  • Cleveland Cavaliers: What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 5

But James and the Cavs live to fight for another day following their 109-99 Game 6 win which has us at a winner-take-all Game 7 in Boston on Sunday.

James was simply sensational, posting 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, a block and three steals in 46 dominant minutes. On Friday night there was a room ready for the Boston Celtics to accept the Eastern Conference title, and once again, the Cavs shut it down.

The Cavs are saying he has not been placed in the protocol - which would require he pass a series of extensive tests to be able to play in Game 7 - because his symptoms did not trigger immediate entry into the protocol program.

Trailing 97-90, Marcus Smart out-wrestled James for a loose ball that led to a transition scoring opportunity for Brown whose 3-pointer hit the back of the rim and bounced out.

James now averages 34.1 points per game in elimination games, which is more than anyone in National Basketball Association history who has played five such games.

As for the Suns, they have three great candidates for No. 1, all with ties to either Arizona or new Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov. The Sacramento Kings , the Atlanta Hawks, the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks will round out the top five picks.

The Rockets take a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in Oakland.

It was his seventh 40-point game in this year's playoffs. Now, the series goes to a Game 7, or as James calls it, "the best two words in sports", in Boston. Jaylen Brown scored 27 for Boston, who led by five at the end of a spirited first quarter but finally had no answer for James.

Kevin Love was not diagnosed with a concussion nor placed in the league's protocol in the first few hours after his nasty collision with Jayson Tatum, but all of that could still change.

Things turned for good in the second quarter, when the Celtics could only manage 18 points. Jeff Green scored 14 points (two off his 2018 playoff high) and Larry Nance Jr. added 10 points seven rebounds in Love's absence. Oh, and he played 46 minutes and only had three turnovers. Although the Celtics out-scored Cleveland by one point in the second half (56-55), the Cavaliers didn't allow them to get back in the game, especially down the stretch.
