Joey Logano beat the best of the best on Sunday, winning the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers will battle in game two of the Eastern Conference Quaterfinals tonight at the Quicken Loans Arena.
In game one of the series, the Cavs found a way to stop Boston's offsense enough to take the advantage late in the second quarter and never looked back, taking a 113-100 victory.
Since game two is on the horizon, let us take a look at the keys to victory in game two.
Play Isiah Thomas More
In order for the Celtics to win this game, Thomas has to play more minutes. His 31 minutes in game one was not enough for the scoring he produced. Putting up 22 points in that amount of time, Thomas earned some extra minutes for game two. He should play at least 40 minutes in this game, the Celtics need to keep pace with the Cavs by matching buckets down the stretch.
Contain Kyrie Irving
It will be extremely difficult, but the Celtics must find a way to contain Irving. That does not mean completely focus the defense on him, but someone must take control and limit his precense. Force him to pass the ball, force him to make Kevin Love get going to win the game. Is Avery Bradley the answer? Is Marcus Smart the answer? It's unknown; but the Celtics must find it in order to win.
Get Evan Turner Going
Even though Turner played close to 35 minutes in game one, his scoring output must be more than the 12 he provided. During the last ten games of the season Turner averaged more than 15 points a game, something he is going to have to do in order for the Celtics to win. Get him going on pick and rolls, get him some open shots and make the Cavs cover him on the outside to open up the paint for Zeller and Bass.

The following article was released by the Dover International Speedway website, regarding the loss of a dedicated track employee:
Dover International Speedway is mourning the loss of a dedicated employee who died yesterday from injuries sustained during a multi-vehicle collision on I-476 in Broomall, Pa.
Jason Anderson, 33, senior director of ticket sales and operations for Dover International Speedway, died in the accident. Jason was a dedicated husband, father, employee and friend. He will be greatly missed.
“Jason’s death is a tragic loss for all of us who considered him a close friend as well as a loss for Dover International Speedway,” said President Mike Tatoian.
“He was an exemplary employee who always put customers and co-workers first. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family during this very difficult time.”
Anderson was a member of the Dover Motorsports, Inc. team for six years, and moved to Dover, Del. after operations were ceased at Memphis Motorsports Park.
