James finished the game with 26 points on 50.0 percent shooting from the field, but the Cavs needed more than that to steal this road game.
Only this time it was even more remarkable because of what happened before it. If that comes to pass, the true challenge will be finding a way to buck the trend of the series and get a win when they head back to Boston for Game 7. LeBron James - who else - led the way with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. "It's given him an opportunity to make fail plays or make mistakes and be able to learn from them and still be able to be on the floor".
The lopsided loss was the Cavaliers' third consecutive setback at TD Garden in the Eastern Conference Finals, and forced them into a must-win situation in Game 6 of the best-of-seven series at Quicken Loans Arena tonight.
Is LeBron a hero if heavily favored Cavaliers beat upstart Celtics?
The Celtics have two chances to go to their first Finals since 2010 - the past year a non-LeBron team represented the East. Louis and prestigious alum of Chaminade Prep - played the lead role in his Boston's 96-83 home court victory in Game 5.
"Just a lot of heart, a lot of grit, bring resilient", James said.
"He looked a little exhausted to me", Lue said.
An energized Cleveland team then twice whittled the deficit to eight points before the Celtics reasserted themselves to lead 53-42 at half-time.
Two in critical condition, one in custody after shooting at Noblesville school
There was a communicated threat to Noblesville High School this morning, but it appears the threat was unfounded, Jowitt said. The suspect is believed to have acted alone, spokesman Bryant Orem of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office told the AP.
"We have one game to be able to compete for a championship, and what more could you ask for?" You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can, and I think one of the strengths of this team has been moving on. I just think that we can't get caught up in thinking about all the things we can't control. He has played 16 games thus far though the Cavs record is well below those Bulls at 10-6. 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. And no player is better when his back is against the wall than James. This is arguably the worst team that LeBron has been on since his first tour of duty with the Cavaliers.
"That means that's a guy that's all about winning, and whatever it takes to win", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. After playing a full 82-game regular season, and logging monster minutes throughout the playoffs, it would not be surprising if he were tired.
That, likewise, put the green and white Celts one win away from gaining a seat in the NBA Finals. "I felt so slow on that play".
