LeBron James and the Cavaliers miss Kyrie Irving more than the Celtics

"They made it to Game 7 with LeBron James".

"Our focus - LeBron's focus - is to win", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said.

If the Cavaliers' shamrock beatdown proves an Irish wake and James' roof-lifting stepback 3-pointer in the final minutes of a season-saving 109-99 win over the Celtics endures as our final image of him in Cleveland, how fitting it was.

At this point in the series, it's not a bad question to ask a coach on the brink of elimination. Lue replied after a brief chuckle. "I definitely can't say it on camera", Morris told reporters. We had to play Bron as many minutes as he had to.

Game seven, if needed, will be back in Boston on Sunday.

Interestingly enough, Lue conveniently didn't mention guys he can consistently rely on because there aren't any.

Timing can be a odd thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010. With Game 7 less than 48 hours from tipping off, there's a chance that the All-Star may not be able to pass more tests prior to the game.

The Cavaliers fought off elimination without Kevin Love, who left in the first quarter after colliding with Tatum.

Big and, in the fourth quarter, banged up a bit. "But I just always want to try to maximize when I'm on the floor, and I've been able to do that in my 15th year so far". Larry Nance Jr. added 10 points and 7 rebounds.

George Hill has been a different player in opposing venues throughout the first six games of the East Finals - and he enjoyed the home cooking on Friday night, finishing with 20 points on an efficient 7-for-12 shooting from the floor and ideal 6-of-6 from the line, adding three boards, three assists and a pair of steals.

The changes worked as the Celtics defense limited the Cavaliers to just 83 points to record a 13 point victory and take a 3-2 lead in the best of seven series.

Boston will look back on not grabbing rebounds - Cleveland grabbed the offensive rebound on 36.6 percent of their missed shots, a very high percentage - and the fact the Celtics missed nine free throws and think things could have been different. When a series goes seven games, James is 5-2 and has not lost a Game 7 since 2008. Cleveland didn't allow the Celtics their first fast break point until midway through the third quarter and shot 82 percent (18-of-22) from the stripe compared to just 55 percent (11-of-20) for Brad Stevens' squad.

With Korver on the bench until the second quarter, LeBron James and Kevin Love had to carry a heavier-than-normal burden, and neither got much help from their teammates. He also handles Tristan Thompson better than anyone else on the team, which is a little odd.

14 in 31 - With Love out, Jeff Green was counted on to both play and do a lot more than usual, especially all postseason. LeBron James delivering another fantastic performance. "I've had some really good games, and I've had some subpar games as well".

Not long after that, James hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the game on ice while scoring 12 points following the mishap. And that's why Vegas views this game as a pretty even matchup, with the Celtics getting the slight home-court boost.

A 9-0 Cavs run reduced the deficit to 12 points, but Cleveland came up empty on their next four attempts.
