The Boston Celtics are one game away from upsetting the Cleveland Cavaliers and reaching the NBA Finals, but Game 6 is in Cleveland, and the Celtics have only won one road game this postseason. Will they be able to overcome those road demons, or will LeBron and the Cavs force a Game 7?

Boston Celtics show value of extra opportunities in game 5 (Fansided)
Semi Ojeleye may have finished off the Cavaliers (Red's Army)

What they're saying about the Cleveland Cavaliers:
LeBron James heads into Game 6 feeling good about Cavaliers' defense against Boston (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
On the Brink of Elimination, LeBron James Must Be Perfect for Cavs to Survive (Bleacher Report)
The Cleveland Cavaliers will go as far as LeBron James takes them (Fansided)

Prediction: Cavs win 110-97
Why has the home team won every game in this series? Role players traditionally play better at home than they do on the road and I expect that to continue for the Cavs - especially considering the Celtics are just 1-6 on the road this postseason. Plus, you can count on LeBron James having a huge game.
