LeBron takes charge once more, tows Cavs to Finals

LeBron James carries under-powered Cleveland Cavaliers to NBA finals with game seven win over Boston Celtics

After scoring 46 points in another elimination-game special for the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Friday night, James returns to the scene of his 2012 magic and tries to do it again in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday night.

James has been in the final every year since 2011 - four with Miami, and now four straight with Cleveland.

Before half-time, Boston had been in the driving seat, and were ahead by 10 points early in the second quarter thanks to impressive performances by Al Horford and Jayson Tatum. This is a team that made a franchise-changing trade last summer, remade the roster at the trade deadline, finished 29th in defensive rating in the regular season and nearly lost a seven-game series against the Indiana Pacers in the first round. He finished with 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting with 15 rebounds and 9 assists.

The NBA Finals begin Thursday at either Houston or Golden State. The lone All-Star on a team in Game 7 of a Conference Finals needs to shoot more than that.

"I thought we were pretty good at that. but he still scored 35". But whatever the next chapter brings, James will have owned the Celtics in a fashion few other players in history ever did.

The Cavs are the lowest playoff seed, No. 4, for a James team in a decade.

"He's unbelievable", said Boston coach Brad Stevens.

ESPN sportscaster Mark Jackson was not happy that Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving was nowhere to be found at the TD Garden Sunday night. "And he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny - doesn't matter". It'll be fascinating to see how that looks when he's got those elite scorers to dish to instead of Terry Rozier and Marcus Morris, as good as those two were at times during Boston's postseason run.

"For somebody to go through this their first time and go through a full National Basketball Association season - he played, I think, pretty much every game - and to be in these pressure situations in the playoffs, his composure, making play after play and really just poised and ready for moments all year".

Tatum roared and chest bumped James afterwards, leading James to scowl at Tatum for several seconds at the Celtics rookie ran back down the court.

"I just love everything about the kid - the way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from", James said after Cleveland's 87-79 victory.

"The bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", praised Coach Tyronn Lue. Unfortunately for Boston, they shot just 34.1 percent in front of their home fans, including an abysmal 7-for-39 showing from three-point range.

"I really can't believe it, to be honest with you", Korver said.

The Celtics came into Game 7 of the ECF with a flawless 10-0 record at home - including three convincing wins over Cleveland.
