LeBron James is New York Knicks only hope of winning Eastern Conference

Cavaliers’ Kevin Love to miss Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion Kevin Love out for Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion-like symptoms

ESPN says based on the overnights, Cavs-Celtics won the night not just on cable but across all of television. "This (Boston) team was undefeated in the postseason at home, and for us to be able to do this, and for me to be able to lead these guys, it's a treat". Expect to hear it many times during the NBA Finals. They were able to take care of the first part - and did it basically without Love, with former Celtics player Jeff Green filling in and having a strong game. The veteran scored 14 points on 10 shots in Game 6.

Jayson Tatum threw down an impressive dunk on LeBron James in the Boston Celtics' series finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I just love everything about the kid, the way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from", James starts.

"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."
He missed the entire 2015 Finals after suffering a dislocated shoulder earlier in the playoffs.

Green entered the starting lineup in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals following Love's injury in Game 6 and performed very well.

Boston made the mistake of using the three pointer as their main offensive weapon down the stretch but they finished a dismal seven-of-39 overall from beyond the arc.

The Cavs were stunned when Irving requested a trade after last year's Finals, saying he wanted to be "the focal point" of a team. The Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James will visit either the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets in Game 1.


"I think we've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years, and we started on September 25th", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

The three-time champion played all 48 minutes for just the fifth time in his playoff career and is 5-0 in those games.

He didn't want to play in the long shadow of LeBron James.

James led the Cavaliers in the first half with 17 points and 10 rebounds but they trailed for much of the half in front of a crowd of 18,600 at the Boston Garden.

"No one person has ever shouldered more and gotten his team to the finals", National Basketball Association commentator Jeff Van Gundy said.

LeBron James, of course, is the biggest reason why Cleveland came back from a 3-2 series deficit.
