LeBron scores 46 against Celtics as Cavs force Game 7 in Boston

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

If anyone can lift these Cavs to a fourth straight finals trip, it is James, statistically the greatest player ever in elimination games and subjectively simply the greatest player ever.

Up Next - After dropping Boston to hold serve in Game 6 at The Q, the Wine & Gold travel to Beantown for Game 7 on Sunday night - 8:30 E.T. The Cavaliers are 4-2 all-time in Game 7s in franchise history - splitting two of those contests with the Celtics, advancing in 1992 and falling in 2008.

In what could be his final game in Cleveland, James played 46 minutes and erupted for 46 points on 17-for-33 shooting.

Elite in all facets of the game, James controlled the tempo and stepped up defensively to stop Boston's young, athletic line-up at TD Garden.

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. Forwards Jeff Green (14 points, three rebounds, two assists, two blocks) and Larry Nance Jr.

LeBron James said he needed help if the Cavaliers were going to defeat the Boston Celtics and fight off elimination. Seventeen of those points came in the second quarter, when he made his first three 3-pointers of the game and attempted his first six free throws.

3-Point Goals: 12-28, .429 (Rozier 6-10, Morris 2-3, Brown 2-5, Tatum 1-3, Smart 1-4, Baynes 0-1, Horford 0-2). Cleveland finished with a 44-31 advantage in rebounding, including 15-5 on the offensive boards, and went 18-of-22 at the stripe. "I promise", he said, drawing laughs from media members.

"I thought the best was when he always put us out". "The end of the first and the end of the third (quarters) killed us".

Point guard George Hill turned in his most aggressive and effective game of the series, scoring 20 points on 7-for-12 shooting with a ideal 6-for-6 mark from the free-throw line to go with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

"This troupe's resilient", Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters post-game."We'll be ready to go on Sunday". And it took the king playing all 48 minutes to get him there.

James often says the same thing, "staying in the moment". "We just didn't do it enough to get over that hump", C's guard Jaylen Brown said after the loss. They still can surrender open shots everywhere, a flaw that seems fatal against the 3-point happy Rockets or Warriors.

The Cavaliers led by as many as 16 in the third quarter before Boston was able to cut it to 10 at the end of the frame on a Terry Rozier three.

With six minutes left on the clock, the Celtics were ahead at 72-71 - but the Cavs scored 15 of the next 17 points to pull ahead and secure the win. "We can't just rely on being at home for an excuse that it's going to be easy". He went to the locker room and was eventually ruled out of the game.
