Another NBA Finals brings another huge challenge for LeBron

Another NBA Finals brings another huge challenge for LeBron

Monday night, downtown will be insane again for another Game 7 as the Rockets look to beat the defending World Champion Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.

"Shoutout to him, it was an awesome performance, but don't disrespect the other guys out there", Curry added. "I just know he's built for stardom".

"I just love everything about the kid, the way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from", James said. His first-quarter outburst helped Boston build an early 12-point lead and Tatum briefly helped the Celtics rally ahead in the fourth quarter before James assured his eighth straight trip to the Finals.

According to a May 28 report by Hollywood Life, LeBron James played his heart out on the court in Boston on Sunday.

"Our goal going into the series was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible and try to be as good as we can on everybody else, who are good players".

Terry Rozier, however, is not one to back out of the challenge.

"We've been counted out for a long time this season", added James. LeBron James is impressed.

"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.

The Warriors had some success with an ultra-small lineup that unleashed Curry, but as soon as non-shooters were on the floor - Kevon Looney, Jordon Bell, and the Rockets were daring Draymond Green and Shaun Livingston to shoot - Houston shrunk the floor and took away passing lanes, plus contested every shot.

James led the Cavaliers in the first half with 17 points and 10 rebounds but they trailed for much of the half in front of a crowd of 18,600 at the Boston Garden.

"We just didn't want to go out like that", Thompson said, "we wanted to force Game 7 so badly".

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. It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny - doesn't matter. "So I think once we settled down and we got the defense in a better position, then we started moving the ball, and the game felt more like a Warriors game". "I guess this is the last chapter for our team in this season. I thought that was a real key tonight". We're a confident group.

The Warriors are the defending champs and have been to the Finals three straight years, with two titles. "But he's doing everything he can to get out on the floor", Kerr said on Sunday at the team hotel.
