There’s no way, is there, that Game 2 of this series can be as ugly as Game 1? After viewing the deplorable effort by both squads, it would be hard to envision Boston as the so-called "cream of the crop" in the East, and Lebron James as any kind of "King," save for the King of Chokers. Between Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, there has to be some kind of improvement on the Celtics’ side – their disappearance in game one must be considered a fluke. Moreover, James’ sudden inability to make a shot should also be considered some kind of alignment of the stars type of event, so expect him to drain a few more basketballs this time around. Nonetheless, it would be hard to trust either team to play together and put forth a solid team-wise effort, so let’s bank on the scoring to pick up, if not the quality of play. Cleveland/Boston OVER 177½.
