Starting Aron Baynes proves to be ‘right decision’ for Boston Celtics

  • Boston's young guns star as Celtics blast Cavs for 3-2 series lead

Since he first reached the playoffs in 2006, other teams have won 26% of their elimination games.

It's win or go home for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they welcome the Boston Celtics into Quicken Loans Arena on Friday night. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

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

All of those were fitting moments, but one that occurred recently may have officially solidified Donovan's "arrival" - he starred in the latest episode of Bleacher Report's renowned "Game of Zones" that dropped Thursday. I n their last Game 6 in which they trailed 3-2, in the 2016 Finals against the Warriors, he posted his second straight game of 41 points.

"Well, initially (Celtics coach Brad Stevens) has been putting Semi Ojeleye in, so that's been Kyle's matchup when he comes in the game", Lue said.

But you might also get 24 points on 7-for-15 shooting from Tatum, a Rookie-of-the-Year candidate who found his confidence from 3-point range, launching triples off the dribble like he did during the regular season. It's just guys trying to be stronger and bigger than me, so they're just trying to be more physical. Boston, on the other hand, finished as the two seed in the Eastern Conference without their two best players. The Truth says that while Tatum has looked unflappable in postseason play, he thought the pressure of the playoffs became too overwhelming for someone like Ben Simmons.

Jayson Tatum is in the midst of a tremendous rookie season and, even with full knowledge that he has taken a back seat to Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell at times during his maiden National Basketball Association voyage, sky-high expectations exist for the No. 3 overall pick. Boston has a healthy amount of respect for the superstar standing in its way, even as James insists his streak of playing in the Finals seven consecutive times doesn't mean much to him.

LeBron James didn't have his best stuff in Game 5. I like what we've done the last three games defensively, even Game 5 in Boston. If needed, Game 7 is in Boston.

A 9-0 Cavs run reduced the deficit to 12 points, but Cleveland came up empty on their next four attempts. "It just happens because I've been able to play with some great players". James finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists but committed six turnovers and looked exhausted at times. This is arguably the worst team that LeBron has been on since his first tour of duty with the Cavaliers. We've got to play well, and we understand that.

Another flawless performance by James should open up opportunities for the rest of the Cavs, continuing Boston's road struggles and extending the series.
