Cavs hold off Celtics in Game 7

Kyrie Irving

This scoring season is now 9 all-time in playoffs history, eclipsed only by Michael Jordan (4 times: 36.7, 35.1, 34.8 and 34.5 PPG), Wilt Chamberlain (once: 35 PPG), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (once: 34.6 PPG) and... Preference varies greatly between fans, while some still pick the centrist route and say there's no simple way to compare across eras. "You just have to have ideal intentions", Stevens said Saturday. The Celtics want to avoid this becoming an inevitable game of runs, because they can get the stability that will ensure James alone will not be enough to destroy this game. And they'll get Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back next season. The Celtics then slipped into a collective ice age just as LeBron James (35) and Jeff Green (19) were heating up.

In the face of a strengthening Cavaliers attack, the Celtics seems to retreat. Upon his return from Miami in 2014, James also lobbied for the acquisition of Love, a fine player though unlucky with injuries, the latest being his collision with the Celtics' Jason Tatum early in Game 6 that put him in concussion protocol and left him on the sidelines on Sunday night. "Like I said, everybody is going to have their opinion of what LeBron has around him". Even with all of his might, Morris couldn't stop James from scoring while drawing the foul. "Kevin wanted to play, to be in a Game 7 situation like this in the Eastern Conference Finals, being an All-Star, being our second-best player, and he just wasn't able to go". Or Horry's. Or Havlichek's, either.

Per usual, LeBron James delivered a dominant performance.

"Right around the trade deadline, no matter if we made a trade or not at that time, I kind of just switched my mindset on saying, 'Let's just get the most out of this season I can'". Declaring James the best player of all-time did not come because of Sunday's game. But citing "league sources", O'Connor wrote that the major factors in James' decision-making would be how it fits with raising his family, the team's championship chances and the ability to set up a post-playing career in "the world of entertainment and team ownership". The win over Boston was just an indication of his place in history.

The Warriors visit the Rockets on Monday night for the decisive Game 7 of their Western Conference final after overcoming a 10-point halftime deficit and winning 115-86 at home on Saturday. He beat the Indiana Pacers all by himself, in the playoffs, just this very season. He opened the game 1-for-5 and was 3-for-13 five minutes into the third quarter.

The question is whether the future Hall of Famer can live up to the lofty expectations-and lead his team to the NBA Finals once again. Kezirian also noted this number is the highest of any National Basketball Association player ever. If you disagree, that's OK.
