Kevin Love placed in concussion protocol, listed as out for Game 7

Cavaliers Headlines Kevin Love placed in concussion protocol listed as out for Game 7

However, like everything else in this erratic, convoluted season for Cleveland, things changed quickly. 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. But he endured a scoreless first half, which put a spotlight on him after the Cavaliers separated a bit during the second quarter.

It was an extraordinary display which left Celtics coach Brad Stevens searching for answers.

Timing can be a unusual thing in sports, because people have continually said this is the worst team James has had around him since that last loss to the Celtics in 2010. "Obviously, they run a little less of the Love stuff and more of the other stuff". "All of them were very effective for them last night".

Getting past Boston, however, has proved to be a more hard task. But while Cleveland may be better defensively, Love's shot-making ability helps the Cavs spread the floor and open driving lanes for James.

"You know, Rudy Tomjanovich said, 'never underestimate the heart of a champion, '" Lue said before Game 6. LeBron then spent a minute recapping the tumultuous relationship he's had with sports media for years: "There's not many like you, I tell you". We miss his offensive ability.

LeBron James and Love have been two of the only constants for the Cavaliers. In Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern final, he went for 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists to keep the Miami Heat alive before they won Game 7 back home.

The 33-year-old has said several times since coming home in 2014 that he wants to retire with the Cavaliers, but fans are uneasy because he can opt out of his $35.6 million contract this summer and test free agency. He'll probably have to duplicate or surpass that Sunday for the Cavs to advance to a fourth-consecutive NBA Finals, because it's questionable whether the Cavs' second-leading scorer, Kevin Love, will even play in the game. On Friday night there was a room ready for the Boston Celtics to accept the Eastern Conference title, and once again, the Cavs shut it down.

Cavaliers: Improved to 6-2 in elimination game since 2015.

"I don't want to talk so much about [whether it's his last game in Cleveland], but I think just his performance was fantastic", Kyle Korver said.

For Love, the concussion is another setback in a tough season.

Already laboring to reach his eighth straight NBA Finals with a supporting crew made mostly of cast-offs and throw-ins, James lost the only other All-Star on the roster on Saturday when Kevin Love was declared out for the series finale with a concussion.
