Brown Leads Celtics Win over Cavaliers 107-94 in Eastern Finals

BOSTON – LeBron James scored a triple-double on Tuesday, but could not prevent the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 107-94 defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals at TD Garden.

The Celtics now have a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

James scored 42 points, with 12 assists and 10 rebounds, but turned the ball over six times, and was the only one who could break through the Celtics’ defense, which finally proved key in their victory.

James notched 21 of the 27 points scored by his team in the first quarter, tying his playoff career high for points in a period.

Jaylen Brown was the top scorer for the Celtics, who proved to be far superior to their rivals, the reigning Eastern Conference champions.

Point guard Terry Rozier was the second highest scorer with 18 points and among six Celtics players to put up double-digit scores, including center Al Horford, who managed a double-double and 15 points and 10 rebounds.

In 37 minutes of play, Horford shot 5-of-13 from the field and 4-of-5 from the free throw line besides capturing seven defensive rebounds, giving four assists and stealing the ball twice.

Meanwhile, power forward Kevin Love put up a double-double of 22 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who came back home to the Quicken Loans Arena for Game 3 of the series on Saturday.

The Celtics have never blown a 2-0 series lead in the playoffs, making them favorites to reach the NBA Finals.
