  • LeBron’s son can’t even believe how good his dad is right now

Stevens' Boston Celtics lost Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-99 on Friday night.

LeBron James posted his third 40-point game of the series and seventh of the 2018 postseason - exploding for 46 points on 17-for-33 shooting, including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc and 7-of-11 from the stripe, leading both teams with 11 boards and nine assists to go with three steals and a nasty chase-down block of Terry Rozier.

As what can be seen on the figure above, James is easily smoking the numbers his predecessors have put up in their own great playoff runs during their respective 15th seasons in the National Basketball Association. "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7".

I just have no idea if the other Cavs can deliver a passing grade in Boston.

George Hill enjoyed his best game of the series for the Cavaliers with 20 points, while reserve Jeff Green chipped in 14 and Larry Nance Jr hit for 10 points. ESPN is included in the Hulu Live TV package so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Cavs Celtics Game 6 battle online. LeBron with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists. "Right around the trade deadline, no matter if we made a trade or not at that point in time, I kind of just switched my mindset on saying, 'Let's get this most out of this season I can.' I'm determined to get the most".

Meanwhile, rookie Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to lead the Celtics Sunday evening.

It was also James' sixth straight win in a Game 7, improving him to 6-2 all-time in Game 7.

A chance to renew the intrigue in " Marseille " was on the 80th minute, however, Mitroglou, winning the aerial duel with Godin that hit the post.

However, now that the end of the season is near, it's even more pertinent to brood on what a Cleveland loss prior to making the NBA Finals would mean for LeBron's future.

The King will now compete for the title for the eighth straight year as he continues his dominance in the east. Multiple games now in TD Garden, held them under 100, three games in the 80s - but he still scored 35. James did not run back down the court, resting up while Green drew a foul at the other end and made one free throw to give the Cavaliers their biggest lead of the game.

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

James drained a pair back-to-back threes in the final 2:15, including one as the shot clock sounded to put Cleveland up 107-96 with 1:40 left.

"They have been very successful against us at home, but we love challenges and this is a great opportunity". Tatum finished with 15 but was largely a nonentity during the first half.

"The second quarter definitely killed us", Rozier said of Cleveland's 34-18 advantage. A CliffsNotes version of the first quarter: Smith clanked a jumper off the side of the backboard, Love clunked heads with Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown (15 points) nearly outscored Cleveland by himself as Boston opened a 25-20 lead.
