Cavaliers strike first, rally for 101-93 win over Celtics in Game 1

It took 24 minutes, but the Cavaliers got some of their mojo back.  After getting out-hustled, out-worked and out-fought in the first half tonight, the Cavaliers came back from an 11-point deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 101-93.  LeBron James scored 35, while a Mo Williams dunk - part of a 16 point 2nd half outburst, propelled the Cavaliers to a huge Game 1 win.

How big was it?  In Best-of-7 series, the Cavaliers are 8-0 when they win Game 1.  Give the type of effort for the next 3 games that the Wine and Gold gave the 2nd half tonight and it could just be 9-0.

Use this thread to give your thoughts on the game.  There will certainly be more to come.
