James delivers epic Game 7 as Cavs reach National Basketball Association finals

James delivers epic Game 7 as Cavs reach National Basketball Association finals

The next - and final - iteration of the Cavs' still ongoing campaign, however, isn't far behind. "I guess this is the last chapter for our team in this season". The last time an NBA Finals did not feature James was in 2010.

LeBron James had just clinched his eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals, but before celebrating in the quiet TD Garden, he scanned the parquet floor. "That never really happened to me as a player, so I'm not sure I understand, but I could see it in their eyes all year when Gordon was out".

Meanwhile, Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are also deadlocked after six matches - but which outfit are favourites to be crowned NBA Champions. At some point in July - and following the departure of general manager David Griffin - James' co-star, Kyrie Irving, asked for a trade, a request the Cavs ultimately acquiesced when they sent him to the Celtics in exchange for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick. Boston led 43-39 at the half.

Now, the only question is who the Cavaliers will play for a chance at their second title in three years: The Rockets host Game 7 of the Western Conference finals against Golden State on Monday night, and the victor will host the opener of the NBA Finals on Thursday. Guard George Hill netted a quiet 20 points in Game 6 on 7-of-12 shooting.

"I think his composure (is impressive), he plays above his age", LeBron said of Tatum. He knows the line is way off and says one team "comfortably" covers the spread.

"This season has been something else".

LeBron James’ 46-point game stuns Boston, forces game seven
It would take a very serious injury to take LeBron off the court facing elimination in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals . The Celtics know that they can come together and beat James at his best, but they need each and every player to do it.

"We can enjoy one without tearing down one", Bryant tweeted after Game 7 on Sunday night. "I really can't believe it, to be honest with you".

"Our goal going into the series was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible and try to be as good as we can on everybody else", Stevens said.

The Cavs started 29 different lineups in the regular season and might now start their fifth different playoff lineup Sunday with Love out.

Jayson Tatum paced the Celtic attack with 24 points as Boston suffered their only loss in 11 playoff home games. Boston will be one of, if not the favorite to win the Eastern Conference next season.

The biggest star in the National Basketball Association, the greatest player of this generation, one of the five best players in history had something he needed to say to the 20-year-old rookie.
