Cavaliers Kevin Love ruled out for Game 7 against Celtics

Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes competes for a rebound against Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson during the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals Wednesday

The Heat dispensed of Boston in Game 7 back in Miami two days later, and two weeks later, James finally won a championship, with the Heat knocking off Oklahoma City in five games.

The Cavaliers and Celtics are tied in the Eastern Conference Finals 3-3.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue did not know if he would have his second-best player for the season's biggest game as the Cavs try to win their fourth straight conference title. We got one of those with a trip to the NBA Finals on the line Sunday night. Can they finally make an appearance in Boston? "All of them were very effective for them last night".

The Celtics were still within seven in the final three minutes before James made consecutive 3-pointers, punctuating the second by pounding his chest with both fists and screaming along with 20,562 others.

The Cavaliers won games three and four with their forward Tristan Thompson dominating the Celtics, but he did not have the same impact on Wednesday with Baynes paired up with Horford around the basket.

But that 10-0 record and those home-road splits mean little to the Celtics.

Fulham back in Premier League after win over Aston Villa
But let's not forget we are Aston Villa , a proud club, a big club. "People gave us stick but football won today". I'm so exhausted right now I don't feel my legs "We are really happy and proud".

"I think they responded exceptionally well", he said to reporters. "It'll be around-the-clock treatment, and we'll see what happens".

Here's what we learned from this one. "That's all we're anxious about".

"Obviously they have a package of Love plays that they go to on offense, so if they end up doing more stuff with LeBron (James), I thought Hill and Clarkson were good off pick-and-rolls (Friday) night", Stevens said. We had an opportunity to come home and take a lead, but we didn't.

"[It's going to be] Chaotic". I haven't always played great in my career. "Two teams have to come out and play".

"The fun thing for us is that we played well", Celtics center Aron Baynes said on the night he moved back into the starting lineup. We understand that. We understand the blueprint to win. Boston quickly closed the gap in the second half and had an 11-point lead of their own within a minute of the fourth quarter.

Having the fans on their side is nice and all, but what matters is how the Celtics play. It's a Game 7. You can't go out and try to look pretty. You got to be able to get down and get dirty.

"Understanding the situation and understanding the moment that you're in", he added. LeBron James, 33, not only played them all; he led the National Basketball Association in minutes played in the regular season.

"It's about just winning the game now". It's one more chance to rise to the occasion and prove their doubters wrong, a chance for a team that everyone ruled out a month ago to advance to the NBA's biggest stage.
