Tyronn Lue: LeBron James Will Be Great in Game 6

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James roars in delight after nailing a three-pointer against the Boston Celtics

LeBron James doesn't offer praise just to be nice to another player on another team.

"'Game seven' is the best two words in sports and for us to be on the road in another hostile environment where we've had no success up to this point, we should relish the opportunity".

The Celtics are a flawless 10-0 at home this postseason. "Luckily, I was able to finish the game". Smith has 20 points in two home games and six points in three games in Boston.

On one possession, early in the third quarter, James finished a fast break with a layup, only to rush back on defense and deliver one of his signature chasedown blocks against Celtics guard Terry Rozier. It's just something that you really can't explain what he's doing night in, night out. 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). We had to play 'Bron as many minutes as he had to.

LeBron can add more to his greatness on Monday in Game 7 of the series in Boston.

Entering Friday, James already possessed the highest scoring average in games with his team facing elimination in National Basketball Association history and had recorded either a triple-double or 40-point effort in each of his previous six - now seven - outings with his season on the line.

The real possibility that James was playing his last game in Cleveland hung over the game - and this city - in the hours leading to tip-off.

What Green will need to do in Game 7 will be just what he did throughout Game 6, drive to the hoop and get to the foul line. LeBron backed away from the play and fell to the floor holding his right knee.

As Love stayed down, the Cavs huddled around him.

"We were short on timeouts and I was about to take one", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of incident.

The Cavs said Love is being evaluated for a concussion and being kept out as a precaution.

After Game 5, much of the discussion centered around how James appeared lethargic with many openly wondering if the toll of 15 seasons (most extended by deep playoff runs) was showing on him. Oh...

James readily dismissed the notion though in his turn to talk.

And, of course, he left in 2010.

James has said he'll sit down with his family after the season ends to plot his next move, and he's already being courted in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and NY who can only dream about adding him to their rosters.

For now, he's only going to Boston.

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

"I tried to get him to bang his other knee so then we could have 24", Lue said.

Morris was asked after the game about what he said to Nance. You would be too if you scored 46 points in an elimination game and forced a brief moratorium on Michael Jordan comparisons.

James also passed Karl Malone for sixth place all-time in playoff rebounds.

The victor will meet Houston Rockets or Golden State Warriors. "And until we're dead and in our grave, until Golden State's dead in their grave, it's not over". I appreciate that team because of that. He's got 12 points in 18 minutes.

"I expect it to be as loud as I've ever [heard] it", said Brown.
