The four-time league MVP scored 35 factors with 15 rebounds and 9 assists on Sunday night time, main the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 87-79 win over the Celtics and eliminating Boston from the Japanese Convention finals within the decisive seventh sport. 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.
The last time James faced an elimination game in Game 6 of a conference final series against Boston? And you've got to be able to combat that and be just as solid and just as aggressive on the offensive end. And as another free-agency decision looms and speculation swirls, all that matters for now is the 48 minutes to follow.

"It's not going to be pretty", Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. Friday he scored 20 points, his most of the postseason, on 7-of-12 shooting. "I haven't always been successful, obviously".
Moments later, James drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to finally put away the young Celtics, who will now feel the vast pressure of trying to hold off the three-time champion. That took the Cavs from being behind 25-20 to a 46-37 lead. 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.
The Cavs didn't miss Love much, after he banged heads with Tatum in the first quarter and was ruled out for the night at halftime.
