After the Boston Celtics dropped Games 3 and 4 of the Eastern Conference finals in Cleveland, Coach Brad Stevens made key defensive adjustments at home, fueling a 96-83 win over Cleveland at home on Wednesday night.

LeBron James sat closest to the locker room door in the aftermath of another bad road loss, mostly silent with both knees wrapped in ice. Boston, on the other hand, finished as the two seed in the Eastern Conference without their two best players. "I think everybody at this point is exhausted or worn down".

The Cavaliers' role players really failed to show up in Game 5 so it's no surprise that the Celtics were able to win so easily in the end.

In Game 1, Boston doubled-up Cleveland in the first quarter 36-18 and never looked back.

"Not at all", he said.

So, Lue didnt play his third-best player this series in a pivotal Game 5 because the Celtics didnt play their eighth-best player. "We had moments. We had an opportunity, but we didn't make enough plays". "When we're out there we can definitely feel the energy the Garden is giving us, and we use it to do what we've got to do". "And until we're dead and in our grave, until Golden State's dead in their grave, it's not over".

Game 2 was the most unique game of the series. Boston quickly closed the gap in the second half and had an 11-point lead of their own within a minute of the fourth quarter. The Cavs also were just 5-of-17 shooting off James' passes, the lowest percentage for Cleveland in the past three postseasons. He's the NBA's all-time leading scorer when his team is facing elimination.

On Thursday, Owens told fans that he'd have a big announcement on Friday about the speculation on his return to the NFL. Interestingly, it seems Story Mode, which was introduced in Madden 18, has already been dropped.

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.

I'm fine. And I didn't mention the fatigue either.

"It's my first year". "I'm going to be hurting tomorrow. It doesn't get any better than that", he said. He has gone to the last seven, including the past three with the Cavs.

He took his talents to South Beach a couple of months later and embarked on the run that brought him his first two National Basketball Association titles.

Morris appeared to say something to Nance before turning away, and Nance rose from the floor and shoved him from behind.

The four-time MVP victor had a great outing on the court for the Cavaliers in their win, but he himself was impressed by the production of his teammate, Kyle Korver, who finished with 14 points and had a solid defensive performance on Celtics guard Jaylen Brown.
