LeBron James does it again.

On the shoulders of LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics on Sunday. In March, Tyronn Lue took a nine-game leave of absence to address health issues and guard J.R. Smith was suspended for throwing a bowl of chicken tortilla soup at assistant coach Damon Jones. "Made a play. Just showing emotion". "I just know he's built for stardom".

"I'll have plenty of time to talk about next year but we obviously have a good thing going", Stevens said when reminded about his returning superstars next year. And this year, you didn't at all. You got to tip your hat off to those guys over there.

James' option for next season is for $35.6 million.

That's not to say James will ever play like this again, though it's hard to say how he wouldn't be able to.

But "The King" and the rest of the Cavaliers are not out of the woods just yet as a more daunting task in the Finals await them when they face either of the two teams they have yet to conquer in the 2017-2018 regular season. In the postseason, they have not exactly transformed into a typical title contender, but they have papered over their flaws and persevered.

"To me, it's sort of one of those proof points that nothing is ideal in the world", Gilbert told ESPN.

"Little carelessness, little tiredness, whatever", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said after the loss.

Tatum hit a 3-pointer after his driving dunk over James put Boston up 72-71 with 6:04 remaining in the game, but Green answered with another trey at the 5:44 mark, and Cleveland didn't relinquish the lead after that. "He's unbelievable. He's the best player in the world and I'm glad he's on my side".

Thompson came through with his best performance of these playoffs with the season on the line, just as he did in a 2016 Game 6 of the Western Conference finals at Oklahoma City when he went off for 41 points against Durant and the Thunder to force Game 7.

After 10,000 people paid $10 each to watch Saturday night's game at the Toyota Center in what was a fundraiser for victims of the Santa Fe school shooting, Harden has no doubt that the home fans will be ready to help them out in Game 7.

Stevens, by the way, was pleased with how Boston defended James and limited open looks for his supporting cast. It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny. I just had so much fun out there each and every night, no matter if we won or lost, just how we competed and always gave it our all. The Celtics have more playmakers and two-way players than the Cavaliers. "They can only get better from here", read one comment. "It's just so intense in the playoffs and getting to the Finals and now the Finals, I don't think - and I know he doesn't - I don't think even our guys are talking (about anything other than) what's in front of them".

"Dennis Rodman came in my dream last night, and I was wondering why he came in my dream".
