The Boston Celtics kept their march going another step closer to reaching the NBA Finals with a Game 1 win over Cleveland Cavaliers in a 108-83 win on Sunday afternoon. The charge was led by their young core group with Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum combined for 39 points in the blowout victory in a comfortable victory over the defending Eastern Conference Finals.

There have been many questions about whether their young talent can help push the team to an NBA title. According to Jared Weiss of The Athletic, veteran forward Marcus Morris voiced that he believes the youth of his teammates doesn’t factor into his team being unable to secure a championship.

The duo of Tatum and Brown are both playing at a high level as seasoned veterans being the leading offensive weapons. Brown is currently averaging 17.9 points on 48.7 percent shooting from the field and 41.5 percent from beyond the arc. This includes scoring double figures in all but twice with five 20-point outings in the process.

Meanwhile, Tatum has been one of the most surprising performers in this year’s playoffs averaging 18.8 points on 45.9 percent from the floor. He has scored in double figures all but twice with eight 20-point outings with five coming in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers. Both players have shown impressive pose with their play on the floor and have not looked overwhelmed at any point in time even in crucial moments of the game as each has stepped up to the challenge with crucial baskets.

These two will have to continue to be major offensive factors in order for the Celtics to edge the Cavaliers, especially after setting the tone of the series with an impressive Game 1 win. Cleveland is certainly going to come back a more motivated and focused team to even the Eastern Conference Finals before it heading to Quicken Loans Arena for Games 3 and 4.
