The Cavs are in Boston tonight for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The series is tied 2-2, with both teams winning their home games.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Celtics are undefeated, 9-0, at TD Garden, while the Cavs have lost just once at the Q.

An Akron native has started a crowdsourcing campaign to give the city a life-sized tribute to LeBron James. Aaron Carey is hoping to raise $1 million for the statue on GoFundMe.com.

At Monday's shootaround, James said he appreciates the gesture, but had not thought about a pose.

"I mean, I don’t know. I don’t have a particular pose in mind but, like I said, I just think it’s the thought that counts. It’s pretty cool.”

Carey says James’ comments give him hope he will be able to raise the money for the statue.

The Cavs lost against the Boston Celtics to fall 0-2 in the series. LeBron James scored a triple double with 42 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, but it wasn't enough to overcome a strong second half by Boston. James’ dominance in the playoffs over the years has taken its toll on a number of NBA coaches, including his own.

The Cavs fell to the Celtics yesterday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. But fans who watched the game at The Q weren’t close to writing off their team.
