How good is LeBron James in playoff elimination games?

How good is LeBron James in playoff elimination games?

James readily dismissed the notion though in his turn to talk.

LeBron James' 46 points tonight was a career high in an elimination game. James (26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists) and Love (14 points and seven rebounds) did what they could, yet the Cavaliers' other starters, George Hill, J.R. Smith and Thompson, combined for only 10 points.

"I thought Baynes gave them a physicality, protected the lane and protected the paint", Tyronn Lue said. "Championship pedigree. Giving it his all". Kyle Korver inexplicably played just 19 minutes despite arguably being the team's second-best player in the playoffs. "He delivered. He carried us home as usual".

The king is not dead, and he still has a chance to make his eighth straight NBA Finals. "I'm for sure going to find a Chipotle in Boston, I'll tell you that". "I know what I'm capable of doing, and I'm going to trust everything I put into it".

A hoop by James - he had 17 points in the quarter and 25 while playing the entire first half - made it a 54-40 game before Rozier hit a 3-pointer in the closing seconds to cut Boston's deficit to 54-43 at halftime.

The pen does not come with safety features to ensure the device doesn't overheat, according to an online product description . The company said they've encountered previous issues with other manufacturers creating imitation batteries.

The Celtics made a late push, but James snuffed it out with massive back-to- back three-pointers in the final two minutes. Love, who missed a March 28 game at Charlotte with a concussion, immediately raised his left arm as if to signal he needed help. "It's a feeling you can't explain". He has played 16 games thus far though the Cavs record is well below those Bulls at 10-6. In 2012, he faced a Game 6 elimination in Boston and scored 45 points with 15 rebounds and five rebounds as Miami won. "Real hectic. I expect us not to be able to hear each other", said guard Marcus Smart.

"We've still got to come out aggressive and play Celtics basketball", he said. We've got to come out ready to fight.

However, now that the end of the season is near, it's even more pertinent to brood on what a Cleveland loss prior to making the NBA Finals would mean for LeBron's future.

And midway through the final quarter James appeared to suffer a serious right leg injury when team-mate Larry Nance Jr fell on him. "And one that when we review it, we'll look at it and figure out if we need to do more".

"I've never went to any season saying, 'OK, let's have a Finals streak, '" James said. "It's just something special". "But, like I said, we're looking forward to it". I appreciate that team because of that. That pre-season script has gone through several edits over the last seven months, with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward both sidelined for Boston and Isaiah Thomas long gone from Cleveland, but here they are.
