and history says Lebron will find his game sooner than later.
Smith was issued a grade one flagrant foul, while both he and Smart were issued technical fouls. Now the Celtics' lead was 14, with less than three minutes left. The insertion of Tristan Thompson into the starting lineup, along with playing Larry Nance instead of Jordan Clarkson, has given Cleveland better energy and defensive effort, and it's translated to how the Cavaliers have played. Boston Celtic's Marcus Morris and the Houston Rockets' Tarik Black. It was the kind of moment that indicated James knew the gravity of the situation and the need for Cleveland to even this series in Game 2. They attacked us early on.
But great as James was early, as much as he urged himself to a final push in the closing minutes and finished with a triple-double of 42 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists, it was not almost enough.
Boston's defense dominated the Cavaliers, and Al Horford delivered big for the Celtics.
"We had a bad game", Lue said succinctly.
Horford then drove for a 101-89 lead with 3:38 to play and scored another basket for a 14-point lead.
The last time James trailed 0-2 in the Eastern Conference finals was in 2008 against the Celtics, who would go on to win the National Basketball Association title.
Celtics push LeBron, Cavs into 0-2 hole
This wasn't one of them. Smith denied feeling frustrated, but the plays sure looked connected. "And you don't worry about those things you can't control". "Realize you're going to get that punch, you're going to get that hit by LeBron and the rest of the guys". He got the start and you have to expect it to stay that way, because that defense did something hat very few thought would be possible. "We just didn't do that". "I think we can definitely learn from them".
The Cavaliers didn't defend the way they'd like to, but that's been a season-long deficiency. However, they still had a lot of talent and a superstar in Kyrie Irving to lead the team.
But it might have been the hustle of Smart near the end of the first half that gave the Celtics life after the Cavaliers led by double digits with under four minutes to play in the second quarter. The other seven who played before Lue waved the white flag managed only 30.
The series continues at Boston's TD Garden.
Boston are undefeated in their last nine home playoff games.
Before checking out, James made one of two free throws, giving Cleveland its largest lead of the game at 11 points.
He was asked about his level of concern, a follow up to his statement after Game 1 that he had "zero" level of concern.
"I think they had a great game plan in Game 1, and he was the start of it", James said.
