Cavs coach Tyronn Lue: LeBron James will be great in Game 6

2018 NBA Playoffs: Celtics Rookie Jayson Tatum Watched Kobe Bryant 'Detail' Video 'Like 25 Times'

"It was something that he noticed - and I mean, it made a lot of sense when he pointed it out". "It's something that you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me".

After Game 5, much of the discussion centered around how James appeared lethargic with many openly wondering if the toll of 15 seasons (most extended by deep playoff runs) was showing on him. Oh...

"He delivered", Lue said.

Following a whirlwind offseason that saw the two teams change quite a bit, many expected that it would be the Celtics and Cavaliers duking it out for the Eastern Conference crown. The Celtics are 10-0 at TD Garden in the 2018 postseason. The 33-year-old star was sensational in Friday's 109-99 Game 6 win in Cleveland, posting a near triple-double to stave off elimination. He didnt play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop.”. And it was coach Lue, too, who opened the conversation regarding the MVP candidates health condition during the post-game interview with the press, saying: “He looked a little exhausted to me.” Lue said of James. With an already depleted roster that was missing Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, the Celtics needed their players to step up and make some noise in the playoffs. I'll do the same all day [Saturday] from before we leave to go to Boston, and then once we get into Boston I'll do that as well.

After the Boston Celtics dropped Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals in Cleveland, Coach Brad Stevens made key defensive adjustments at home, fueling a 96-83 win over Cleveland at home on Wednesday night. They outrebounded the Cavaliers, 45-39, and were more careful with the ball. Numerous turnovers were sloppy, careless passes. "I was able to play 46 minutes and I got my couple of minutes I guess". "I think he might have just banged his knee, but other than that, he's fine". He turned it over seven times when the Cavs won Game 4, 111-102. And no player is better when his back is against the wall than James.

The stumbling block was the "sunset" clauses, which would allow Iran to resume fissile material enhancement within a decade. At the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, a reliable opponent of the Iran deal , analysts were baffled.


George Hill enjoyed his best game of the series for the Cavaliers with 20 points, while reserve Jeff Green chipped in 14 and Larry Nance Jr. hit for 10 points.

Cavaliers: this was the seventh 40-point game for James this postseason.

"Guys really chipped in and helped in the absence of Kevin, and LeBron brought us home as usual", Lue said. "We look forward to having an opportunity to force a Game 7 (in Boston May 27)". "And one that when we review it, we'll look at it and figure out if we need to do more".

A 25-point quarter isn't huge, but in what was a very slow-paced game (89 possessions for each team), it was efficient.
