LeBron James Back In Boston For Another Game 7 Against Celtics

LeBron James Back In Boston For Another Game 7 Against Celtics

"You've got to find a way, whatever it takes". Jeff Green added 14 off the bench, Larry Nance had 10 and Kyle Korver and Jordan Clarkson chipped in six apiece as the Cavs reserves helped fill the void left by Love's early exit.

According to oddsmakers, the Celtics are a 2.5-point favorite to win on the spread line.

In that Game 7, LeBron went for 45 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Love played in just five minutes of the Cavs' Game 6 win over the Celtics on Friday before leaving the game following a collision with Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum.

The key is going to be making sure the Cavaliers do not get another advantage outside of James, and the Celtics get an advantage at every other position. "You've got to put guys in the game to give them an opportunity to be successful".

"Nothing else matters now except for tonight", coach Tyronn Lue said.

The victor will move on to the championship series against the winner of the Western Conference Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, which the Rockets lead 3-2. But that's not because of a very young LeBron, who finished with 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists in a road loss to a veteran Pistons team that had won the National Basketball Association title two years before this matchup.

Notes: James chose Boston as the place he'll play next. Game 6 was just the second time Horford has been limited to single-digit scoring this postseason.

Love and Tatum were away from the ball and didn't see each other until it was too late. They will need to rebound. He's the best player on the court, the best of his generation, and with the Cavs it all starts with him - he can't be just merely good for the Cavaliers to win, he has to be superhuman. However, as a precautionary measure, likely to test for a concussion, Love went back into the locker room shortly afterward. He had to be helped to the sideline and at halftime the Cavaliers said he wouldn't return.

"Feels good just to be able to play for another game", James said after the game. And any talk about James' future is on hold.

The 33-year-old has said several times since coming home in 2014 that he wants to retire with the Cavaliers, but fans are uneasy because he can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and test free agency.

And, of course, he left in 2010. Coach Brad Stevens praised James for his consistency, and ability to exceed expectations.

For now, though, he's only going to Boston. Boston is also the younger team that bounces back faster, something that matters because this is the third game in five days for these teams (great scheduling, NBA... ugh). He played instead of Thompson during this series, up until the final game. "Tremendous. I thought the second was wasn't quite as contested maybe as the first one". James has either posted a triple double or scored at least 40 points in seven straight elimination games.
