celts vs. cavs

The 2nd-round playoff series between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers is tied up at a game apiece after Boston's big 104-86 win in Game 2.

But, what's up with the fouls? In the first game, Boston was whistled for 25; the Cavs, only 17. In the second game, the difference was even bigger: 31 for the Celtics, 16 for the Cavs.

Whatever, it didn't seem to make much difference in the second game. The Cavs missed 12 free throws and shot only 68.4% from the line in the blowout loss. In fact, in Game 1, Cleveland went 21 for 31 (67.7%) from the line.


If they're gonna keep missing like that, then maybe Boston should keep up with the aggressive defense. Maybe that's been the plan all along.

It seems that the Celtics are confident that they can pull off the upset. I don't see any reason why they shouldn't be.

Let's see if LeBron and the Cavs can adjust.
