Kevin Love on status for Game 7: 'Toss-up'

LeBron James had another unbelievable performance to help the Cavaliers force a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference finals.

George Hill enjoyed his best game of the series for the Cavaliers with 20 points, while reserve Jeff Green chipped in 14 and Larry Nance Jr. hit for 10 points.

Cleveland led by as many as 16 in the third quarter, but the advantage was down to seven with 2:47 to play when James unleased back-to-back three-pointers and converted a layup to push the Cavs lead back to 109-96.

According to Lloyd, Love says his status for the winner-take-all-game is a "toss-up" after he spent the majority of Game 6 in the locker room being evaluated for a concussion. He played the game's first 35 minutes before resting, expending enormous energy to keep the Cavs alive.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens could only chuckle when asked if it ever comes into his mind that his team is facing a generational talent like James.

Kevin Love was not diagnosed with a concussion nor placed in the league's protocol in the first few hours after his nasty collision with Jayson Tatum, but all of that could still change.

- The Celtics outshot the Cavs from the field and from 3-point range in Game 6, but the Cavs won the turnover battle (14-11), outrebounded the C's (44-31), had more fastbreak points (14-9), more points in the paint (46-42) and more bench points (36-23).

That second one had James going - he knew the game was sealed. Every time you're standing out there, every time you watch him on film. Overall, Boston was efficient, shooting 51.4 percent from the floor and also managed to convert 42.9 percent of their three-point opportunities.

Boston was led by Terry Rozier's 28 points and Jaylen Brown who had 27.

Boston's struggles in the first half boiled down to them being too predictable offensively following a 3-pointer by Marcus Smart that increased the Celtics' lead to 30-24.

The Celtics have lost just one game in front of their home crowd in these playoffs.
