Coming off of an emotional game last night against the Portland Trail Blazers which featured the debut of Isaiah Thomas for the Cavs, they struggled to generate any offense outside of LeBron James and Kyle Korver as they fall to the Boston Celtics 102-88.

Terry Rozier was the leading scorer of the game with 20 points (Rozier came off the bench). Scoring was even for Boston as Tatum and Smart had 15 points, Brown with 14 points, and Irving and Hortford with 11 points each.

This game unlike the first game was not about Kyrie against LeBron as the young Boston team took over from the start. Kevin Love set the tone negatively for Cleveland as he missed his first eight shots and finishing with only two points before leaving the game in the 2nd half for an ankle injury. Everyone else for the Cavs struggled as they only shot 35 percent from the field.

Cavs will travel to Orlando to face the Magic this Saturday while the Celtics wrap up their four game homestand this Friday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
