Boston Celtics stunned Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-83, to take the opening game in their Eastern Conference Finals in the NBA.

The Celtics took the fight to the Cavaliers right in the opening quarter as they took a 36-18 lead.

Boston eventually took the first half, 61-35. Although the Cavaliers tried to come back in the third, the Celtics have created a big cushion to coast in the fourth and post the convincing win.

Jaylen Brown topscored for Boston with 23 points while Marcus Morris added 21 while limiting LeBron James to a paltry 15 points and seven turnovers.

Veteran Al Horford came big in game 1 with 20 markers.

Kevin Love scored a team high 17 points for the shell shocked Cavaliers.
