Note to self—do not go away again during a Boston Celtics playoff weekend.

As much as I enjoyed my all too brief trip to New Orleans, great players build their legacies in the playoffs, and I missed two different players add to their own growing legacies in the two games I missed.

On Friday night, in Game Three, it was LeBron James’ turn to respond to all the questions about his elbow and all the questions about his team losing by 18 points on their home court in Game Two.

I fully expected James to come out firing in the first quarter and thought if the Celtics could survive the initial attack, they would be in good shape the rest of the way.

James did miss his first shot of the game, but then made his next eight. After one quarter, James had 21 points and the Cavaliers had a 36-17 lead.  James finished the game with 38 points (on 14-22 shooting), eight rebounds, and seven assists, and Cleveland cruised to the 124-95 win.
