Dan Gilbert Staying In The Present As Cavs Advance To Finals

Stephen Curry urged others to not "disrespect" the Cleveland Cavaliers' supporting cast while LeBron James nearly singlehandedly led them to the NBA Finals.

James will be making his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance.

Moments after Game 7 ended on Sunday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers gathered around a table in the bowels of TD Garden, waiting for the Eastern Conference Finals trophy to be given out.

"I think what people don't understand, people that never played the game of basketball and never played team sports, is that in order to succeed, it has to be a team effort".

His eighth straight NBA Finals sets up as one of his most hard, flanked by a largely unheralded set of teammates who force him to do much more at 33 than most other players are ever asked. "That's how loud we need them to be at Game 7", Green said. There is no "bouncing back" or "we'll get 'em next time".

James played all 82 regular-season games for the first time in his career and is already at 100 for the year with at least four more to come. He has a plus-minus ratio of positive-10 the last three games.

James said that he'd hardly even processed the Cavaliers' accomplishment yet. "We need them to be the loudest they've ever been". "I think we've played now until May 25 and May 27 the last two years, and we started on September 25".

The Cavaliers are expected to be underdogs against either.

James said this has felt like six seasons in one. "As soon as we know, we'll say it, but we might not know until the afternoon (when we) see how it goes or he tests it out".

The vast majority of voters did not change their minds on how they planned to vote during the campaign, the exit poll suggested. Leo Varadkar accused campaigners opposing a referendum on liberalising Ireland's abortion regime of trying to dupe voters.

James played all 48 minutes of the game, scoring 35 points while recording 15 rebounds and nine assists.

James dropped 17 points and went 6-of-12 from the field in the first half, scoring almost half of Clevelands first half points.

Speaking after the heartbreaking loss, head coach Brad Stevens hailed the fight put up by his young Celtics side who were without star men Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving for their remarkable playoff run.

"It's been a satisfaction in the fact that I like to be successful", James said when asked about his continued dominance of the Eastern Conference. "He's one of the best point guards in the league, but if he doesn't play, we'll figure it out".

LeBron James has reached the NBA Finals in eight straight seasons, including four in a row with Cleveland.

This might be his weakest supporting cast. Love missed Game 7 of the conference finals after suffering a concussion in Game 6.

"This whole year he led by example", Lue said. Cleveland played an imperfect game - it shot 9 for 35 from 3-point range and had five total bench points - but wound up with an 87-79 victory, advancing to the NBA Finals yet again. "So he was down, but the guys picked him up, so now he has another chance when we get to the Finals to be ready". With the rookie Tatum and second-year Jaylen Brown, Boston established itself as the team of the future in the East.

"As much as I was passing in the first half and guys weren't knocking them down, I believed in the second half they would", James said.
