LeBron James will treat match versus Celtics on Wednesday just like any ordinary one
Wednesday night will mark the fourth and final meeting of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics in the regular season. It may also be the decider on who ends up with the top seed in the Eastern Conference, which adds to the importance of the matchup.
However, for LeBron James, he treats it just like any ordinary game and is not giving special attention to it. Although he admitted that it will be a good test for the Cavs, he also said that he should be the last person to be asked about a big game in the regular season.
“I’ve played in a lot of big games, man. I’m the last person to ask about a big game in the regular season. I’m sorry.”
“They’re gonna have a lot of energy, their crowd is gonna be great. That’s a very good team we’re playing against tomorrow, we know that. Taking nothing from them, they’ve been playing some great ball. But like I said, I’m not one to get caught up in regular-season big games and that, I’m sorry.
“I’ve been to six straight Finals, man, I’m the last person to ask about a regular-season game.”
Cleveland currently leads the season series 2-1 and is looking to win it on the night to boost their bid for the top spot in the conference, which they owned for almost the whole year. Both teams are currently tied with a 50-27 win-loss slate, but the Cavaliers are ranked higher because of their lead in head-to-head meetings this season.
The game is expected to be a hotly contested one as the winners on the night will also be able to send a strong message to their opponents, and have the psychological advantage should they meet again in the playoffs.
