The Cleveland Cavaliers trailed by 10 at the time but managed to fall no further behind with James on the bench, heading into the locker room down 57-47. James, who was a surprising dud in Boston’s Game 3 win, had 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting in the half.
All four fouls on LeBron looked like fouls to me. But incredibly, against a team that can't keep him from basket, HE shot zero free throws.
But the Cavs blitzed the Celts 40-23 in the third quarter behind Kyrie Irving, who made 9 of 10 shots for 21 points, and held on for a 112-99 win. James added 24 second-half points and, more importantly, didn’t pick up that fifth foul.
Since LeBron's fourth foul, Kyrie Irving has 33 points on 13-for-16 shooting.
