Celtics hold home court, claim 2-0 lead over Cavs

BOSTON - The only thing that seemed to roar louder than the Garden crowd was Marcus Morris.

Boston's brash forward had spilled beyond the baseline finishing a third-quarter layup through the contact of Tristan Thompson and now, sitting at the feet of Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck in a game that would soon be tied, Morris turned towards Thompson lying next to him and repeatedly screamed directly in his face.

The sequence lit a fuse that had been dampened by the first-quarter offensive barrage of a clearly motivated LeBron James.
