Terry Rozier vows to get LeBron James back for block next year

НБА Кливленд и Бостон сыграют седьмой матч

Boston Celtics: Game 7 will be the Jayson Tatum show

James scored 35 points against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 on Sunday night, lifting the Cleveland Cavaliers into the NBA Finals.

Andre Iguodala has missed the last three games of the 2018 Western Conference Finals since suffering a left lateral leg contusion in Game 3, and as the series heads to Game 7, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr isn't holding his breath that the former NBA Finals MVP will suit up.

They are aiming for a fourth successive National Basketball Association finals appearance, while Houston last made the finals in 1995. "That's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell".

"Sorry for you guys that don't know much about Cedar Point", James said, "but it's been a roller coaster".

Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to lead the Celtics, who lost at home for the first time this postseason in 11 games.

Al Horford finished with 17 points and Jaylen Brown had 13 but he was just three-of-12 from the three-point line. They won their first 10 home games of the postseason.

However, Jeff Green started in place of Love and delivered with 19 points and eight rebounds.

The victor of the series will face either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. A Cleveland win further cements LeBron's legacy and they will have done it without Kevin Love who is in concussion protocol.

LBJ's reign in the east continues and he'll now go in search of his fourth ring with a fourth successive meeting with the Golden State Warriors on the cards.

"I think it's a game-time decision", D'Antoni told reporters Sunday.

"As fun as it's been for a lot of guys, it's been heart-wrenching for a lot of guys because they have been unable to be out there on the court so they are going to be very excited to get back with it". He did everything the Cavs needed him to do and more. For the most part, I thought we were pretty good at that. I mean, it's an every-single-day work ethic that I have while I'm playing this game, while I have the ability to play this game at this level. Boston was 7 for 39 from 3-point range, with Rozier missing all 10 of his attempts. Cleveland made 45.5 percent of its field-goal attempts, including 9 of 35 from beyond the arc (25.7 percent). After slowly getting back on his feet, James shook hands with a fan he knocked over. I hope they are able to take away the intensity and the commitment to defending and doing those little things in order for us to be able to be successful. I just know he's just built for stardom. We put ourselves in position.

Korver, who just four days earlier was exasperated with his team's effort in the same building, sounded stunned that Cleveland actually did it.
