Pressure’s on James, Cavaliers in Game 6 vs. Celtics

Boston Celtics Pride: The growing legend of Jayson Tatum

Boston Celtics Pride: The growing legend of Jayson Tatum

Game 7 is on.

James readily dismissed the notion though in his turn to talk.

James and the Cavaliers threw a mighty punch Friday night, with LeBron's 46 points leading Cleveland to a 109-99 win to force Sunday's winner-takes-all clash. It was his seventh 40-point performance of the 2018 playoffs, tying Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan (1989) for second-most 40-point games in a single post-season behind the eight of Jerry West in 1965.

Love went out with a head injury in the first quarter, forcing Cavs coach Tyronn Lue to juggle his rotations and keep James on the floor longer than he wanted to. "Championship pedigree, giving it his all". We needed that, especially when Kevin (Love) went down. "He delivered. He carried us home as usual". He will either earn an eighth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals, or he will walk off defeated as he did in 2010. The Celtics are now a ideal 10-0 at home and just 1-6 on the road. In Game 7 James went for 37 and 12 boards.

"I can't say that on camera. I know what I'm capable of and I'm going to trust everything I put into it".

On Friday, he was more forthcoming: Boston's lineup will be Baynes, Al Horford, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier, with Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart likely the first two off the bench.

If the first five games of the Eastern Conference Finals are any indication, the Game 6 result isn't hard to predict.

A "third party" recommended Cohen to Novartis, Jimenez said, declining to identify that person. Novartis should have done more due diligence, he said.

The Celtics made a late push, but James snuffed it out with massive back-to- back three-pointers in the final two minutes. "Luckily, I was able to finish the game". "It's a feeling you can't explain".

Timing can be a odd thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010.

The series is tied at 3-3 and Cleveland must win in Boston on Sunday to progress to the finals.

"We've still got to come out aggressive and play Celtics basketball", he said. He also provided another big body to contest LeBron James if the Cavaliers superstar got around the paint. Love ended up tumbling to the floor on the play, and he stayed down holding his head until play was stopped. I felt some pain throughout the entire right side of my leg in my ankle and my leg.

But not before one more Game 7 in a building that has seen the best and worst of him throughout his career. He's been Boston's top shot creator on isolation plays, and continues to add new moves to do his work inside the paint, or to wiggle free beyond the arc.

After saying it would have taken a very serious injury for him to exit, then looking for some wood to knock on, James added, "I wasn't coming out". That's just how dominant James has been this season, which is his 15th in the league.
