LeBron James had 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists to send the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the 4th straight NBA Finals after an 87-79 win against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday night.
This victory put Cavaliers in the history books as they join HEATS, CELTICS AND LAKERS as the only four teams that have qualified for four straight NBA FINALS.
James has reached the NBA Finals in eight straight seasons, including four in a row with Cleveland. Only Russell (10), Heinsohn (9) and Sam Jones (9) have made more consecutive appearances in NBA history.
THE NBA FINALS
The Cavaliers will be waiting for the winner of Western Conference Finals between Houston and Golden State which will take place in the early hours of Tuesday morning (1am Nigerian Time).Obviously Cavaliers will love to play the Rockets, that will provide them a new challenge because they faced the Warriors in their last three consecutive NBA Finals, they lost twice (2015 and 2017) and won in 2016 after they came from the 3-1 down.
