Celtics, Cavs get in brief scuffle during Game 5

Boston's young guns star as Celtics blast Cavs for 3-2 series lead Boston Celtics, Jaylen Brown are one game from NBA Finals: 'Do what you've got to do to get that one win'

After a three-day break between Games 2 and 3, the East finals are now being played every other day, which seems to have affected other players.

Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James led Cleveland with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists.

Traditionally you do not want to face LeBron James in an elimination game, especially if you're the Celtics.

Down three games to two, with a must-win Game 6 set for 8:30 p.m.

James said that doesn't concern him.

"Well, initially, he's been putting Ojeleye in", Lue said of Stevens after the game Wednesday. "And I think that the deal is you can't ride the emotional roller coaster. I don't know who's all on the team, I haven't looked at all that stuff, but I know that any awards that come his way are well deserving". "But there's no question in my mind he'll bounce back tomorrow". His team is one win away from its first NBA Finals appearance since 2010.

There has been no place like home for the Celtics this postseason.

His Cavaliers down 3-2 to the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, how does LeBron James assess his situation?

"Yeah, that has to be our mindset", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue. "When we're all locked in, it's hard to play against us on the defensive and offensive end".

Tatum averaged 13.9 points and 5 rebounds during his 80 regular season games and led National Basketball Association rookies in three-point shooting percentage. It's just guys trying to be stronger and bigger than me, so they're just trying to be more physical.

How Unai Emery beat 7 other coaches to clinch Arsenal job
I believe we can develop the players who are here and the objective is together to work hard. "He's a proven victor ", he said. Emery told Arsenal's official website: "I am thrilled to be joining one of the great clubs in the game".


James is exhausted - for good reason. They outrebounded the Cavaliers, 45-39, and were more careful with the ball.

James drove past Jaylen Brown for a layup with 4:14 remaining, drawing a foul and making the free-throw to pull the Cavs within 19-15. "I think he's just starting to see his potential".

If the Eastern Conference Finals goes seven games, Tatum could have the record at the end of the series.

To examine that question, ESPN brought in NBA Insiders Chris Herring, Kevin Arnovitz, Micah Adams, Kevin Pelton, and André Snellings - none of whom give the Cavs more than a 50 percent chance to advance - and asked them how a loss tonight would change James' tomorrow.

Except, of course, if there's a Game 7 on Sunday in Boston. George Hill is 4-of-13 in Boston.

"I don't enjoy being in a position where you lose and go home, but just try to extend the series as long as I can and just try put myself and my team in position to continue to play", he said. "We look forward to having an opportunity to force a Game 7 (in Boston May 27)".

When told about Tatum being left off one of the first-team ballots, Boston head coach Brad Stevens couldn't understand it and believed there could only be one explanation.

Expand that search back to age 32 seasons and Jordan's age 32 shows up with James' 2017 playoff run to add to the list.

"I'm fine", he said.
