LeBron James Dominated The Celtics In Game 1 Just Like He’s Dominated Everyone Else This Postseason

LeBron James went into Boston on Wednesday night and put the Celtics to sleep on their home court. There’s no other way to describe it, other than the well-worn yet accurate term that lingers around most conversations about James: domination.

James was ruthless in his performance, 38 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists in a stat line that at times looked effortless. James casually drove on Kelly Olynyk — who couldn’t guard him — and playfully fed teammates like Kevin Love, who himself had 32 points and 12 rebounds in a rout of a Celtics team that survived John Wall and Washington just long enough to walk into a home court beatdown on Wednesday night.

It looks like there’s little hope for Isaiah Thomas and the Celtics because there’s no bouncing back from a defeat at the hands of LeBron James. Not this postseason, anyway. James has consistently tore through his opponents this spring in a way that continues to set records. Forget the all-time playoff scoring mark, which will certainly fall sometime over the next two weeks. We’re talking all-time efforts for consistent dominance.
