LeBron James and Cleveland Cavs come back to beat Boston Celtics -- Garden Report Post Game Show

The Celtics dropped 42 points in the third quarter, but LeBron and Kyrie pulled off a great comeback to erase a 19-point lead. The Garden Report broke down their second half dominance, as well as Jelly Sullynyk and the bench's play.

BOSTON -- No lead is safe.

No matter how many big leads Brad Stevens' Celtics can obtain, they can't seem to hold on to them. On Wednesday, it was a depleted Oklahoma City Thunder squad. Friday, it was a full-force Cleveland Cavs looking for redemption. LeBron James has taken plenty of heat for his less-than-godly performance this year. He shut those critics up with a consistent and profound 41 point, seven assist performance.

Celtics Hub's Tom Westerholm made his Garden Report debut along with Julian Edlow and host Jared Weiss to break down the final plays in which Rajon Rondo blew it big, and LeBron and Kyrie Irving's dominance. They also broke down the consistently strong play of Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger (lovingly known on this site as Jelly Sullynyk) and analyzed the results of Marcus Smart's absence.

The Garden Report's theme song is "That Ride" by Sweatbox and produced by Teddy Roxpin. Download it here!
