The Boston Revenge: 3 Reasons Behind Cavs Defeat Against Celtics

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving Shaking Hands before the Game


After the Boston Celtics' season opener defeat against the Cleveland Cavaliers, they finally got the chance to strike them back. Celtics redemption thwarted the Cavs 102 - 88.

Kyrie only scored 11 points but still, Celtics destroyed the Cavs completely.


What could be the reasons behind this overwhelming Celtics win over Cavs?


1. A not so dominant LeBron

Surprisingly, in games wherein most expected that he'll go all out, LeBron scored only 19 points. Though he was the top scorer for the Cavs, still it is unusual for him to play so small. He even missed all his attempts from beyond the arc.


2. Rozier's big play off the bench

While everyone was expecting and focused on two guys -- Irving and James, Terry Rozier came off the bench very efficiently. Rozier rocked the arena with 20 points off the bench within 20 minutes of playing time. While Kyrie Irving struggled from the rainbow country, delivering nothing out of his 5 attempts, Rozier's just at ease to hit 4 out of 6 long balls.

It was a great trump card that a player off the bench played bigger than the superstars on the floor. Nobody or at least a few anticipated that the biggest point contribution would come from a man who hasn't played even half of the whole 48 minutes.


3. Disabled I.T.

Isaiah Thomas could've been Cavs best card to play against Boston but unfortunately, he is at rest and has just recovered from injury. I.T knows even the bench players of Boston. He could've been the key to cease Rozier's explosion earlier. He could've forced to sit out Terry and let the worst shooting Kyrie longer.


Overall, Boston played a not so big game but unfortunately, the Cavs were at their worst form in any aspect.

Kyle Korver delivered well on his task -- shooting threes yet he's alone. As mentioned above, LeBron hit nothing but the steel rim. Same as Kevin Love, a dangerous towering outside shooter was a dormant at the game both inside, perimeter and beyond the arc. Love hit 1 out of his 11 attempts on the field and nothing of 4 outside attempts.

Celtics win over Cavs can be considered as a lucky victory. Nothing turned out to be huge and explosive. It is the other way around instead. Most of their key players were missing in action. It was great for Boston facing the worst Cavs and having a Rozier ready to go to aid the empty-handed Kyrie.
