Gooning is a new one
ata

After last night's Game 2, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue accused the Celtics of "gooning the game up," words that did not particularly seem to concern Boston. Here's more from ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin on the Celtics' response to Lue's comments:

"I don't even know what to say to that," guard Jaylen Brown said. "I agree, I guess."

Boston forward Marcus Morris added his assessment.

"Gooning? That's a good word," Morris said. "S---, we're doing what it takes. Whatever it takes, every player, 1 to 15, whatever it takes, that's what we're doing. You call it what you want to call it. We're just trying to get the win."

...

"I mean, we just play hard," Celtics forward Al Horford said. "We go out there, we compete. It's Celtics basketball. We're really embracing Celtics basketball. We're playing hard. We've got each other's backs, and that's it."

But, it was the Celtics players that were upset with a foul late in the fourth quarter.

With 3:49 to play and Boston leading by eight, JR Smith pushed Al Horford in the back while he was attempting to finish an alley-oop. Following the play, Boston guard Marcus Smart confronted Smith and the pair exchanged words. Smith was called for a flagrant 1 foul after replay review.

Now the Cavs have to bring the fight to Game 3 at home on Saturday.

"We've got to be tougher, mentally and physically," Lue said. "We've got to come out swinging. We've got to be aggressive. I think we've got to be physical, and we've got to have a physical mindset, you know, that they're coming in, playing tough. They're aggressive, and we've got to match that."

Just post-game posturing. The Celtics kept the home court advantage, and LeBron's back is against the wall. Can't wait to see more gooning in game 3.
