National Basketball Association playoffs wrap: May 25

Shane Larkin out for Game 5 of Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The Celtics, however, have withstood a stellar James performance and escaped with a victory earlier in this series.

In seven elimination games with the Cavs, he's scored 40 or more points four times.

The Cavaliers will have to do it again Friday night to force a Game 7 in Boston and keep them in the hunt for a trip to the NBA Finals.

Tatum averaged 13.9 points and 5 rebounds during his 80 regular season games and led National Basketball Association rookies in three-point shooting percentage. James finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists but committed six turnovers and looked exhausted at times. "We have to control what we can control, and that's play as well as we can".

The Boston Celtics, reinvigorated by a return home, beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 on Wednesday (May 23) to move within one win of reaching the NBA Finals. The Truth says that while Tatum has looked unflappable in postseason play, he thought the pressure of the playoffs became too overwhelming for someone like Ben Simmons.

Celtics forward Marcus Morris, one of James' primary harassers, waited a full five seconds while a slight smile creased his face before admitting he agreed. You've still got to play. The same thing happened I think Game 1 or 2; I cant remember, ” Lue added.

The Cavs and James didn't have much of a choice; they needed it to survive, but it's questionable if there will be lingering effects on Sunday.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - LeBron James made more history Thursday afternoon, as he was named to the All-NBA First Team for a record 12th time.

James turned the ball over only three times when the Cavaliers rolled the Celtics, 116-86, in Game 3. The Cavaliers' role players shoot better at home, and Boston's offense gets a big spike from its home crowd.

"[Brad Stevens has] been putting [Semi] Ojeleye in, so that's been kind of Kyle's matchup when he comes in the game", Lue said.

"Offensively, we just couldn't make shots", said Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue. He stayed down momentarily before leaving the game for good for further evaluation.

That streak of seven straight appearances in the NBA Finals, which would come to an end if he doesn't win these next two games?

Irving did not travel to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4. I feel like we're just cut from a different cloth because we've been around for so long.

LeBron James writhes in pain on the floor after suffering a suspected knee injury in the final quarter of the game.
