3 takeaways from Game 5 vs. Boston Celtics

How confident should the Celtics be going back home for Game 7? And any talk about James' future is on hold.

In the 2016 Fianls against the Warriors, James and the Cavaliers won three consectutive games elimination games, scoring 41 points in Games 5 and 6 and then putting together a triple double with 27 points, 11 assists and 11 boards to go with three blocks and two steals in the road victory.

"If I had to pick one guy and choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "Championship pedigree. Giving it his all". Oh, and he played 46 minutes and only had three turnovers. "He delivered. He carried us home as usual". The Celtics are now a ideal 10-0 at home and just 1-6 on the road.

"I can't say that on camera". 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. He lost Game 6 in the East semifinals in 2010 to the Celtics and was soon on his way to joining the Heat.

The Celtics made a late push, but James snuffed it out with massive back-to- back three-pointers in the final two minutes. Love's status for Game 7 is uncertain. "Understanding the situation and the moment that you're in and just a feeling you can't explain unless you've been a part of it". "We'll be ready on Sunday". "We all know how we get, especially at home in front of them and the energy we get off them". If they lose, they'll be watching the NBA Finals from home for the first time in four seasons. "It's up to us to see if we can come back here for one more". Five of Hill's seven shots came within the paint.

"I just felt someone fall into my leg and my leg kind of went in", James said. "It's very helpful information that I can take with me". "It's just something special". "I think we're in the business of enhancement".

Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-Boston 31 (Horford 9), Cleveland 44 (James 11). Everyone had an opinion on what James will do next and that discussion filled the sports talk radio airwaves, bars and barber shops.

"I've been fortunate enough to play some good basketball through my career", said the 33-year-old American.

"He's already off to such a great start", Pierce said.

For now, though, he's only going to Boston.

At East Brook Middle School, where a sign reads "A Great Place to Grow Up", parents gathered outside to collect their children. To Morristown Medical Center said that they brought the victims, but did not report either the number or condition.

The Cavs said Love is being evaluated for a concussion and being kept out as a precaution. Kevin Love left the floor after just five minutes and did not return.

As Love stayed down, the Cavs huddled around him.

James' floater with 21.8 seconds remaining wrapped up a 25-point half and helped usher the Cavaliers into the locker room with a 54-43 advantage.

"Well, I wasn't coming out in either case".

"Hopefully I'll get myself in a position to play great once again on Sunday".

"It sounds amusing, but I had to go find my Chipotle barbacoa", he said.

Game 2 was the most unique game of the series.

"Somebody made a mistake", Boston coach Brad Stevens said. You would be too if you scored 46 points in an elimination game and forced a brief moratorium on Michael Jordan comparisons. James' teams are 5-2 in Game 7s.

Hill totaled 26 points and Smith 20 in Games 3 and 4 at The Q.
