Cavaliers vs. Celtics: LeBron James torches Boston with 21 first-quarter points in Game 2
LeBron went for 21 points in the first quarter after scoring just 15 in all of Game 1
"The King" came out locked in and on fire, pouring in 21 points on 8 of 13 shooting in the first. He got going early, scoring eight points in the first four minutes.
And he just continued his exploits all quarter long. The Celtics weren't even playing bad defense on some of the shots he made. Like, what are you supposed to do against this?
But despite all of the work from LeBron, the Cavaliers weren't able to extend much of a lead. At the end of the first quarter, their advantage was just 27-23.
