Open thread game six: Cleveland Cavaliers versus Boston Celtics

Open thread game six: Cleveland Cavaliers versus Boston Celtics

Reflecting on Wednesday night's 96-83 Game 5 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tatum showed just way National Basketball Association legends like Paul Pierce and Kobe Bryant have been raving about him. He finished with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, that included two unbelievable dagger 3-pointers in the final minutes. Tatum also grabbed at his head, but remained in the game. That was really a special moment for me. "I think the other three were attack turnovers, and I'm okay with that".

When the topic was broached a second time, with a reporter asking if he was "under the weather", James showed little interest in addressing the subject again.

"We've got to be focused, composed and play with a lot of poise and we'll be fine", he said, clearly up for the challenge.

FDA Warns Parents To Stop Giving Unsafe Teething Medicines to Children
Benzocaine is used in products to treat not just teething, but also sore throats, canker sores , and other oral irritations. FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a release there are "no demonstrated benefits" from the benzocaine products.


Though a reporter asked how he felt, James did volunteer that he was exhausted. There is Michael Jordan, there is LeBron James, and there is no one else. Now approaching his 99th and 100th games of the season, does this look like a guy ready to carry his team to beat a superior roster twice in the next four days? "He's going to continue to get better".

At home, Boston has been a completely different team out hustling Cleveland, Philadelphia and Milwaukee on both ends. His always stellar free throw percentage was at 83% though he only got to the line 7.8 times per game (lowest of any championship run for him). James and Kevin Love were the only players to score in double figures. He's scored 40 or more seven times this postseason. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games against a team with a road record above.600 and 12-39-2 ATS in their last 53 games following a loss of more than 10 points.

The Celtics improved to 10-0 at home this post-season, and Tatum said there's no reason they can't wrap up the series on Friday, even though so far the home team has won every game in the series.

"Sometimes I just think, 'how did he make that shot or how did he make that move or when did he see that pass?'" Hill said.

He was especially aggressive in the first half, when he piled up 25 points to help Cleveland build a double-digit lead.

The Cavs got off to a rocky start, with five first-quarter turnovers almost matching their seven field goals.

It said any bid would be all-cash and at a premium to the value of the current $52.4bn all-share offer from Disney . Comcast won approval on Monday from the United Kingdom government to move ahead with the offer for Sky.


The Cavs and James didn't have much of a choice; they needed it to survive, but it's questionable if there will be lingering effects on Sunday.
