“You can’t live or die with every loss or win. You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can.”
The Boston Celtics took a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals last night beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83.
Rookie Jayson Tatum led the way for the Celtics with 24 points on 7-15 shooting. Tatum also added 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Throw in 4 steals and Tatum had an amazing game at both ends of the floor.
It was Tatum’s ninth 20-point game of the post-season.
“I just enjoy playing in the big moments, in the big games. That’s when I have the most fun,” said Tatum.
Game 6 is in Cleveland Friday night. If the Cavs manage to win, Game 7 will be back in Boston on Sunday.
“We’re looking forward to having an opportunity to force a game 7,” said LeBron James.
James finished the night with 26 points and 10 rebounds but he turned the ball over 6 times.
The Cavaliers turned it over 15 times here the Celtics had just 8 turnovers.
Cleveland was 9-34 from distance. Celtics made 13 3-pointers.
Would have been 76 today…
RIP “The Rajah”
