LeBron: Tatum's shoulder to the jaw 'didn't affect my game'

The C's had already survived an absolute haymaker from King James, who stormed the gates with 21 points in the first quarter.

"He didn't quit. You saw it - I mean, gah!" said Kimberly Williams, a chuckle catching in her thick southern drawl as she recalled Smart's diving save. While making a play on the ball in the first half, Tatum collided with LeBron James and hit him in the face with his shoulder.

Following his team's Game 2 loss to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue had a pointed description of Boston's physicality.

The Celtics will have three days to sit on a 2-0 series lead. "We go out there, we compete".

What did matter to Thompson was how Cleveland responded to Boston's physicality overall.

James wasted a 42-point, 12-assist, 10-rebound game for the Cavaliers. His 42 points marked his fifth 40-point game of this postseason, but he got very little support from his teammates tonight.

But he didn't seem to play with the same force after straining his neck in a first-half collision and the Cavaliers wilted in the second half, with the Celtics outscoring them 59-39.

"I love it", Smith, who shot 0-for-7 for the game, said of the jeers. "I'm not a Chatty Patty, so you're going to have to ask him that". The Cleveland bench complained that Smart was out of bounds, but the play went on.

At times during the 76ers' now concluded playoff run, they looked lost, and that's understandable.

For added context, the Cavs yielded only a mere five points out of the string of three deadline trades, as Jordan Clarkson was a DNP, and George Hill, Rodney Hood, and Larry Nance Jr. only mustered five points in 55 combined minutes of play, according to Tyler Conway of Bleacher Report.

But of course, as is always the case with Smart, the 11 points he scored didn't tell almost the whole story.

J.R. Smith had an ugly performance.

Horford then drove for a 101-89 lead with 3:38 to play and scored another basket for a 14-point lead. Smith was also called for a flagrant foul when he pushed Al Horford in the back while he was attempting to finish an alley-oop. Smith shoved Morris and the pair had to be separated.

"At the end of the day, when you're a basketball player, you step out there between the lines, you've got a job to do, you've prepared well to do that and you just go play". Whatever it takes, every player, 1 to 15, whatever it takes, that's what we're doing.

Needless to say, it was an extremely ill-advised decision by Smith, not to mention a unsafe play and a selfish play at that. "Some nights not knowing (what) we were going to do and I just promised my mom, I'm going to make it for us".

"It was a good, hard foul - I can understand why it was given".

The Celtics used a balanced attack as a half dozen players reached double figures. He did have a game-high six turnovers, giving him 13 in the series so far.
