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

Game 7 it is again for James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who defeated the Boston Celtics 109-99 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday.

James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cavs in Cleveland, delivered another sensational performance - he added 11 rebounds and nine assists while playing all but two minutes - to avoid elimination and delay any decisions about his future.

James will make his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance.

This series, in which home court has meant everything, will have a fitting conclusion Sunday at TD Garden, where the Celtics are 10-0 this postseason.

Cleveland's bench combined for 36 necessary points with Love out - 14 from Green, 10 from Larry Nance Jr. and six points each from Kyle Korver and Jordan Clarkson.

Earlier in the playoffs, LeBron James said, "Game 7, I always said are the two greatest words in sports".

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. That's just how dominant James has been this season, which is his 15th in the league. "Come out and play some great basketball, high energy and let's see who comes out on top".

Now a career 13-9 in elimination games, James leads the caravan back to Boston.

LeBron James writhes in pain on the floor after suffering a suspected knee injury in the final quarter of the game.

LeBron Takes Cavaliers to NBA Finals Again
Not only did he play all 48 minutes, but he dropped 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting and added 15 rebounds and nine assists. It's something you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me.

Brown poured in 15 points as the Celtics took a 25-20 lead after the first period, which was just the start they were looking for after falling behind by 15 after one in Game 3 and by 16 in Game 4. This is one of the best stretches a player has had in NBA History.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, "I thought the biggest moment of the game was when we couldn't extend the lead in the second quarter".

After Kevin Love went down halfway through the opening quarter, the signs looked ominous for the Cavaliers but it wasn't to be this time.

Between 2016 and 2017, the Cavs made the Golden State Warriors scrap four title celebrations.

Timing can be a unusual thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010. And it took the king playing all 48 minutes to get him there.

Australian big man Baynes was Boston's starting centre but had his most underwhelming game of the series, going scoreless and grabbing four rebounds.

But James drilled back-to-back three-pointers in a 43-second span to up the lead to 107-96 and quash remaining suspense.

Yet when you have James, all you want is an opportunity.

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. While the Cavaliers didn't have Kevin Love to turn to Sunday night, Jeff Green would fill in. I think about the teams that I've played over this run and the players that I've played over this run, slightly.
