Celtics complete shocking series victory over Cavaliers


Five players scored in double figures for Boston, compared to just three players for Cleveland, and the Celtics' reserves outscored the Cavaliers' reserves 24-13 as Boston will now face the Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavs' LeBron James had a triple/double with 27 points, 19 rebounds, and 10 assists, but had a disastrous 9 turnovers as the Cavs shot just 38% and turned the ball over 22 times.

Game 1 between the Celtics and Magic will be Sunday afternoon and Game 2 Tuesday evening as the Magic enjoy the homecourt advantage.

Here is the complete recap from Yahoo! Sports of the Celtics' win.

    Boston proved to be the better team in this series, as the "Big Three" all had success and Rondo was fantastic at PG. The reserves also did well.

    LeBron James did not have enough help. Antawn Jamison, who the Cavs picked up at the trading deadline, was thought to have been the missing piece that would make the Cavs the favorite for the NBA Title according to many experts, was awful in Game 6, shooting 2 for 10 for 5 points.

    22 turnovers like the Cavs committed and 38% shooting like the Cavs shot isn't exactly going to get the job done in an elimination game.

    Congrats to the Celtics, but now they have to go through the Orlando Magic, which will be a lot more difficult than going through the overrated Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Credit goes to BOS who obviously were a lot more balanced than CLE was, and exposed the weaknesses of CLE which all hinge around LeBron's game. BOS showed that CLE's guards were below average (certainly in defense), and their frontline was too immobile. The idea of Shaq for Dwight and Jamison for Rashard was never put to serious test becuase they did not make it to where it could count.

    BOS showed rejuvenated. Rondo is a handful, while out of the Big Three, KG seems just about as healthy as he could be, Ray Allen is making shots, and Pierce is back to full strength. It would be an interesting series with the Magic, but the bruises of the draining series with CLE may prove to be too much to cope with when playing a well-oiled machine in Magic.
