LeBron James next team: Most likely destinations for Cleveland Cavaliers hero revealed

LeBron James next team: Most likely destinations for Cleveland Cavaliers hero revealed

With a 109-99 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night, the Cavs forced just that and will now face the Celtics in a winner-takes-all game in Boston on Sunday. Even as the springy Rozier launched at the basket in transition, James simply rose up and smothered the attempt late in the third quarter. Best player in the game. "And I just tried to figure out how I can get through it". Larry Nance Jr. added 10 points and 7 rebounds. We had to play 'Bron as many minutes as he had to. Every time you're standing out there, every time you watch him on film.

But the Cavs got scare in the fourth when James went down hard on a drive tangling with Nance and clutching his right leg in obvious pain.

Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-Boston 31 (Horford 9), Cleveland 44 (James 11).

One of the two was going down and headed home early.

Does a Game 6 Loss Mean LeBron Is Done in Cleveland?

3-Point Goals: 9-23, .391 (James 5-7, Korver 2-3, Green 1-3, Smith 1-5, Clarkson 0-1, Love 0-1, Hill 0-3).

He is too big for any of the Celtics' guards, too quick for any of their bigs and too experienced for Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum to muster much opposition.

Within the first shut sport of the collection - and the lowest-scoring - James performed all 48 minutes and had 12 of his factors within the fourth quarter for his sixth straight Recreation 7 win.

The 33-year-old has reached the finals for the eighth consecutive season, but this campaign may be his crowning glory.

James now has won six straight Game 7s.

James has said he'll sit down after the season ends to decide next move, and he's already being courted in Philadelphia, Los Angeles and NY where fans can only dream of him joining their rosters.

Love, who missed a game in March with concussion symptoms, banged heads with Tatum and dropped to the court in the first quarter.

The Celtics finished a wildly successful season in which they exceeded all expectations considering the injuries and adversity they faced.

As the series shifts to a Game 7, a moment LeBron labels the "best two words in sports", one of the games greatest players may have one more trick up his sleeve. "Come out and play some great basketball, high energy and let's see who comes out on top".

How about Jeff Green with 14 points. A CliffsNotes version of the first quarter: Smith clanked a jumper off the side of the backboard, Love clunked heads with Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown (15 points) nearly outscored Cleveland by himself as Boston opened a 25-20 lead.

After taking a 25-20 lead after one quarter, the Celtics took a six-point edge, 30-24, early in the second.

The question, then, is whether the Celtics are a better road team now than a week ago, with the added difficulty of facing LeBron James in a potential elimination game.
