Celtics vs. Cavaliers - Game Recap

  • Al Horford is double-teamed by the Cavs’ Le Bron James and Tristan Thompson as the Celtics were looking to reach the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010

Head coach Tyronn Lue of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of the National Basketball Association game against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena on March 13, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. Korver played just 19 minutes in Game 5, the fewest since the Round One opener against in when Korver wasn't healthy.

Tatum - proud native of St. Louis and prestigious alum of Chaminade Prep - played the lead role in his Boston's 96-83 home court victory in Game 5.

The Boston Celtics, leading 3-2 in the best of seven NBA Eastern Conference Finals, meet the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James in an elimination game on Friday, May 25, 2018 (5/25/18) at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

"Yeah, every time we watch". You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can, and I think one of the strengths of this team has been moving on. "I know we'll shoot the ball better and play better offensively at home".

Terry Rozier paced the Celtics - now 1-6 on the road - with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown had 27. He didnt play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop.”.

The 20-year-old becomes the first Celtics player to receive the nod since Paul Pierce in 1998-99.


Unlike many of his fellow rookies, the youngster has been part of a championship-contending team and has played an important role all year.

Nope, turns out head coach Tyronn Lue simply didn't like Korver's matchup.

Given LeBron James has made it to seven consecutive NBA Finals and won five consecutive Game 7s (including one earlier this postseason), it would seem foolish to bet against him Sunday night. The Cavaliers role players do nearly nothing on the road and that's the reason they're playing a second seven-game series these playoffs. Yet, again, the postgame narrative was how he looked exhausted. The rest of the #Cavs need to take notes.

"Now, we're facing elimination and we're going back home". "I'm going to be hurting tomorrow".

The Cavs announced an hour later at halftime that Love wouldn't return. I think that is a lot to ask.

There was the running one-hand banker at the buzzer in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the top-seeded Toronto Raptors, ending a night during which he had 38 points.
