The Cleveland Cavaliers will be trying to extend a winning streak on Thursday when they take on the Boston Celtics at TD Garden, for the 5th game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS: Irving tweaked an ankle but didn’t seem to be the least bit affected as he scored 33 of his points during an impressive 19-minute stretch. “He’s a special kid,” James said of Irving. “He’s a special talent. As the stakes get higher and higher, his game gets higher and higher, but it was nothing surprising for me.” James overcame early foul trouble to make 15-of-27 shots after suffering through a porous Game 3 in which he tallied just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting.

ABOUT THE CELTICS: Guard Marcus Smart was a Game 3 hero with 27 points as he capably stepped up in the wake of Isaiah Thomas’ season-ending hip injury. But he was unable to follow up that outing as he had just eight points on 1-of-9 shooting in Game 4 for his third single-digit deficit of the series. Crowder battled through a groin injury in Game 4 and produced 18 points and eight rebounds and is averaging 15.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in the series.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cavaliers listed as 10-point favorites versus the Celtics, while the game’s total is sitting at 215½.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are one victory away from joining the Golden State Warriors in a high-profile NBA Finals’ rematch. Second-seeded Cleveland looks to sew up its spot when it visits the top-seeded Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Thursday.

The Cavaliers took a 3-1 lead with a 112-99 victory in Game 4 as point guard Kyrie Irving (42 points) and small forward LeBron James (34) scored at will. Cleveland looked in jeopardy of returning to Boston with the series tied before a torrid second half in which it outscored the Celtics 65-42. The Celtics haven’t found the home floor to be much help against the Cavaliers as they lost the first two games by an average of 28.5 points, including a 130-86 setback in Game 2. “We’re humble enough to know that we haven’t played well at home, and we want to give our home crowd a better outing than we did the past two games,” forward Jae Crowder told reporters. “We’re right there where we want to be, we’re locked in.”
