LeBron James' 44 points bring Cavs all even vs. Celtics

Share

The only certainty about LeBron James's future is that nobody bar the three-time National Basketball Association champion himself knows what he will do in the summer. Brown was 3-of-8 shooting for 10 points. James also recorded his 25th career post-season game with at least 40 points - his sixth in this post-season. Morris has been given the primary responsibility for containing James by Celtics Coach Brad Stevens, but the "King" converted on eight of 12 attempts from the floor, and was flawless in three three-point tries, on Saturday, as the Cavaliers went on to win 116-86.

"We could see the mistakes we made", Brown said, "and [Stevens] made it apparent that we beat ourselves first and foremost".

The Cavs now have won seven straight home playoff games after a 98-80 loss to IN in Game 1 of a first-round series that seems an increasingly distant memory.

Kyle Korver was flawless in the first half.

"He's the best in the game at evaluating the court and figuring out what he wants", Boston coach Brad Stevens said of James. Kevin Love had just nine points on 3-of-12 shooting and was in foul trouble, but he made a big 3-pointer and follow shot in the fourth quarter. He did grab 11 rebounds.

As for the Cavs, Tom Withers of the Associated Press has reported that the team is going to stick with the same first-five unit it rolled out in Game 3. Jayson Tatum had 17 points, Jaylen Brown had 23 points, Al Horford had 15 and Marcus Morris had 10. In Game 2 James went off dropping a forty burger, but the Cavs' supporting cast put in a performance that would make Nicolas Cage cringe. That moved him into first place all time, eclipsing the previous mark of 2,356 held by Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Cleveland, who shot 50 per cent from the field, opened a 68-53 lead.

Boston shot 7-for-21 on jumpers that were taken between eight and 24 feet from the basket during Game 3.

Boston managed only 37 percent shooting from the field in the first half.

The victor will face either defending champion Golden State or season wins leader Houston in the NBA Finals starting May 31.

Though the Cavs got some decent support around James - George Hill (13 points), Kyle Korver (14) and Tristan Thompson (13 points, 12 rebounds) all reprised their roles from the Game 3 blowout - it was still dicey at times in the second half. Isolation basketball and long 2-pointers, meanwhile, make the game more hard for them.

So far he’s performing as expected, notching impressive rebounding and blocking numbers in heavy Summer League minutes. It’s undeniable at this point that this rookie class is going to generate a lot of attention for a long time to come.

Lue said the Cavs need to carry the momentum from the last two home wins back to TD Garden for Game 5.
