LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals after outlasting the Boston Celtics in game seven of the Eastern Conference finals.
James continued his dominance on Sunday, leading the Cavaliers to an 87-79 victory over the Celtics in Boston as Cleveland earned their fourth successive trip to the Finals.
Cavs superstar James scored a game-high 35 points with 15 rebounds and nine assists to see Cleveland clinch a 4-3 series win.
Elite in all facets of the game, James controlled the tempo and stepped up defensively to stop Boston's young, athletic line-up at TD Garden.
Playing without Kevin Love, the Cavaliers rallied back from an eight-point first-quarter deficit. Jeff Green started in Love's place and scored 19 points. J.R. Smith added 12 points.
Jayson Tatum led the Celtics with 24 points, but Boston did not do enough offensively to stop James and the Cavs, who await the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets.
