Celtics fend off Cavs, return to Eastern Conference finals

Close-out games are tough. It's a level of stress, anxiety, desperation; it takes what it takes." - Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla

Everybody has an effect on each other, and we all impact each other to help winning and build this culture that we have." - Jayson Tatum

Cleveland led for chunks of the first half... before Boston eventually took a 58-52 lead into halftime

After shooting 4-for-22 from 3-point range over the first four games of the series, including 0-for-10 in the two games in Cleveland, Horford hit six in Game 5

But Boston -- including Horford -- shut down Cavaliers guard Darius Garland, holding him to 11 points on 4-for-17 shooting

Boston's sheer edge in talent eventually allowed the Celtics to wear out the Cavaliers and pull away down the stretch
