Celtics Push Cavs to the Brink. Last LeBron James Game at the Q? »

May 12, 2010 at 4:22 am | lebron-jamesnba-basketball

In the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Celtics and Cavaliers, it’s all just been a matter of who wants it more. Right now, that honor belongs to the old pros from the one of the league’s oldest franchises, as the visiting Celtics took a commanding 3-2 series lead with a 120-88 hammer job of the Cavs on Tuesday night. Yes, it really is commanding, considering Game 6 is Thursday night – in Boston. It’s true that the Cavs already won there once in this series (Game 3), but it would be fair to wonder if they have the motivation to do it again. When it has meant the most, LeBron James and the Cavs have been playing their worst. LeBron looked particularly out of sorts – attempting just four shots in the first half, hitting none. The two-time MVP didn’t fare much better in the second stanza – going just 3-for-10 from the floor and making just two trips to the line. He finished with as many turnovers as made field goals.

“I spoil a lot of people with my play,” James said in one of the few borderline candid comments he made in his postgame interview. “When you have a bad game here or there, you’ve had three bad games in a seven-year career, then it’s easy to point that out. So you got to be better. I put a lot of pressure on myself to be out there and be the best player on the court, and when I’m not I feel bad for myself because I’m not going out there and doing the things I can do. But I don’t hang my head low or make any excuses about anything that may be going on, because that’s not the type of player or person I am.”

    Lebron’s legacy will be determined on game 6…. If he still gets this kind of effort then he will forever tarnish his career… Do I still believe… I’m trying but darn… :sad: ……..

  • Yeah… from now on it’s gotta be the amazing LeBron or else.

    If they lose to Boston it’s either Welcome LBJ in NYC or bye bye Mike Brown. I think it’s about time.

    Btw… the game was so ugly. Yuck!

    NYC? LOL! People still pushing that? It will be Chicago.

    Those are my two favorite “possible locations” (CHI + NYC) other than Cleveland, of course :mrgreen: .

    The King has his down times but as a player that he is he can win game 6 im sure he will take the cavs at the ECF ;)

  • I was watching the whole game. Yes, it was ugly game I had ever seen and looking up to Lebron 2 time MVP and he don’t even show it at all. He kept missing and only made a few shots. Now how can we call him an MVP ? I think we made a mistakes here people. We shouldn’t vote him to be an MVP. We should had vote somebody else to be MVP it should be Steve Nash cause he got hurt and came back to the game, Kobe Bryant he kept getting hurting and broken bones but he came back and played the best game, or Dwight Howard cause he gave the best defense during the whole season and still doing it in Playoff. We are voting for an embrassement player that we ever seen and we looked up to him and we are a fool to vote for him. Cause of his image, his shows, and his ego. Now he just a player like everybody else. I ain’t gonna vote for him to be MVP next time. I’ll vote either Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, or Dwight Howard that is who I am gonna vote on. That’s all I gotta say.

    yea because your mvp vote really counts huh BJ?

  • Morale

    yes , I saw the game and this was terrible. This was as in the space jam when aliens stole the power of players. I saw first time so helpless Lebron but in game 6 and 7 he will show their whole talent and Cleveland will win .

    Sad to say but that probably was Lebrons last home game at the Q. There is no way he will stick around if they don’t win the title this year. To be the #1 team in the league 2 years in a row and not make it to the Finals, I wouldn’t stick around either!

  • Could be LBJ’s last game in Cleveland home court.

  • Yeah, it counts. It won’t happen again.

  • mOe23

    Damn :!: I don’t know what’s causing LeBron to play poorly which bothers him most. Is it his elbow?, is it the new shoes his wearing, homecourt, Rumors, free agency issues, coach MB? is it the coaching staff? plays? is it his teamates? Oh seriously look at Mooondog at the picture first row in the middle embracing LeBron T_T. Come on LeBron! carry your team and prove critics wrong :!:

  • w1tness23

    last place hes goin to is ny they suck more than the cavs lol. Why would he go there just to not win a ring. It will probably be chicago, they have a great team and all they need is a lebron

  • Andre Valencia

    Beejay28 is WACK he doesnt know what hes talking about.

  • U will see this will be the last game.

  • Natedogg

  • TOLD YA! LAST GAME! BIOTCH!
