Celtics Fall to Cleveland 87-79 in Game 7

Monday, May 28, 2018

 

Jaylen Brown struggles in Celtics game 7 loss

The Boston Celtics playoff run came to an end on Sunday night.

The Celtics fell 87-79 to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game seven at the TD Garden in Boston.

"It was a pretty incredible run by an incredible group of guys. An absolute privilege to be around them every day," said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens after the game. 

It is the Celtics first and only home loss in the 2018 playoffs.

It is also the first time in history that the Celtics lost a series after leading it 2-0.

The Celtics were led by Jayson Tatum, who poured in 24 points, while Al Horford added 17 points.

LeBron James had 35 points to lead all scorers en route to his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance. 

"I thought it was an outstanding defensive game. And, again, he still had 35, 15 and 9. It's a joke," Stevens added. 

Celtics Fall to Cleveland

Tatum knocked down a three to give the Celtics a 72-71 lead with 6:03 left to play in the game.

From there, Cleveland went on a 15-2 run capped off by George Hill to take an 86-74 lead with 41 seconds left.

Cleveland would close the game on a 16-7 run and go on to win the game 87-79 to advance to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year.

Celtics Take Early Lead

Boston trailed 18-17 late in the first quarter, before going on an 18-5 run to take a 35-23 lead d with 8:27 left in the half.

However, the Celtics were unable to extend the lead.

Cleveland would rally to cut Boston’s lead to one, 40-39, with 42 seconds left in the game.

Boston would take a 43-39 lead at the half after Jaylen Brown hit a three with 33 seconds left before the break.

Young Players Struggle

Other than Tatum, the Celtics young players struggled.

Terry Rozier had just four points on 2 of 14 shooting from the field and 0 of 10 from three.

Brown recorded just 13 points on 5 of 18 shooting from the field and 3 of 12 from beyond the arc. One of those threes came in the final seconds.
