BOSTON — Celtics remained clueless to date how to stop LeBron James who had 38 points, nine rebounds and seven assists and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 117-104.

Lebron knew what to do, where to put himself and where and when to pass the ball to a playmate to score another basket. This is the gist of today's Game 1 at Celtics home court.

In today's game, Kevin Love had a playoff career-high of 32 points and 12 rebounds.

It was Cavaliers 9th straight win in the first three rounds of the playoffs.

Who can stop James as he scored at will in the first half and the Cavs built a 26-point lead.
