39 combined turnovers doesn’t say a good game that’s for sure. I guess both Cleveland and Boston are still a little rusty. Just like in their last meeting, when James outscored Pierce 45-41 in that man-on-man shootout, Pierce’s team got the better of James’. The Celtics led 86-80 with 1:15 left when Mo Williams, Cleveland’s big offseason acquisition, hit a 3-pointer from the left side. Williams then grabbed the rebound of Leon Powe’s miss, but James drove through traffic to the basket and couldn’t muscle the ball into the basket. Pierce missed a jumper, and after James got the rebound he was fouled hard going to the basket; he missed the first of two free throws, cutting it to 86-84. Pierce cleared the full-court pressure with a long pass to Powe under the basket for the dunk and foul. After his missed free throw, James got another chance at the line, this time with the Cavaliers down 88-84 and 4.8 seconds left. He missed the first, and Ray Allen hit a pair of free throws to clinch it. Pics from the game after the jump. James wore the Zoom LeBron VI in the White and Navy colorway.
