BOSTON — As with every opponent in the NBA Playoffs, the Boston Celtics again found themselves entering the Eastern Conference Finals vs the Cleveland Cavaliers as the underdog.

Through two games, the C’s have shown that gritty team basketball can over-come individual talent.

With the Celtics up 2-0, the officials are not blowing the whistle nearly as much as in years past when facing LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

Jimmy Toscano, Nick Gelso and Jacob Tobey look at the physicality of the first two games and how it seems to be getting to LeBron and the Cavs.

Will we see a more choppy, foul ridden game at Quicken Loans Arena?

Tip off is 8:30 pm ET on Saturday. CLNS Media and CelticsBlog will have you covered from tip to post-game.
