LeBron James Beat Reporter — Plain Dealer

NBA reporter for the Northeast Ohio Media Group covering LeBron James and the Cavaliers.;

Check out this crazy LeBron James shot from Cavaliers practice — BOSTON -- We knew LeBron James plays really well at Boston's TD Garden. But this is ridiculous. Following Saturday's practice, a shirtless James canned a 94-footer, football style, on his way out of the gym. The footage is courtesy of James' personal trainer, Mike Mancias, who posted the video to his Vine account.

It's closing time for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, which puts pressure on both teams — BOSTON - With this being Red Sox country and David Blatt hailing from suburban Boston, the Cavaliers coach was quick to rattle off some names from Fenway's storied past to complete an analogy about "closing" time in basketball.

LeBron James said "we're not looking to blow anybody out," but the series with Boston isn't that close — BOSTON -- LeBron James wasn't sure if it was his block of Evan Turner's dunk, or his assist to Kevin Love for that dagger three-pointer, or maybe the charge he drew on Jae Crowder.

That time LeBron James offered a full-throated defense of Kevin Love after Game 3 — BOSTON - The Celtics were beaten Thursday night by the very play they had worked to take away from LeBron James and the Cavaliers all series. James dribbled and spun into the lane with the shot clock running out before firing to Kevin Love in the right corner for a three with 26.7 seconds left in the game.

LeBron James adds another to his "legacy" in Boston — BOSTON -- LeBron James has delivered better performances in bigger games at Boston's TD Garden, but the effort he gave in the Cavaliers' 103-95 win over the Celtics in Game 3 Thursday night ranks among the already list of memorable postseason games for him here.

The LeBron James rundown: Game 3, Cleveland Cavaliers 103-95 over the Boston Celtics — BOSTON - LeBron James poured in 31 points and the Cavaliers all-but wrapped up this Eastern Conference first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. James recorded his 70th playoff game with at least 30 points in Cleveland's 103-95 win over Boston to go ahead 3-0 in the series.

LeBron James ranks with Michael Jordan, NBA greats when it comes to shining at Boston's Garden — BOSTON - Some of the great playoff performances in NBA history have happened in this city, in a building called the "Garden," where the Celtics have won 17 championships dating back to 1957. Some of them belong to LeBron James.

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he was "considering" a lineup change — BOSTON - Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he was "considering" a change to his lineup for Game 3 against the Cavs on Thursday night, but there's a single issue complicating any change he might make. "The one thing we haven't done is started slow," Stevens told reporters Wednesday, following his team's short practice in suburban Boston.

LeBron James on his 11 turnovers in two playoff wins over Boston: 'That's not going to cut it" — BOSTON - Twice on Tuesday night, LeBron James was picked off by a Celtics defender who was waiting for him to throw one of those skip passes to the weak side that normally makes him and the Cavaliers so tough to defend.

LeBron James freed his mind and the rest followed in his 30-point explosion against Boston — CLEVELAND, Ohio - The play was one seen so many times throughout LeBron James' illustrious, 12-year career, his 6-8, 250-pound body soaring through the air as he catches a pass and finishes an alley-oop.
