LeBron James: Cavs star makes tiredness admission after Game 5 Celtics defeat

LeBron James: Cavs star makes tiredness admission after Game 5 Celtics defeat

"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". James swatted one of the rookie's offerings in the opening minute, as big a welcome-to-the-league moment as it gets. Boston's defense shut down Cleveland in Game 5, forcing 15 turnovers and limiting the Cavs to 41.9 percent shooting as a team (26.5 percent on 3-pointers).

The Cleveland Cavaliers face elimination against the Boston Celtics on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. Game 6 is in Cleveland, where the Cavs have won seven straight.

"We just gave him different looks", Smart said of the game plan versus James. "I think that's when I have the most fun, when things are on the line". "Guys are going to be physical, especially with me being the young guy".

The most interesting aspect of the Irving talk is that both teams would have a much easier time of winning with the deadly scoring ability of Irving on their side.

And in the most crucial game of the season, James, brilliant these entire playoffs, was average.

Tatum has said in the past that Kobe was his favorite player growing up, so it should come as no surprise that he loved the Kobe video.

"His composure, he plays above his age". While they managed to get back into Game 4 and knocked the lead down to single digits, they could never quite get over the hump and eventually lost.

The worldwide rights are huge win for Universal , but the more intriguing angle here is the team-up between MGM and Annapurna . While the film is as yet unnamed, the United Kingdom release date has already been set for October 25 next year.

James is exhausted - for good reason.

"It's not even something new at this point". "He's deep into the postseason in his first year". "But I think they all will tell you Baynes is one of the toughest we've all been around".

Boston looked like the superior team Wednesday night. Marcus Morris must be the lead role from that group. "Obviously, everybody knows the games are coming up pretty quick". "But he didn't play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop". At the end of the day, I mean, s-- I'm exhausted. Everybody else is exhausted. "When we play like that it fuels our offense as well".

Leading the team with 24 points, including some clutch shots down the stretch, Tatum has clearly broken out as the team's more reliable offensive weapon without Irving and Hayward on the court.

"I had my moments", James said when asked if he was exhausted. Boston fans chanted "Celts in six!" near the end of Wednesday's game.

"It's definitely frustrating just because we didn't bring the energy", Thompson said.

And not everybody has his game analyzed and scrutinized every time there's a greatest-of-all-time conversation made about National Basketball Association players. In the entirety of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, only nine such games have been achieved. "I've just been enjoying it, the level of play, the atmosphere. We couldn't make. And if you don't make, it's going to come back to bite you".
