But James and the Cavs live to fight for another day following their 109-99 Game 6 win which has us at a winner-take-all Game 7 in Boston on Sunday.

James, who has the highest scoring average in elimination games in National Basketball Association history at 34.1 points per game, has won his past five Game 7s, including the first round this season against the Indiana Pacers.

"'Game seven' is the best two words in sports and for us to be on the road in another hostile environment where we've had no success up to this point, we should relish the opportunity".

LeBron James produced another epic playoff performance Friday as the Cleveland Cavaliers stayed alive in the National Basketball Association playoffs with a 109-99 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Cleveland led by as many as 16 in the third quarter, but the advantage was down to seven with 2:47 to play when James unleased back-to-back three-pointers and converted a layup to push the Cavs lead back to 109-96. But for now, let's dive in to Game 6 for a few takeaways.

Down 3-2 to the Boston Celtics and facing elimination, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed to show up and put forth a strong effort in front of their home crowd on Friday night.

James hobbled around but stayed in the game, and scored 14 points in the fourth.

"We were on that one and our trainers were on that one in the huddle right after", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. He remains as among the best, if not the best, players in the game, and his presence in the Cavs' fold is undoubtedly what holds together a team filled with malfunctioning parts. He scored the Cavs' opening basket and never looked back, finishing with 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals. Overall, the Cavs shot 47.1 percent from the field, including 39.1 percent from beyond the arc.

The Celtics' All-Star forward Al Horford was also unusually quiet with just six points while guard Terry Rozier had 28 and Jaylen Brown 27 points. Jayson Tatum added 15 points while Marcus Smart and Marcus Morris both ended up with 10. Hill is shooting just 31 percent and averaging 5.0 points in the three losses in Boston this series.

- The Celtics are 23-8all-time in Game 7s and 20-4 at home.
