LeBron James gave the Celtics his best shot on Tuesday night and it wasn’t enough. The All-Star forward scored 21 of his game-high 42 points in the first quarter to build an early double-digit lead, but things began to go downhill from there for the Cavs.

The hosts fought back on both ends of the floor in the second half, outscoring the Cavs by a 59-39 margin over the final two quarters to pull away with a 107-94 win in Game 2 to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
