Lue: Cavs' Irving feeling 'good' after Game 4 ankle injury

Tristan Thompson plays defense on Boston’s Al Horford in Game 4. The Cavaliers believe their defense improved in the second half

Cleveland had appeared to be cruising towards a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals after romping to victory in the opening two games of the best-of-seven series. James now has recorded at least 30 points, five assists and five rebounds in a National Basketball Association playoff record 69 games.

All Star guard Kyrie Irving then proceeded to take the helm and lead his side back into the contest on with a spectacular offensive performance, scoring nearly at will as the Cavs gradually eroded the Celtics' lead. That stretch might have been the most important of Game 4; after James hit the bench and the Celtics advantage reached 16 points, Irving danced with the basketball, spun in shots, and refused to let the Cavaliers deficit widen.

James didn't score in the fourth quarter and went only 1 for 8 from the field with one rebound and one assist in the second half. He scored 11 points total and just three, on 1-of-9 shooting, as the Boston went on a rampage throughout the second half. For a guy who's played great for five straight months, he's got to have a bad game sooner or later. 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. "I felt like we played well enough to win". It was his shocking inactivity in the fourth quarter against the Celtics, given his historic efforts against them and Jae Crowder - who typically defends James. "He didn't shoot the ball well, and we still had a 20-point lead". No sooner had last week's wild draft lottery dropped off the radar of the league's devoted UFO spotters ("Lemme guess: Boston goes first, then Lakers at No. 2?) up popped Game 3 Sunday between the Celtics and Cavaliers".

After a season-low 11 points in Sunday's Game 3 loss and despite making just one of his six three-point attempts, James scored 34 points on 15-of-27 shooting.

Given how Boston played before halftime, Stevens said, "That stings when you can't pull those out".

Bovada includes many other potential bets for Celtics-Cavs Game 4, including over/unders.

Cleveland can close out the series with a victory in Game 5 on Thursday.

"It was a weird game, a weird-feeling game", Lue said.

"No blame. We're all to blame", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Tuesday (AEDT), a day after his team was stunned 111-108 by the Celtics. They made a lot of plays.

The money line for the Celtics against the Cavs in Game 4 is set at +1200, meaning that a $100 bet on the Celtics would win you $1,200.

Credit the Celtics for fighting back on the road. "So I didn't think I could be Mike". "He was able to get by us and make tough shots in the paint".
