LeBron James Muscled Cleveland Into The NBA Finals Yet Again

LeBron James Single Handedly Muscled Cleveland Into The NBA Finals Yet Again

Boston shot just nine-from-35 from beyond the arc at the TD Garden, leaving the Celtics with too much to do during a dramatic elimination showdown as 33-year-old James booked his place in the National Basketball Association finals for the eighth consecutive season.

The excitement of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier will mean brighter nights ahead for Celtics fans, but they dropped their first home game (10-1) of the playoffs and now James heads to The Finals for an incredible eighth straight season. For the better part of the last calendar year, the Cavs' franchise has experienced no shortage of ups and downs - slow climbs and faster falls - and yet James and Co. still find themselves in the same place they started this ride last June, en route to a fourth straight NBA Finals. James said Friday night after his seventh 40-point game in 17 outings in this postseason. Boston went six minutes while mustering just one field goal - a Marcus Morris second-chance fadeaway - and the Cavaliers put together a little burst to pull within two with under three minutes to play in the half. They barely survived a seven-game series in the first round against the Indiana Pacers, winning four games by a combined 14 points. In Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern final, he went for 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists to keep the Miami Heat alive before they won Game 7 back home.

"We've been counted out for a long time this season", James said postgame on ESPN.

The Cavaliers will face the victor of Monday's Game 7 matchup in the West between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. The Rockets host the seventh game of the West finals on Monday night. I just go out and play my game. I'm the wrong guy to ask. He called James' Finals streak "ridiculous", especially considering the pressure and scrutiny James is under. "We are going to try to get better throughout the series", he said. They've rightfully earned their status as favorite for Game 7, if for no other reason than their impressive 10-0 record at home in the postseason.

Since then, outbreaks have occurred nearly every year in Bangladesh, and twice before in the Indian state of West Bengal. The Bihar government issued Nipah virus alert on Saturday, asking people to take precautions, an official said .

It was the fifth time in James' postseason career that he played all 48 minutes in what was his 235th playoff game.

Tatum roared and chest bumped James afterwards, leading James to scowl at Tatum for several seconds at the Celtics rookie ran back down the court. Twice he failed to reach 10 points against the Cavs, and it's not a coincidence that the Celtics lost both of those games. "It's the moment. I mean, I give everything to this game", Green said.

Horford, who shot 7-of-12 from the floor with 17 points, put Boston up 28-18 with a sensational alley-oop dunk that was expertly set up by point guard Terry Rozier. "It's just so intense in the playoffs and getting to the Finals and now the Finals, I don't think - and I know he doesn't - I don't think even our guys are talking (about anything other than) what's in front of them".
