Like clockwork, LeBron James is heading back to the NBA Finals, this time for an eighth-straight year.
The spirited Boston Celtics made things tough in Game 7, but LeBron and the Cavs found another gear to close out things out down the stretch, marking another signature playoff game for James.
LeBron was immense all game, playing all 48 minutes and posting 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists (all highs for the Cavs).
Jayson Tatum dunked on LeBron and then hit a 3 on the next possession to put the Celtics up 72-71 with 6:04 left.- ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) May 28, 2018
After that point, it was all Cavs, and LeBron had the last laugh. pic.twitter.com/5obwoFFith
He scored or assisted on 21 of Cleveland's 30 field goals and had everyone from Kobe Bryant to Joel Embiid in awe of what they were seeing.

With the endless comparisons to Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant weighed in on the G.O.A.T. debate:
We can enjoy one without tearing down one. I love what he's doing. Don't debate what can't be definitively won by anyone #enjoymy5 #enjoymj6 #enjoylbjquest- Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) May 28, 2018
