Twitter roasts Celtics for choking away Game 7

Twitter roasts Celtics for choking away Game 7

James, seeking his eighth straight trip to the Finals, comes in averaging 34.9 in Game 7s - including his 45 to help eliminate the Indiana Pacers in this year's first round.

This game had the drama - if not the style points - that's been missing in the first six contests. The last time an NBA Finals did not feature James was in 2010. At some point in July - and following the departure of general manager David Griffin - James' co-star, Kyrie Irving, asked for a trade, a request the Cavs ultimately acquiesced when they sent him to the Celtics in exchange for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick.

But the Cavs rallied in the second half, with the scoreline finely balanced and the lead changing hands several times over the rest of the match.

This win cements LeBron as the undisputed, certifiably greatest Celtics-killer of them all.

Cleveland became the fifth team in league history to reach the Finals as a fourth (or lower) seed.

"Sorry for you guys that don't know much about Cedar Point", James said, "but it's been a roller coaster".

"It's about just winning the game now", said Boston's Marcus Smart, who has done his share of mixing it up with James in this series.

Tatum brought the building alive with a driving dunk and 3-pointer to give the Celtics the lead when Jeff Green answered with a 3-pointer and Tristan Thompson got loose for an uncontested slam.

The Celtics are 10-0 at home this postseason, and are actually 2.5-point favorites heading into Game 7.

"It was pretty incredible run by an incredible group of guys, and an absolute pleasure and privilege to be around them every day", Stevens said. "We've been really fortunate to continuously get better the past couple of years". It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny.

The NBA final begins Thursday at either Houston or Golden State.

Irving underwent an earlier knee surgery in March to have a tension wire removed from the kneecap.

Horford scored 17 and Morris delivered 14 points with 12 rebounds off the bench on a night when Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier were a combined 7-for-32 from the floor for 17 points.

Motivation and inspiration from a team's best player when injured is vastly underrated and a young team could have benefited greatly from just that last night. "We've talked about it all year, we know what the narrative has been about our team".

James embraced Horford and Tatum after the buzzer, then the Cavaliers donned celebratory hats and T-shirts before shuffling off the court to receive the Eastern Conference championship trophy.

Lue went on to say that doubting James "sells; negative press on the Cavs sells".
