How Semi Ojeleye ruined the Cavaliers’ game plan

Cleveland Cavaliers: What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 5

His impact on the franchise, however, was apparent on Monday night.

The four-time MVP victor had a great outing on the court for the Cavaliers in their win, but he himself was impressed by the production of his teammate, Kyle Korver, who finished with 14 points and had a solid defensive performance on Celtics guard Jaylen Brown.

According to Lue, the plan was for Korver to matchup with Semi Ojeleye, but the Celtics never deployed the king of combat muscles, which Lue struggled to adjust to. Lue, who is just 41 years old himself, couldn't believe that Korver is 37.

The Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics 111-102 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on Monday night to keep their playoff hopes alive.

James has logged an NBA-leading 648 minutes this postseason and that reinforced just how much wear and tear James has endured in his career above and beyond the grind of regular-season play.

"I've loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here", James said, referring to the midseason deal to acquire Korver in 2016-17.

Gwyneth Paltrow says Brad Pitt threatened to kill Harvey Weinstein for her
When the interviewer said he loved Pitt for what he did, Paltrow said "he is the best" and that she too loves him for it. Paltrow said her boyfriend-of-the-time "leveraged his fame and power" to defend her and she adores him for that.

Griffin was able to extract Korver from the Atlanta Hawks in January 2017 for the price of a future top-10 protected first-round pick, which will convert into two second-round selections should it not be conveyed by 2020. "There's not many of us '03 class guys still around", James said.

"I just can't say enough about him". It's not about his age. "The same thing happened I think Game 1 or 2; I can't remember".

While the praise for the genius of Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has sometimes bordered on absurd, especially this postseason, Cavaliers coach Ty Lue's postgame press conference should provide a glimpse at the alternatives in today's National Basketball Association. "You very rarely see a 36-year-old running full speed against Marcus Smart, against Rozier and diving for the loose ball and laying it all on the line".

After the game, a reporter asked Lue if something was "out of whack" with his rotation.

"He's 37 now? God dang", Lue said. "We're playing him too many minutes".
