  • Kevin Love out for Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion-like symptoms

"I don't even think about that, whether I'm starting or not", Green said Wednesday.

In hindsight, the trade nearly ruined Cleveland's season, as what the Cavs got in return for Irving - an injured Isaiah Thomas, a non-existent Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brookyn's 2018 first-round pick, which ended up landing at 8th in the lottery - nearly made LeBron and the Cavaliers miss the postseason up until they cleared house at the trade deadline and transformed their roster. This will be the 101st consecutive game LeBron has played this season - the most in any season - at age 33 in his 15th year in the National Basketball Association. They were able to take care of the first part - and did it basically without Love, with former Celtics player Jeff Green filling in and having a strong game.

James, who entered with an NBA-record Game 7 average of 34.9 points, improved to 6-2 lifetime in Game 7s. It matched Game 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals: the Miami Heat and LeBron James vs. the Boston Celtics.

"I tried to squeeze the orange until there was no more juice", James told reporters after logging 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists while playing all 48 minutes of the series finale.

That has carried over to the playoffs, where the Cavaliers came into Game 7 Sunday night 6-1 in clutch games with an insane +36.2 per 100.

"I'm the leader of this team, and I'm going to give what I've got", LeBron said.

And no matter what the past indicates, the Golden Knights and Capitals will be who ultimately decide their own future. First, the Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves got away with a cross-check on John Carlson that led to a 4-4 tying goal.

Cleveland has faced the Warriors in the last three NBA Finals, winning in 2016 and losing in 2015 and 2017. Often considered a career underachiever, Green showed up big in the place of the injured Kevin Love, scoring 19 points and pulling down eight rebounds.

Coming into the clash, Boston was a ideal 10-0 at home in the playoffs this year and had secured three easy wins over the Cavs already.

"We have one game to be able to compete for a championship, what more can you ask for?"

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said that amid all the upheaval with trades in and out, James had been a true leader.

James dropped 17 points and went 6-of-12 from the field in the first half, scoring almost half of Clevelands first half points.

"I think we've played now until May 25th and May 27th the last two years, and we started on September 25th", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. We just had so many things going with our team. "I work on my game".
