Lebron James dominates Boston Celtics to force game 7

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts in the second half against the Boston Celtics during Game Five of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on May 23, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cavs in Cleveland, added 11 rebounds and nine assists while playing all but two minutes - to avoid elimination and delay any decisions about where he'll continue his remarkable career next season.

Exactly 3,657 days ago, James and the Cleveland Cavaliers walked into TD Garden and couldn't overcome the eventual National Basketball Association champion Boston Celtics, falling 97-92 in the 2008 Eastern Conference semifinals. "Our team is built on me being out on the floor to be able to make plays, not only for myself but make plays for others". Another flawless performance by James should open up opportunities for the rest of the Cavs, continuing Boston's road struggles and extending the series. "It's just something special". But we need the whole city of Boston to be behind us. James tops Jordan in more categories, but the Bulls being a far better team plays into it as well. There is a greater than even chance the Cavs do not advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2014, and James does not advance to the last round for the first time since 2010. "He delivered. He carried us home as usual". A short while later, James tossed in a pair of step-back fadeaway treys from the vicinity of Shaker Heights, and it was time for the Celtics to go home. He was taken to the Cavs' locker room shortly after. Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 24 points for his ninth 20-point game in the playoffs, tying Donovan Mitchell and David Robinson for second all time among rookies.

"The question about did we go to him enough, probably a good question", Stevens said.

James scored 45 that day and the Cavs survived.

So, Lue didnt play his third-best player this series in a pivotal Game 5 because the Celtics didnt play their eighth-best player.

Love suffered a concussion in the regular season and also had one in the 2016 Finals.

It's only fitting that the Eastern Conference finals are coming down to a Game 7. He walked unsteadily to the bench with guard George Hill holding one of his arm.

Blocked Shots: 9 (Green 2, Korver 2, Thompson 2, Hill, James, Smith). The Celtics prefer to defend the Cavaliers one-on-one, and since Cleveland has no other one-on-one scorer besides James - which is why they miss Kyrie Irving more than the Celtics do - the offense becomes too one-dimensional.

Cavaliers: Improved to 6-2 in elimination game since 2015. Only Clyde Drexler (when he was 29) and Larry Bird (when he was 30) have put up as many points, assists, and rebounds in one postseason.
