Tyronn Lue 3 takeaways from Game 5 vs. Boston Celtics

The Celtics are one win away from going to the NBA Finals, as they lead the Cavs 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

However, OddsShark's opening line has James and the Cleveland Cavaliers as two-point underdogs to the Boston Celtics for Game 7 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals.

The Celtics' All-Star forward Al Horford was also unusually quiet with just six points while guard Terry Rozier had 28 and Jaylen Brown 27 points.

James turned the ball over only three times when the Cavaliers rolled the Celtics, 116-86, in Game 3. "It's just all about just win every game and it should put us in position to play for a championship".

"Just a lot of heart, a lot of grit, being resilient", James said.

At home, Boston has been a completely different team out hustling Cleveland, Philadelphia and Milwaukee on both ends. He didn't play at all in the first quarter, as the offense languished and shots repeatedly clanged off the rim. There is a greater than even chance the Cavs do not advance to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2014, and James does not advance to the last round for the first time since 2010.

Looking at the betting trends, the Celtics are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team above.600, 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games overall.

In seven elimination games with the Cavs, he's scored 40 or more points four times.

If Boston looks to clinch the series, they'll have to continue to get production from the core that has got them to this point. But Tatum has taken his performance to another level in his first National Basketball Association postseason, averaging 18.4 points in 17 games. If this group, with Love or without him, has anything left Sunday, buckle up. "It sounds insane because of the talent of the Warriors, but just the way their switching defense has given Golden State problems over the years, that gives the Celtics confidence".

Morris was asked after the game about what he said to Nance. "I felt some pain throughout my entire right side of my ankle into my leg".

"I didn't get a good look at it either or I would've been able to avoid it", James said. "Guys are going to be physical, especially with me being the young guy".

Cavaliers: Improved to 6-2 in elimination game since 2015. In the three games in Cleveland, Hill averaged 15.3 points on 53 percent shooting.

- Finally, if Tatum scores 41 more points, he'll set the new record for most postseason points by a rookie.
