The Boston Celtics, leading 3-2 in the best of seven NBA Eastern Conference Finals, meet the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James in an elimination game on Friday, May 25, 2018 (5/25/18) at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Cavs are averaging 113.5 points per game at home this series with James making 62.5 percent of his shots.

George Hill added 20 points, while Jeff Green and Larry Nance came off the bench to deliver 14 and 10, respectively. Terry Rozier had his best game of the series, with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown put in 27, the Celtics' starting backcourt combining to shoot 21-of-34. Of course you didn't, so don't act surprised Cleveland forced Game 7 with a 109-99 win Friday. There is Michael Jordan, there is LeBron James, and there is no one else.

"We're right there, man, right there", Boston's Marcus Morris told NBC Sports Boston last night. James' teams are 5-2 in Game 7s. He didn't play at all in the first quarter, as the offense languished and shots repeatedly clanged off the rim. He also scored 45 in a Game 7 loss for Cleveland in 2008, and now has a chance to boost his stunning resume further if he can get the Cavs to a fourth consecutive Finals. His always stellar free throw percentage was at 83% though he only got to the line 7.8 times per game (lowest of any championship run for him).

In 2012, he had 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in Game 6 for Miami, which went on to win Game 7 and the National Basketball Association title. But as Yahoo's Dan Devine points out, he also committed six turnovers and looked flat-out exhausted at some points during the game. "We've just played really bad in Boston, and they probably feel the same way with how they played in Cleveland".


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".

As Love stayed down, the Cavs huddled around him.

I'm fine. And I didn't mention the fatigue either. "I know what's at stake the next game". "But I think just by doing that, it was a change that worked in our favor".

But not everybody trains with former Navy SEALs to give him the most physically imposing physique in the game. Boston dug themselves a hole they weren't able to climb out of when they were outscored by 16 points in the opening quarter of Game 4. He functioned as a dutiful screen setter and chipped in 6 points and 2 offensive rebounds for good measure.
