  • Boston Celtics Pride: The growing legend of Jayson Tatum

ClevelandLeBron James scored 46 points and preserved his reign atop the Eastern Conference for at least one more game as the Cleveland Cavaliers shook off losing All-Star Kevin Love with a head injury and beat the Boston Celtics 109-99 on Friday night to force a Game 7. The door was open for the Celtics to put their postseason road woes behind them and close the series out.

The Celtics looked giddy. His 31.1 points per game were good though he had a career low 19.4% shooting from three-point land despite having the second most attempts from there in his postseason career (3.5 attempts per game with 0.7 makes).

The Celtics are a ideal 10-0 at home this postseason. Dropped to 1-4 in Game 6s over the last four postseasons.

Love, who is in his fourth season with Cleveland and is the club's second-best player, is averaging 15 points and 11 rebounds in the series.

"LeBron is different than a lot of other guys, but that's no excuse", Rozier said of the pending meeting. "It'll be around-the-clock treatment, and we'll see what happens". The Cavaliers also lost Kevin Love midway through the quarter after a scary collision with Boston's Jayson Tatum. "That's all we're anxious about".

"Best player in the game", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of James.

"We can't just rely on us being at home for an excuse that it's going to be easy". "Obviously, we came up short tonight". While they have struggled on both ends of the floor away from TD Garden, Boston has looked untouchable on the parquet floor. Nance took flight while guarded by the Celtics' Marcus Morris.

Judge orders 30-year-old man to leave parents’ home
No specified deadline was stated in court, but the lawyer mentioned that it would include reasonable time for Rotondo to vacate. A U.S. judge has ordered a 30-year-old man to move out of his parents' house after they went to court to have him ejected.

Cuffed Harvey Weinstein taken to New York courthouse on rape charge
Asked about the raft of other allegations against Weinstein, Brafman said the case was a question of crime, not bad behaviour. She was among the first women to speak out about the producer and has confirmed to The New Yorker to be pressing charges.

Scientists suggest someone is secretly making banned ozone-depleting chemical
The team said the emissions were most likely due to new, unreported production from an unidentified source in East Asia. Availability of alternatives to CFC-11 makes it hard to understand why there is still a market for the chemical.

"As soon as I leave here, I'll start to prepare", James said.

"We think we have the best fans in the whole league", added Smart. Then the Cavaliers came on in the second with a 20-4 run behind LeBron, and once they had the lead the Cavaliers never let it go. "We just have to come and bring it".

Maybe the Celtics shouldn't even be here, given that they're missing two of their three best players.

Game 7 is on.

"It's not going to be pretty". You got to be able to get down and get dirty. "It's kind of like that moment where you don't want to go home". "You have to be ready for a dog fight".

"At the end of the day, it's incredibly hard to beat a good team in the National Basketball Association one time, and our focus is on what we need to do to give ourselves the best chance at being successful tomorrow night", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said when asked about the emotional roller coaster of what's coming for James in Game 6. These two sharpshooters will need to knock down their fair share of shots to leave Game 7 with a win.

If you asked the Celtics at the beginning of the postseason if they'd like to have one game on the floor for a trip to The Finals, they'd surely have accepted it.
