Brad Stevens lauds LeBron James for 'special night'

Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland? Watch Celtics vs Cavs Online Free ESPN Live Streaming Game 6 Eastern Conference Finals

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.

"I think when you lose an All-Star like Kevin and our second go-to guy, pivotal part of what we try to do, and when he goes down and then you help your brother up, that's what they did", praised Coach Tyronn Lue.

During the second quarter the Cavs went on a 14-5 run.

Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-Boston 31 (Horford 9), Cleveland 44 (James 11).

"We know it is a challenge on their home floor", James said. James leads all players with 649 minutes played in the playoffs this year, and is one of only four players to log more than 600 minutes so far.

Cleveland may be without Kevin Love on Sunday after the forward left the court with suspected concussion following a collision with the Celtics' Jayson Tatum. But the Boston offense was a disaster in the second quarter as the Cavaliers outscored the Celtics 34-15 in the frame.

Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland?

And he wouldn't be denied an eighth straight journey to the NBA Finals. It was a 10-point game going into the fourth, and as the Celtics fought to gain traction, the Cavs kept them at arm's length.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers are among the top contenders - but where will James be playing next season?

"We're trying to knock off a group with a number of champions and a generational player", Boston coach Brad Stevens said before the game.

"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.
