The Cavaliers looked like they just couldn’t keep up and that isn’t the norm for a James-led team.

Tommy Suggs, longtime South Carolina color analyst and former Gamecocks QB: It’s just like a running back. You can stop a great running back four times, and the fifth time, he breaks it for 60 yards. And Clowney was the same way.

Jeffery: He didn’t even run straight. The quickest way to the ball is always a straight path. His path was actually about two or three yards to his left. Then he got back up and still hit the running back as he was getting the ball. You have to understand how fast you have to be to do that.

They’re not quite at full health yet with Thomas still being out and Tristan Thompson still recovering, but those two aren’t going to completely solve these issues.

Does this mean the Celtics are far and above the Cavaliers? Definitely not. We should still give the benefit of the doubt to James and company because, quite simply, they have one of the best players in the world and maybe this season’s MVP.

But this game shows us the gap isn’t as far apart as we may have thought it was and it’s closing with every game the Celtics play. Watch out, Cleveland.

Opponent winning percentage: .504; 15th-hardest. The Rams finished first in scoring after finishing last in 2016, becoming just the second team to complete that turnaround according to the Elias Sports Bureau (the first was the 1965 49ers). What makes that even more impressive is the Rams played a group of opponents who finished the season above .500.

Opponent winning percentage: .461; sixth-easiest. The Eagles matched a franchise record with 13 wins and finished fourth in FPI. Playing the sixth-easiest schedule might have helped. The Eagles went 9-0 against teams who finished .500 or worse.

Next season, they’ll likely be terrible again and the Celtics will be rewarded with their unprotected first-round pick.

As part of the trade with the 76ers, the Celtics received the rights to the Lakers’ 2018 first-round pick, so long as it falls between picks No. 2-5. Otherwise, the 76ers keep it.

Pitcher who gave up home run to Tim Tebow throws perfect game in minors

Safe to say, Domenic Mazza has shaken off the home run he gave up to Tim Tebow.

Mazza, a Giants minor leaguer, threw a nine-inning perfect game Tuesday for Augusta (Ga.) against Lexington (Ky.) in the Single-A South Atlantic League. Mazza struck out nine batters; as impressively, he needed just 85 pitches (60 strikes); that’s a huge reason he was allowed to go all the way and toss the first nine-inning perfecto in league history.

My agent actually kept things pretty quiet, Zeitler said Thursday night while preparing to take an early-morning flight to Cleveland. I know on Day 1 a couple of teams came in and started talking. As it went on, it came down to New Orleans and Cleveland.

It sounded like Cleveland just offered the best deal. My agent suggested I go with it.

Further, Zeitler said, he hasn’t had the chance to talk with too many people in Cleveland as to what the team’s vision is for him, its plans to improve after a 1-15 season, or whether Browns coach Hue Jackson is using the same offensive concepts used when he was the Bengals’ offensive coordinator. About everything Zeitler knows about the Browns stems from having played against them as an AFC North rival for the past five seasons while with Cincinnati.
