Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics- 8 ET ESPN
There’s a very interesting situation taking place tonight in Boston. One in which the league’s best player will be put to a challenge in a never before seen event. With their backs against the wall, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers face elimination on the road after failing to take Game 5 at home.
King James is coming off the worst playoff performance of his career and being the reigning back-to-back MVP the NBA world expects nothing but a bounce-back, spectacular performance in Game 6. When it comes to the league, In LeBron James I Trust. Despite the elbow injury, James will come out firing early and often in Game 6. Not only will it be important for him to develop a rhythm early but in doing so he’ll also be able to quiet down the Boston crowd.
It’ll be interesting to see which crew of officials Mr. Stern decides to assign this game. For one, the league’s hope is that this series will go the maximum 7 games and for two, if the NBA could wish upon a star they’d hope for a Kobe vs. LeBron NBA Finals. The NBA will get one of its two wishes granted tonight a 7th game back in Cleveland. Cavaliers behind a fired up LeBron get the job done tonight in a do or die battle.
