National Basketball Association community reacts to LeBron's Game 7 performance vs. Celtics

'The Cavs are a living experiment in how many awful players you can put around LeBron before he can't make the finals, ' one Twitter user wrote. "That's all that matters".

As his 2007 appearance stands alone, James is now running a hot streak of 8 straight Finals appearances, 4 straight each between his stints with the Cavs since 2015 and the Miami Heat from 2011-2014.

After James carried the Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals, he barely acknowledged the team's owner following an 87-79 Game 7 win on Sunday night over the Celtics.

And the Cavaliers will need every bit of it.

The Celtics saw their run of 10 straight home playoff games without a loss snapped in gut-wrenching fashion as their defensive passion was not matched with offensive execution throughout the final three quarters. That means the victor between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics will move on to compete for an National Basketball Association title, while the other team goes home.

Not much has changed in three years, other than James' receding hairline.

The Celtics have seen him do it, after he averaged 33.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.4 assists to eliminate them in the East finals for the second straight year. "It's ridiculous and he does it with the pressure and scrutiny".

And even after the Cavaliers remade their team at the February trade deadline, it didn't look good enough.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. They've rightfully earned their status as favorite for Game 7, if for no other reason than their impressive 10-0 record at home in the postseason. I liked our chances. He also had eight turnovers, though, and didn't even come out for halftime warmups because he wanted to use his time "to recalibrate and catch my wind again", he said.

The young Celtics were in control for most of the way before falling apart in the final period.

"I know I get a lot of the headlines but in order to be successful it's a team game, I learnt that". In the regular season, the Cavs had the point differential of a 44-win team, but managed to get to 50 because James is phenomenal in crunch time. "For the most part, I thought we were pretty good at that. but he still scored 35".
