Celtics fail to finish off Cavaliers in Game 6, 109-99

Shane Larkin out for Game 5 of Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Cleveland led by as many as 16 in the third quarter, but the advantage was down to seven with 2:47 to play when James unleased back-to-back three-pointers and converted a layup to push the Cavs lead back to 109-96.

Love has suffered at least two concussions prior concussions - one knocked him out of Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals and another kept him out of a regular-season game on March 28.

Wounded and tired, LeBron James put in a superhuman performance that was extraordinary even for his standards to carry the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory over the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

LeBron James had another unbelievable performance to help the Cavaliers force a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals. Jaylen Brown scored 27 for Boston, who led by five at the end of a spirited first quarter but finally had no answer for James. Seventeen of those points came in the second quarter, when he made his first three 3-pointers of the game and attempted his first six free throws. Oh, and he played 46 minutes and only had three turnovers.

Cleveland pulled ahead 38-33 in the second quarter courtesy of a 14-3 run, with a chance to add to it when James was fouled on a drive towards the basket with just over six minutes to play in the second quarter.

"We were on that one and our trainers were on that one in the huddle right after", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

Boston's struggles in the first half boiled down to them being too predictable offensively following a 3-pointer by Marcus Smart that increased the Celtics' lead to 30-24. Therefore, despite his incredible track record, LeBron will have his hands full in Game 7 on Sunday.

Boston had a 10-6 lead when Kevin Love and Jayson Tatum collided as Tatum tried to fight through a screen. Tatum was dazed, but Love crumpled to the court.

Moments later, Love was headed back to the locker room for additional concussion-related tests. He left the game with 6:58 left and did not return. Boston was a poor 11-of-20 at the line.
