LeBron James doesn't offer praise just to be nice to another player on another team.

Despite having a better shooting percentage than the Celtics throughout Wednesday's contest, turnovers, struggles at the free-throw line and missed three-pointers proved to be the Cavaliers' downfall in the Game 5 loss in Boston.

Jayson Tatum #0 of the Boston Celtics reacts against the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game Five of the Eastern Conference Finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on May 23, 2018 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

Two hours before game time, an assistant coach opened his Apple laptop and sat with Semi Ojeleye, a muscular and athletic 6-foot-7 rookie. You just move on, and you get ready for the next one and you play it as well as you can, and I think one of the strengths of this team has been moving on.

"I think his composure is impressive, he plays above his age", James told National Basketball Association reporters before Game 5.

- After struggling in Games 3-5, Terry Rozier dazzled for Boston. "I felt so slow on that play". The Cavs also were just 5-of-17 shooting off James' passes, the lowest percentage for Cleveland in the past three postseasons.

That being said, this Cavaliers team is much less convincing than any of those Heat teams.

"I've loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here", LeBron admitted."He's just a true professional".

James has played more minutes than any other player this postseason at 648. The Cavs needed it to survive, but it's questionable if there will be lingering effects Sunday.

Love did not return to the game. "I know he'll be great come tomorrow".

Celtics: Own a 37-0 record when leading a series 2-0. The same thing happened I think Game 1 or 2; I cant remember, ” Lue added. Special night tonight and special night in Game 4.

Brad Stevens can at least appreciate greatness even when facing it.
