Not even a James triple-double (with 12 assists and 10 rebounds to go with his fifth 40-plus point game of the postseason) could save the Cavaliers from the Celtics on Tuesday.

It was the kind of moment that indicated James knew the gravity of the situation and the need for Cleveland to even this series in Game 2. Smith shoved Morris and the pair had to be separated.

Thompson is going to be on Horford, and he'll likely collect some rebounds as a result, but I think you should be far less concerned with that element so long as your defense on James is what it was on Sunday. After the Tatum play, he shot 7-for-14 the rest of the way with six more rebounds and eight more assists.
