LeBron James won't forget his Dan Gilbert anger

  • НБА Кливленд и Бостон сыграют седьмой матч

Our defense was really solid. "It's what you play for, to be in a situation where you're one win away from going to the finals".

LeBron James does it again.

While losing Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on your home floor is extremely disappointing, especially given how winnable the game was for Boston, the future is extremely bright for the Celtics.

"It has been an fantastic, crazy, hard year", Korver said. "Made a play. Just showing emotion". "You don't see players like that very often, and realising that he's nearing the "home stretch" of his career gave me pause to appreciate what we're seeing". As a basketball fan, to turn on the TV last night and watch the game and there were points in the game where you didn't know how it was going to play out and they found a way to get it done, so shout-out to him.

"This is the last chapter for our team this season", said James.

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

The Rockets, who led the league with 65 regular season wins, ran roughshod over Golden State in the opening quarter as they raced to a 39-22 lead. In the postseason, they have not exactly transformed into a typical title contender, but they have papered over their flaws and persevered. For the most part, I thought we were pretty good at that.

"He's just been getting treatment and trying to make sure it calms down", D'Antoni said.


The Celtics led by as many as 12 points in the first half, and they had a 51-47 lead midway through the third quarter when James hit a long 3-pointer and then Green made a 3 of his own.

"Fortunately for us, we've got easily the best player in the world on our team", Smith said.

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.

It wasn't until the second half that his supporting cast came to life and the Cavaliers were able to wrestle control back from the Celtics in the low-scoring contest.

"And he does it at this level with the pressure and scrutiny", he added.

"Like him, I think he's said this, we're just focused - and it's the truth, it's not avoiding the question - we're literally focused on (the now)", Gilbert told ESPN. The Celtics have more playmakers and two-way players than the Cavaliers. He has quite simply turned a good team into a great one.

"I mean, I don't even know what to say about him anymore", Korver said. "The guys picked him up, so now he has another chance when we get to the finals to be ready". "I've learned so much", Tatum said. "We like our defense against these guys, and we feel confident that we can carry this through to Game 7 on the road and continue to make things as hard as possible on Houston without fouling".
