The Boston Celtics have made a serious statement in the first two games of the Eastern Conference finals with convincing wins over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and according to Coach Nick, Boston is well on its way to the NBA Finals.
“Cleveland has now tried two radically different approaches in two games and the results have been the same — blowout wins for Boston,” Coach Nick said in his breakdown of Game 2. “Expect LeBron to force more mismatches to attack in Game 3, but also expect the Celtics to easily exploit poor defensive communication and positioning to generate consistently good shots.”
Coach Nick goes on to say that while LeBron James has the ability to potentially bring the Cavaliers back, “it’s abundantly clear that the Celtics are the better team.”
