Boston Celtics looking to send LeBron James packing again

26 May 2018

"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".

The Cavs are in a unsafe spot.

Lose to Boston in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday, and James' legacy shouldn't take a hit. Win?

Game 6 is for everything. They can punch their ticket to the finals with a win in Cleveland (something they haven't done this series) on Friday night.

The Boston Celtics, reinvigorated by a return home, beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 on Wednesday (May 23) to move within one win of reaching the NBA Finals.

Chris Paul dealing with hamstring injury
After playing fantastic basketball in Game 3 , Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala missed the last game with a knee injury. Well, Paul had enough of Curry's notorious gesture in Game 5. "Who cares", he said. "That may sound insane , but I feel it".

Drained as he might've been in his "moments", it's not the only reason the Celtics are one win away from the National Basketball Association finals.

On the upside, throughout this series the home team has come out triumphant and the Cavs are playing at home tonight. "So I've just got to fight through it [and] keep my composure". If I had to pick one guy and choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron. There was plenty of roasting among all the rookies in the episode and sure I'm biased, but I'm pretty sure Donovan came out on top.

James won't have been helped by recent speculation surrounding his future. I think Jayson was ready to deal with everything that comes with this because of who he is and his family and all his coaches before, because he's a very emotionally steady, smart player that was going to perform at a high level at his age. Both James and Lue acknowledged that James looked exhausted - and after the game James told cleveland.com and ESPN that he has been losing sleep - but he is not "sick" as has been suggested on social media.

Now Stevens needs his team to show that same tenacity on the road, where Boston is just 1-6.

The Cavs' loss can't be blamed on possible fatigue for James. Game 5 was the most poorly played game of the series by both teams to this point.

Harvey Weinstein's attorney says he is 'lonely and angry'
Actress Rose McGowan , who accused Harvey Weinstein of rape , applauded the arrest of the Hollywood media mogul in NY on Friday. Harvey Weinstein's attorney described his client as "lonely and angry" before the disgraced film producer was charged with rape.

He didn't have his usual burst.

There's little LeBron James can do on the court to tarnish his legacy. His teammates are draining him.

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...

Tatum dazzled during the regular season, averaging 13.9 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, while starting 80 contests for the Celtics. Solid, but sub-par by his standards and he committed six turnovers and missed some makeable layups. J.R. Smith sank a floater to make it 63-50, and George Hill followed with a jumper of his own.

After the game, a reporter asked James about how he felt, which he seemed happy to address. In elimination games throughout his career, James has averaged 33.5 points per game.
