KEY GAME INFORMATION
BOSTON: General manager Danny Ainge wooed Gordon Hayward away from Utah in free agency only to see him suffer a broken fibula and dislocated ankle on a play less than six minutes into a season-opening loss at Cleveland. All eyes will now be on Kyrie Irving, who was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Cavaliers that sent Isaiah Thomas to Cleveland. On paper it is an upgrade at point guard, adding a dynamic scorer who can create his own shot. While Boston has plenty of talent, there are also questions that need to be answered. Rebounding is a big one, and another is how exactly how this new 'position-less' starting five will fare on the defensive end. Some combination of Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier and rookie Semi Ojeleye are expected to be more involved than initially planned in an effort to fill the void created by Hayward's injury. The Celtics are set up for the future with Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, but it's unclear if this group as constituted has enough firepower to dethrone the Cleveland as East champions.
CLEVELAND: There's a chance that LeBron James could end up being as motivated as ever this season, fueled by Kyrie Irving's trade demand and coming off a season in which he finished fourth in the MVP voting. Despite losing Irving, the Cavs remain the class of the Eastern Conference and it's hard to imagine any team denying them a fourth straight Finals appearance, particularly with Boston having suffered a major blow with the season-ending injury Gordon Hayward suffered in the season opener at Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas is expected back from his back injury by year's end, but his return could end up complicating things for head coach Tyronn Lue, who must keep everyone happy with their playing time. Kevin Love's move to center should open floor space for James, Dwayne Wade and Derrick Rose. James can opt out of his contract next summer and become a free agent and his future plans will hover over the Cavs all season. But back with Dwayne Wade, he and the Cavs seem to be in a happy place.
PREVIEW
Pressure's on James, Cavaliers in Game 6 vs. Celtics
 

CLEVELAND -- This stage was made for LeBron James.

The Cleveland Cavaliers face elimination against the Boston Celtics on Friday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. And no player is better when his back is against the wall than James.

In 21 games in which his team has faced elimination in the playoffs, James is averaging an NBA-record 33.5 points. He has played in seven of these with the Cavs dating to the 2015 playoffs, and not only is he averaging 36.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, and 9.1 assists in those games, he has scored 40 or more five times and Cleveland has won four of those games.

The Cavs trail 3-2 in this series, but the home team has won every game to date. Game 6 is in Cleveland, where the Cavs have won seven straight.

And if the rumors are true, this could be James' final game with the Cavaliers in Cleveland. He can be a free agent at season's end and will consider coming back to the Cavs as well as a host of other options.

Also on the line is James' consecutive Finals streak. He has gone to the last seven, including the past three with the Cavs.

So, yes, the stakes couldn't be higher. And the player couldn't be better in this moment.

"If I had to pick one guy and choose one guy to prevail, it would be LeBron," Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "I know he'll be great come tomorrow."

The Celtics have two chances to go to their first Finals since 2010 -- the last year a non-LeBron team represented the East. That season, Boston knocked out James and the Cavs in six games in the second round, and James left the Cavs for the Miami Heat.

Again, if the rumors are to be believed and James is on his way out of Cleveland again, history has a shot at coming pretty close to repeating itself here.

"At the end of the day, it's incredibly hard to beat a good team in the NBA one time, and our focus is on what we need to do to give ourselves the best chance at being successful tomorrow night," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said when asked about the emotional roller coaster of what's coming for James in Game 6.

The series is where it is because the Celtics won Game 5 96-83, even though they shot just 36 percent from the field. James finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists but committed six turnovers and looked tired at times. Both Lue and James acknowledged that was the case.

Kevin Love was the only other Cavaliers player who scored in double figures in Game 5.

Boston's defense, again, was smothering. The Cavs were forced into 15 turnovers. The Celtics changed their starting lineup and went big, inserting Aron Baynes for Marcus Morris but often playing both of them with Al Horford.

Boston won the rebounding battle 45-39. Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 24 points for his ninth 20-point game in the playoffs, tying Donovan Mitchell and David Robinson for second all time among rookies.

The Celtics played two pretty bad games in Cleveland earlier this series when they were pounded by 30 in Game 3 and didn't recover from a slow first quarter in a 111-102 loss in Game 4.

"You can't live or die with every loss or win," Stevens said. "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."

The last time the Cavs faced an elimination scenario -- which means the last time they had to deal with the whole "LeBron's last game" narrative -- was Game 7 of the first round against the Pacers.

James scored 45 that day and the Cavs survived.

"We have another opportunity on Friday to be as good as we can be, play Cavs basketball on our home floor and force a Game 7," James said. "I look forward to seeing us respond on Friday night."
