Leading the best-of-seven series 3-2, Tatum and the Celtics will have have their first opportunity to close out the Cavaliers in Game 6 Friday night in Cleveland.
Stevens insisted he wouldn't deviate from the plan while declining to officially name his starting five prior to the Celtics morning shootout at their practice facility.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers looked to have all of the momentum after levelling the series with two wins at home, but they could never gain the ascendancy in Game 5 after the Celtics jumped out to an early double-digit lead.
Boston's Marcus Morris reiterated Lue's sentiments about James. Stevens said. "But he's ridiculous". With an already depleted roster that was missing Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, the Celtics needed their players to step up and make some noise in the playoffs. The Cavs are averaging 113.5 points per game at home this series with James making 62.5 percent of his shots. You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can, and I think one of the strengths of this team has been moving on. Thank God, we're going home next, and hopefully, we'll play better and force a Game 7. The Cavs' backs are officially against the wall as they face a do-or-die game Friday night in Cleveland. Conversely, the Celtics buried 13 of their 39 triple tries and made 21 of their 23 attempts from the charity stripe. It would have been more fitting had that ice been wrapped around his shoulders, because the load he's being forced to carry this entire postseason appears to be too much for one man to bear.
But James wasn't above issuing Tatum some lofty praise Wednesday ahead of Game 5 at TD Garden. Only Clyde Drexler (when he was 29) and Larry Bird (when he was 30) have put up as many points, assists, and rebounds in one postseason.
"I think considering what happened in game three and four with Tristan great on the glass and finishing around the basket, to start Baynes with a bigger body and going big with him and Horford, was pretty good", Lue said.
In game five, ESPN made it a point to keep showing the fatigue that LeBron was facing throughout the game.
Thompson had just one point and six rebounds for the game. "I'm pretty sure a lot of guys are exhausted during this stretch of the year". The Cavs also were just 5-of-17 shooting off James' passes, the lowest percentage for Cleveland in the past three postseasons.
