Green to start in place of hurt Love in Game 7

Green to start in place of hurt Love in Game 7

The Rockets take a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in Oakland on Saturday night. He has almost single-handedly kept the Cleveland Cavaliers alive in the postseason against the Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Boston Celtics.

Five minutes into game six, Kevin Love collided with Jayson Tatum and suffered a concussion, which will keep him on the sideline for Game 7. I'll do the same all day [Saturday] from before we leave to go to Boston, and then once we get into Boston I'll do that as well. Eliminating LeBron James from a playoff series isn't for the faint of heart.

It was James' seventh 40-point game of the 2018 postseason, tying Michael Jordan for the most such games in a single postseason since 1989.

James looked rattled midway through the fourth quarter when he clashed with teammate Nance Jr, who collided with James' knee. All seven players who saw real minutes scored at least six points, with five of them scoring in double digits.

James was asked how the physical setback compared to when he rolled his ankle in Game 4 of the 2015 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Chicago Bulls and stayed in the game to hit a buzzer-beater to win it.

"As soon as I leave here, I'll start to prepare", James said of his treatment regimen.

LeBron James produced another epic playoff performance Friday as the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed alive in the National Basketball Association playoffs with a 109-99 victory over the Boston Celtics. But we have to do our jobs on every possession and there's a lot of physical demands that go along with that.

James and the Heat made quick work of Game 7, closing out a tough series with a blowout.




The numbers bare it out: In Cleveland's three games in Boston, Hill is averaging 5.0 points per, shooting 31 percent from the floor. James also notched 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and a blocked shot.

He had a 46-point, 12-rebound outing and a 45-point Game 7 against IN in games where he didn't make a buzzer-beater. They've rightfully earned their status as favorite for Game 7, if for no other reason than their impressive 10-0 record at home in the postseason.

The NBA Play-offs are finely poised with both conference finals all square heading into the deciding matches.

"It's not going to be pretty", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. Kyle Korver needs to find space and knock down threes, the good J.R. Smith needs to show up (that version of him missed a lot of time this series, he's been terrible for several games), and Tristan Thompson needs to get some offensive rebounds.

James sat out less than two minutes in the 48-minute contest, taking his first rest with less than a minute to play in the third quarter.

"I just felt someone fall into my leg, and my leg kind of went in", James explained from the postgame podium.

Love missed the majority of Cleveland's 2015 run to the Finals after separating his shoulder in the first round against Boston.
