LeBron James and the Cavaliers win Game 6 against Celtics, 109-99

LeBron James: No issues with leg, focused on resting up for Game 7

The next year, after winning a Game 7 over the Pacers in Miami with 32 points, eight rebounds and four assists on 15-of-16 shooting at the free throw line, James faced elimination at home against the Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Love is Cleveland's most reliable scoring option after LeBron James, who scored 46 points in another tour-de-force performance in Game 6 - possibly his last game with the Cavs.

The NBA Eastern Conference finals series heads to Boston for a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday, May 27 (Monday, May 28 in Manila) after the Celtics missed the first of their two attempts to clinch a championship berth for the first time in 8 years. Over those seven games, LeBron has averaged 38.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 9.1 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.6 blocks in 44.1 minutes, while shooting 54.5% from the field and 47.6% from beyond the arc.

Ideally, the baby arrives between tonight's Game 7 and the start of the NBA Finals in either Houston or Oakland on Thursday. After he and Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum collided about five minutes into the Cavs' Game 6 win, forcing the big man to spend the rest of the game in the locker room.

It is the stuff of legend and champions as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers said on Friday that they would not be going quietly into the National Basketball Association playoffs elimination night.

The King gave the sold-out crowd at The Q quite a scare in the fourth quarter, hitting the deck grasping his right knee after a collision with Larry Nance Jr. "Our team is built on me being out on the floor to be able to make plays not only for myself but to make plays for others".

After Game 6, LeBron has now won more than twice as many elimination games as Jordan, while also outscoring Jordan in the process.

Speaking at the time, she said: 'The goal of Boring Company is to alleviate soul-destroying traffic and augment public transit'. Still, questions about the test-tunnel project largely dominated the meeting on Thursday night.

"I don't want to talk so much about [whether it's his last game in Cleveland], but I think just his performance was unbelievable", Kyle Korver said.

One last hurdle was added Saturday when the Cavs ruled Kevin Love out for Sunday with concussion-like symptoms.

The key is going to be making sure the Cavaliers do not get another advantage outside of James, and the Celtics get an advantage at every other position. His team has reached the NBA Finals seven consecutive years, and he has won three rings in that time.

The Celtics know they can fight, and they know they can fight for their playoff lives at home.

So far this series, Love has (surprisingly) played much better in TD Garden than he has in Quicken Loans Arena.

"If you were watching the game, you'd know I was getting doubled as soon as I caught the ball", Horford said. But with Love done for the night, the Cavs closed ranks, got a big game from their bench and from point guard George Hill, who had 20 points and only one turnover. "It's not going to be pretty", said Marcus Smart. "You've got to find a way, whatever it takes". He didn't come back, and guys got together and they played.
