Lebron takes Cavaliers to 4th NBA Finals in a row

  • Las Vegas has some historically high expectations for Le Bron James in Game 7. More

Minutes out of 48 James was on court against Boston in Game 7. And again he still had 35, 15 and nine. "It's something that you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me".

"The postseason has been a lot of fun, from the first game to today", Tatum said.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", said Lue.

This is certainly not the end for these Celtics, however.

"The Warriors make you pay the price for making mistakes", said former coach and player Jackson. He's now done so in five of the last seven C's playoff runs. "We've been counted out a long time this season".

"But I just reset my mindset and said "OK, this is the season and let's try to make the most of it". "It's just so intense in the playoffs and getting to the Finals and now the Finals, I don't think - and I know he doesn't - I don't think even our guys are talking (about anything other than) what's in front of them". With 37 seconds left, James scored the final points of the quarter when he nailed a shot from beyond the arc, and the Cavs entered the fourth quarter up 59-56. That helped the Cavs rally and cut the deficit to 43-39 at the half. Boston lost its lead and trailed heading into the final 12 minutes, 59-56. You never look forward to facing LeBron but you definitely fear him in a close game as the clock is melting away. James was 4-8, the rest of the team was 1-7. He hit a 3l and actually threw down a facial dunk on the King, complete with a cheap chest bump to follow.

Note: NBA FINALS analysts Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson will be available on a media conference call tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. ET to discuss the event.

Tatum finished with 351 total points in 19 playoff appearances.

Stanley Cup fever: Vegas ditches capital letters on Twitter
Wilson delivered a blindside hit on Jonathan Marchessault with the puck nowhere near the Vegas centre in the immediate aftermath. Generally speaking, both teams were fairly sloppy, which contributed to the 10-goal output.

"It's unbelievable", Gilbert said after the game. "It's ridiculous and he does it with the pressure and scrutiny".

Is James the greatest American sports story of this generation?

It will be interesting to see if the Cavaliers can somehow be competitive in the finals. But he owns the heart of a champion and is almost impossible to knock out.

Once the buzzer sounded and the 101-92 Game 7 win over Houston was official, the Warriors could exhale. Boston had been unbeatable at home during the postseason – 10-0 at the Garden with three convincing double-digit victories against the Cavs – and Cleveland has not played well in Boston.

At the podium, James said he hadn't processed the fact he is going back to the Finals. James and Jordan have topped 500 points a high of eight times each.

The Cavaliers spent most of the third quarter, too, trying to fully overcome that 12-point hole they had fallen into in the first half - and used their defense to do it.

Replace James with another superstar and it is very possible, perhaps even likely that Boston would have won this battle.
