LeBron goes off to set up a winner-take-all Game 7

Brad Stevens Keeping His Cool About Game 7 In Boston

The Boston Celtics entered Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Finals matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers in need of a shake up.

Obviously, they were happy to be heading back to Cleveland with a 3-2 series lead and with that, a chance to punch their ticket to the NBA Finals with a victory tonight. Rozier had eight points, six assists, six rebounds and three steals for the Celtics. Tatum said the biggest thing that stuck with him was that Bryant noted how Tatum's foot sometimes points toward the midcourt stripe during drive attempts from the corner instead of at the basket to promote a stronger angle of attack. Seventeen of those points came in the second quarter, when he made his first three 3-pointers of the game and attempted his first six free throws.

The last time the Cavs faced an elimination scenario - which means the last time they had to deal with the whole "LeBron's last game" narrative - was Game 7 of the first round against the Pacers.

With his Cavaliers on the brink of elimination, many have begun to speculate that a loss on Friday night to the Celtics would mark the end of the reign of King James in Cleveland.

"Not at all", he said.

The Celtics shot just 36.5 percent from the floor in Game 5, but they fired off 85 shots - 11 more than the Cavaliers did.

And not everybody has his game analyzed and scrutinized every time there's a greatest-of-all-time conversation made about National Basketball Association players. "His talent, his composure, where he comes from has allowed him to be successful so he's a very, very, very good player already and he definitely at this pace can become a great player".

The victor of the series will take on either the reigning champion Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets in the championship series. He had 13 points in the first quarter alone. Thank God, we're going home next, and hopefully, we'll play better and force a Game 7.

"I've loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here", LeBron admitted."He's just a true professional". Game 5 was the most poorly played game of the series by both teams to this point. I'm fine. And I didn't mention the fatigue either.

"It's my first year. It's win or go...go to Cancun".

The Cavs and Celtics will head back to Boston for game five of the playoffs on May 23.

After a hard defensive play by Morris sent Larry Nance Jr. into the first row of seats, Morris appeared to wander over and say something.
