Kevin Love swished six triples to finish with 32 points and 12 rebounds while Tristan Thompson added 20 and 9 boards. On April 5, with the No. 1 seed in the East up in the air, Cleveland won by 23.

That gave Celtics fans a day to dream about next year's team, which could add a college star like Washington's Markelle Fultz; at least one fan showed up at Wednesday's game with Fultz's name written on his Celtics T-shirt in marker.

BOSTON (AP) - LeBron James did pretty much whatever he wanted to against the Celtics in the Cavaliers' dominating win in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Still, James said the Cavs are mentally preparing for the Celtics' best shot in Game 2. "One game. They took care of business, and we just gotta take care of business in Game 2". It included getting within 11 points with less than 2 minutes to play.

Michael Jordan isn't walking through the door, but Isaiah Thomas and the Boston Celtics still are hopeful about their chances against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James scored the Cavaliers' final eight points of the half, twice on jumpers after posting up on the left low block, and then, after knocking down a pair of free throws and missing a layup, he finished off a drive with a basket in the waning seconds of the half. "They're not on 'Space Jam, '" Thomas said. "That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table". "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first".
