Cleveland Cavaliers Star Kevin Love Ruled Out For Game 7

Cleveland Cavaliers Star Kevin Love Ruled Out For Game 7

The team said on Saturday that Love, who bashed heads with the Boston rookie Jayson Tatum in the first half of Cleveland's Game 6 win on Friday night, experienced concussion-like symptoms before the team's flight and has been placed in the N.B.A.'s concussion protocol.

We can point to his 46 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists Friday night in a win-or-go-fishing elimination game. In Game 7 in Miami, James had 31 points and 12 boards as the Heat won the series en route to the NBA Championship.

Trailing the Celtics 3-2 and facing elimination in the Eastern Conference finals, the Cavaliers triumphed in a bruising encounter on their home floor to knot the best-of-seven series at 3-3 and force game seven in Boston on Sunday.

There's a lot to criticize LeBron for and many of us still sting at the memory of his ill-considered navel gazing "The Decision" back in 2019 when he fled to the warmer climates literally and figuratively of the Miami Heat. "He delivered. He carried us home as usual". "Our second quarter, guys that came off the bench - Jordan [Clarkson], Jeff [Green], Kyle [Korver] and Larry [Nance Jr] - just gave us a huge boost". We needed that, especially with Kevin going down.

Following Game 6, Love told a reporter it was "a toss-up" whether he would be able to face the Celtics. Seventeen of those points came in the second quarter, when he made his first three 3-pointers of the game and attempted his first six free throws. As they've struggled in Boston, he repeatedly set the tone as they've won their three home games.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue did not know if he would have his second-best player for the season's biggest game as the Cavs try to win their fourth straight conference title.

Continuing the series' weird home/road differences, George Hill gave the Cavs an injection of playmaking.

It was an extraordinary display which left Celtics coach Brad Stevens searching for answers. "We just wanted to be that team tonight".

"I had my moments, but I think everybody at this point is exhausted, worn down whatever the case may be", he said.

"It's a Game 7", James said after Game 6.

"Everybody's anxious after you get beat", Stevens said.

Through these playoffs, the 33-year-old James has averaged 46.1 minutes per game - six minutes greater than the next closest player (Boston's Terry Rozier, 39.7).

The Celtics know they have a big challenge in front of them, with James looking to take his team to the NBA Finals for the eighth straight season.
