Boston Celtics Pride: The growing legend of Jayson Tatum

Boston's young guns star as Celtics blast Cavs for 3-2 series lead

Game six of the Eastern Conference finals is tonight as the Cleveland Cavaliers look to avoid elimination at home against the Boston Celtics.

Each contest has held true to the same basic formula of the home team dominating and winning comfortably. In 2012, he faced a Game 6 elimination in Boston and scored 45 points with 15 rebounds and five rebounds as Miami won.

With Baynes playing a more central role, the Celtics completely erased the advantage on the glass that Lue made reference to after the game. There is Michael Jordan, there is LeBron James, and there is no one else. His 31.1 points per game were good though he had a career low 19.4% shooting from three-point land despite having the second most attempts from there in his postseason career (3.5 attempts per game with 0.7 makes). He is running at 40.6 minutes per game with 33.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 8.8 assists.

"It's definitely a lot of fun", said Al Horford, who had 15 points, 12 rebounds and was a game-best, plus-22 in 35 minutes. Boston dug themselves a hole they weren't able to climb out of when they were outscored by 16 points in the opening quarter of Game 4.

Donovan Mitchell #45 of the Utah Jazz reacts to his basket in the second half during Game Four of Round Two of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Houston Rockets at Vivint Smart Home Arena on May 6, 2018 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Look for him to come off the bench earlier this time around.

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 fantastic 44-point, 10-rebound and 8-assist performance. James turned the ball over six times and couldn't finish easily at the rim like he has at other times this postseason. At the end of the day, I mean, s-- I'm exhausted.

LeBron James logged 39 minutes Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, looking visibly exhausted in the Boston Celtics' 96-83 win over Cleveland. J.R. Smith sank a floater to make it 63-50, and George Hill followed with a jumper of his own.

This beleaguered Celtics team, hammered by injuries to its best players, has pushed LeBron James to the brink.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was answering a question about Boston's defense on LeBron James during a teleconference when he tripped the security system at his home.

The Celtics haven't been almost as locked-in defensively on the road. He held Tristan Thompson to just one point and one assist on 31 possessions as the primary defender and Larry Nance Jr. managed just two points in 18 possessions against Baynes.

In Game 4 of the Cleveland series, Tatum moved ahead of Jerry West (275 points) on the rookie postseason-points list.

The crowd at TD Garden saluted Morris with an applause.
