LeBron carries Cavs back to finals

The Cavs are 7-1 at home in the postseason while the Celtics are 9-0 at TD Garden

And so there James was one possession in the third quarter scoring in transition, then chasing down Terry Rozier to impolitely redirect his seeming open layup into the stands.

Tired? Sure. The 33-year-old James will play his 100th game of the season Sunday in Boston and leads the league in postseason minutes played. "I haven't won every elimination game, but I've had some really good games and I've had some subpar games as well". "But more importantly, just the work that I put into it". Jeff Green added 14 off the bench, Larry Nance had 10 and Kyle Korver and Jordan Clarkson chipped in six apiece as the Cavs reserves helped fill the void left by Love's early exit. "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". He also pulled down 11 rebounds and dished out nine assists.

One of the two was going down and headed home early.

Discussion after Game 5 was centered squarely on how LeBron James ran out of gas and how rookie Jason Tatum ran circles around the aging superstar.

For the second time this postseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers will experience the two greatest words in sports: Game 7. Can they finally make an appearance in Boston?

Jayson Tatum - who scored 27 - got Boston within seven with a slam dunk in the fourth quarter but three consecutive three-pointers from James saw out the victory and the Cavs' eighth straight win at the Quicken Loans Arena.

Japan economy shrinks for first time in 2 years
But consumer spending has remained stubbornly lacklustre, with companies staying stingy on wage hikes despite healthy profits. Nominal GDP was down 0.4% on quarter, missing expectations for a gain of 0.1% following the 0.1% gain three months earlier.


His numbers in elimination games are staggering and he not only lived up to them, he obliterated them.

End of quarter: Celtics 43, Cavs 39: Cavs somehow only down four heading into halftime.

"That guy amazes me every night", Hill said.

"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".

"We have an opportunity to play for a championship", James said. 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.

So much seems to favor the Celtics here, but it's so hard to bet against LeBron in a Game 7, especially when Boston is a young team lacking star talent (which isn't their own fault after the Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving injuries).

The Cleveland defense, which had been non-existent throughout the series, forced eight Boston turnovers in the first half and 13 overall for the game, leading to 11 points for Cleveland.
