  • LeBron James isn't concerned about the noise the Boston Celtics crowd will make

"I just love everything about the kid, the way he plays the game and his demeanor", James said.

It was already insane that this core got any experience in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. This will mark the fourth year in a row the Cavaliers will face the Warriors in the NBA Finals.

The audience is now only 41,000 viewers behind 2012 Eastern Conference Finals Game 7 - the Miami Heat and LeBron James vs. the Boston Celtics.

The team that employs James has now won six straight Game 7s, two on the road.

The 33-year-old has reached the Finals for the eighth consecutive season but this campaign may be his crowning glory.

His personal-best of 697 points was set in the Miami Heat's 23-game run to the National Basketball Association championship in 2012. Rookie Jason Tatum again led the way for the Celtics with 24 points and seven rebounds, while All-Star Al Horford added 17 points. Kevin Durant upstaged him in last year's Finals, and LeBron's search for redemption promises to be among the biggest storylines this year.

Canada Buys Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline, To Ensure It Gets Expanded
A lack of capacity in pipelines or in rail cars to ship oil produced in Alberta is also hurting Canada's energy sector. But when even the prime minister of Canada doesn't understand that reality, the end result is economic disaster.

"Win, loss or draw, at end of my career you are never going to get someone to say I didn't leave it out on floor", the four-time league MVP James said. I know I get a lot of the headlines - win, lose or draw, whatever the case may be - but in order to be successful, it's a team game.

The non-LeBron Cavaliers weren't great, but they provided James with just enough support to pull out the win. In Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern final, he went for 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists to keep the Miami Heat alive before they won Game 7 back home.

The Celtics have had more time to get used to their injuries: Gordon Hayward has been out since the first game of the season, and Kyrie Irving has been sidelined since March.

"As far as being ready for Thursday, we're not sure. That's the fun part", Stevens said.

The game averaged a 9.1 rating among metered market households, besting everything else on television and ranking as ESPN's best-ever playoff game.

Statistically, James is having perhaps his best postseason, averaging over 30 points in each of the first three rounds. So instead of always slowing the pace, James often attacked to catch the Celtics off-guard before they could set up their defence.
