Cavs defeat Celtics, force Game 7

By Amber Lee

The Eastern Conference Finals are going to a Game 7. The Cavaliers saved their season for a just few more days after a 109-96 win at home against the Celtics.

LeBron James led all scorers with 46 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals, and a block. James also went 5-7 from three, including back to back threes late in the fourth quarter that propelled the Cavaliers to victory.

Jeff Green also had a good game off the bench, putting up 14 points.

Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier, and Jaylen Brown combined for 70 points but it wasn’t enough for the Celtics. Al Horford only had 6 points and Boston needs him to perform to win, period.

Marcus Smart was a defensive force tonight as usual and accompanied him 10 points with 8 assists.

Game 7 can go either way. The Cavaliers are playing good team basketball, even though some of their players are showing fatigue.

The jury is still out on Kevin Love, however, who left Game 6 earlier with an apparent head injury.
