CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Cavaliers have had plenty of time to prepare for their opponent, in fact they'll have had 10 days of rest before they hit the hardwood in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics.

The Cavs will open up the series on the road, in Boston Wednesday night at TD Garden as they begin their quest to make a return trip to the NBA Finals.

While talking to the media Wednesday, LeBron James said he and his teammates have been focused on this series since they wrapped up Round 2 against the Raptors. 

"We've been focused this whole week. We got a couple days off, Monday and Tuesday, since we clinched versus Toronto but since then we've been putting in work, mentally and physically," said LeBron James. "It's going to be very challenging for us, but it should be it's the postseason."

James also said starting on the road is no difference than starting at home. 

"It doesn't matter, it's the playoffs. It doesn't matter, starting at home or on the road you should be focused and if you're not you shouldn't be part of the playoffs anyway," James added. "We're playing against a worthy opponent and we look forward to the challenge."
