LeBron James had one of his worst playoff games in recent memory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavs were blown out by the Celtics in Boston and James struggled in a couple of aspects.
Losing in Game 1 is nothing unusual for James. He’s done it plenty of times before. In almost all of those times, he’s gone on to win Game 2.
Will that happen tonight?
James appears to be doing everything he can to make that happen.
Check out what the Cavs’ star was doing roughly 12 hours before Game 2 is set to get underway:

Despite the Game 1 loss, James and the Cavs remain the favorites to win the series. They are a small underdog tonight, though.
Cleveland and Boston are set to tip off at 8:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ESPN.
Who are you taking tonight?
