Betting action was mostly balanced or otherwise conflicting between various books.

The line on this game should only be -2 favoring Cleveland, according to the NBA Betting Power Ratings.  It was -6.5 to -7.

Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 24 points -- his ninth 20-point game of the postseason -- and Boston beat Cleveland 96-83 on Wednesday night to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals.

The Celtics held James to two fourth-quarter points, earning their 10th straight victory in Boston to remain perfect at home this postseason and move within one win of their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2010.

"I just enjoy playing in the big moments, in the big games. That's when I have the most fun," said Tatum, who needs one more 20-point game to tie Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's rookie record of 10 in a postseason.

"I can't say it enough: We're one win away from being in the finals," Tatum said. "The playoffs bring the best out of people."

Boston PG Marcus Smart had a series-best 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting in Game 5 after just 11-of-38 shooting over the first four contests while Cleveland SG JR Smith is averaging just 5.2 points on 9-of-39 shooting in the series.
