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

"That's the conversation I had with T-Lue", Green said. "This (Boston) team was undefeated in the postseason at home, and for us to be able to do this, and for me to be able to lead these guys, it's a treat".

For Green, at stake is a chance to play in the NBA Finals for the first time in his 10-year career.

Still down four points with almost seven minutes left in the game, Tatum chose to take things into his own hands. It matched Game 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals: the Miami Heat and LeBron James vs. the Boston Celtics. James was his usual Game 7 self, dropping 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks in a complete game performance.

Love is grabbing 10.0 rebounds per game, and he's had a few moments in which he's looked like the player that made the All-Star team.

Last season, Kevin Durant and the Warriors dominated Cleveland in five games to win their second championship in three years.

"We said we want to do this for Kevin, " Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

Kyrie Irving missed the entire play-offs through injury. In fact, James posted 12 points, four assists and three rebounds in the fourth quarter alone.

Two Palestinian militants killed by Israeli fire in Gaza Strip
The Gazan health ministry identified those killed as Hussein al-Amour, 25, and Abdul Haleem al-Naqa, 28. No injuries were reported either from local sources or the IDF .

The network's impressive ECF has been matched by TNT's broadcast of the Western Conference Finals, which was up 33 percent from a year ago heading into Golden State's Game 7 win over Houston on Monday night.

While the Cavs are clearly the underdogs ahead of their fourth final in a row against Golden State, Thomas believes LeBron doesn't have to win another title to prove he's better than Jordan.

"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.

"As we talked about all year, tomorrow night is not going to be ideal".

But the Celtics couldn't get 3-pointers to fall, and Cleveland slowly chipped their way back into it. James got 3-pointers from J.R. Smith and Jeff Green, and by the time halftime rolled around, Boston's lead was down to 43-39.

"It was asked of me tonight to play the whole game, and I just tried to figure out how I could get through it", said James, who played 48 minutes for the first time in a playoff game since 2006 as a 21-year-old against the Detroit Pistons.

Both teams rallied from 3-2 series deficits in the conference finals.
