The Cavs lost 96–83, and Boston now leads the series 3–2.
After the game, a reporter asked Lue if something was "out of whack" with his rotation.
Lue said the Celtics “threw (the Cavs) for a loop” by declining to play Ojeleye. He said that's why Korver didn’t play as many minutes.

Well the comments confused a lot of people.

If nobody else is going to say it, I will: Tyronn Lue has made some questionable decisions with his rotation tonight.— Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) May 24, 2018
Listen, I like Tyronn Lue...I do. But Semi Ojeleye, yes, SEMI OJELEYE should NEVER have an impact on your rotations and what you're looking to do. Stop.— Nick Camino (@NickCaminoWTAM) May 24, 2018
Game 6 will be Friday.
