LeBron Takes Cavaliers to NBA Finals Again

  • LeBron James and Jayson Tatum

"And to come on the road where all the games have been lopsided, both home teams have pretty much been in great shape at home, and to come here in a hostile environment, Game 7, Eastern Conference finals, this and Game 7 of the NBA Finals in 2016, right there". James has never made the Finals as lower than a 2-seed and has never won multiple series in the East playoffs without home-court advantage. 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.

And they haven't even come close to being fully actualized. Cleveland's spacing was cramped with Jeff Green in Love's place, and its minutes with reserves Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson on the court were disastrous.

The Celtics led by as many as 12 points in the first half, and they had a 51-47 lead midway through the third quarter when James hit a long 3-pointer and then Green made a 3 of his own. "We've got to get the job done". Our defense was really solid. "We've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years and started in September and that's every day".

Irving - who was ruled out for the remainder of the season after requiring a second knee surgery in April - sat courtside for a number of throughout the Celtics' playoff run and was often spotted smiling with his teammates.

"It has been an awesome, crazy, hard year", Korver said. Rozier, to his credit, went up strong but it just wasn't enough and the result was James standing and staring him down after sending his effort back. It's something you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me. You got to be able to get down and get dirty. "It's been roses. There have been thorns in the roses". In the postseason, they have not exactly transformed into a typical title contender, but they have papered over their flaws and persevered. "I really can't believe it, to be honest with you".

Added Terry Rozier, who has often found himself outmanned in a switching situation that left him on James: "We know LeBron is different than a lot of other guys, but we've got to get the job done".

And when questioned about the team's inconsistency of late, Green replied: "You'd be a fool not to believe me". The thing about playing the Warriors is that you have to work incredibly hard to keep pace with their scoring.

LeBron James was dominant as ever in Game 6, going off for a series-high 46 points and narrowly missing his second triple-double of the series.

"It was asked of me tonight to play the whole game", he said.

"I think we've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years, and we started on September 25th", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

This might be his weakest supporting cast year. It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny. It would have been the most 2018 Celtics thing to 2018 Celtics. They are more versatile and much more athletic.

It's not the one they want. "I meant no disrespect by it".

The moment rarely looked too big for the 20-year-old Tatum throughout his rookie year, and he elevated his game in the playoffs, averaging 18.2 points per contest during the postseason. It's unbelievable. His abilities give the rest of us confidence. "That it's going to end in the finals is really wonderful, it really is", forward Kyle Korver said in the Cavs' locker room on Sunday night.
