Tune-In Tidbits: East Finals, Game 7, May 27, 2018

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts after a play against the Boston Celtics in game six of the Eastern conference finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron James and the depleted Cleveland Cavaliers won't get any sympathy from the Celtics when they return to Boston for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cavs in Cleveland, delivered another sensational performance - he added 11 rebounds and nine assists while playing all but two minutes - to avoid elimination and delay any decisions about his future.

There's no time to dwell on that, not with a Game 7 matchup on the horizon.

The 33-year-old's next challenge: finding a way to beat the Celtics, who have played at another level on their home floor.

The Celtics will have a bit of an edge in the physicality department from the tip in Game 7: Cavaliers star Kevin Love was ruled out with a concussion on Saturday, stemming from a collision with Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Game 6.

If the Wine & Gold are to advance to their fourth-straight Finals - and considering the absence of Kevin Love - they'll need to get more from their starting backcourt on Sunday night.

"I felt some pain throughout my entire right side of my ankle into my leg", James said.

After Game 6, LeBron has now won more than twice as many elimination games as Jordan, while also outscoring Jordan in the process. James said. "If I'd have told you at the beginning of the season we only needed one game to make the NBA Finals, we'd take it". "Obviously, I would have had to literally have a real, real, really bad injury - [knocks on table] I don't even know if this is. that's not even wood; I'll find some on the way out - to come off the floor with the opportunity we have to be able to force a Game 7", James said. "I just think our fans are going to be ready to go from the beginning".

At one time, James, Irving and Love comprised Cleveland's "Big 3", a power trio that won an National Basketball Association championship together and went to three straight Finals before fracturing. The Boston Celtics are headed home to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in what should be a spectacular game.

"I have a passion for the game", James said. "Doing stuff defensively, that's got to be our mindset to start".

George Hill added 20 points, and Jeff Green 14 for the Cavs. The Celtics can withstand a single-man effort from James.

"You've got to make shots", he said.

"We can't just rely on being at home as an excuse that it's going to be easy, because it's not", he said, flatly.

The Celtics need to be moving the ball well, they need to be protecting the ball and they need to be getting all the easy buckets.

Five Celtics scored 10 or more points, and the team was led in scoring by Terry Rozier with 27 and Jaylen Brown with 28.
