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

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

Expect a more focused and energized LeBron to come out the gate with his team down 3-2 and in an elimination position.

But while certainly no one would suggest he doesn't have it within him to will his lads to a Sunday win back here, he has to look around him and know the aforementioned sword may catch enough of the Other Cavaliers to create a mortal wound. James is one of the most remarkable runs in the history of the National Basketball Association with his Finals streak, but this is the most vulnerable he has looked since the last time the Celtics beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. You've still got to play. "Heck of a challenge".

"And I think hopefully we can take a lot of what we've done here the last couple games - we've had better movement, better body movement, better ball movement, screens, passing, our defense has been a lot more aggressive". The Celtics are now back in the drivers' seat as they have home-court advantage and the series lead but they've lost six of their seven road games in these playoffs while the Cavaliers have won seven of their eight home games in these playoffs.

In those games, 2010 excepted, he has been absolutely brilliant.

"His recovery's gone great, and we're excited about that", Stevens said. James has beaten them all.

Losing Kevin Love early in the contest didn't hamper the Cavaliers' push as the Celtics struggled to contain James and stop the ball defensively. J.R. Smith, George Hill and Tristan Thompson had nearly no impact on the offensive end, missing 12 of 14 shots with four assists and one offensive rebound.

That will be hard to replicate completely in Cleveland. Thank God, we're going home next, and hopefully, we'll play better and force a Game 7.

Red Sox To Cut Ties With Hanley Ramirez
He hit.163 with three homers and 12 RBIs in May after starting the season with a.330 average, three homers and 17 RBIs. The news overshadowed Pedroia's activation from the DL for a weekend series at Fenway Park against the Braves.

Either way, this questionable decision-making and explanation by their head coach can't have Cleveland fans feeling very good heading into a must-win Game 6. He's guarding Jaylen Brown, one of the most athletic wings that we have in our league is 21-years-old. But they know how much Game 6 matters.

But letting a first-year role player dictate how you deploy a legitimate game-breaker is pure craziness on the part of Lue. "Every game matters, every possession matters, the details".

"I think out of those six (turnovers in Game 5), maybe three of them were just careless", James told reporters after the game. "It's given him an opportunity to make fail plays or make mistakes and be able to learn from them and still be able to be on the floor".

"I was able to go [to the Finals] four straight [times in Miami], and three straight since I've been back here", James added.

"I had my moments, but I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down whatever the case may be", he said. Al Horford posted a double-double with 15 points and 12 boards.

ESPN will broadcast the game nationally. At the end of the day, man, (expletive), I'm exhausted.
