What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 6

Celtics vs Cavs Score Game 6 NBA Playoffs Results Today

If The Machine can churn out one more game for the ages, he'll bring the Cavs home. However, this game was also somewhat personal, as James took on the Celtics during the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012 while playing for the Miami Heat.

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James (23) reacts after hitting a three-point shot late in the game over the Celtics Jayson Tatum (not pictured) to give Cleveland a 107-96 lead, on their way to a 109-99 victory. Boston played well but LeBron at the height of his powers, along with some key contributions from the supporting cast, was just too much.

"We can go to him more but, when they double, we just have to make the right play out of it, and Al is one of our best at doing that", Stevens said. Game 7 at home in the Garden; great atmosphere, great environment, great stage. But first, some of the basics.

That is the history the Celtics will be looking to defy in Game 6 as a squad without its two injured All-Stars looks to prove that the sum of its young, aggressive, relentless, team-oriented parts is enough to overcome the single greatest player of a generation. The Celtics are still undefeated at home in these playoffs, they have already beaten the Cavaliers three times by an average of 17 points in this series and the home team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings. One game, one win, stands between your Cleveland Cavaliers and a fourth consecutive trip to The Finals.

"It should mean that he's gone, since he already did what he vowed to do, which was win a title for his hometown Cavs", Herring said of a loss.

Worse, the team was disjointed entirely, with a gimpy, 37-year-old Shaquille O'Neal starting at center and midseason acquisition Antawn Jamison at forward. Tatum added seven rebounds, four assists and four steals one day after finishing a single vote shy of a unanimous selection to the NBA's All-Rookie team. "He was outstanding", Stevens said, per ESPN.

Trailing the Celtics 3-2 and facing elimination in the Eastern Conference finals, the Cavaliers triumphed in a bruising encounter on their home floor to knot the best-of-seven series at 3-3 and force game seven in Boston on Sunday. James was just one defeat away from being attached to a loser's brand that would be very hard to shake. "He's going to continue to get better". "We have to come out and do what we have to do".


He'll have to come up clutch once again when they face the Celtics in Boston for Game 7 this Sunday. "We have no other way out".

James scored 25 points in playing every minute of the first half, when the Cavaliers absorbed the blow of losing Kevin Love to a possible concussion and then out-scored the Celtics 34-18 in the second quarter to take control of the game.

Game 7 is on.

"That's one of the things that I don't think has been lost on this group throughout its entire journey, before the playoffs and now, is we have fun".

It is the stuff of legend and champions as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers said on Friday that they would not be going quietly into the National Basketball Association playoffs elimination night. "Two teams have to come out and play".

James is in the midst of the most prolific postseason of his career.
