The LeBron Show: James sends Cavs to Boston for Game 7

Weiss Le Bron James continues to overpower Celtics in Game 4 win Weiss Le Bron James continues to overpower Celtics in Game 4 win

Only one player in National Basketball Association history has done anything approaching what LeBron James is doing at age 33 in the playoffs.

The Boston Celtics are not going to make any modifications to one thing that worked for them in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The Cavaliers will have to do it again Friday night to force a Game 7 in Boston and keep them in the hunt for a trip to the NBA Finals.

James also had high praise for the veteran shooter, saying after the game, "I've loved Kyle ever since we made the trade to get him here". "It just happens because I've been able to play with some great players".

One user on Twitter pointed out, "I don't know what's more unbelievable, that the Cavs need 37 year old Kyle Korver to be their 3rd best player or that he's doing it".

"At one point we had two opportunities to cut it to single digits and missed some really good looks, two three-pointers".

And the Celtics' big Australian center didn't just help clean up the boards.

LeBron James had 26 points and 10 rebounds and Kevin Love scored 14 for the Cavaliers, who are trying to reach the finals for the fourth consecutive season.

"Greatness", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. But the Cavs' chances of winning decrease when their best player averages six turnovers a game and teammates don't pitch in. "He didn't play him tonight, so it kind of threw us for a loop". Rozier had eight points, six assists, six rebounds and three steals for the Celtics.

That being said, this Cavaliers team is much less convincing than any of those Heat teams. The Cavs needed it to survive, but it's questionable if there will be lingering effects Sunday.

"So now we've got to go home, win Game 6 and come back here for Game 7".

The Cavs announced an hour later at halftime that Love wouldn't return. The Cavs' backs are officially against the wall as they face a do-or-die game Friday night in Cleveland.

Morris' words speak to the delicate balancing act that exists between embracing their success in the moment while maintaining that hunger going forward in their quest for greatness.

"I think then all of the rest of the world is relative, right?"

When told about Tatum being left off one of the first-team ballots, Boston head coach Brad Stevens couldn't understand it and believed there could only be one explanation.
