Irving, Horford Receive Votes, But No Celtics Named To All-NBA Teams

NBA: Celtics push James, Cavs to brink with Game 5 win

The Celtics are too good at home: In order for the Cavaliers to reach the NBA Finals, they will now have to win Game 7 in Boston.

There was the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer against the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the opening round, a final touch to an awesome 44-point, 10-rebound and 8-assist performance. Tatum was dazed by the blow, but Love crumpled to the court and held the back of his head.

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". "I think everybody at this point is exhausted or worn down".

When the topic was broached a second time, with a reporter asking if he was "under the weather", James showed little interest in addressing the subject again.

"I didn't see him coming, it was bad", Tatum said.

Though a reporter asked how he felt, James did volunteer that he was exhausted.

To a Boston fan, the only Cav one wouldnt want to be in the Cleveland lineup outside of All-Stars James and Kevin Love, is Korver. When Tatum has been on the floor the Celtics have outscored postseason opponents by 76 points, which ranks No. 8 among players that have competed in at least 14 playoff games. "I'm going to be hurting tomorrow". As a team, the Cavaliers shot 41 percent from the field but they were sloppy with the ball, committing a total of 15 turnovers and they were outscored at the free-throw line by 21-12.

Was Korver sore from his face-first dive late Monday night, something he alluded to in the locker room after the game? Kyle Korver inexplicably played just 19 minutes despite arguably being the team's second-best player in the playoffs.

James closed his night with seven consecutive points. He functioned as a dutiful screen setter and chipped in 6 points and 2 offensive rebounds for good measure. The Cavaliers will have to replicate their efforts from Games 3 and 4 to extend their season. Yet, again, the postgame narrative was how he looked exhausted.

James finds himself and the Cleveland Cavaliers down three games to two in a best of seven series against the Boston Celtics. With Love out, the silver lining was the Cavs could switch everything on defense, a strategy they rode the rest of the game.

Tatum was effective but relatively workmanlike in the first four games of the East finals, scoring no more than 18 points in any of the contests.
