LeBron James Forces G7 With HISTORIC Performance

Similar to Friday night, LeBron brilliantly secured the Heat a spot in the NBA Finals and prompted many to dub it the greatest game of his career.

After the first quarter, the Cavs were down 25-20. That's what the Detroit Pistons sometimes did to teams back then. "Had a chance there to cut it to 4 on a shot". It didn't quite go down, but this group is resilient. "I just think defensively being able to switch and guard multiple positions, that's huge for us". Eliminating LeBron James from a playoff series isn't for the faint of heart.

The 33-year-old's next challenge: finding a way to beat the Celtics, who have played at another level on their home floor.

Backed by a sea of towel-waving fans wearing white "Cleveland Whatever It Takes" T-shirts, James did just that to push the series to Boston, where he has had some of his biggest moments on the renowned parquet floor.

After a big night in Game 1 - finishing with 21 points on 7-for-12 shooting - the Cavs have held him in check, averaging 10.8 points on 36 percent shooting over the next five contests.

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

Cleveland may be without Kevin Love on Sunday after the forward left the court with suspected concussion following a collision with the Celtics' Jayson Tatum. "There's not many like you, I tell you. I feel like anybody else would feel playing 100 games in a season". "I learned the hard way yet again in the first round why it's such a bad idea to bet against LeBron James during his annual march to the Finals".

James scored 46 points in Friday's victory, his latest jaw-dropping performance in what has been perhaps the greatest postseason of the superstar's storied career. This time, it was James going for 32 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in over 40 minutes.

"I felt some pain throughout my entire right side of my ankle into my leg", he said. "Two teams have to come out and play".

The Cavaliers' lineup is in limbo. The problem? They may have to try and do so without Kevin Love. He was helped off and walked to the bench unsteadily before heading to the locker room for further treatment and evaluation.

"As soon as I leave here, I'll start to prepare", James said after Game 6. I'm betting on Celtics head coach Brad Stevens and his squad here to advance to the NBA Finals.

With Love out, expect the Cavaliers to play with a smaller, yet quicker lineup.

Tatum has been an absolute stud for the Celtics. Losing Love would be a blow for Cleveland on the road.

TNT analyst and NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley is picking Boston: "It was nice of Ty Lue to play Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., and Jeff Green". They need to bring out something positive from every single player, and on both ends.

Either way, the Cavs will have to get the win if they want to continue their 2017-18 season.

Game two is the game the Celtics can look to, and be confident in their ability no matter what James does. He finished with four assists, six points, and nine rebounds.

"We have a lot of confidence", Horford said.

Need More winners against the spread?

The Cavaliers also dominated the offensive glass, grabbing 15 offensive rebounds. "I'll be better Sunday". 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've got to try to be the first". The Celtics can withstand a single-man effort from James. They did that with Jaylen Brown limited to 16 minutes and 2 points by a hamstring injury. Boston was efficient, they just didn't shoot the ball enough.

"It's not going to be pretty", Smart said. "I know what I'm capable of doing". But can the Celtics stop James and the Cavs tonight? "You've got to find a way, whatever it takes". "We got to be ready to come up with our nose bloodied, we got to be ready to come out with our mouth bloodied, we have to be coming out ready to fight".
