LeBron James scored 27 points on just 12 shots from the field and dished out 12 assists in Cleveland’s convincing 116-86 victory over Boston on Saturday. After being embarrassed in the first two tilts of the Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden the Cavaliers aim to even the best-of-7 series at 2-games apiece on Monday night.

The Celtics still lead this series 2-1 but have found victory in just one playoff game in the 2018 postseason. Celtics swing-man Marcus Morris executed a solid defensive performance against James in the first two conference contests. Morris held James to just 5-of-16 shooting in Game #1. And the former Kansas Jayhawk scored 21 in the opening series win for Boston.
Morris told the CBS Sports contributor James Herbert @OutsidetheNBA on Sunday that he was disappointed with his Game #3 defense on King James. “Personally, I think I did a (poor) job defensively with LeBron,” Morris told the local media. “He was too comfortable when I was guarding him. I made myself very vulnerable on screens and wasn’t disciplined. We can’t have that in a game of this magnitude, and it showed.”
Conversely the Cavaliers coaching staff and players took full accountability for the Game #3 victory rather than pushing the win off on a porous effort by the Celtics.
“This is the way we have to play,” coach Tyron Lue told the Cleveland press. “I think bringing the physicality to start”.
Consequently the Celtics players, to a man, promised a much different effort in Game #4 Monday night.
