At Least Jayson Tatum Posterized LeBron James In Game 7

Kevin Love out for Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion-like symptoms James pushes Cavs to Game 7 vs. Celtics

It's something you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me.

"Even if you start back to the summertime where I felt like it was just bad for our franchise just to be able to trade away our superstar point guard", James told ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

They will play Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets, who meet in a game seven decider on Monday. James was his usual Game 7 self, dropping 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks in a complete game performance. The big win now marks the eighth straight year that The King has made it to the NBA Finals, and the moment was not lost on him.

Yeah, this probably wasn't the best time to have a terrible shooting night.

Jayson Tatum scored 24, Al Horford scored 17 and Marcus Morris added 14 points with 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who were looking to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

Love has struggled mightily against the Warriors on the NBA's biggest stage. Given his proximity to the action, the C's legend took it upon himself to say something to LeBron James as the fourth quarter got underway.




While losing Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on your home floor is extremely disappointing, especially given how winnable the game was for Boston, the future is extremely bright for the Celtics.

But the Celtics couldn't get 3-pointers to fall, and Cleveland slowly chipped their way back into it. James got 3-pointers from J.R. Smith and Jeff Green, and by the time halftime rolled around, Boston's lead was down to 43-39. Love shot below 40 percent from the field again past year, averaging 16.0 points and 11.2 rebounds per game. Either way, the Celtics know they let this one slip through their fingers.

Whatever the case, LeBron is sure to be missing Kyrie right about now, as he faces off against the Golden State Warriors for the fourth time in a row in the NBA Finals. They scored just two points over the next five minutes. The Boston Celtics on the other side of this result are ready to contend for a while.

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.

He's going to have to keep doing that for a couple of more games, at least.
