Kyrie Irving, LeBron James power Cavs past Celtics in Game 4

But beyond James' foul trouble, the Cavs were having other issues as the Celtics outplayed them at both ends while opening a 16-point lead.

He scored 19 points over the final 4:48 of the quarter that included 4 driving layups, a runner, an alley-oop, a pair of 3s and a free throw. "He was born for these moments".

LeBron James is focused on future and not the past after the Cleveland Cavaliers suffered a disappointing defeat against the Boston Celtics.

"He showed why he's one of the best point guards in the league, and he commanded us to be better, especially in the second half".

The Cavaliers can clinch a third consecutive NBA Finals berth with a win in Game 5 on Thursday night in Boston.

After hiiting 18 three-pointers in Game 3, Bosotn dried up from beyond the arc, connecting on just 10 in Game 4.

Since Boston were without Isaiah Thomas due to a hip injury, the Cavaliers should have been able to keep the mojo going and dispatch the Celtics easily.

The Cavs, meanwhile, wouldn't be on the cusp of the Finals without Irving.

"In the back of my mind, I thought, 'They can't tie up the series, '" he said. We went through adversity.

"There's choices", Stevens said. "We've got to get back to that". In addition to Irving, James eventually found his groove and finished with 34 points, and Kevin Love added 17 points and a playoff career-high 17 rebounds. "They can not. We can not go to Boston 2-2 and then it becomes nearly an even series".

Irving kept the game close until half-time with 12 points.

"I feel like we're humble enough to know we haven't played well at home", he said. "But the loss is behind us, and now, we've got to play better". They were even cruising to victory in the first half of Game 3, up 21 on a Boston Celtics team missing Isaiah Thomas. Yet, LeBron had the worst performance of the 2017 playoffs (and his worst performance in years.) He only scored 11 points, his lowest offensive numbers since he put up just seven points since May 28, 2014. Kelly Olynyk had 15 points and this awesome dunk. If they know what's good for them, they'll finish this series in Boston for Game 5. Cavs G J.R. Smith and his wife brought home from the hospital their baby daughter Dakota, who had been in a Cleveland-area NICU since her birth in January.
