The Celtics held a 57-47 half-time lead, but the Cavaliers came out of the break on fire.
During the pre-game broadcast, TNT reported that LeBron James was suffering from a, "bug".
"[Kryie] saw LeBron went out, and he wanted to put the team on his shoulders, on his back, and just let us ride him until LeBron got back".
James has three National Basketball Association titles while Jordan has six. Cleveland is listed as a 10-point favorite in Game 5.
