Cavaliers' Kevin Love to Miss Game 7 vs. Celtics With a Concussion

The NBA Eastern Conference finals series heads to Boston for a do-or-die Game 7 on Sunday, May 27 (Monday, May 28 in Manila) after the Celtics missed the first of their two attempts to clinch a championship berth for the first time in 8 years.

Love played in just five minutes of the Cavs' Game 6 win over the Celtics on Friday before leaving the game following a collision with Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum.

James had team-highs in points (46), rebounds (11) and assists (9) in an extraordinary individual performance which piloted the Cavaliers to a 109-99 victory which levels the best-of-seven series at three wins each.

After several other media members confirmed the report, the Cavaliers made it official: Love is in the NBA's concussion protocol and can not play.

"I just got it like that", James said. Not only will one team get to move on to the NBA Finals, but either Al Horford or LeBron James will have their flawless Game 7 streak snapped.

He'll have to come up clutch once again when they face the Celtics in Boston for Game 7 this Sunday. "Nobody else has what he has on his shoulders playing the game", he said.

However, players are given the option of staying in the locker room during the national anthem , without facing the possibility of fines.

"I just felt someone fall into my leg, and my leg kind of went in", James said after the game, per James McMenamin of ESPN.

"I don't want to talk so much about [whether it's his last game in Cleveland], but I think just his performance was unbelievable", Kyle Korver said. And that's why Vegas views this game as a pretty even matchup, with the Celtics getting the slight home-court boost.

"We throw it all out", Lue said on Saturday. James is averaging 33.9 points, 8.9 rebounds and 8.8 assists and has had seven 40-point games and two-buzzer beaters. James said. "If I'd have told you at the beginning of the season we only needed one game to make the NBA Finals, we'd take it".

The Cavs relented to Irving's request and traded him to the Celtics last summer, but the All-Star point guard didn't play in this postseason after undergoing knee surgery. One thing is for certain: he will be rested.

If daytime sports television is any indication, we're going to be having the LeBron vs. Michael Jordan debate almost every day for the next several years, if not several decades. (10 points) as the Cavaliers fought off elimination for the second time in these playoffs. On the first one, Tatum came about as close as you can get to blocking the shot without doing so.

So now it's Game 7.
