Boston's young guns star as Celtics blast Cavs for 3-2 series lead
26 May, 2018, 01:35
James and Love were the only two Cleveland players to score in double figures.
James is also trying to become the fifth player to play in eight consecutive Finals.
The Boston Celtics made the most of their home court advantage throughout this series, putting themselves a game away from taking down their Eastern Conference rivals. James scored 26 points on 11-for-22 shooting with 10 rebounds and five assists. If I could choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron. I know it's coming. Baynes has had trouble dealing with LeBron James while defending in the pick-and-roll, and Cleveland had success using James to attack him in isolation on several occasions in Game 5. "But there's no question in my mind he'll bounce back tomorrow".
He's just playing, and he'll have to play two of the best games of his career to beat back a Boston team that believes it belongs.
The dustup occurred with about 10:47 remaining in the first half Wednesday at TD Garden.
With the Celtics now holding a 3-2 lead in the series, Game 6 is Friday night in Cleveland.
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was answering a question about Boston's defense on LeBron James during a teleconference when he tripped the security system at his home.
"We have another opportunity on Friday to be as good as we can be, play Cavs basketball on our home floor and force a Game 7".
Back and forth the Celtics went, arguing who deserves the title of greatest player ever.
Boston won the rebounding battle 45-39.
The Celtics know they are capable of disrupting James, because the turnovers have been a problem all series long.
LeBron James sat closest to the locker room door in the aftermath of another bad road loss, mostly silent with both knees wrapped in ice.
He pushed as hard as he could in Game 5, but for one of the only times in what has been a transcendent 13th postseason, he couldn't summon greatness.
Many ways exist to demonstrate the only peer James has for his age is Michael Jordan.
While James has looked exhausted, his teammates should pick him up in front of the home crowd and play their best when it matters the most. He got little help from his teammates, who combined to shoot 38.5 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from three-point range.
The Boston Celtics maintained their flawless home record, and once again put all the pressure on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavs got off to a rocky start, with five first-quarter turnovers almost matching their 7 field goals.
James handles the ball more than anyone, so he has more chance to make mistakes.
Brad Stevens opted to swap Marcus Morris out of the starting lineup in favor of Aron Baynes, giving Boston the size to match Cleveland's frontcourt of Tristan Thompson and Kevin Love. J.R. Smith sank a floater to make it 63-50, and George Hill followed with a jumper of his own. He scored five of his seven points in Game 5 from the free throw line.
Knowing James, he'll come out for Game 6 looking like the most vibrantly awake human being alive and we won't have to discuss this again. That season, Boston knocked out James and the Cavs in six games in the second round, and James left the Cavs for the Miami Heat.
"We are one game away from our ultimate goal of making it", Rozier said.
James, by the way, denies he's running on fumes.
"I felt like it was great for us defensively", Al Horford said of Boston's return to its roots.
Although the court case didn't end as Michael hoped, he did appear to enjoy the attention of going to court. Michael Rotondo said he does have a job, but wouldn't answer any questions about the line of work he's in.
Mathews said that police last had contact with Tilghman in 2003 when he was 13 and arrested for domestic assault and battery. Just before 6:30 PM local time, authorities say a gunman walked into Louie's Bar and Grill and began firing with a handgun.
Worse yet, it subsequently sent the recording to a person in Seattle who was in the family's contact list. One day she received a call from her husband's employee telling her to unplug the devices immediately.
As the SUV is then seen driving off, a man falls out of the passenger's side of the auto and the man strikes him with the weapon. NBC10 reports that the incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, in the parking lot of a business on East Luzerne Street.
The First Amendment guarantees our right to free speech, yes. "But I understand if they felt the need to protest". All NFL players on the field during the singing or playing of the national anthem at league games will stand.
The official said that if they were unhappy with how things panned out they would seek a ministerial meeting and then decide. The U.S. and Europe are divided on how to move forward after President Trump made a decision to exit the deal.
Democrats demanded to receive the same briefing. "I think James Comey's got a lot of problems", Trump said Wednesday. Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was also included in the first meeting.
