LeBron, Cavs push Celtics to Game 7

NBA: Celtics push James, Cavs to brink with Game 5 win Cleveland Cavaliers: What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 5

It would have been more fitting had that ice been wrapped around his shoulders, because the load he's being forced to carry this entire postseason appears to be too much for one man to bear.

After the Boston Celtics dropped Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals in Cleveland, Coach Brad Stevens made key defensive adjustments at home, fueling a 96-83 win over Cleveland at home on Wednesday night.

And in the most crucial game of the season, James, brilliant these entire playoffs, was average.

The Celtics know how much more comfortable they would be closing out at home, but James in a game seven is a different monster.

On that Miami team, James had a lot of help.

CLEVELAND - No one cancels trophy presentations like the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But they had no answer for James.

"Yeah, that has to be our mindset", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue.

Unlike many of his fellow rookies, the youngster has been part of a championship-contending team and has played an important role all year. The Cavaliers' role players shoot better at home, and Boston's offense gets a big spike from its home crowd. He scored the Cavs' opening basket and never looked back, finishing with 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted or worn down".


Cavaliers: Improved to 6-2 in elimination game since 2015. We have this work ethic and you see him every day putting in the work, putting his mind, his body into it.

Tatum is closing in on an National Basketball Association record: most postseason points by a rookie. He finished the game with 14 points, and fans raved on Twitter about his performance after the win.

Game 6 is set for Friday night. He functioned as a dutiful screen setter and chipped in 6 points and 2 offensive rebounds for good measure. LeBron James has taken the court in seven straight NBA Finals.

"I think that we misuse the word "development" sometimes", Stevens said of Tatum.

As officials and other players intervened Celtics guard Terry Rozier raced into the fray and pushed Nance. You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can, and I think one of the strengths of this team has been moving on.

The "trusted" players on this Cavaliers team are older.

A 9-0 Cavs run reduced the deficit to 12 points, but Cleveland came up empty on their next four attempts. "But it must've gotten to him because he got up and he did his little whatever you want to call it".

The victor of the series will take on either the reigning champion Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets in the championship series.

Those media and social media haters are preparing to push up their delivery date of hate.
