Celtics vs. Cavaliers - Game Recap

Celtics vs. Cavaliers - Game Recap

Days after seeing Cleveland face elimination, debate on why Cavaliers coach Lue benched the Cavs third best player Kyle Korver most of Game 5 where Boston took a 96-83 win and went ahead, 3-2, in their best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference finals continued.

It's unclear which voter made the decision but the league will release this information in due course and there's no doubt that Celtics fans are waiting to call out that individual. Jeff Green was fantastic in Love's place with 14 points, and Larry Nance Jr. added 10 points and seven rebounds. Rozier had eight points, six assists, six rebounds and three steals for the Celtics.

"I just enjoy playing in the big moments, in the big games".

"We're right there, man, right there", Boston's Marcus Morris told NBC Sports Boston last night.

"This is the first series I've been a part of where both teams play completely different on the road", Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson said.

But Morris made a long 3-pointer to stop the scoring drought, and soon hit another to cap an 8-2 run that made it a double-digit lead.

Gun rights, reform groups to meet Texas governor after school shooting
A church group will host a gathering at a football stadium to honor those killed and injured during a Texas high school shooting. He said last week that he wants to find ways to keep guns away from those who pose an "immediate danger to others".

The real possibility that James was playing his last game in Cleveland hung over the game - and this city - in the hours leading to tip-off. Cleveland posted an offensive rebound rate of just 9.1% for the game, an extremely far cry from the 20.4% mark they'd posted throughout the series coming into the contest.

In 2012, he had 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in Game 6 for Miami, which went on to win Game 7 and the National Basketball Association title.

You didn't get Kyle Korver into the game because the Celtics didn't play his matchup? Tatum was dazed by the blow, but Love crumpled to the court and held the back of his head.

When it comes to James, there is no middle ground: You either hate LeBron James or you love him.

"We've got to be focused, composed and play with a lot of poise and we'll be fine", he said, clearly up for the challenge. "I think we're in the business of enhancement. I know we'll shoot the ball better and play better offensively at home".

But not everybody trains with former Navy SEALs to give him the most physically imposing physique in the game. The Celtics prefer to defend the Cavaliers one-on-one, and since Cleveland has no other one-on-one scorer besides James - which is why they miss Kyrie Irving more than the Celtics do - the offense becomes too one-dimensional.
