By: Chuck M. | May 18, 2018 Great job, LeBron. Why don’t you take another 500 jumpers for the cameras? If LeBron really wants to get the Cavs back in the series, he should be out there rebounding for George Hill and JR Smith. Or… he can lead the Cavs through some of these drills: [embedded content] LeBron James, Celtics, Red’s Army, Red’s Army News View the full post at Red's Army: LeBron still thinks he can shoot Cavs back into this series?...Read More

By: Chuck M. | May 18, 2018 We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Cleveland. The Cavs were SO worried about Al Horford that they changed their lineup. They changed what made them successful and it backfired. Hordford had ZERO points in the third quarter; meanwhile, Terry Rozier lit the Cavs up for 14. Cleveland faltered offensively and the Celtics burned them in transition. … Is trying to limit Al Horford that necessary? He isn’t the C’s key to offensive success. The...Read More
By: Chuck M. | May 17, 2018 LeBron James might be one man wrecking crew but the Cavaliers success is directly connected to the team’s 3-point shooting: The playoffs have helped crystallize the Cavaliers’ reputation as a team that lives and dies by its shooting. This is, after all, the same group who struggled to get past the Indiana Pacers while making only 32 percent of their 3-pointers, then turned around and hit 41 percent from deep while steamrolling the Raptors a week later. Even during the regular season, though, Cleveland was unusually dependent on the hotness of its shooting hand: In wins, the...Read More
By: Chuck M. | May 16, 2018 Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The whiplash Eastern Conference playoffs continued Tuesday with the young, tough Boston Celtics holding off a big LeBron James performance to take a 2-0 lead in their series. This was a weird, weird game. LeBron took a blow to the head early, put up a 42-point triple-double … and still looked out of it most of the night. Boston’s defense is putting the screws...Read More
By: Chuck M. | May 16, 2018 It’s not a playoff series against the Cavaliers if JR Smith isn’t taking cheap shots at Celtics. Last night it was an egregious push on a defenseless Al Horford. Three years ago he was punching Jae Crowder in the face. Marcus Smart was there to remind Smith that he’s not going to tolerate that garbage.

By: Chuck M. | May 13, 2018 Raise your hand if you had the Celtics with a 28 point lead in the 4th quarter. This was a DOMINANT performance by your Boston Celtics. The Cavaliers had ZERO interest in playing defense today. If it’s going to be this easy, the Celtics are going to sweep. This has nothing to do with the Cavaliers poor shooting. This was all about Boston getting whatever they wanted on offense. The final score, 108-83. Game Flow There was no real rhythm for the first few minutes of the opening quarter. But then Al...Read More
