Eastern Conference Finals Game 4 Preiview
The Celtics and Cavaliers will face off for game 4 tonight in Cleveland. As of right now, the Celtics lead the series 2-1. However, the Celtics did not show up last game. LeBron and the Cavs took an early lead and really never looked back.
If you take another glance at game 3, you will notice that the Celtics were terrible on defense. They were not closing off on screens and they just looked lackadaisical. I believe this will be solved tonight. This young team also can’t let LeBron get in their heads. The Celtics know LeBron will score, it’s just a fact.
This game is obviously a must win for the Cavaliers. If the Celtics can win this game, they will have a 3-1 lead on the series. Although LeBron has come back in the Finals down 3-1, this is not the same team. The players around him were better, and he put the team on his back. I do not think he is capable of doing that once again.
Look For the Cavaliers to come out to a hot start. They do this all the time at home. JR Smith, Thompson, and Love always play better when they are in Cleveland. Also look for Boston to come back late in this game. Smart will have a huge game tonight, and his firey attituded on the court will lead this Celtics team to a win.
