MANILA, Philippines – Boston turned the game around behind Terry Rozier as the Celtics dumped the Cleveland Cavaliers, 107-94, to take a 2-0 series lead in the NBA Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday, May 15 (Wednesday, May 16, in Manila) at the TD Garden in Boston.

Rozier poured in 14 of his 18 points in the third quarter where the Celtics outscored the Cavaliers, 36-22, to wrest momentum after trailing almost the entire first half of Game 2 of the best-of-7 series.

LeBron James, held to just 15 points in Game 1, rebounded with a huge triple-double of 42 points, 10 rebounds, and 12 assists but still couldn’t tow the Cavs to victory.

Jaylen Brown paced the Celtics with 23 points while Al Horford had 15 points and 10 rebounds.

In Game 1, Brown also scored 23 points and Horford added 20 to power the Celtics over Cleveland, 108-83, last Sunday.
