Lue: Cavs' Irving feeling 'good' after Game 4 ankle injury

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just one win away from the third consecutive NBA Finals after they defeated Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, at Quicken Loans Arena 112- 99. He is averaging 32.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.4 blocks per game in the playoffs, and Cleveland now holds a 3-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.

"I don't think I've ever had four fouls in a game before in the first half, so my rhythm is kind of broken and you've got to figure out ways you can still help the team, and my teammates said be aggressive, be you", James said.

Irving said Cleveland would benefit from having been put under pressure by Boston in Game 4.

"In the back of my mind, I was like, I'm saying to myself, "We can not - they can not tie up this series", he said.

Boston now trails this best-of-seven series 3-1 as it heads back to TD Garden for Thursday night's Game 5.

Louis Blues in the second round and when it played Game 1 against the Ducks. "And that's how we're going to approach the game". Losing two of their top three centers did not hurt the Predators in Game 5 but it could catch up with them in Game 6.

The defending National Basketball Association champions can wrap up their third straight conference title - and a "three-match" against the Warriors - with a win in game five on Thursday night in Boston. Kevin Love had a double-double with 17 points and 17 rebounds.

"The "Big Three" were terrific tonight", Lue said.

Vegas has good reason to be confident in LeBron James and Boston, though.

"It's never even been brought up", said Stevens. "We want to give our home crowd a better outing than we put out the past two games". That's what great teams do. But they deserve credit. Once the Cavs adjusted, they successfully ran them off the 3pt-line, giving multiple efforts and sustaining that through the entire possession, forcing contested shots.

Avery Bradley led the Celtics with his 19 points. Visitors continued in the same manner, and after the end of the first period, the Celtics were leading with the same advantage, not allowing the Cavs to get closer in those moments.

However, James still made several impressive plays and finished with a strong night of 34 points, six assists and five boards.

"Irving was incredible at the end of the third, and then obviously LeBron had all those baskets in the fourth". Crowder was ideal in the first quarter making 3 of 3 from 3-point range and 2 of 2 from the free-throw line for 11 points. Best he's been in a Cavs uniform, timely to say the least.

Cleveland swarmed the middle and dared Boston to win the game from beyond the arc.

If his second quarter was nice, Kyrie's third quarter was magical. They took the lead, 73-72, on two free throws by James at the 3:15 mark.

Personally, I'd like to see the Celtics lower Thomas from the rafters during a timeout in the first quarter a la Sting. The Celtics shocked everyone by grabbing a 10-point lead after two quarters in Cleveland. It was a franchise record for scoring in one quarter of a playoff game. But the main reason the Cavs produced such sweet net music was that Kyrie Irving was such a magnificent one-man band.
