Said James, who could be playing his final game in his second stint with the Cavaliers: "Just go out and trust what you've built on all year".

"Then I'm looking at what LeBron James has done and his body of work". Expect to hear it many times during the NBA Finals. (LeBron) played all 82 games in his 15th season. Tatum dunked on James and buried a three, giving the Celtics a tenuous one-point advantage which Green promptly erased with a corner 3-pointer.

James scored a game-high 35 points, and had 15 rebounds and nine assists in the win.

Love has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol, but traveled with the team to Boston and is expected to attend the game.


"But to make it this far has shown him that there is something special in Cleveland, and he is more likely to stay with the team after this season is over whether they win the championship or not."

After the Cavaliers stunned the Boston Celtics in Game 7 on Sunday night, the Warriors did the same to the Houston Rockets one night later, rallying from an 11-point halftime deficit to claim the 101-92 win and set up another chapter in the NBA's best rivalry.

Throughout the season we saw superstars shoulder the load carry their team, deliver game winners and come through when it counted.

"It's tough, Kevin wanted to play, to be in a Game 7 situation like this in the Eastern Conference finals, being an All-Star, being our second-best player, and he just wasn't able to go".


James' struggles were at the forefront, as he averaged 23.2 points and 4.8 turnovers while shooting 24.4 percent from 3-point range during that time, and he knew he had to get his act together. Often considered a career underachiever, Green showed up big in the place of the injured Kevin Love, scoring 19 points and pulling down eight rebounds.

LeBron James has not missed the NBA Finals since 2010. "Every time before a game, we do our "Wakanda Forever" handshake".

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, "I thought the biggest moment of the game was when we couldn't extend the lead in the second quarter".

"As we talked about all year, tomorrow night is not going to be flawless".


James dropped 17 points and went 6-of-12 from the field in the first half, scoring almost half of Clevelands first half points.
