Cleveland Cavaliers set up Game 7, and I can't wait! -- Terry Pluto

  • Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland?

LeBron James goes off for 46 points in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals to help the Cleveland Cavaliers avoid elimination with their, 109-99, win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night. And so there James was one possession in the third quarter scoring in transition, then chasing down Terry Rozier to impolitely redirect his seeming open layup into the stands.

After a season full of turmoil, that included a major revamp of the roster at February's trade deadline with six players offloaded and four acquired, this is arguably seen as James' greatest achievement ever. Following Game 6, Love said he was a "toss-up" to play, which would be a big loss for the Cavs. I've only just started listening to Love is Dead, their latest, but so far I think it's really good.

Point guard George Hill turned in his most aggressive and effective game of the series, scoring 20 points on 7-for-12 shooting with a flawless 6-for-6 mark from the free-throw line to go with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes. I mean, best player in the game. Every time you're standing out there, every time you watch him on film. Cleveland finished with a 44-31 advantage in rebounding, including 15-5 on the offensive boards, and went 18-of-22 at the stripe while Boston were a poor 11-of-20 at the line. "I'm just going to trust everything I put into it". And so too was LeBron James, when he suffered an apparent leg injury after Larry Nance Jr. fell on top of him. These were the same types of discussions following Games 1 and 2, which were met with James leading the Cavs to big wins at home for Games 3 and 4. However that will be Boston's final basket for greater than 5 minutes whereas Cleveland went on a 15-2 run to place the sport away.

Jayson Tatum - who scored 27 - got Boston within seven with a slam dunk in the fourth quarter but three consecutive three-pointers from James saw out the victory and the Cavs' eighth straight win at the Quicken Loans Arena.

It was James with four reserves, and they outscored Boston, 26-12. "I haven't always been successful, obviously".

Much to Europe's displeasure, foreign companies doing business with Iran are also at the crosshairs of the US sanctions. The "blocking statute" is a 1996 regulation originally created to get around Washington's trade embargo on Cuba.

Cleveland held Boston to 17 points in the quarter.

Moments later, James drilled a 3-pointer from the left wing to finally put away the young Celtics, who will now feel the vast pressure of trying to hold off the three-time champion.

"We have an opportunity to play for a championship", James said.

But during the first quarter this happened, and Kevin Love never made a return to the game. Cavs break off a 14-4 run, which included a J.R. Smith 3 and Tristan Thompson putback.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens considered changing his starting lineup, but chose to stick with the same first five - Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Al Horford, and Terry Rozier - as the first three games.
