The various things being blamed, in no particular order: LeBron’s MVP ceremony, the Cavs feeling entitled to win the game, LeBron sleeping through the first half, the disappearance of Mo Williams or, interestingly enough, the fact that the Celtics are only two years removed from winning a championship and play a brand of playoff basketball that not many other teams have historically been able to match, much less this season, this Cavaliers team.
For anyone who's truly shocked, though, have no fear: The Celtics have been beyond atrocious at home this year (where they were previously nigh indestructible) and are almost assured to take a split at the Garden—worst-case scenario for Boston fans.
