Irving's 42, LeBron's 34 pushes Cavs past Celtics in Game 4

The All-Star guard responded with an incredible Game 4, pouring on a playoff career-high 42 points on a methodical 15-of-22 shooting to lead Cleveland to a 112-99 win on Tuesday.

Boston bound Crowder and the Celtics are looking forward to going home and redeeming themselves after the blowout losses in Games 1 and 2.

Jefferson told Fox Sports Ohio after Game 4 on Tuesday night that James got sick from a bug that was going around, which also caused backup Deron Williams to miss a shootaround. Kevin Love had a double-double with 17 points and 17 rebounds.

Guard Avery Bradley's game-winning three-pointer was the difference, as it rolled in to give Boston a 111-108 victory. That will allow for fans to see Game 4 tonight, as well as Game 5 on Thursday night from Boston.

"He's got to be aggressive, get downhill, play like he's been playing, play confident", Smith said Monday after practice. And that huge shot came over a minute after James was called for his fourth foul of the game. He capped his blistering 19-point outburst with a 3 in the final second of the quarter and celebrated at mid-court by pretending to put two pistols back in his holster.

In Game 2, the Cavs came out with even more intensity on defense, completely bottling up Thomas before he left the game at halftime without a field goal on 0-of-6 shooting from the field.

Larry Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center , a nonprofit watchdog group, said he was skeptical of that explanation. Almost 90 percent of EB-5 visas were issued to Chinese nationals in 2014, when the program reached its quota of 10,000 visas.


The Celtics traveled to Cleveland without their star, Isaiah Thomas, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the playoffs with a hip injury, but fought back to win.

The barely-breathing Celtics went in to Game 3 as 16.5-point underdogs and trailed by 21 points halfway through the third quarter.

"I thought we played as well as maybe we have the entire playoffs during the first half", Stevens said.

In the end, Boston just didn't have enough heroics - or bank-shot threes - to get it done. At that precise moment, the Celtics had outscored the Cavs, 105-64, since trailing 77-56 midway through the third quarter of Game 3.

The sloppiness from the second half of Game 3 carried over to the first quarter. "Just expect him to be better in game four".
