LeBron James has earned a spot in his eighth consecutive National Basketball Association finals after leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a thrilling series victory over the Boston Celtics.

They ended up making a huge, blockbuster deal which made them a much younger, more athletic team.

LeBron James made sure of it.

With his Cavaliers on the brink of elimination, many have begun to speculate that a loss on Friday night to the Celtics would mark the end of the reign of King James in Cleveland. 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.

And nowhere does Cleveland sink to the occasion more than in Boston, where, to the contrary, the team from Beantown is 10-0 this postseason.

Things turned for good in the second quarter, when the Celtics could only manage 18 points. Of all the Celtics, Morris will likely benefit the most when it comes to being at home.

The Celtics ended up finishing with 55 wins and the second best record int he Eastern Conference. Kyrie Irving has as well, but Irving is sidelined for the season with a left knee injury. While many believed they would crumble in the first round of the playoffs, the Celtics proceeded to take down the Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Game 7 of the series is Sunday night in Boston, with the victor meeting either Houston or Golden State in the National Basketball Association Finals.

With that in mind, Celtics.com asked Brad Stevens before tip-off what the key is to the C's pushing that thought out of their minds and playing strictly for tonight. "They're resilient, no matter who's been in the lineup, no matter the different type of lineups we've had throughout the course of the postseason or even the regular season, we're just trying to find an ability to win". The Cavs will meet the victor of Monday's Game 7 in the Western Conference between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, with Game 1 of the NBA Finals coming on Thursday, May 31. LeBron James - who else - led the way with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. And even he has struggled to play that sidekick role.

Terry Rozier III and the Celtics were able to cut their deficit to seven but they just couldn't get over the hump and overcome their second quarter woes, as the Cavaliers go onto to win, 109-99, to force a Game 7 in Boston on Sunday night. Other players like J.R. Smith, George Hill, Tristan Thompson, and Kyle Korver were inconsistent as well.

LeBron James writhes in pain on the floor after suffering a suspected knee injury in the final quarter of the game.

The Cavaliers will take on either the reigning champions Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets in the championship series.

The Cavaliers are expected to be underdogs against either.

If Lebron were to go out west, the run in the east would obviously be over.

It's not the one they want. He played all but two minutes, finishing one assist shy of a triple double.
