CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers ran into some trouble Tuesday night before holding off the Boston Celtics, 99-91 at the Quicken Loans Arena.
LeBron James had 30 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists and the Cavs jumped to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-7 duel. Kyrie Irving had 26 points and 6 assists while Kevin Love pitched in 13.
"I've been in this moment before, and a lot of our guys haven't. I thought it was important for me to put a stamp on this game," James told reporters after the tight contest.
The Cavs shot just 44.7 percent from the field (34 of 76) but it was enough because the Celtics made only 33 of 85 shots, 38.8 percent.
Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 22 points.
