Loosey, goosey

Midway through LeBron James' pre-game ritual with the media, Cavs guard Mo Williams made the announcement: "Sorry, media, but the locker room is closed."

The 50 reporters and cameramen didn't pay much attention to Williams, but it showed just how loose the Cavs were for one of the biggest games of the year.

Guys were laughing, joking and having fun before the game. You'd never know they were about to play a game that could decide the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

Obviously, things never materialized on the court. They were smashed by the Boston Celtics, 105-94. They just weren't able to muster any consistency.

The Celtics were a better team on the night. That started with the coaching staff, too. Coach Mike Brown credited the Celtics' coaching staff for getting their team ready to play.

For the Cavs, they had fun - at least before the game.
