Celtics Ready For A Game 7 Battle Against Cavaliers

Celtics Ready For A Game 7 Battle Against Cavaliers

With a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night, the Cavs forced just that and will now face the Celtics in a winner-takes-all game in Boston on Sunday.

The Cavaliers posted an update on Love's condition Saturday, saying he was evaluated prior to the team's flight to Boston and was reportedly experiencing concussion symptoms.

LeBron James and the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers won't get any sympathy from the Celtics when they return to Boston for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. But other than a few breaks here and there, James rarely leaves the game.

The Celtics shot just 36.5 percent from the floor in Game 5, but they fired off 85 shots - 11 more than the Cavaliers did.

"Best player in the game", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of James.

"As soon as I leave here and head home to Akron I'll start to prepare", LeBron said.

This series, in which home court has meant everything, will have a fitting conclusion Sunday at TD Garden, where the Celtics are 10-0 this postseason. In fact, LeBron has received his fair share of criticism in the past for either missing key shots or passing them up, when it counted most. In Game 6, he was 3-for-10 shooting with a number of the misses being attempts at the rim or relatively open perimeter looks. "He's a very, very, very good player already and he definitely, at this pace, can become a great player". The Celtics kept in competitive but this was one of those nights where LeBron was not going to be denied, chasing down blocks, knocking down contested 3s from a half-dozen steps behind the 3-point line. Tristan Thompson didn't make much of an offensive impact, but anchored the team defense that held Boston's frontcourt of Al Horford and Aron Baynes to six points.

James was getting rebounds, handing out assists, getting steals, and even had a chasedown block.

"At the end of the day you've got to make your own history", Jaylen Brown said. And they can thank some of their youngest players for helping them get this far.

On a night Tatum slipped past Magic Johnson and Wilt Chamberlain to become only the sixth rookie in National Basketball Association history to score 300 postseason points, he put his team in position to end James' reign of East supremacy. "No concerns. You've got to be ready to play now". "That's no excuse, so we're looking forward to it". "We know it's challenging".

He had a 46-point, 12-rebound outing and a 45-point Game 7 against IN in games where he didn't make a buzzer-beater.
