LeBron James finished game four of the eastern conference finals with 44 points on 17-for-28 shooting from the field and being 1-for-4 from three and Kyle Korver came out off the bench and finished with 14 points on 4-for-7 from the field and 2-for-5 from deep along with three key blocks to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers (50-32) over the Boston Celtics (55-27), 111-102, to tie the series at two games apiece.
Although Kevin Love found himself in foul trouble during the game, Love was still a factor on the court pulling down 11 rebounds and scoring nine points on 3-for-12 shooting from the field and shooting 1-for-4 from deep.
The Boston Celtics are currently undefeated at home during the postseason but have only won a singular game on the road this postseason. All five starters for the Celtics scored in double digits but were led by Jaylen Brown who scored 25 points on 10-for-23 shooting from the field and went 2-for-6 from deep. Brown had help from his starting teammates as Morris had 10 points, Horford had 15, Tatum had 17 and Rozier had 16 points.
After being down 16 points after the 1st quarter, the Celtics made multiple occasions when they crept back into the game especially during the second half. Even while outscoring the Cavaliers by six in the second half the Celtics looked much better than how they started the game.
The Cavaliers shot 50.6% from the field with 41-for-81 shooting while the Celtics had a field goal percentage of 41.2% with 35-for-85 from the field. The Cavaliers outscored the Celtics by 12 in the point as the Cavaliers scored 50 points in the paint and holding the Celtics to just 38 points. The Cavaliers also outrebounded the Celtics 47-37 while both teams grabbed nine offensive rebounds apiece.
