Fired-up LeBron James sees Cleveland home to level Eastern Conference finals

The Cavs won 109-99 in Cleveland on Friday night (Saturday NZT) to even the Eastern Conference Finals series at 3-all and set up a do-or-die game seven in Boston on Sunday (Monday NZT). Bryce, while giving his dad a personalized handshake, asked the King, "How do you make all those insane shots?" in a video posted on the Cavaliers' Twitter account.

James led all scorers in this one, finishing with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and he hit the dagger in this one. James, who has the highest scoring average in elimination games in National Basketball Association history at 34.1 points per game, has won his past five Game 7s, including the first round this season against the Indiana Pacers. "You don't like that". Therefore, despite his incredible track record, LeBron will have his hands full in Game 7 on Sunday.

Expand that search back to age 32 seasons and Jordan's age 32 shows up with James' 2017 playoff run to add to the list. So, heading into Game 6, with an extra level of desperation in the Cleveland Cavaliers facing elimination, there was an obvious "survive the first quarter" thought from pundits as priority No. 1 for the Celtics. Love, who missed a March 28 game at Charlotte with a concussion, immediately raised his left arm as if to signal he needed help. Boston dug themselves a hole they weren't able to climb out of when they were outscored by 16 points in the opening quarter of Game 4.

So if James didn't already have his work cut out for him when it comes to rest and recovery heading into Game 7, the right leg injury only makes the treatment that much more vital. The Cavs had a similar victory when they returned to Quicken Loans Arena, taking a 34-19 lead into the second quarter and winning Game 3 by 30 points.

CLEVELAND - What will happen when the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers play Game 7 on Sunday?

Things turned for good in the second quarter, when the Celtics could only manage 18 points.

James, who battled fatigue in Wednesday's game five loss, played an incredible 46 of a possible 48 minutes in the game six win. Kyle Korver inexplicably played just 19 minutes despite arguably being the team's second-best player in the playoffs.

Brown scored 15 points in the first quarter and finished with 27 for the game, but had just two points in that bad second quarter for Boston.

James had 12 of the Cavs' next 20 points. You can't go out and try to look pretty.

"I didn't know who got me but after the game Larry asked me if I was okay so I'm guessing he was the culprit". I haven't always played great in my career.
