Brad vs LeBron & Other Keys to the Celtics Cavaliers Series

The Celtics may be a young and relatively inexperienced team but they are wise enough to know that there is no stopping LeBron James.

Lebron led teams are 10-1 in their last 11 games against the C’s including a five game annihilation by the Cavs over the Celtics in last year’s Conference Finals.

This Celtics squad is however better equipped to, not stop but certainly make things more difficult for King James than year’s past. They have a lot of bodies to throw at LeBron to at least try and slow him down. Plus while he won’t be playing for the Celts this series at least Kyrie Irving won’t be killing them on the other side either.

There were several members of our Garden report crew who have been doubting the Celtics this entire run.
