LeBron, Cavs push Celtics to Game 7

Marcus Smart jokes about not being named to NBA All Defensive Team

The last time James faced the Celtics in this situation, he ended up tossing his headband into the stands and stripping off his jersey in the tunnel to the visiting locker room after a 27-point, 19-rebound triple-double in an elimination Game 6 of the conference semifinals. Cleveland is making 9.6 three-point attempts per game against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, fewer than the team made against the Toronto Raptors (11.5) or Indiana Pacers (10.4). However, Boston made some adjustments for Game 5 to shorten their rotation to just seven players, and that clearly caused some problems for the Cavaliers. Rozier had eight points, six assists, six rebounds and three steals for the Celtics.

James, who battled fatigue in Wednesday's game five loss, played an incredible 46 of a possible 48 minutes in the game six win. "We didn't play well".

"I had my moments, but I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down whatever the case may be", he said.

"He looked a little exhausted to me", Lue said.

But the presser got better when a reporter asked an agitated and seemingly overwhelmed Lue if he knows what he's getting from his veteran team on a nightly basis or if it's akin to throwing a dart at the board. We got to win one there though, if we want to win the series. James said. "If I'd have told you at the beginning of the season we only needed one game to make the National Basketball Association finals, we'd take it". I just think that we can't get caught up in thinking about all the things we can't control.

Unfortunately for the Cavs, the answer is yes.

The movie stretches out too long, and could have dropped a few subplots and action sequences that feel tacked on at the end. Lucas and Howard are no strangers to each other, having worked together on Lucas' pre-Star Wars film, American Grafitti .

"[I was] still trying to make plays to help our team win", James said. After playing a full 82-game regular season, and logging monster minutes throughout the playoffs, it would not be surprising if he were worn out.

That being said, this Cavaliers team is much less convincing than any of those Heat teams.

"The focus that LeBron has on tonight's game is maybe the most he has ever had in his whole career and he is stressing that Tristan and everyone else have that same focus".

For one night, the Celtics will simply revel in sitting on the cusp of an improbable Finals trip.

The series is where it is because the Celtics won Game 5 96-83, even though they shot just 36 percent from the field.

LeBron James writhes in pain on the floor after suffering a suspected knee injury in the final quarter of the game. "His energy, his physicality. just very happy that he had a good game".
