Only one age 33 playoffs even to compare to James

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).

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue altered his rotation to squeeze in extra rest for James at the end of the second quarter, which is unusual. "Gave it his all. It's win or go...go to Cancun". "He delivered. He carried us home as usual".

The Cleveland Cavaliers will advance to their fourth straight NBA Finals with a victory here.

It's now or never for the Cavaliers as they face an elimination game tonight at home against Boston.

"I think his composure is impressive, he plays above his age", James told National Basketball Association reporters before Game 5.

"At one point we had two opportunities to cut it to single digits and missed some really good looks, two three-pointers".

Smart said the Celtics wanted to more aggressive at home.

Arteta is reportedly fully aware of Arsenal's interest, and will accept the opportunity if the club offers it to him. Arteta who joined Arsenal from Everton spent five years in the Emirates Stadium before retiring in 2016.

Timing can be a odd thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010. George Hill looked spry racking up 20 points, and Jeff Green showed up in Love's absence in what was a strong game for Cleveland's bench.

Terry Rozier had 28 points and Jayken Brown added 27 for Boston.

"Just a lot of heart, a lot of grit", James told ESPN after the game.

Unfortunately for the Cavs, the answer is yes.

Reserves Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart each scored 13. I think Jayson was ready to deal with everything that comes with this because of who he is and his family and all his coaches before, because he's a very emotionally steady, smart player that was going to perform at a high level at his age. Love ended up tumbling to the floor on the play, and he stayed down holding his head until play was stopped. All game long, the Cavaliers toggled between the suburbs and exurbs of contention, before moving decisively to distant rural reaches in the last six minutes. James and Kevin Love were the only players to score in double figures.

Asked about the energy level of James, who finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 6 turnovers, Lue responded, "He looked a little exhausted to me". James turned the ball over six times and couldn't finish easily at the rim like he has at other times this postseason.

But things were different Friday night in Game 6 at Quicken Loans Arena.
