"It's a do or die night, that is the mentality LeBron is trying to address to the locker room", our insider adds. "It's up to us to see if we can come back here for one more".

As Jayson Tatum chased down the loose ball, he had to know LeBron James was lurking nearby. But he's played nine games since, and gotten less and less rest as the playoffs have progressed.

The Celtics lead the series, 3-2, and can get to the NBA Finals with a win in Cleveland on Friday. James finished the game with 26 points on 50.0 percent shooting from the field, but the Cavs needed more than that to steal this road game.

Lue noticed early in Game 5 that James was dragging, but he's confident the 33-year-old, who was chosen All-NBA first team for a record 12th time, will be ready to save his season and prolong what could be his final games with the Cavs.

On that Miami team, James had a lot of help. Enjoy the historic James while you can. George Hill is 4-of-13 in Boston.

Cleveland guard JR Smith told ESPN's Dave McMenamin that as far as he knows, none of the Cavs has caught up with Irving during the series. "He didn't play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop". "I didn't mention fatigue, [the media] did". Instead of attempting to block Tatum's shot, James hit the brakes. If they manage to do so, Loves' health will certainly be something to keep an eye on leading up to Game 7. But the Celtics seem to have a better look, starting Aron Baynes for his size against Tristan Thompson and bringing in Marcus Morris to help wear down James late in the game.

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 wonderful 44-point, 10-rebound and 8-assist performance. He turned it over seven times when the Cavs won Game 4, 111-102.

With everything at stake for Cleveland, it is expected to be a fascinating contest and here's how you can watch the game live. "He wants the best out of Tristan and everyone else because the next two games will determine if he stays with Cleveland past this season", a source close to the National Basketball Association superstar tells EXCLUSIVELY.

James said that doesn't concern him. If we continue to play defense the way we've been playing, I do love our chances.

That's not the case this season.

But in making James work for his points, the Celtics have slowed the Cavaliers' normally potent offense. "It's killing him not to be out on the floor".

The Celtics are better: Let's face it, the better team is wearing green.
