LeBron James leads Cavaliers into National Basketball Association finals

"Then I'm looking at what LeBron James has done and his body of work". "That's all that matters".

James scored 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists as the Cavs beat the Boston Celtics 87-79 to clinch the Eastern Conference finals series 4-3.

As well as his 35 points, James finished with 15 rebounds and nine assists, while Jeff Green, who made his first start since the opening game of the first round against IN, recorded 19 points and eight rebounds.

Her thirst for the four-time MVP and three-time National Basketball Association champion is well documented, so it's no surprise that Rihanna was overjoyed when James pulled his team to victory over the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The game was not pretty at times, but Cleveland overcame all the adversity to win the biggest game of the season thus far.

Jayson Tatum paced the Celtic attack with 24 points as Boston suffered their only loss in 11 playoff home games.

"I have learned probably everything alongside possibly the best player to have played this game", said Green.

"Every day that you're totally focused on this, and he's gone past that eight straight times".

"And he does it at this level with the pressure and scrutiny", he added. "Doesn't matter. It's just unbelievable". The Warriors were around -300 over the Cavaliers in last year's Finals. He missed the entire 2015 Finals after suffering a dislocated shoulder earlier in the playoffs. The only thing he can do to exceed it is go ahead and win another championship against the Warriors or Rockets in a couple weeks.

Despite playing with one of his least reliable supporting casts, James still threw the ball around, firing passes for open three pointers despite the Cavs making just 9-of-35 from long range.

Carrying the Cleveland Cavaliers to this year's NBA Finals is among the most impressive feats of LeBron James' career but the challenge that now awaits the game's greatest player may be more than even he can handle. "I meant no disrespect by it", Tatum told reporters. But whatever the next chapter brings, James will have owned the Celtics in a fashion few other players in history ever did. I like our chances.

A tired LeBron James rallied his team in Game 7 with what was almost a triple-double - 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists.

It remains unclear if the 29-year-old will recover in time for Thursday's opener against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

Whichever team comes out of the west, they'll be heavy favourites against the Cavs but James is on a mission and won't go down without a fight. "This is one of the most challenging seasons I have had".
