LeBron James gives all thumbs up to Celtics rookie Tatum

The place will depend on who wins the Western Conference Finals on Monday night, as the Houston Rockets will look to defeat the defending champs, the Golden State Warriors, in Game 7 at their place.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. "We shuffled in different lineups, we shuffled in different players, we made a trade at the deadline, and I can't sit here right now and say that the Finals was a part of my thinking". I'm trying to squeeze this orange until there's no more juice left. "It's a heck of an accomplishment for our ball club to (to win) without our All Star forward for basically two games".

"I worked hard to get to this position".

Tatum, after dunking on James, taunted the four-time NBA MVP, but it was James who found a new gear down the stretch, throwing assists and burying match-winning baskets.

With point guard Kyrie Irving traded to Boston in the offseason, and a roster that required a revamp during the year, the Cavaliers were not expected to get this far, even with three-time National Basketball Association champion James. "And he delivered again".

Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to lead the Celtics, who lost at home for the first time this postseason in 11 games. Al Horford added 17 points and Marcus Morris had a double-double with 14 points and 12 boards.

Green was Cleveland's second-best player in Game 7, scoring 19 points on 50 percent shooting with eight rebounds.

According to the most recent report, Love remains in concussion protocol.

As I said, the game was not a pretty one to watch.

If someone told you before the season started that Jeff Green would be starting at power forward for the Cavs in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, you probably would have thought Cleveland was in serious trouble.

"We got to be ready to come up with our nose bloodied, we got to be ready to come out with our mouth bloodied, we have to come out ready to fight". With Chris Paul out, and ahead with a 17-point lead in the first quarter, did the Rockets blow a golden opportunity in the Bay?

The Cleveland Cavaliers had the point differential of a 43-39 team this season, just a couple of games above.500.

Cleveland owned the seventh-best record in the Association on February 6 at 30-22 but was losers of 13 of its last 20 games at the time - a stretch which included six defeats in seven outings from January 8-23.

"I think we've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years, and we started on September 25th", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Cleveland had finished just fourth in the East, never developing the necessary cohesiveness required to be even a mediocre defensive team, let alone a championship-caliber one. I just think about what I need to do to impact this series, to impact the game, to help my team.
