Stevens' Boston Celtics lost Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-99 on Friday night.

LeBron James (46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists) was dominant as ever, but it was the Cavaliers role players that really won this game for Cleveland.

Jayson Tatum - who scored 27 - got Boston within seven with a slam dunk in the fourth quarter but three consecutive three-pointers from James saw out the victory and the Cavs' eighth straight win at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The Celtics had been a spotless 10-0 this postseason at TD Garden before James & Co. delivered a lone season-ending blemish.

Within the first shut sport of the collection - and the lowest-scoring - James performed all 48 minutes and had 12 of his factors within the fourth quarter for his sixth straight Recreation 7 win.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens considered changing his starting lineup, but chose to stick with the same first five - Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Al Horford, and Terry Rozier - as the first three games. He is 33 years old and there are no signs of Lebron James slowing down anytime soon, even in his 15th National Basketball Association season.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", said Lue. It was the most he has scored in an elimination game and only three points shy of his playoff career high of 49.

"I'm for sure going to find a Chipotle in Boston, I'll tell you that", he said.

Brown poured in 15 points as the Celtics took a 25-20 lead after the first period, which was just the start they were looking for after falling behind by 15 after one in Game 3 and by 16 in Game 4.

One more time Friday night, perhaps one last time, an adoring audience of 20,562 returned the love.

"I didn't think we were great in either game - bad in Game 3".

"The great quote from the great Doc Rivers is, 'You always want to go into the Game 7 with the best player, ' and we have the best player on our team going into a Game 7".

Larry Nance Jr. was key to the Cavaliers' performance off the bench logging big minutes when Kevin Love went down with an injury seven minutes in.

The victor will meet Houston Rockets or Golden State Warriors.

Horford said of James' overall performance, "It's one of those things that I've got to tip my hat off to him".

"It's a heck of an accomplishment for our ball club to (to win) without our All Star forward for basically two games". The San Francisco 49ers cornerback took to Twitter after the game to proclaim it was "obvious" the referees wanted the Cavs to force a Game 7.

Cavaliers: Shot just 2 of 17 from 3-point range in the first half, making three of their first 22 shots from long range before James and Green connected on back-to-back attempts midway through the third quarter. "You've got to find a way, whatever it takes". LeBron with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.
