Boston Celtics: 3 reasons the season is over

  • Kevin Love has been ruled out of Game 7 between the Cavs and Celtics

I'm sorry, I know it is sacrilege but there is no comparison. "Now I have got to get into the postseason'".

The NBA Finals are scheduled to begin Thursday. "The way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from".

Green performed well in replacing Love in Game 6, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds and two blocks off the bench.

Dating back to his first stint with the Cavaliers, it has always been trendy to say that LeBron James has no help, at least when he's been in Cleveland.

King Lebron scored 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists to lead his team to win the Eastern Conference series 4-3.

That has carried over to the playoffs, where the Cavaliers came into Game 7 Sunday night 6-1 in clutch games with an insane +36.2 per 100.

"I was like, 'OK, I am not quite sure what we are going to do with this ball club; we are not playing good basketball, ' but you can't sell yourself short", James said.




The Warriors swept the two regular-season meetings with the Cavaliers, winning by seven at home on Christmas Day (without Curry) and prevailing by 10 in Cleveland about three weeks later. His path was much more challenging personally as well, as he dealt with a serious heart issue that caused him to miss an entire season in 2011-12.

"We said we want to do this for Kevin, " Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Wine and Gold will now await the victor of the Western Conference Finals as the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets do battle in a deciding Game 7 of their own tonight.

If someone told you before the season started that Jeff Green would be starting at power forward for the Cavs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, you probably would have thought Cleveland was in serious trouble.

The Cavs were stunned when Irving requested a trade after last year's Finals, saying he wanted to be "the focal point" of a team.

"Best player in the game", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after Friday's game. The four-time MVP averaged 34 points while shooting 54.2 percent from the field, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assist over 41.3 minutes in 18 playoff games. The only thing he can do to exceed it is go ahead and win another championship against the Warriors or Rockets in a couple weeks. I just go out and play my game.
