LeBron, Cavs push Celtics to Game 7

  • Cleveland Cavaliers: What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 5

The dustup occurred with about 10:47 remaining in the first half Wednesday at TD Garden.

"We just can't expect coming home and in front of our great fans and crowd that we're going to win the game", Lue said.

"We know LeBron is different than a lot of other guys, but we've got to get the job done", Rozier said. I like what we've done the last three games defensively, even Game 5 in Boston. "We had an opportunity, but we didn't make enough plays".

James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cavs in Cleveland, added 11 rebounds and nine assists while playing all but two minutes - to avoid elimination and delay any decisions about where he'll continue his remarkable career next season. They outrebounded the Cavaliers, 45-39, and were more careful with the ball.




From the Rockets to the Lakers to the Sixers, James has been linked to a plethora of future landing spots despite publicly stating his sole focus is on winning another championship with the Cavs. James, who moved past Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone for the most First Team selections in National Basketball Association history, was one of two players (with James Harden) this season to be chosen unanimously by a select group of 100 media members and broadcasters from around the country. "I think the other three were attack turnovers, and I'm okay with that". The Cavs were ahead by just seven when he knocked down consecutive 3s - the second with 1:40 left - and he converted a layup and was fouled with 57 seconds left for a 109-97 advantage. The game was there for the taking, but the Cavs couldn't buy a shot when they needed it. "Know we've played well at home, but we have to beat them". Not on a night where Tristan Thompson scored a single point, J.R. Smith two and George Hill seven. Four of the five games have been decided by double digits, and the Celtics barely kept Game 4 within single digits when they lost 111-102.

"I don't enjoy being in the position where it's you lose and go home", LeBron said before Game 6 tonight in Cleveland. 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.

The first quarter of Game 5 ticked away with Kyle Korver, the Cleveland Cavaliers' third-leading scorer in the playoffs, plastered to the bench.

James, by the way, denies he's running on fumes.
