LeBron James’ 46-point game stuns Boston, forces game seven

LeBron James’ 46-point game stuns Boston, forces game seven

"There's something different about LeBron, period", Cleveland forward Larry Nance Jr. said after James scored 46 with 11 rebounds and nine assists on Friday night to send the series to a decisive seventh game. LeBron James led the way with a monster game of 46 points to go with 11 rebounds and nine assists, George Hill added a series-high 20 points while Jeff Green chipped in with 14 points off the bench.

When LeBron James fell to the floor in agony midway through the fourth quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics, it was clear that he wasn't acting or flopping. And, like everything else he's been part of, his numbers are absurd, with averages of 34.9 points, eight rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

Like many of his teammates, Green has been up and down throughout the postseason - getting off to a slow start against IN, netting double-figures IN three of the four games against Toronto and posting a quiet series against Boston before Friday night's performance.

In many ways, the Cavaliers have gone as Korver has gone in the 2018 postseason - and they'll need the veteran sharpshooter at the top of his game tonight. Kevin Love has been the team's second best scorer but left the game after just five minutes thanks to a head clash with the Celtics' Jayson Tatum and he has officially been ruled out for Sunday with concussion. His team has reached the NBA Finals seven consecutive years, and he has won three rings in that time.

Moments before the Cavs sent a news release updating Love's status, coach Tyronn Lue held a confusing teleconference during which he said the 29-year-old was still being evaluated and there was a possibility he could play.

"I just try to put myself in the best possible shape each and every year to be able to go for the long haul", James said.

White House divided on Yanny Laurel debate
"Another user tweeted", When you hear both Yanny and Laurel, but your friends pressure you into choosing one or the other. Squidjeep said: "These videos do well on the internet because it's really cool to see how people's brains work".

It is not the first time Love has dealt with concussions, having missed a game in last season's National Basketball Association finals due to the ailment, while also experiencing the issue in March.

Even if the Rockets are playing stellar basketball in Game 7, the Warriors will still be seen as the favorite due to their track record.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are fighting for their playoff lives in Game 6 against the Boston Celtics.

"I didn't see him coming, it was bad", Tatum said. Game 6 was just the second time Horford has been limited to single-digit scoring this postseason. As soon as I get home, I'll start my treatment. "I didn't really have one-on-one position, so they did a good job doubling me and making it hard".

It would take a very serious injury to take LeBron off the court facing elimination in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. You've got to be able to get down and dirty. The Celtics know that they can come together and beat James at his best, but they need each and every player to do it. The Celtics took just 74 shots, while the Cavs put up 87.
