During Game 2, Cs coaches urged the players to wear down the Cavs. LeBron has helped ensure that series has been played at his speed, but I think the young Celtics might try to speed things up again: bostonglobe.com/sports/celtics…

My warm-take game prediction: If LeBron misses his 3s, Celics win big. If LeBron makes his 3s, it goes down to the wire.

Ty Lue says he’s going to try to rest LeBron at the end of quarters and doesn’t want him to have to play the whole game.
“Not 48. But if I have to I will.”

Shane Larkin said he’s progressed and is feeling good. But he said if he takes a hit in the next 6 weeks or so there is a danger of reinjuring the shoulder and needing surgery, so if the Cs make the finals he’ll have to weigh that.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked about the team dealing with nerves before Game 7.
“I’m sure there’s always butterflies before any game,” said Stevens. “But I think our guys are really tough-minded, really focused on the task at hand. We know we have a great challenge in front of us, but more than anything, we’re looking forward to the challenge. I think we’ve seen over and over with this group that we have a lot of guys that are built for that. And they’re excited about it and we’re looking forward to it.”
