Boston G Shane Larkin (shoulder) did not play again on Wednesday and is likely out for the remainder of the series. LeBron James looked tired in the Game Five loss, but I would expect him to rally the troops at home and force a Game Seven in Boston. Take Cleveland to win and cover at home. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Cavaliers win and cover ATS 106-94.
