James passes Jordan, Cavs back in Finals with 135-102 win

Vera Richards | 26 May, 2017, 07:14

James left the game with 6:46 remaining in the second quarter with four fouls.

Up next The Celtics lost Game 2 at home by 44 and the first two games of the series by a combined 57.

LeBron James faced a unique challenge in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Celtics on Tuesday.

"In the back of my mind, I thought, 'They can't tie up the series, '" he said. Kevin Love added 17 points and 17 rebounds for the Cavs, who are now 11-1 in the postseason.

LeBron James has always known Kyrie is capable of these types of herculean performances, so suffice it so say he wasn't surprised by what he saw from the gifted point guard.

Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue refused to point the finger of blame at LeBron James yesterday, a day after a woeful performance from the National Basketball Association star gave the Boston Celtics a postseason lifeline.

Celtics: Injured point guard Isaiah Thomas led his teammates in a pregame huddle before they took the court for warmups.

Irving scored 21 points in the quarter, cashing in nine of 10 field goals on a head-turning array of fearless drives to the basket and 3-pointers. In the last four minutes and 50 seconds of the third quarter, Cleveland turned a three-point deficit into a seven-point lead.

The Boston Celtics will be aiming to stave off elimination after falling to the Cleveland Cavaliers by 112-99 in Game 4 to fall behind by 3-1 in the series. This team (the Celtics) is, like I told you guys before, it's like we're preparing for a whole new team.

True to form, Trump's note was blunt and appeared a bit rushed. "(He forgot: "See you next summer")", wrote Raoul Wootliff . He also expressed firm support for Israel . 'We pledge never to be defenseless against that hatred again, ' he said.

The Cavs are 10-point favorites on the road, via OddsShark, and the over/under is 215. Smith wrote. Deron Williams played 18 minutes after sustaining a shoulder "stinger" in Game 3.

Lebron James recovered from his early foul troubles in the first half and scored 28 of his 34 points in the second.

"In the back of my mind, I was like, 'They can not tie up this series". "For whatever reason, all that changed in the second half". He shot 1-of-9 from the field and 1-of-5 from beyond the arc. They're 5-4 in the postseason so far.

0 - The decibel level inside of The Q when Irving fell to the floor late in the third quarter with an apparent ankle injury.

At that point, Uncle Drew took over the ballgame - scoring 19 of the Cavaliers' final 21 points in the period and putting Cleveland squarely in control of the contest. And on the offensive end, even in tandem, they could not counter him.

"Kyrie Irving and LeBron James would be the two answers", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said when asked about the difference from the first half to the second. We were really good defensively.

"I've twisted my ankle so many times that plays like that, you have two choices, either you can sit there and kind of wallow in the sorrow of you twisting your ankle or capture the moment", Irving said. But that's what great teams do. "And Boston is going to make it even harder". As well all know, a 10-point lead at halftime is nothing. And defensively, they're a lot better.

"He's a special kid", James said of Irving. The Cavs are better off getting that bad game of their chest when they still are in such a good position.
