James was whistled for his fourth foul with almost seven minutes left in the first half, sending him to the bench. It was the first time James picked up a fourth foul in the first half in his career.
But the Cavs blitzed the Celts 40-23 in the third quarter behind Irving’s playoff career high, while James added 24 second-half points and, more importantly, didn’t pick up that fifth foul. James finished with 34 as the Cavs took a 3-1 series lead heading back to Boston.
