Celtics brace for 'dogfight' vs Cavs in Game 7 at home

27 May 2018

The Celtics won the pivotal game five 96-83 in Boston on Wednesday to take a 3-2 lead over the Cavaliers in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals.

The Boston Celtics, thwarted in their first attempt to close out the Cleveland Cavaliers in Friday's Game 6, head back to Boston confident in their chances in a winner-take-all Game 7 but are expecting a battle at TD Garden.

Moments before the Cavs sent a news release updating Love's status, coach Tyronn Lue held a confusing teleconference during which he said the 29-year-old was still being evaluated and there was a possibility he could play.

Stevens credited the transition defense - the Celtics outscored the Cavaliers, 18-2, on fast-break points in Game 5 - for the victory, adding on the conference call that it is more important to him than orchestrating any particular one-on-one defensive matchup against James in the halfcourt. Following the second incident, several players challenged Love in a team meeting that came shortly after he had left that game and missed a subsequent practice. The Celtics get Game 7 at home. "I look forward to seeing us respond on Friday night".

As for the trailer, it's incredibly unlikely that your actual gameplay experience will even remotely resemble what was shown. A debut trailer gives players their first look at the game, which is set during World War II and its "unseen locations".

The Celtics know how much more comfortable they would be closing out at home, but James in a game seven is a different monster.

Now all LeBron has to do is do it again.

He admitted to fatigue afterward, and then played all but two minutes in Game 6 despite a sore knee from a collision with Nance. "Best player in the game". We got one of those with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line Sunday night. "You've got to be able to handle a punch or two", he said.

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving is "in a great place" according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.

If they want to kneel, they have to do so in the locker room, the National Football League has decreed. The players have been protesting over perceived police brutality since 2016.

In his first season with the Celtics, Irving averaged a team-leading 24.4 points per game, and shot a career-best 49.1 percent from the field, along with a carer-high 56.8 effective field goal percentage. They played for Kevin. You got to be able to get down and get dirty.

On a night Tatum slipped past Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain to become only the sixth rookie in National Basketball Association history to score 300 postseason points, he put his team in position to end James' reign of East supremacy.

"We know it's challenging, they turn it on on their home floor". I just felt someone fall into my leg and my leg kind of went in. And with the injury bug hitting the Western Conference finalists - Chris Paul was the latest ruled out for a game - the East champion might not be as big an underdog as expected.
