Tyronn Lue: LeBron James Will Be Great in Game 6

Game 6 is in Cleveland on Friday night, with the decisive seventh game back in Boston on Sunday if necessary.

The Wine & Gold came into Friday night's elimination game at The Q with their backs against the wall. "I think that the way in which he's done that and all of the years now that he's made The Finals and gone deep into the playoffs, it's unbelievable".

'We needed him to be big and he was big, ' Lue said after another epic game from James. The C's have lost by an average of 14.5 points on the road in the playoffs. Does anyone feel confident that they can overcome the magic of LeBron James? "I think he's the all-time leading scorer on elimination games, so add this to it". "But to have him on our side, it kind of lets me take a deep breath of fresh air".

Reflecting on Wednesday night's 96-83 Game 5 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tatum showed just way National Basketball Association legends like Paul Pierce and Kobe Bryant have been raving about him. "It's just something special". Love, who suffered a concussion and missed a game in the 2016 Finals and had another one in March, might miss Sunday's game if put into the league's concussion protocol.

The Cavaliers fought off elimination without Kevin Love, who left in the first quarter after colliding with Tatum. According to Game Score, a metric created by John Hollinger to give a rough measure of a player's productivity for a single game, James (15.3 game score) and Love (10.7) each had their second-worst performance in this series, which further illustrates that, without help from at least one other member of the supporting cast, the Cavaliers look doomed. Several left before the game had officially ended.

The Cavs finally went on their run in the second quarter to close the gap to just four points at halftime after trailing by as many as 12.

Hill totaled 26 points and Smith 20 in Games 3 and 4 at The Q. Not only that, but he was also a ideal 5-for-5 from the floor while being a plus-10.

"Our goal going into the series was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible and try to be as good as we can on everybody else", Stevens said.

Larry Nance Jr. rounded out the Cavaliers in double-figures - coming off the bench to finish with 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting to go with seven boards and a pair of steals.

De Villiers, Ali keep RCB's play-offs hopes alive
Speaking after the match, Kohli gave his opinion on the catch and referred to De Villiers as " spiderman ". We don't need superheroes such as Spider-Man, Batman or Captain America because we have AB de Villiers .

Morris was asked after the game about what he said to Nance. "Playoffs are a different animal".

For the Celtics, Terry Rozier was exceptional - hitting six from 10 from three-point range as he poured in a team-high 28 points and added seven assists - while Jaylen Brown continued his strong post-season, with 27 points. Love called his Game 7 availability a "toss-up" after the game, but that's probably even being optimistic.

In their two losses to Cleveland, the Celtics saw the Cavaliers shoot 49.2 percent (78 for 157). But it would certainly behoove them to put an end to this thing on Friday night in The Land.

James played all 24 minutes in the first half and exploded for 25 points, giving the Cavaliers a 54-43 lead at the break.

On Wednesday night, Boston shot just 36.5 percent and still won by 13.

Whether it was his two dagger threes late in the fourth quarter or a handful of other plays, James (somehow) continues to impress all of us.

By the Numbers - 34.9, 9.1, 5.1 ... LeBron up to 32, 7 and 7 and 0 minutes of rest.

"You've got to be poised".
