Boston Celtics prepare for a "dogfight" against Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7

  • Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James roars in delight after nailing a three-pointer against the Boston Celtics

He carried Cleveland in this one, scoring 46 points - a career high for a potential elimination game - while adding 11 rebounds, nine assists, and three steals. But the Cavs' chances of winning decrease when their best player averages six turnovers a game and teammates don't pitch in. A short while later, James tossed in a pair of step-back fadeaway treys from the vicinity of Shaker Heights, and it was time for the Celtics to go home.

And he got another shot this series at the Celtics, a team against which perhaps more of his signature games - for both good and bad - have come than versus any other.

Brad Stevens surprised reporters by revealing his starting lineup after joking to the media prior to Game 5 that he only did it in the past because he hadn't been told he had an option.

James is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent this offseason, and it with each minute he has spent carrying this version of the Cavs, it has become seemingly more likely he will again depart Northeast Ohio. It's a 10-point advantage for Cleveland with under seven minutes to go. James tops Jordan in more categories, but the Bulls being a far better team plays into it as well.

Love went out with a head injury in the first quarter, forcing Cavs coach Tyronn Lue to juggle his rotations and keep James on the floor longer than he wanted to.

"I can't say that on camera".

The Celtics have two chances to go to their first Finals since 2010 - the a year ago a non-LeBron team represented the East.

Although Boston remains unbeaten at home in the playoffs, the Celtics know they can't afford to be complacent against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"That guy amazes me every night", Hill said. The Cavaliers made 15 turnovers compared to eight for the Celtics. LeBron hit a 3 to give the Cavs the lead, then Marcus Morris was called for an offensive foul.

Jayson Tatum is only 20 years old, and playing in his first year in the National Basketball Association, but Paul Pierce already sees his potential to become one of the greatest players to wear a Celtics jersey.

Trailing the Celtics 3-2 and facing elimination in the Eastern Conference finals, the Cavaliers triumphed in a bruising encounter on their home floor to knot the best-of-seven series at 3-3 and force game seven in Boston on Sunday.

Terry Rozier scored 28 points to lead the Celtics, who are trying to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

James scored 45 that day and the Cavs survived.

James' highlight-reel plays came in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, when he nailed a pair of step-back 3-pointers over the outstretched arms of Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum, the latter as the shot clock expired. "I look forward to seeing us respond on Friday night".
