Donovan Mitchell‘s remarkable performance, highlighted by a banked-in 3-pointer and subsequent baskets in the lane, propelled the Cleveland Cavaliers to a commanding 16-point lead against the Boston Celtics.

After suffering a 25-point loss in the series opener, the Cavaliers bounced back with an emphatic victory, leveling the Eastern Conference semifinal series at one game apiece. The series now shifts to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 on Saturday and Monday, respectively.

In contrast to the opener where Mitchell’s efforts were not complemented, the Cavaliers’ All-Star had a standout performance, contributing significantly with 33 points in the series opener. He showcased his versatility by not only scoring but also distributing the ball effectively with five assists. Mitchell’s dominance continued into the third quarter, where he scored 16 points and initiated a pivotal run at the start of the fourth quarter.

While Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the Celtics’ offensive effort with 25 and 19 points respectively, Derrick White, a key contributor in Game 1, struggled, managing only 10 points and missing several 3-point attempts.

Evan Mobley continued his impressive postseason performance, recording his third consecutive double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Caris LeVert provided valuable contributions off the bench, adding 21 points and sealing the victory with a pull-up jumper that extended the Cavaliers’ lead to 20 points in the fourth quarter.

The Cavaliers’ victory was highlighted by their strong defensive performance, limiting the Celtics to a mere 8-for-35 shooting from beyond the arc. With their first road win of the postseason, the Cavaliers demonstrated their ability to compete on hostile territory.

The magnitude of the Cavaliers’ win was underscored by its status as the largest playoff victory by a double-digit underdog since 1991, as reported by ESPN.

Despite missing key players like Kristaps Porzingis and Jarrett Allen due to injury, the Cavaliers showcased resilience and depth, overcoming an early deficit to secure a crucial victory and shift the momentum in the series.
