Boston will use same starting lineup in Game 6

  • Kyle Korver has been incredibly efficient in the 2018 postseason

Boston's strategy has been simple but also incredibly hard to execute: Put your most muscular players in the game and hope they can withstand the beating James administers while also taking away Cleveland's other looks.

Despite having a better shooting percentage than the Celtics throughout Wednesday's contest, turnovers, struggles at the free-throw line and missed three-pointers proved to be the Cavaliers' downfall in the Game 5 loss in Boston.

The Celtics held James to two fourth-quarter points, earning their 10th straight victory in Boston to remain ideal at home this postseason and move within one win of their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010. With 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and leading the Cavs at +13 in James's 46 minutes of play, Game 6 was a stroke of genius. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

Teams that win Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series win 83 percent of the time. "I think it's just always keeping his body in the right position".

Terry Rozier paced the Celtics - now 1-6 on the road - with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown had 27. "We have to control what we can control, and that's play as well as we can".

And the Celtics' big Australian center didn't just help clean up the boards. James now has 13 career playoff games with at least 40 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists, the most such games in National Basketball Association postseason history.

The prestigious Cannes festival has come under criticism for failing to showcase more films by women directors. She further explained, "If actors ask such inflated fees it will leave nothing for actresses".

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue altered his rotation to squeeze in extra rest for James at the end of the second quarter, which is unusual. Fortunately for them, the Cavs played worse.

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

“But we got Bron out with two-and-a-half minutes, and at the start of the fourth he wasnt ready to go. The game showed why no one should be holding out hope for a Cavs comeback.

Love did not return to the game. Game 6 is in Cleveland, where the Cavs have won seven straight. "Guys are going to be physical, especially with me being the young guy". The Celtics were 10-0 in the playoffs at home in 1986. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down or whatever the case may be".

"I think he will be the first to tell you that he enjoys playing in these types of games", Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said following the game.

In Game 4 of the Cleveland series, Tatum moved ahead of Jerry West (275 points) on the rookie postseason-points list.
