LeBron James doesn't offer praise just to be nice to another player on another team.
LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers looks on in the second half of Game Five of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on May 23, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.
"We have one game to be able to compete for a championship, and what more could you ask for?" He played the game's first 35 minutes before resting, expending enormous energy to keep the Cavs alive.
The Celtics thus wasted a 28-point, six-trey performance from Terry Rozier and another 27 from Jaylen Brown. "I felt so slow on that play". The same Ojeleye that's shot just 30.3 from the field in the playoffs, which is the second-worst, behind Guerschon Yabusele's 11.1 (garbage time) field goal percentage. LeBron James is averaging 33.9 points and 8.8 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 13.9 points and 10 rebounds.
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he had not spoken to Irving since the series started. "I think the unfortunate events of the injuries that they've had have allowed him to, I believe, get better faster than I believe they expected here". "We didn't play well".

Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with Russian lawyer
The White House has said the president was involved in drafting an initial statement after news of the meeting broke past year . A big question has been whether that was his father, and whether Trump Jr . might have informed his father about the meeting.
Discussion after Game 5 was centered squarely on how LeBron James ran out of gas and how rookie Jason Tatum ran circles around the aging superstar.
That being said, this Cavaliers team is much less convincing than any of those Heat teams. The rest of the #Cavs need to take notes. Baynes played 29 minutes in that contest - the most he's had in the series - and his presence made a noticeable impact on Cavs' big man Tristan Thompson, who only came away with six rebounds after pulling down 12 in the previous outing. "He's just 20 years old and he has a long way to go, but he's just scratching the surface of how great he can really be".
The Cavs announced an hour later at halftime that Love wouldn't return. The Cavaliers will have to replicate their efforts from Games 3 and 4 to extend their season. "I think that the way in which he's done that and all of the years now that he's made The Finals and gone deep into the playoffs, it's unbelievable".
Stevens added that going against James for multiple games gives you an appreciation of James' greatness.
