Celtics vs. Cavaliers live updates: NBA playoffs, scores, highlights as Boston shoots for 2-0 series lead

Must Read

The second round of the 2024 NBA playoffs continues on Thursday night, as the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers will go to work in Game 2 of their second-round series at TD Garden. In their Game 1 victory, the Celtics were led by Jaylen Brown (32 points), Derrick White (25) and Payton Pritchard, who scored 16 points off the bench.

Cleveland struggled to get anything going from deep, and without Jarrett Allen manning the paint, Boston absolutely dominated on the glass. Cleveland’s Donovan Mitchell said the improvement has to start on offense. The fourth-seeded Cavaliers have failed to score 100 points in six of their eight playoff games.

“We got [42] 3s up and we hit 11,” said Mitchell, who scored a game-high 33 points in Game 1. “I think the biggest thing now is just being able to hit and knock them down.”

After Thursday, the series shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 (Saturday) and Game 4 (Monday). The Celtics won two of their three games against the Cavaliers during the regular season, but Cleveland won the only game it played at home.
