The home/road splits have been stark for Boston the entire postseason.
The home team has won every game in the Eastern Conference finals. James is now averaging 33.9 points per game in 22 career shots at elimination.
But letting a first-year role player dictate how you deploy a legitimate game-breaker is pure craziness on the part of Lue.
LeBron James does more of the same as the Cleveland Cavaliers live another day with a big homecourt win against the Boston Celtics. First, they'll have to win a road playoff game which they have done only once in seven tries thus far.
Love dropped to the ground forcing George Hill to commit a foul to stop play so Love could leave the game.
Perhaps a season of carrying a flawed Cavaliers team is finally exacting a toll. James has beaten them all. Enjoy the historic James while you can. "We couldn't make. And if you don't make, it's going to come back to bite you".
But before he picks home or Philadelphia or Los Angeles or anywhere else, he's got at least one more game in Cleveland.
"I can't say that on camera". "I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down or whatever the case may be".
United States stocks jump as trade war fears subside
The United States and China are said to be working on a deal that would keep ZTE from going out of business. Trump later ordered Lighthizer to seek up to an additional $100 billion in Chinese products to tax.
But not everybody trains with former Navy SEALs to give him the most physically imposing physique in the game.
James, on many occasions this postseason, has shown that he possesses superpowers. James scored 26 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, but he didn't dominate the game as he normally does.
This was a sloppy game by both teams. 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 so James let us see him sweat.
On Friday, James will take the floor with his future hanging in the air.
"I didn't think we played well tonight at all", said Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue. "I'm going to be hurting tomorrow". "I've just been enjoying it, the level of play, the atmosphere".
And this squad is without the second-best player from Cleveland's previous championship runs, Kyrie Irving.
But the presser got better when a reporter asked an agitated and seemingly overwhelmed Lue if he knows what he's getting from his veteran team on a nightly basis or if it's akin to throwing a dart at the board.
Those media and social media haters are preparing to push up their delivery date of hate.
