5 takeaways from Game 3 against Boston Celtics — Washington Wizards

20 May, 2017, 10:21 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

"It's too hard to say".

Fast forward to Game 1 of that series Wednesday at TD Garden, where Olynyk found himself trying to stop Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James - and failing miserably. And then there's the fatigue factor, which it looked like the Celtics were suffering from at the start of Game 1.

James, who is seeking to reach his seventh straight National Basketball Association finals, scored 15 in the fourth quarter en route to his seventh straight 30-point game.

Against eight different defenders, James led the way with the 38 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 42 minutes.

If you compare and contrast today's LeBron with younger versions, you'll see he has lost some of his explosiveness.

"This is a flawless roster with regard to how many predicaments they can put you in with all the shooting". "You can't start the game off lax, or shooting a bunch of jump shots". He wanted to get to the rim.

"Well, for me I saw that in Kev this morning", said LeBron.

And poor Kelly Olynyk was left out to dry against LeBron, who chose to toy with Olynyk before taking him to the basket.

The silly part is that all of that happened in the first quarter.

"It's the mind-set you have to have when you go on the road, for Game 1", James said. "That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table".

Some third-quarter unpleasantness erupted between Thompson and Boston's Marcus Smart.

Kevin Love gave him plenty of help, but James dominated with such ease and there is no answer for him. It felt like bullying. Brown's minutes were sporadic against the Washington Wizards, but at 6-7 he gives the Celtics an option to look at when Cleveland goes small. "I know I can impact the game whether it shows up in the stat sheet or not".

"I hope some of them walk around D.C. and take a deep breath", he said. It's not Boston's best, but both were much improved when paired up with Horford - Green and Horford, plus-nine; Brown and Horford, plus-seven. The ownness now falls on Tyronn Lue to decide who's going to take that matchup. "My mind is always racing on how I can make this the best possession at that particular time".

"As I mentioned to [Cavs head coach] Ty [Lue] last week and throughout these playoffs, it doesn't matter to me if I'm getting five shots or 25 shots, I just want to win", said Love. Nobody is better than James at forcing defenses to make an impossible decision, and nobody is harder to deceive with defensive coverages. At a certain point, though, the Celtics will have to commit to either helping or not. His mind has never been sharper.
