LeBron makes it 8 straight after superstar showing in Game 7

  • Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland?

Making his first begin because the first-round opener towards Indiana, Inexperienced scored 19 factors and added eight rebounds - the star of James' starless supporting forged. The Cavaliers were probably far better previous year and could only get a game from the Warriors.

"As these series go on it gets harder and harder to win games, and you have to play with great force at both ends of the court against really good teams", said the Celtics coach. At age 33, in the 100th game of his 15th National Basketball Association season, he played all 48 minutes on the road in a Game 7 without Kevin Love.

As well as his 35 points, James finished with 15 rebounds and nine assists, while Jeff Green, who made his first start since the opening game of the first round against IN, recorded 19 points and eight rebounds.

End of quarter: Celtics 25, Cavs 20: Celtics take a five-point lead into the second quarter thanks in large part to 15 first-quarter points from Jaylen Brown.

Every time the Celtics made a run to cut into the Cavs' lead, James made a play - be it a stepback jumper, a precision pass or a chase-down block - to stem Boston's momentum and keep Cleveland in the driver's seat.

"It's a Game 7", James said.

Turning Point - Much has been made about each team's struggles in the first and third quarters of the series.

James led that comeback to Cleveland's first title, and now he's got a shot for another unlikely one.

Rozier III lead all Celtics with 28 points (10-16 FG, 6-10 3PT), three rebounds and seven assists in 40 minutes.

With the Cavs facing elimination without Kevin Love, who left the game with a possible concussion in the first quarter, James put on an absolute clinic.

"It was a good game". He didn't come back, and guys got together and they played.

It was a sloppy game all around for the Celtics, who looked lost on offense for large stretches of the game.

George Hill comes up big in Game 6 with 20 points. He scored 46 points in Game 6, has seven games of 40 or more points this postseason, and has won the last six Game 7s. And after not scoring a single point in first half, Horford ended up with six points, nine boards and four assists on 2-for-8 from the field. "Obviously, like I said the other night, I believe in every guy on the bench, whether they played the other night or not".

It is not yet known whether Kevin Love will make it to game seven after the All-Star left the game following a head injury in a clash with Tatum in the first quarter.

Game 1 of the finals will take place on Thursday night and the road to the Larry O'Brien trophy will once again have to go through LeBron James. His injury led to more minutes for Green, which actually benefited the Cavaliers on Friday night. By then, any chance of reaching the NBA Finals had slipped away.
