"Our team is built on me being out on the floor to make plays not only for myself but for others". He also scored 45 in a Game 7 loss for Cleveland in 2008, and now has a chance to boost his stunning resume further if he can get the Cavs to a fourth consecutive Finals. James scored 26 points on 11-for-22 shooting with 10 rebounds and five assists.

Down three games to two, with a must-win Game 6 set for 8:30 p.m.

"Fatigue won't be a problem", the Cavaliers' coach said May 24 during a conference call. "It was something that he noticed - and I mean, it made a lot of sense when he pointed it out".

"Greatness", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said simply of James.

I keep saying this, but it's still hard to believe Tatum turned 20 years only 82 days ago.

Since then James has gone 5-0 in Game 7s.

"Rudy Tomjanovich, never underestimate the heart of a champion", Lue said.

If the Eastern Conference Finals goes seven games, Tatum could have the record at the end of the series. The Celtics are now a flawless 10-0 at home and just 1-6 on the road.

Hill capped his best offensive showing in these playoffs - a 20-point outing in a 109-99 season-extending victory - with the most colorful quote of Friday night. It's just the way we've been playing, and we've been succeeding with it. And it was coach Lue, too, who opened the conversation regarding the MVP candidates health condition during the post-game interview with the press, saying: “He looked a little exhausted to me.” Lue said of James.

"At the same time, we still gotta come out aggressive and play Celtics basketball", Rozier said, via NBA TV.


I just felt someone fall into my leg and my leg kind of went in.

The Celtics couldn't recapture their first-quarter rhythm, they didn't get Horford in the post once in the second quarter, and a 20-4 Cleveland run was ultimately the difference in the game. The Cavs were forced into 15 turnovers.

It might be too simple to link James' fatigue with his turnovers. Numerous turnovers were sloppy, careless passes. "I think he's just starting to see his potential". The last team to represent the East in the Finals that didn't have James - the Celtics in 2010. He turned it over seven times when the Cavs won Game 4, 111-102. He has already made a few terrific cuts off the ball.

"I just got it like that", James said.

"We know it is a challenge on their home floor", James said.

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. This was the seventh 40-point game for James this postseason.

Expand that search back to age 32 seasons and Jordan's age 32 shows up with James' 2017 playoff run to add to the list.

"Does that ever come into our minds?" he told reporters in Cleveland.
