Cavs' Game 6 victory over Celtics encouraging for Game 7

  • LeBron James

"That's the conversation I had with T-Lue", Green said.

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. Tatum's 3-pointer after a James turnover put Boston back out front 72-71 with 6 minutes, 4 seconds to play.

Jayson Tatum threw down an impressive dunk on LeBron James in the Boston Celtics' series finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Ambien maker to Roseanne: 'Racism is not a known side effect'
I feel so empowered by @IAmWandaSykes, Channing Dungey and anyone at ABC standing up for morals and abuse of power. Barr replied early Wednesday morning, writing, "I created the platform for that inclusivity and you know it.ME".

James played all 48 minutes of the game, scoring 35 points while recording 15 rebounds and nine assists.

Love made the trip to Boston and was in attendance Sunday night. Love shot below 40 percent from the field again previous year, averaging 16.0 points and 11.2 rebounds per game.

In Cleveland, the Cavs have faced the Golden State Warriors in the Finals in the past three seasons.

Euro rallies on developments in Italy
But the stance to block eurosceptic economy minister Paolo Savona boosted sentiment towards the currency. Salvini and Di Maio had met Mattarella informally on Sunday to try to find a solution.

Throughout the season we saw superstars shoulder the load carry their team, deliver game winners and come through when it counted. The veteran forward responded with 19 points, including the final go-ahead 3-point shot in the fourth quarter of the contest, while providing enough versatility on defense for Cleveland to switch every screen. "The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is you always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7".

Cleveland owned the seventh-best record in the Association on February 6 at 30-22 but was losers of 13 of its last 20 games at the time - a stretch which included six defeats in seven outings from January 8-23.

Not seeding Serena in Paris wrong, says Evert
Maria Sharapova is back in the top 30 and guaranteed a seeded place when the 2018 French Open starts on Sunday. 'Consequently, (the seeds) will reflect this week's world ranking'.

"Best player in the game", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after Friday's game. We were in really good shape, really good shape - and then we just couldn't quite extend the lead. Nobody had ever overcome that deficit in the championship round, and Cleveland had to do it against a team that had won an NBA-record 73 games. I just go out and play my game.
