Celtics Notes: Boston Can’t Overcome LeBron James’ Greatness In Game 6

The toll 82 regular season games and 16 playoff games has taken on James was evident on May 23 when the Cavs were beaten by the Celtics, 96-83, in Game 5 in Boston. Game 6 is in Cleveland, where the Cavs have won seven straight.

"It feels good to just to be able to play for another game", James said. But if Cleveland doesn't figure out how to counter Stevens's defensive adjustments and get some help for James, the Cavs will have nearly no chance of making the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year. James has beaten them all.

If you're still interested in betting against LeBron James with his back against the wall, you'll get another chance in less than 48 hours. J.R. Smith sank a floater to make it 63-50, and George Hill followed with a jumper of his own. Catch up on all the top individual performances around the league in the Top Performers series.

Event the Cavs' coach, Ty Lue, couldn't believe it.

James led the way for the Cavs with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. "We wanted to play big a little more, but it was more to get two wings off the bench so that we could then rotate our wings with quick breaks around the timeouts if we could".

Even LeBron James might not be able to save these Cleveland Cavaliers

Another sign came late in the third quarter as Jayson Tatum drove to the basket with James in hot pursuit.

To a Boston fan, the only Cav one wouldnt want to be in the Cleveland lineup outside of All-Stars James and Kevin Love, is Korver.

And James appeared reluctant to even attempt to dominate in the paint, opting to initiate most of his offense from the perimeter. "I'm pretty sure a lot of guys are exhausted".

Not everybody spends a million and a half dollars a year to keep his body in shape. Of course you didn't, so don't act surprised Cleveland forced Game 7 with a 109-99 win Friday. A pair of off-balance, step-back three-pointers going to his left-a move that's not-so-quietly become his signature, iced the game. The Cavaliers will have to replicate their efforts from Games 3 and 4 to extend their season. Another added, "The Cavs are really 2 games away from the NBA Finals with 37 year old Kyle Korver as their 2nd best player". The first thing Bryce Maximus James said to his dad is the question on everyone's minds.

May 25 at Quicken Loans Arena, Tyronn Lue is confident James will be rejuvenated and ready to go. "But I think just by doing that, it was a change that worked in our favor".
