Cavs' LeBron James can not stop Celtics from taking 2-0 series lead

Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce center dunks as Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James left and center Anderson Varejao of Brazil right watch during the second half of Game 4 in a second-round NBA basketball playoff series Sunday

Boston's third-quarter surge produced decibel levels on par with that seen in the Celtics' Game 2 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in which the team overcame a 22-point deficit and later raved about the noise inside the building. A jumper from James trimmed the Celtics' lead to six with 4:42 to play but the hosts scored the next eight points to pull away for the win.

In what was James' first postseason run, Cleveland lost its first two games to the No. 1 seeded Detroit Pistons in the 2006 Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Terry Rozier added 18 points, while Al Horford finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Boston had no such problem with scoring distribution - with all five starters plus Marcus Smart scoring in double-figures.

The Celtics played at a much more urgent pace than Cleveland on Tuesday night. Cleveland also committed 15 turnovers to just six for the Celtics. "At this point we don't care if we win by half a point".

The Cavaliers actually out-shot Boston, 46 percent to 43 percent, with each team canning 10 triples. He turned the ball over the Cavs' first possession.

"We're going to fight", Rozier said. "Our group in tough times, we've always found a way".

"They're playing tougher than we are".

The Cavaliers came into the game looking to switch things up a bit, so they gave forward Tristan Thompson the start in place of sharp-shooting guard Kyle Korver. "We've got to be tougher, mentally and physically". Game 3 is Saturday in Cleveland. If necessary, Game 6 is back in The Land next Friday (5/25) and returns to TD Garden for Game 7 next Sunday (5/27) - all games, 8:30 p.m. ET.
