LeBron James owns Terry Rozier with vicious chase-down block

  • Al Horford doesn't believe in game-to-game momentum in playoffs

That's according to Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue, who was grateful to James for providing 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists as they saw off Boston 109-99 at Quicken Loans Arena.

And he would not be denied an eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals.

I can't wait to see if James can beat Boston at home, where the Celtics are 10-0 in the postseason.

Then James thundered to life, and got help everywhere, most notably from Hill (20 points) and reserves Jeff Green (14 points) and Larry Nance, Jr.

Although Boston remains unbeaten at home in the playoffs, the Celtics know they can't afford to be complacent against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Terry Rozier scored 28 points to lead the Celtics, who are trying to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010. He is 33 years old and there are no signs of Lebron James slowing down anytime soon, even in his 15th National Basketball Association season. His 46 points are a career-high in an elimination game. The Celtics kept battling, cutting the lead into single digits on multiple occasions in the fourth quarter, but it never really felt like they had a chance to win, and that's because of LeBron James. He's not only done it all so that everything feels like it's been said about him, but he has done it all at such a superlative level that you run out of effective modifiers to describe his accomplishments.

The Celtics led by as many as 12 factors within the first half, they usually had a 51-47 lead halfway by means of the third quarter when James hit an extended 3-pointer after which Inexperienced made a Three of his personal. Love called his Game 7 availability a "toss-up" after the game, but that's probably even being optimistic. "But we could play really well tonight and lose".

Brad Stevens can at least appreciate greatness even when facing it. The Cavs didn't miss Love much, after he banged heads with Tatum in the first quarter and was ruled out for the night at halftime.


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

James often says the same thing, "staying in the moment".

That's just one of many reasons I can't wait for Sunday's game.

Cleveland finished with the number four seed and were on the brink of elimination in just the first round as they were taken to seven games by the Indiana Pacers.

James and the Cavs saved their season in an unlikely manner - with Kevin Love sidelined with a head injury following a collision with Boston's Jayson Tatum, a great performance from their bench and the Celtics shooting over 50% from the field.

"'Game seven' is the best two words in sports and for us to be on the road in another hostile environment where we've had no success up to this point, we should relish the opportunity". Whether you want to blame it on James' flopping or the refs' inabilities to make accurate calls is up to you, though.

He also commented on his recovery routine and how it changes once the playoffs begin and the rest between games gets shorter.

Precocious wing Tatum shook off a slow start to score 15 points on 7-for-13 shooting with three rebounds and two assists.
