Boston bound: LeBron pushes Cavaliers to Game 7

Only one player in National Basketball Association history has done anything approaching what LeBron James is doing at age 33 in the playoffs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers face elimination against the Boston Celtics on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Of the late three-pointers that doomed his team, Stevens said there was little more the Celtics could have done. Offensively, they're averaging eight more points per game at home than the three games they played in Cleveland (103.6 to 95.6). It feels like things might be lining up for the Celtics in this game, but absolutely nobody will be thinking about that.

But if Friday was in fact James' final home game in Cleveland, he left Northeast Ohio with a performance for the ages to remember him by. He can be a free agent at season's end and will consider coming back to the Cavs as well as a host of other options. Let's also remember Jordan only played in one more postseason after his age 33 one and try to forget the years he wore a Washington jersey as a shell of his former self. It's a 10-point advantage for Cleveland with under seven minutes to go. Best player in the game.

"I thought Baynes gave them a physicality, protected the lane and protected the paint", Tyronn Lue said.

The Celtics have two chances to go to their first Finals since 2010 - the previous year a non-LeBron team represented the East.

Much of the credit goes to Boston's No.1 ranked defense, but Cleveland deserves a large share of the blame.

The Cleveland Cavaliers could not win a pivotal road Game 5 against the Boston Celtics, as they lost 96-83 Wednesday night.

Nance finished the game with two points, six rebounds, four blocks and two assists. Both Lue and James acknowledged that was the case. The Cavs have been desperate for his production throughout the series and would need other role players to step up in a big way if the All-Star forward is unable to play. 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. They outrebounded the Cavaliers, 45-39, and were more careful with the ball.

LeBron James was in a good mood after turning in a world-class performance in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

"You can't live or die with every loss or win", Stevens said.

"I didn't know who got me but after the game Larry asked me if I was okay so I'm guessing he was the culprit".

Terry Rozier scored 28 points to lead the Celtics, who are trying to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.
