J.R. Smith put the Cavs on top by hitting a three-pointer with 37 seconds left to put the Cavs on top by two points but Boston's Jonas Jerebko made a jumpshot from the corner assisted by Bradley to grab back the lead.
Stevens will most likely start Marcus Smart at the point like he did after halftime of Game 2; Smart responded with 4 assists and 1 turnover in his nine minutes of the 2nd half.
The Celtics All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas tallied just 19 points on 7-for-25 shooting from the field through the first two games in this Eastern Conference Finals series.
Irving scored 29 points, and Kevin Love added 28 points and 10 rebounds for Cleveland.
The Cavaliers dropped to 10-1 in the post-season with their first loss since game four of last year's finals against Golden State.
After Game 2, Popovich said he was done discussing the topic. "We needed to get stops and make plays on the offensive end".
The Celtics team had its heart ripped out for the second game in a row at the Boston Garden.
The series now shifts to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 on Sunday and Tuesday with outmanned Boston just trying to bring it back home for Game 5 next Thursday. You still go to jail, I think, when you're texting and you end up killing somebody, but you might not have meant to do that; all I care about is what I saw.
The Philadelphia 76ers have two players up for Rookie of the Year honors.
Part of the reason that the Cavs played even better in Game 2 than they did in Game 1 is because the Celtics downsized and played right into the Cavs hands.
"We have a veteran ball club", James said. "And with the faults that we do have, we try to get better and better at it so we can be as great as we can be every, single night".
"I am a guy that lives in the moment", said James. When he went back to the locker room our training staff and doctors got with him. However, this is a team that we've underestimated all season-particularly myself when it came to the young bench-and they've always delivered.
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are on the verge of making their second consecutive 10-0 start to the National Basketball Association playoffs when they face the Boston Celtics today.
"I look at LeBron like Shaq (Shaquille O'Neal)", said Lue.
In a postgame interview with CSNNE, the Celtics' local broadcast partner, an emotional Al Horford, typically soft-spoken in his media sessions, shouted in excitement while celebrating the win.
James' run of scoring at least 30 points ended at eight straight playoff games. It was a quiet night for LeBron James, who finished with 11 points, six rebounds and six assists.
"They have a scrappy team", he said.
Up 3-0 in the series, Leonard has yet to return to the court after the incident as the Warriors get set to go for a sweep on Monday night. But I don't want to put that on any one guy. "We were getting good shots on offense and playing with great objective, and on defense I thought we were much better than the score indicated".
