How good is LeBron James in playoff elimination games?

With a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night, the Cavs forced just that and will now face the Celtics in a winner-takes-all game in Boston on Sunday.

Love, who missed a game in March with concussion symptoms, banged heads with Tatum and dropped to the court in the first quarter. It was unbelievable because this was his 99th game of the season and, two days earlier, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue had said he noticed him looking exhausted.

The Cleveland Cavaliers finished the regular season with one of the worst defensive records in the league ranked 29th. During the 2015 postseason, former teammate Kyrie Irving fractured his knee cap in the opening game of the Finals and Love (shoulder injury) never played a minute in a matchup the Golden State Warriors won.

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, Love has officially been ruled out for Sunday's Game 7 against the Boston Celtics.

"He just fought through everything tonight", Lue said.

"At the end of the day, it's incredibly hard to beat a good team in the National Basketball Association one time, and our focus is on what we need to do to give ourselves the best chance at being successful tomorrow night", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said when asked about the emotional roller coaster of what's coming for James in Game 6. James was exquisite in Game 6, missing a 40-point triple-double by one assist and making impossible plays seem mundane.

But America deserves a victor from this seven-game slam dance, and it shall get one Sunday.

If that doesn't smell enough like victory to you, then consider that Friday's Game 6 was up almost 6% from the Celtics' winning Game 5 of May 23, which also topped that night. "Best player in the game".

Al Horford had 15 points and 12 rebounds, and 21-year-old Jaylen Brown had 17 points for Boston. "Obviously, they'll run a little bit less of the Love stuff, and more of the other stuff. probably more opportunities for LeBron, more opportunities for (Kyle) Korver and (J.R.) Smith, more opportunities off those pick and rolls". 25 first-half points for LeBron. "We can't just rely on being at home for an excuse that it's going to be easy". And they can thank some of their youngest players for helping them get this far. "No concerns. You've got to be ready to play now". "We know it's challenging". "I mean, I don't enjoy being in a position where it's like, you lose, you go home", he said, adding that he hasn't won every elimination game and has been "subpar" in some of them.
