he's a transcendent player. It could very well be a game where if someone breathes on LeBron then a foul is called (unlike games 1, 2 and 5). It could definitely also be a situation where the Cavs finally shoot better as a team on the road, and someone like Clarkson or Hill hits a lot of 3s, etc. etc

He is a great player but one can see some old age and fatigue starting to grind on him.   I have seen him wilt in times of pressure a few times, granted it was early in his career that it happened more often.
If the Celts win, I don't think it will be because Lebron wilted, I think it will be because they were able to shut down other Cavs, and the Cavs defense is unable to stop them. I fully expect Lebron to have a great game. I'm thinking something along the lines of game 2.

I think James goes for under 30 today.

But I am worried about Hill, Korver and nance giving them extra possessions

He is afraid people will see his fatigue.  He is working very hard at hiding it.  Only 2 days rest after playing 46 out-of-his-mind minutes.  The guy is human...
