Wednesday, May 17, 2017

 

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers come to TD Garden for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The Boston Celtics will make their first Eastern Conference finals appearance since 2012 on Wednesday night when they host the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers at TD Garden for game 1. 

“We got to get ready for the defending champs; we know that. The good thing about it is we’ve got home-court advantage, so we’ve got to be ready on Wednesday to try to take care of home court. We know it’s going to be tough, but at this point, anything can happen, and we really believe it," said Isaiah Thomas following Boston's game 7 win over Washington. 

The Celtics advanced to the conference finals after beating the Washington Wizards in seven games.

Cleveland is in the conference finals for the third straight year after sweeping the Toronto Raptors.
