Celtics brace for 'dogfight' vs Cavs in Game 7 at home

Celtics brace for 'dogfight' vs Cavs in Game 7 at home

The four-time league MVP scored 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists on Sunday night, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 87-79 win over the Celtics and eliminating Boston from the Eastern Conference finals in the decisive seventh game.

The king is not dead, and he still has a chance to make his eighth consecutive NBA Finals.

The Celtics had been a spotless 10-0 this postseason at TD Garden before James & Co. delivered a lone season-ending blemish.

James' minute total has spiked to 40.6 per game in the playoffs, 4.1 more than the next closest remaining player (Terry Rozier).

Brown scored 15 points in the first quarter and finished with 27 for the game, but had just two points in that bad second quarter for Boston. This would obviously be a big loss for the Cavs. "Come out and play some great basketball, high energy and let's see who comes out on top". With a little bit of experience and time, I think these role players could blossom around LeBron James.

Jaylen Brown and the Celtics opened up the game with an early 10-6 lead at 6:58 and hustled their way through the quarter to maintain the lead behind solid play from their rising stars and company.

Cleveland took their first lead of the game at 34-33 only four minutes into the second following a LeBron James three and they never looked back.

"We know it is a challenge on their home floor", James said. "I think we've played now until May 25 and May 27 the last two years, and we started on September 25".

"I was proud of the way we fought back", said Boston coach Brad Stevens.

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.

From the Rockets to the Lakers to the Sixers, James has been linked to a plethora of future landing spots despite publicly stating his sole focus is on winning another championship with the Cavs. "That was a good job by Coach Stevens to insert him". The Cavs will meet the victor of Monday's Game 7 in the Western Conference between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, with Game 1 of the NBA Finals coming on Thursday, May 31. No matter whether we are picked to win or not, we have a great game plan.

Not long after that, James hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the game on ice while scoring 12 points following the mishap.

Jayson Tatum scored 24, Al Horford scored 17 and Marcus Morris added 14 factors with 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who had been trying to return to the NBA Finals for the primary time since 2010. "You've got to find a way, whatever it takes".

You might be saying, "What has James really accomplished?" Cleveland finished with a 44-31 advantage in rebounding, including 15-5 on the offensive boards, and went 18-of-22 at the stripe while Boston were a poor 11-of-20 at the line.

James had eight points and Hill added six to keep the Cavs in it early, but the rest of the team was just 2-for-11 from the field.
