LeBron James shuts down Boston Celtics' Finals plans with another legendary performance

LeBron James' 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists Friday night carried the Cavaliers to a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, tying the Eastern Conference finals at 3-3.

LeBron can add more to his greatness on Monday in Game 7 of the series in Boston.

Wounded and worn out, LeBron James put in a superhuman performance that was extraordinary even for his standards to carry the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory over the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

According to Lloyd, Love says his status for the winner-take-all-game is a "toss-up" after he spent the majority of Game 6 in the locker room being evaluated for a concussion.

Down 3-2 to the Boston Celtics and facing elimination, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed to show up and put forth a strong effort in front of their home crowd on Friday night.

And then when it was time to secure a Game 7 back at TD Garden, James drilled back-to-back deep 3-pointers over Jayson Tatum to push the Cavs' lead to 11 and head for the airport.

"We were on that one and our trainers were on that one in the huddle right after", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. In the three games in Cleveland, Hill averaged 15.3 points on 53 percent shooting. He finished with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, that included two awesome dagger 3-pointers in the final minutes. He remains as among the best, if not the best, players in the game, and his presence in the Cavs' fold is undoubtedly what holds together a team filled with malfunctioning parts. He felt fine. He'll be just like every other time.

Terry Rozier pumped in six 3-pointers and led Boston with 28 points while Jaylen Brown gunned in 27. Overall, Boston was efficient, shooting 51.4 percent from the floor and also managed to convert 42.9 percent of their three-point opportunities. Tatum finished with 15 but was largely a non-entity during the first half.

The Celtics have lost just one game in front of their home crowd in these playoffs.
