  • How the Cavs won the chess match in Games 3 and 4

LeBron James's teams have faced an elimination game 21 times in the playoffs.

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.

The Cleveland Cavaliers entered Wednesday's Game 5 with two straight wins, momentum and the hopes of putting the team in position to clinch the series at home on Friday. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

"You can't live or die with every loss or win", Stevens said. Seems pretty obvious to me, but alas, I am just another person named Ty and not an National Basketball Association coach.

Hawaii's Erupting Kilauea Volcano Is Now Spouting Blue Flames of Burning Methane
There has been continuous low-level ash emission from Kilauea's summit with larger explosions every few hours, said U.S. Earlier this month officials removed a flammable gas called pentane from the plant to reduce the chance of explosions.

Lue was more candid than was his usual custom after the game, opining that his superstar and meal ticket, L. James, "looked a little exhausted to me, yes".

- After struggling in Games 3-5, Terry Rozier dazzled for Boston. "I was still trying to make plays, put our team in position to win".

It was his seventh 40-point performance of the 2018 playoffs, tying Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan (1989) for second-most 40-point games in a single post-season behind the eight of Jerry West in 1965.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue altered his rotation to squeeze in extra rest for James at the end of the second quarter, which is unusual.

European Union moves to shield European Union firms from U.S. sanctions against Iran
The European Commissioner for Energy, Miguel Arias Canete, is expected on Friday in Tehran, where he will meet for three days with Iranian officials.

The 33-year-old has said several times since coming home in 2014 that he wants to retire with the Cavaliers, but fans are uneasy because he can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and test free agency. Oh, and he played 46 minutes and only had three turnovers. The game showed why no one should be holding out hope for a Cavs comeback. Granted, I know the offensive totals of Ojeleye would not be why it's Korver on Ojeleye - at least from the Cleveland point of view. But we got [LeBron James] out with two-and-a-half minutes, and at the start of the fourth he wasn't ready to go.

After the game, a reporter asked James about how he felt, which he seemed happy to address.

Love did not return to the game. Four of the five games have been decided by double digits, and the Celtics barely kept Game 4 within single digits when they lost 111-102.

Meanwhile, Boston is now 10-0 at home during this postseason run. That put a smile on James' face, and the two had a amusing little exchange. "And I think that the deal is you can't ride the emotional roller coaster".
