LeBron James Forces G7 With HISTORIC Performance

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

He remains the best player in the game. It's safe to expect Game 7 to feature a raucous home crowd for the Celtics. He has almost single-handedly kept the Cleveland Cavaliers alive in the postseason against the Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Boston Celtics.

By one measurement, 2017-18 has been as arduous of a season as James has ever had: Sunday marks his 100th game played between the regular season and playoffs, tying for the most he's ever played with his 2010-11 season with the Miami Heat. The former Celtic finished 4-of-10 from the floor and 5-of-5 from the stripe, adding three boards and a pair of blocked shots. It didn't quite go down, but this group is resilient. In a sense, the Celtics have relied on their home crowd to make up for the losses of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward due to injury.

LeBron James isn't going down without a fight.

There are few things in sports like an NBA Game 7.

In total, James has six elimination games with at least 40 points and five games with a triple double.

Between now and Sunday, the three-time National Basketball Association champion will also be recovering from a sore lower right leg.

Despite that advantage, heading into a winner-take-all game with LeBron James is still going to be a massive challenge for Brad Stevens' young team. "I felt some pain throughout my entire right side of my ankle into my leg". "There's not many like you, I tell you". Love called his Game 7 availability a "toss-up" after the game, but that's probably even being optimistic. Much has been made said about LeBron late-game heroics, but the media hasn't always been this kind. James was noticeably affected, but stayed on the court to make sure the game didn't get away from them. Stevens said the team doctors checked on him "and he's great". "Tremendous. I thought the second was wasn't quite as contested maybe as the first one". They will need to rebound.

No foul was called on the play on Tatum, who ran straight into Love. "I have a knot on the back of my head and he didn't return. I wish the best for Kevin Love because he's a great player".




Tatum has been an absolute stud for the Celtics.

Love has not been placed in concussion protocol, but that could change if he has an onset of symptoms - headaches, dizziness, sensitivity to light - in the hours ahead. Losing Love would be a blow for Cleveland on the road.

"We were short on timeouts and I was about to take one", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of incident. They're 10-0 on their home floor, and they've been very successful against us, obviously, at home. "Kevin left the game". "You've got to put guys in the game to give them an opportunity to be successful". They played for Kevin.

Two stats plagued the Celtics' offense.

. As soon as I get home, I'll start my treatment.

The Cavaliers also dominated the offensive glass, grabbing 15 offensive rebounds.

LeBron's a different dude these days and he'll be ready to rumble with an eighth-straight trip to the NBA Finals riding on tonight. This journey, no matter how Game 7 unfolds, has been unlike any of his others. George Hill added a playoff-high 20 points for the Cavs. We're about to get two in the next two days.

Terry Rozier paced the Celtics with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown had 27. The Celtics can withstand a single-man effort from James. In Game 7 James went for 37 and 12 boards. "I know what I'm capable of doing". Marcus Smart thinks he knows exactly what his team needs to do in order to prevail. "You got to be able to get down and get dirty".
