LeBron James and his steel Shaft Drive are leading the Cavs to a hot start this season. LeBron is averaging 26.7 ppg, while shooting 50.3% from the floor, 38.2% from three and 83.1% from the line. King James also averages 5.1 rpg, 3.8 apg, and 1.11 spg. Larry Hughes was one of the big off-season pickups for the Cavs and he is averaging 15.3 ppg, 4.1 rpg, and a team high 4.6 assists. Hughes is turnover prone with 3.33 a game. Zydrunas Ilgauskas is still solid with 14.0 ppg to go with 8.8 rpg (4.7 offensive). Donyell Marshall is working towards 6th man of the year with 12.0 ppg and 8.0 rpg as a backup to Drew Gooden. Gooden has 11.8 and 8.8 to go with 1.78 bpg and impressive 52.6% shooting. Damon Jones has 9.6 ppg with solid shooting, 46.2% from the field and 44.2% from three.
The Cavs as a team are dominating the boards with a +9.5 margin, as well as +5.2 on the offensive glass. This will definately prove to be a test for the Celtics who don't have the experienced big men you want going against Zydrunas, Gooden, Marshall, and Alan Henderson.
For the Celtics to win this game, neutralizing the boarding of the Cavs big men will be necessary. The Cavs are shooting 46.7% from the floor this year and the Celtics cannot afford to give them too many second chances.
