With AP Photos.LeBron James scored 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists to earn an eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to an 87-79 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

During the third quarter, James asserted his dominance in a pretty significant way, owning Terry Rozier with a vicious chase-down block on a would-be layup attempt.

As what can be seen on the figure above, James is easily smoking the numbers his predecessors have put up in their own great playoff runs during their respective 15th seasons in the National Basketball Association.

"Just for good measure, he added a three-point play and then was taken out of the game to a rousing ovation and chants of "Cavs in 7!" "But more importantly, just the work that I put into it". One play can change the whole game, and we just have to be keyed in all of our coverages and all the plays we're running.

"I think when you lose an All-Star like Kevin and our second go-to guy, pivotal part of what we try to do, and when he goes down and then you help your brother up, that's what they did", praised Coach Tyronn Lue. Bomani Jones has talked about how different Cleveland fans are with their defensiveness and willingness to go over the top whenever someone attacks us. He also provided another big body to contest LeBron James if the Cavaliers superstar got around the paint.

Al Horford with 12 points and Jayson Tatum with 11.

The series is tied at 3-3 and Cleveland must win in Boston on Sunday to progress to the finals.

We look at Game 7 of Cleveland/Boston, where another legendary performance by LeBron James propels the Cavs to a fourth straight NBA Finals. Multiple games now in TD Garden, held them under 100, three games in the 80s - but he still scored 35.


It also happens that James left Cleveland following that loss to the Celtics and chances are James will once again be leaving if the Celtics manage to close out this series.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens could only chuckle when asked if it ever comes into his mind that his team is facing a generational talent like James.

The Boston Celtics are somehow one win away from taking down LeBron James and reaching the NBA Finals.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", Lue said.

"The second quarter definitely killed us", Rozier said of Cleveland's 34-18 advantage.

The Celtics actually got off to a strong start in the first quarter but a huge run by Cleveland in the second quarter gave them an 11-point lead heading into halftime, a cushion that the Cavaliers wouldn't relinquish.

Kyle Korver added 14 points with several hustle plays, and Tristan Thompson had 13 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland.
