Celtics, Cavs get in brief scuffle during Game 5

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

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

LeBron James, 33, not only played them all; he led the National Basketball Association in minutes played in the regular season.

The Celtics played two pretty bad games in Cleveland earlier this series when they were pounded by 30 in Game 3 and didn't recover from a slow first quarter in a 111-102 loss in Game 4.

The Celtics are too good at home: In order for the Cavaliers to reach the NBA Finals, they will now have to win Game 7 in Boston.

LeBron James dropped 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists on Friday night while leading Cleveland to a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics in a critical Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, marking his seventh 40-point game of the 2018 postseason. The chances of that happening are becoming more far-fetched every time the young Celtics enter the TD Garden.

Terry Rozier had 28 points and Jayken Brown added 27 for Boston. "We have to control what we can control, and that's play as well as we can".

A hoard of Celtics surrounded the players before wrapping up Morris and keeping him away from Nance. Kyle Korver inexplicably played just 19 minutes despite arguably being the team's second-best player in the playoffs.

"Our focus - LeBron's focus - is to win", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said. James scored 26 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, but he didn't dominate the game as he normally does. "I think the unfortunate events of the injuries that they've had have allowed him to, I believe, get better faster than I believe they expected here".

"A lot of our guys have a comfort level of being back home and playing off the fans and playing off our crowd, playing off that court, being more comfortable being back home for Game 6", James said. "We didn't play well".

That being said, this Cavaliers team is much less convincing than any of those Heat teams.

The Cavs announced an hour later at halftime that Love wouldn't return. "But I saw the ball and he was there and (I) just kind of went for it". The Cavs' backs are officially against the wall as they face a do-or-die game Friday night in Cleveland.

Meanwhile, Boston is now 10-0 at home during this postseason run.

Even though he is a member of the Celtics, Kobe surely recognizes and appreciates Tatum's outstanding feel for the game and advanced offensive repertoire. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down or whatever the case may be".
