Game 7 of the series is Sunday night in Boston, with the victor meeting either Houston or Golden State in the NBA Finals.
James, who has the highest scoring average in elimination games in National Basketball Association history at 34.1 points per game, has won his past five Game 7s, including the first round this season against the Indiana Pacers.
Boston held its own with the Cavs for most of the third quarter, but that won't cut it when looking at a double-digit lead Cleveland refused to relinquish. I mean, best player in the game. The Rockets lead the Western Conference finals 3-2.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) shoots the ball against Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris (13) during the first quarter in game six of the Eastern conference finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena. He left the game with 6:58 left and did not return.

James, playing in perhaps his final game for the Cavs in Cleveland, delivered another sensational performance - he added 11 rebounds and nine assists while playing all but two minutes - to avoid elimination and delay any decisions about his future.
"Yeah, every time we watch".
He was especially aggressive in the first half, when he piled up 25 points to help Cleveland build a double-digit lead.
James hobbled around but stayed in the game, and scored 14 points in the fourth. Hill is shooting just 31 percent and averaging 5.0 points in the three losses in Boston this series.
