LeBron James prepares for most challenging Game 7 National Basketball Association

  • LeBron James carries under-powered Cleveland Cavaliers to NBA finals with game seven win over Boston Celtics

James played all 82 regular-season games for the first time in his career and is already at 100 for the year with at least four more to come.

James pushed the gap to five from the line with 2:00 to go with a three-point play from James helping the Cavaliers draw clear in the final two minutes as Boston missed shot after shot after shot.

After Sunday night's game, James was greeted outside the Cavaliers locker room by none other than P.K. Subban, the Nashville Predators defenceman who used to play for the Canadiens.

The NBA final begins Thursday at either Houston or Golden State. Both players have one flaw that tends to drive fans insane, that is also central to why they're such good players.

The two spoke for maybe 10 or 15 seconds, James commanding the conversation.

Cleveland became the first team to win on the road in the series and the first to beat the Celtics at home in the postseason.

Look at James' conference finals averages against the Celtics while playing Game 7 without a concussed Kevin Love and with a team that the Cavaliers basically assembled at the February trade deadline.

But ultimately Boston's very bad 3-point shooting (7-of-39) and 29-percent second-half shooting did the team in.

Tatum admitted that James seeking him out after the final buzzer meant a lot to first-year player.

"The pain is part of the path", said a disappointed Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

The truth is Horford finds ways to make every other Celtics player's life much easier on both ends.

Getting run over by LeBron James: Priceless.

Just like their opening-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics have won three at home and lost three on the road in this series.

He left the Garden looking downtrodden after shooting just 5-for-18 and 3-for-12 on 3-pointers, but he'll be back.

That sentiment rang especially true throughout the postseason, with the Indiana Pacers almost taking a 3-1 lead in the opening round before some clutch 3-point shooting from Korver in Game 4 saved the season.

He essentially sealed the game for Cleveland with an incredible and-1 at the 1:04 mark of the fourth frame, when he powered through a foul by Boston's Marcus Morris, and converted a bucket. "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7". I play extremely hard throughout the postseason, and I'd be cheating my team if I said I could go out and play 48 minutes. "We've talked about it all year, we know what the narrative has been about our team". "That it's going to end in the finals is really fantastic, it really is", forward Kyle Korver said in the Cavs' locker room on Sunday night.
