Notes: Center Zaza Pachulia, who missed Games 3 and 4 at San Antonio in the Western Conference finals with a bruised right heel, is back going through full practices in preparation to play in his first career Finals.

Cleveland leads Boston 3-1 and can wrap up its third straight Eastern Conference title Thursday night. James had 20 points and Deron Williams added 14 at the intermission.

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 spoke Thursday during the morning shootaround before the Cavaliers play the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

James has three National Basketball Association titles while Jordan has six. Cleveland is listed as a 10-point favorite in Game 5.

The Cavaliers basically conceded the East's top seed to the Celtics at the end of the regular season by opting to rest its starters in advance of the playoffs.

Love had his next two-point attempt blocked by Boston forward Jae Crowder, but that is when James went to work scoring the ball.

Irving had led a 17-point swing in the quarter. "The only thing that matters now is to get a win back in Boston".

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points. 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.

But as tension among Cleveland's home fans mounted at the Quicken Loans Arena, it was left to Irving to ride to the rescue with a sensational, momentum-changing display in the third quarter. Irving eventually finished with 42 points.

On the next trip down the floor, Irving pulled up for and buried his second triple of the quarter, and that gave the Cavaliers an 83-63 lead over the Celtics with 10:15 to play in the period. Kelly Olynyk had 15 points and this awesome dunk.

Cleveland - Kyrie Irving gritted his teeth, tightened up his left sneaker and hopped to his feet.

Led by Kyrie's career night, the Big Three did nearly all the heavy lifting on Tuesday night - combining for 93 points, the most Cleveland's power troika has ever tallied in a playoff game.

James also became the all-time leading scorer in playoff history, surpassing Michael Jordan.

For good measure, James added a right-wing three-pointer for Cleveland's next basket, and then, pulled up from well beyond the arc and converted his third straight triple, en route to tallying the Cavaliers' final nine points of the third quarter.
