It may not seem like it because of the final score, but a lot of what the Cavaliers did right in Game 4 carried over into Game 5. In non-garbage time (per Cleaning the Glass), Boston scored just 88.6 points per 100 possessions in the half court and finished only 11-of-26 (42.3%) from the rim.

 

One of the big differences was the home whistle: After drawing just three fouls at the rim in Game 4, the Celtics drew nine in Game 5.
