"They're gooning the game up," Lue said of the Celtics after his team's Game 2 loss, per Brian Robb of Boston Sports Journal.
After winning 108-83 in Game 1, Boston came from behind to earn a 107-94 win in Game 2 on Tuesday. The matchup featured plenty of physicality, with two sets of double-technical fouls assessed.
The Cavaliers earned the only flagrant foul of the game when JR Smith pushed Al Horford in the air during a dunk attempt.
While dirty plays won't lead to more success for Cleveland, toughness and better intensity could help the Cavs turn things around in Game 3 at home Saturday.
