Only one age 33 playoffs even to compare to James

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". Love, who suffered a concussion and missed a game in the 2016 Finals and had another one in March, might miss Sunday's game if he's placed into the concussion protocol. The Cavs also were just 5-of-17 shooting off James' passes, the lowest percentage for Cleveland in the past three postseasons. Tatum said the biggest thing that stuck with him was that Bryant noted how Tatum's foot sometimes points toward the midcourt stripe during drive attempts from the corner instead of at the basket to promote a stronger angle of attack.

But letting a first-year role player dictate how you deploy a legitimate game-breaker is pure craziness on the part of Lue.

"I've loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here", LeBron admitted."He's just a true professional". If you look back at the last couple of years, they had Isaiah [Thomas] last year, they had Kyrie [Irving] this year, those guys provided real offensive punch in the games they won against the Warriors, but that switching defense gave Golden State a lot of problems. He walked unsteadily to the bench with guard George Hill holding one of his arm.

Kevin Love was the only other Cavaliers player who scored in double figures in Game 5. His status for Game 7 is uncertain.

I have put my faith in players who have responded to that, and the squad comes before everything else", Deschamps said. His Marseille team-mate Florian Thauvin was included in the squad after a fantastic season for the Ligue 1 club.

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.

"I'm fine", he said. "I have a knot on the back of my head and he didn't return".

Morris' words speak to the delicate balancing act that exists between embracing their success in the moment while maintaining that hunger going forward in their quest for greatness. The Celtics were 10-0 in the playoffs at home in 1986.

After getting outrebounded by at least 10 rebounds in Games 3 and 4, the Celtics were able to outwork Cleveland on the boards in Game 5 with 45 rebounds as against the Cavs' 39. "Nobody else has what he has on his shoulders playing the game", he said.

By contrast, Sharapova needed two and a half hours to master 18th-ranked Barty 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 in their first round match. Williams had earlier opened her campaign by brushing aside Russia's Elena Vesnina 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 in their last-32 clash.

"[I was] still trying to make plays to help our team win", James said.

James, on many occasions this postseason, has shown that he possesses superpowers.

Kyle Korver was a standout for the Cleveland Cavaliers in their fourth National Basketball Association playoff game against the Boston Celtics, helping the team to a 111-102 victory to tie the series up 2-2.
