Boston bound: LeBron pushes Cavs to Game 7 vs. Celtics

James finds himself and the Cleveland Cavaliers down three games to two in a best of seven series against the Boston Celtics.

Game 6 details featuring the Boston Celtics vs Cleveland Cavaliers, including the start time and live stream, are ahead.

And midway through the final quarter James appeared to suffer a serious right leg injury when team-mate Larry Nance Jr fell on him.

"I think that we misuse the word "development" sometimes", Stevens said of Tatum. According to Game Score, a metric created by John Hollinger to give a rough measure of a player's productivity for a single game, James (15.3 game score) and Love (10.7) each had their second-worst performance in this series, which further illustrates that, without help from at least one other member of the supporting cast, the Cavaliers look doomed. The last team to represent the East in the Finals that didn't have James - the Celtics in 2010. "I was able to play 46 minutes and I got my couple of minutes I guess". Led by LeBron James' 21 first-quarter points, Cleveland jumped out to an early lead and led by as many as 11 points. They scored five points on their first three possessions of the period, but the shots weren't good and the ball didn't get into the paint until possession No. 7.

Reserves Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart scored 10 points each.

Starting guard J.R. Smith made only three of 22 shots in the three games in Boston for a total of six points.

"We have another opportunity on Friday to be as good as we can be, play Cavs basketball on our home floor and force a Game 7", James said. He was taken to the Cavs' locker room shortly after. "I'm for sure going to find a Chipotle in Boston, I'll tell you that". You can't go out and try to look pretty.

"Hopefully I'll get myself in a position to play great once again on Sunday". He is still being evaluated for a concussion.

- With 20 more points, Tatum goes by Elgin Baylor (331 points) and moves into No. 3 all-time.

George Hill added 20 points, and Jeff Green 14 for the Cavs. You expect games like this on elimination nights.

Hill, who came over in a deadline trade, has been awed by what James has done in this postseason.

If you asked the Celtics at the beginning of the postseason if they'd like to have one game on the floor for a trip to The Finals, they'd surely have accepted it.

James has also had some bitter memories in Boston.

James will need to add another vintage game to his illustrious résumé Sunday if he plans to continue dragging the Cavaliers' collection of unreliable role players to what would be James' eighth consecutive NBA Finals appearance and the Cavs' fourth.

Lue was more candid than was his usual custom after the game, opining that his superstar and meal ticket, L. James, "looked a little exhausted to me, yes".
