Super 8: LeBron muscles his way back to the Finals

Cavs Celtics live stream

LeBron James booked his eighth straight National Basketball Association finals appearance, delivering another epic game-seven performance on the road as the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied to beat the Boston Celtics 87-79 on Sunday.

"The pain is part of the path", said a disappointed Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

There's nothing like Game 7 in sports and tonight the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics play for the Eastern Conference Finals title and a ticket to the 2018 NBA Finals.

LeBron James was dominant as ever in Game 6, going off for a series-high 46 points and narrowly missing his second triple-double of the series.

A Herculean effort in the NBA Playoffs has seen LeBron lift the Cleveland Cavaliers to another NBA Finals appearance virtually off his own back.

And with a trip to the NBA Finals at stake on Sunday, Tatum elevated his play with one of his best playoff scoring games.

Sebastian Vettel admits that Daniel Ricciardo 'had all the answers'
I think he had a problem with his MGU-K, then it picked up towards the end again. "I was going through the tyres fairly quickly. Sebastian Vettel is under contract at Ferrari until the end of 2020 but team-mate Kimi Raikkonen's deal expires this season.

This might be his weakest supporting cast.

For the eighth season in a row, LeBron James will be playing in the NBA Finals.

And, after all, the Horford-driven Celtics did come very close to knocking off LeBron and making the damn NBA Finals.

"So, everybody knows, obviously what we want to happen and we'll take the Finals first and take it from there". "It's a Game 7", James said. It's a Game 7. "I thought that added to probably the shooting the rest of the game".

Green's 3-pointer with 4:56 left in the third quarter put Cleveland up 53-51, the Cavs' first lead since the opening minutes. "It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level with the pressure and the scrutiny. our goal was to make him exert as much energy as humanly possible".

Just like their opening-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Celtics have won three at home and lost three on the road in this series.

Real Madrid secure three-in-a-row as Gareth Bale punishes Liverpool
Before the game, I said I felt that Liverpool had to score first to win and they had their chances to do that in the first half. All of the focus will now be on Salah to see if he can be fit enough to play for Egypt at the World Cup this summer.

Next year, barring any offseason moves, the Celtics will trot out a lineup of Irving, Hayward, Tatum, Brown and Horford, with Rozier, Marcus Morris, Daniel Theis and should he re-sign in the offseason, Marcus Smart coming off the bench.

Meanwhile, rookie Jayson Tatum scored 24 points to lead the Celtics Sunday evening.

Jeff Green finished with 19 points and eight rebounds, J.R. Smith tallied 12 points and Tristan Thompson scored 10 for Cleveland who beat Boston 109-99 on Friday to force game seven.

At the podium, James said he hadn't processed the fact he is going back to the Finals.

"But what I've been telling the guys throughout the playoffs, as a team we are learning". James would return to the Cavaliers and then take them to their first championship two seasons ago, but it's believed that the two are still not on great terms.

"Yeah, I think I'll have plenty of time to talk about next year", Stevens said after the game.

Grandma sentenced to death for smuggling crystal meth
She was arrested back in 2014 for her crimes, and faced a mandatory death penalty in relation to Malaysia's strict drug laws. She was acquitted after the judge found she was scammed by her online boyfriend and was unaware she was carrying the drugs.

James led the Cavaliers in the first half with 17 points and 10 rebounds but they trailed for much of the half.
