Only one age 33 playoffs even to compare to James

King Back at home Celtics can dominate again — and they’d better

King Back at home Celtics can dominate again — and they’d better

LeBron James knew better than to give the perception that he was making excuses when asked about his health after Wednesday's Game 5 loss.

"I think everybody at this point is exhausted or worn down or whatever the case may be", James said. Yes, the inactive Perkins made an impact in tonight's game and he didn't even play. His always stellar free throw percentage was at 83% though he only got to the line 7.8 times per game (lowest of any championship run for him). We have seen James defend Boston's perimeter 1-2 punch of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, a pair of young, athletic wing players who have been aggressive going at James and his teammates.

"Not at all", he said. Interestingly, that was also the last time James was down 2-0 in a series in the East, which the Celtics closed out in six. Boston quickly closed the gap in the second half and had an 11-point lead of their own within a minute of the fourth quarter.

And if the rumors are true, this could be James' final game with the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Timing can be a odd thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010. "The playoffs bring the best out of people and out of players, and hopefully we keep it going".

Baynes, a 208cm tall Queenslander, started every game of the Celtics' semi-final playoff series win over the Philadelphia 76ers earlier this month, but against the smaller, more mobile Cavaliers Boston coach Brad Stevens relegated Baynes to a bench role and promoted forward Marcus Morris. You still gotta play. "He's deep into the postseason in his first year".

Prospects For US-China Trade Deal Ease Tensions
The stock markets reacted further to the president's latest comments, with the Dow Jones dropping 120 points in early trading. So far, uncertainty has been about the only certainty in the ongoing trade talks between the Trump administration and China.

That streak of James reaching his eighth straight National Basketball Association finals is now in serious jeopardy after Cleveland's 96-83 loss to the Boston Celtics.

The Cavs got off to a rocky start, with five first-quarter turnovers almost matching their seven field goals.

"No question in my mind that he'll bounce back", Lue said. If anyone attempts to compare what James is doing in the 2018 NBA Playoffs to any other player, then the appropriate response is laughter. Nance got up and pushed Morris in the back after the taunt.

The NBA released their All-NBA Teams on Thursday, and Celtics fans probably won't be too pleased with the voting.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue altered his rotation to squeeze in extra rest for James at the end of the second quarter, which is unusual. "So now we've got to go home, win game six and come back here for game seven".
