Check out this end of game action in this Fantastic Finish.
LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers looks on in the second half against the Boston Celtics during Game Two of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on May 15, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.
"No one person has ever shouldered more and gotten his team to the finals", National Basketball Association commentator Jeff Van Gundy said.
LeBron James - who is heading to the Finals for a record eighth straight year - played all 48 minutes of Game 7, scoring 35 points to go along with 14 rebounds and 9 assists.
Jayson Tatum scored 24 for Boston, which was looking to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.
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.
Jeff Green played 42 minutes filling in for the concussed Kevin Love and added 19 points and eight rebounds while JR Smith had 12 points and Tristan Thompson had 10 points and nine rebounds in 35 minutes down low.
In his 15 year in the NBA, James is still averaging a league-high 33.9 points per game (PPG) in the playoffs so far. If the Cavs are going to win on the road for the first time all series, it'll likely require a monster performance from James.
We sure took a roundabout route to get here, but the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season. Tatum had just given them a 72-71 lead, but from that point on they were outscored 16-7 and made just two of their 13 shot attempts, including eight missed 3-pointers. "I've learned so much", Tatum said. "Right about the time the championship banner went up on opening night, whispers about James leaving again had already started circulating among team officials". The broadcast network has drawn stellar viewership numbers for the Finals over the past three years - the best numbers since Michael Jordan's final titles in the late-1990s.
That defensive play was part of a stellar third quarter for the Cavaliers, outscoring the Celtics by seven points and taking a three-point lead into fourth. Tell us who was clutch in the comments! "He's unbelievable. He's the best player in the world and I'm glad he's on my side". "We obviously have a good thing going".
