Well, we could be watching LeBron James’ last game as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers if the team isn’t able to win Game 6 at home against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The home/road splits for the Celtics are well known at this point, but that doesn’t guarantee a win for Cleveland. They made the Cavs work hard in Game 4, and it’s fair to assume they’re going to try to throw a haymaker in the first quarter to see if the Cavs will quit.
As always, this game will come down to LeBron James. He looked tired and a step or two behind the action for much of Game 5. He needs to be the ultimate chess player on offense while setting the tone defensively to try to keep the Celtics at bay. They’ve done a better job on James, but the Cavaliers also went away with what worked for them in Games 3 and 4.
All that is to say — I have no idea who’s going to win this game.
