Game 7 of the Eastern Conference went to the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, 87-79.
It’s the eight straight championship series LeBron James will be playing in.
“It’s been a satisfaction in the fact that I like to be successful. But more importantly, just the work that I put into it. I mean, it’s an every-single-day work ethic that I have while I’m playing this game, while I have the ability to play this game at this level. I love the competition.” James said.
Last night James scored 35 points, pulled down 15 rebounds and handed out 9 assists.
It should be noted that James played all 48 minutes. Rest? That’s a good one…
“He leads by example. Every day. He brings it every night,” said Jeff Green on what he learned from LeBron James.
The Cavaliers now await tonight’s Game 7 Western conference finals winner between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.
The championship begins this Thursday night.
