Cleveland Cavaliers rebound vs. Boston Celtics to even series 1-1 with blowout Game 2 win

BOSTON — The Cleveland Cavaliers had 48 hours to dissect the film from their 25-point blowout loss in Game 1, and they put it to good use. They dismantled the top-seeded Boston Celtics, 118-94, in Game 2 at the TD Garden on Thursday night.

The Celtics' offensive barrage overwhelmed the Cavs defense in Game 1, as Boston poured in 18 3-pointers and 120 points in a game that was over well before the final whistle was blown.

That trend was reversed in Game 2, as the Celtics hit only eight of 35 3-point attempts.

Donovan Mitchell, Evan Mobley and the Cavs were able to steal a game in Boston for their first road playoff win under J.B. Bickerstaff.

 It was also the first road game during these playoffs in which the Cavs reached 100 points.
