Boston Celtics looking to send LeBron James packing again

  • Brad Stevens Isn't Feeling Pressure Of East Finals

As the pressure and physicality intensifies with Game 6 and perhaps a Game 7 approaching, it will be interesting to see how this 20-year-old phenom adjusts. And any talk about James' future is on hold.

Tatum - proud native of St. Louis and prestigious alum of Chaminade Prep - played the lead role in his Boston's 96-83 home court victory in Game 5.

"Offensively, we just couldn't make shots", said Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue. "Gave it his all".

LeBron James is going to need a miracle if he's to reach the NBA Finals for the eighth straight time. "He carried us home as usual". He stayed down momentarily before leaving the game for good for further evaluation. "I was still trying to make plays, put our team in position to win".

That second one had James going - he knew the game was sealed. Jayson Tatum looked like a veteran out there as he led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks, Jaylen Brown added 17 points while Al Horford chipped in with 15 points and 12 rebounds.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers face a 3-2 series deficit in the Eastern Conference finals. Of course you didn't, so don't act surprised Cleveland forced Game 7 with a 109-99 win Friday. No one really knew why this was happening.

A hoard of Celtics surrounded the players before wrapping up Morris and keeping him away from Nance. "We wanted to play big a little more, but it was more to get two wings off the bench so that we could then rotate our wings with quick breaks around the timeouts if we could".

In Game 1, Boston doubled-up Cleveland in the first quarter 36-18 and never looked back. "You've got to find a way, whatever it takes".

"It should mean that he's gone, since he already did what he vowed to do, which was win a title for his hometown Cavs", Herring said of a loss. 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.

Lue was more candid than was his usual custom after the game, opining that his superstar and meal ticket, L. James, "looked a little exhausted to me, yes".

James also has some bitter memories in Boston.

If the first five games of the Eastern Conference Finals are any indication, the Game 6 result isn't hard to predict. Everyone had an opinion on what James will do next and that discussion filled the sports talk radio airwaves, bars and barber shops.
