Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland?

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. If you look back at the last couple of years, they had Isaiah [Thomas] last year, they had Kyrie [Irving] this year, those guys provided real offensive punch in the games they won against the Warriors, but that switching defense gave Golden State a lot of problems.

Days after seeing Cleveland face elimination, debate on why Cavaliers coach Lue benched the Cavs third best player Kyle Korver most of Game 5 where Boston took a 96-83 win and went ahead, 3-2, in their best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference finals continued. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

"'Game seven' is the best two words in sports and for us to be on the road in another hostile environment where we've had no success up to this point, we should relish the opportunity". "It's just all about just win every game and it should put us in position to play for a championship".

LeBron James had 26 points and 10 rebounds and Kevin Love scored 14 for the Cavaliers, who are trying to reach the finals for the fourth consecutive season.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue altered his rotation to squeeze in extra rest for James at the end of the second quarter, which is unusual. He looked exhausted at times and couldn't will his team over the hump.

If the first five games of the Eastern Conference Finals are any indication, the Game 6 result isn't hard to predict. We've got to play well, and we understand that.

In addition to the turnovers, missed three-pointers and free throw woes, the Cavaliers were outhustled on the glass and outrebounded, 45-39, by the Celtics.

After an impressive regular season, the Duke product has taken his game to new heights in the playoffs, which makes this decision even more absurd. "He's just 20 years old and he has a long way to go, but he's just scratching the surface of how great he can really be".

Love did not return to the game.

Game 6 is in Cleveland on Friday night, with the decisive seventh game back in Boston on Sunday if necessary.

Celtics: Own a 37-0 record when leading a series 2-0.

After getting outrebounded by at least 10 rebounds in Games 3 and 4, the Celtics were able to outwork Cleveland on the boards in Game 5 with 45 rebounds as against the Cavs' 39. "I'm pretty sure a lot of guys are exhausted".
