LeBron James dominates against Celtics to keep Cavaliers' NBA Finals hopes alive

NBA: Celtics push James, Cavs to brink with Game 5 win

LeBron James had another unbelievable performance to help the Cavaliers force a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals. The series is now tied at 3-3, with Game 7 in Boston set for Sunday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost a grind of a Game 5, 96-83 in Boston Wednesday and are now facing elimination in Friday's Game 6. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday. ESPN is included in the Hulu Live TV package so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Cavs Celtics Game 6 battle online. I just think that we can't get caught up in thinking about all the things we can't control.

One user on Twitter pointed out, "I don't know what's more awesome, that the Cavs need 37 year old Kyle Korver to be their 3rd best player or that he's doing it".

Terry Rozier had 28 points and Jayken Brown added 27 for Boston. "We need him though". "It sounds insane because of the talent of the Warriors, but just the way their switching defense has given Golden State problems over the years, that gives the Celtics confidence". The three-time champion played the first 35 minutes without a break and then endured the final eight while nursing a sore lower leg. "We've got to come out ready to get our nose bloody and our mouth bloody". James finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists but committed six turnovers and looked exhausted at times.

"If I had to pick one guy and choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "Know we've played well at home, but we have to beat them". 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.

The Cavs announced an hour later at halftime that Love wouldn't return.

There was the running one-hand banker at the buzzer in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the top-seeded Toronto Raptors, ending a night during which he had 38 points.

The question now becomes whether or not the magic of the new, old starting five will hold heading into Game 6. The Celtics were 10-0 in the playoffs at home in 1986. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted or worn down".

"The goal for that change was we're going to have to play big some", Brad Stevens told reporters after the game.
