Tyronn Lue: LeBron James Will Be Great in Game 6

  • As Game 3 showed, a 2-0 series hole often brings out the best in LeBron's Cavs

LeBron James put on an absolute show in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics to even the series at 3-3 and force a Game 7.

James became the 13th athlete in the four major USA professional sports - the NBA, NHL, MLB and National Football League - to make it to eight straight championship series, joining seven Montreal Canadiens players and five former Celtics, according to data compiled by ESPN Stats & Information.

The Celtics had been a spotless 10-0 this postseason at TD Garden before James & Co. delivered a lone season-ending blemish.

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.

Within the first shut sport of the collection - and the lowest-scoring - James performed all 48 minutes and had 12 of his factors within the fourth quarter for his sixth straight Recreation 7 win.

Rozier dropped 28 points and Jaylen Brown fired27 for the Celtics, who led by 5 at the end of a spirited first quarter before James totally took over.

It also happens that James left Cleveland following that loss to the Celtics and chances are James will once again be leaving if the Celtics manage to close out this series. Later on, Terry Rozier rolled his ankle pretty badly, but he was able to play through the pain. It was the best performance in an elimination game of LeBron's career.

"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.

By the midway point of the second quarter, the Celtics had built up a 12-point lead, and were threatening to run away with the game before halftime.

"The love of the game", James said, explaining his reaction. "Best player in the game, special night tonight".




The Cavaliers will face the victor of Monday's Game 7 matchup in the West between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets.

Horford said of James' overall performance, "It's one of those things that I've got to tip my hat off to him".

Still down four points with almost seven minutes left in the game, Tatum chose to take things into his own hands.

"Great defense by (Jayson) Tatum, great shots by LeBron", Stevens said.

"You've got to be mentally tough", coach Tyronn Lue said before the game.

He needed to do it with out Kevin Love - Cleveland's exclusively different all-star - who sustained a concussion in Recreation 6 and was changed within the lineup by Jeff Inexperienced. "If you want to win, that's what it takes".

"Just for good measure, he added a three-point play and then was taken out of the game to a rousing ovation and chants of "Cavs in 7!"

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

Continuing the series' freaky home/road differences, George Hill gave the Cavs an injection of playmaking.
