LeBron James Forces G7 With HISTORIC Performance

LeBron James Forces G7 With HISTORIC Performance

Boston's strategy has been simple but also incredibly hard to execute: Put your most muscular players in the game and hope they can withstand the beating James administers while also taking away Cleveland's other looks. He finished the game with 14 points, and fans raved on Twitter about his performance after the win.

LeBron James produced another epic playoff performance Friday as the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed alive in the National Basketball Association playoffs with a 109-99 victory over the Boston Celtics. Cleveland is making 9.6 three-point attempts per game against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, fewer than the team made against the Toronto Raptors (11.5) or Indiana Pacers (10.4). It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

You didn't get Kyle Korver into the game because the Celtics didn't play his matchup?


"Like I have always said, "game seven" are the two best words in sports". He played the game's first 35 minutes before resting, and expended enormous energy to keep the Cavs alive. Terry Rozier had his best game of the series with 28 points, including 6-of-10 on 3s, and Jaylen Brown put in 27, the Celtics' starting backcourt combining to shoot 21-of-34. "I felt so slow on that play". The Boston Celtics are averaging 102.6 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 101.4 points on 46.1 percent shooting. The three-time champion played the first 35 minutes without a break and then endured the final eight while nursing a sore lower leg.

"Our focus - LeBron's focus - is to win", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said.

Unfortunately for the Cavs, the answer is yes.


"I had my moments, but I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down whatever the case may be", he said. Additionally, they shot just 33 percent from three-point range.

While walking through the tunnel of Quicken Loans Arena to the locker room after the game, James stopped to talk with his sons. "You've got to be ready to play now". "I'm going to be hurting tomorrow".

Kevin Love was the only other Cavaliers player who scored in double figures in Game 5. Special night tonight. Special night in Game 4. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down or whatever the case may be". He said that Brad Stevens, the Celtics' coach, had mixed up his own rotations and that "kind of threw us for a loop".
