NBA Playoffs 2018: Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 7 score, series results, TV channel, online stream
LeBron James and the Cavaliers are headed back to the NBA Finals
Well folks, that was what we call a series. The Cleveland Cavaliers finished off the Boston Celtics with a Game 7 win, earning a fourth consecutive NBA Finals trip. LeBron James will be making his eighth straight Finals appearance, and he was nothing short of spectacular against the Celtics all series.
Cleveland dealt with chaos throughout the regular season -- including unloading half of its roster at the trade deadline -- while Boston had injuries to the two players expected to lead them through the East. Where LeBron James is still playing like LeBron James, the Celtics have found heroics from unexpected places throughout these playoffs, specifically rookie Jayson Tatum.
The Celtics and the Cavaliers survived the Bucks and the Pacers -- respectively -- with both of those first-round series going to seven games. They then steamrolled their Conference Semifinal match-ups, with the Celtics halting The Process in just five games and the Cavaliers banishing the Raptors (again) in a sweep.
Here's what you need to know about the series.
