The Boston Celtics took a 3-2 series lead on Wednesday night in the Eastern Conference Finals with a big game five win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. They held the Cavs, who seem to forget how to score in Boston, to just 83 points.
Following the game, LeBron admitted to being fatigued at times during the loss, “I had my moments.”
It is possible he is conserving energy for a strong game six and seven. It is also possible games three and four took too much out of him.
Tonight’s game five between the Houston Rockets and the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals will let us know if the Rockets are legit.
If they manage to win the game and take a series lead, you have to believe their odds to win the series will increase greatly. We’ll definitely be tuned in to see who takes game five.
