ESPN Matches 2012 High In Game 7 Of NBA Eastern Conference Finals

You could say the Tribe Hot Dogs called the Cavaliers victory over the Celtics Sunday night.

As usual, the Cavaliers had LeBron James to thank as he produced more heroics in these playoffs to lead his team back to the Finals. Lue used his timeouts to get his star an extra few minutes of rest when he could, and James didn't warm up at halftime to conserve his energy. "The pace was really fast, and I thought the one positive of Houston getting off to that start that they did was the pace was high".

"Sorry for you guys that don't know much about Cedar Point", James said, "but it's been a roller coaster". The first four times he did it all happened in the span of his first 10 playoff games he ever played.

"It's been roses", James said.

If Paul is cleared to play, it will be interesting to see how much the line changes, but it would still be hard to bet against this Golden State core. "I think we've played now until May 25 and May 27 the last two years, and we started on September 25".

The Cleveland Cavaliers will face either the Golden State Warriors for the fourth time or take on the Houston Rockets.

The Cavaliers are expected to be underdogs against either.

"We're going to come out and we're going to be ready". "But more importantly, just the work that I put into it".

Jayson Tatum was the Boston Celtic's leading scorer in the playoffs, posting a team-high 24 points on 9-of-17 shooting with seven rebounds over 42 minutes in the Game 7 loss. Not to mention the fact that Houston played Game 6 without All-Star point guard Chris Paul (hamstring) and could be without him again on Monday. Though Love didn't have a great series against the Celtics, he provided a scoring threat for which Boston had to account.

"It's been a satisfaction in the fact that I like to be successful", James said when asked about his continued dominance of the Eastern Conference.

With his head fakes (and occasional theatrics), no one in the National Basketball Association is better at drawing contact.

This might be his weakest supporting cast. The latest of which was to Kevin Love who missed Game 7 because of landing in the NBA's concussion protocol.

Jeff Green finished with 19 points and eight rebounds, J.R. Smith tallied 12 points and Tristan Thompson scored 10 for Cleveland who beat Boston 109-99 on Friday to force game seven. "I'm the leader of this team, and I'm going to give what I've got", he said. With the rookie Tatum and second-year Jaylen Brown, Boston established itself as the team of the future in the East.

"As fun as it's been for a lot of guys, it's been heart-wrenching for a lot of guys because they have been unable to be out there on the court so they are going to be very excited to get back with it".
