LeBron James has a habit of chasing down the opposition for enormous blocks come the postseason. You may remember a certain block he had in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last season.
This block may not carry anywhere near the same ramifications, but it shows that James is as fresh as ever as he looks to move to 10-0 overall in the 2017 playoffs.

James is frightening to face in a seven-game series as it is. But a rested LeBron? The Celtics could find themselves in a deep hole if they don’t come back from a 14-point first quarter deficit in Game 2 that would give them losses in the first two games of the series at home.
