Jaylen Brown scored scored 23 points to lead the Boston Celtics to victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-83 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Marcus Morris scored 21 points to go with 10 rebounds while playing stifling defense on LeBron James. Al Horford chipped in had 20 points, and Jayson Tatum contributed 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, and two steals for Boston in the win.

LeBron James was bothered by the Celtics’ defense all game, leading to a personal playoff-high seven turnovers and a playoff-low 15 points, to go with nine assists, and seven rebounds.

Kevin Love had a decent game 17 points and eight rebounds, while Tristan Thompson put up eight points and 11 rebounds.
