Kevin Love will have to pass more tests before he will be cleared to play again after leaving Friday's Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals following a head-to-head collision with Boston's Jayson Tatum, according to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.

Cleveland forced a winner-take-all showdown behind another legendary performance from the four-time NBA MVP, who went off for 46 points (17-of-33 from the floor, 5-of-7 from beyond the arc), 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals Friday night.

"'Game seven' is the best two words in sports and for us to be on the road in another hostile environment where we've had no success up to this point, we should relish the opportunity".

Wounded and worn out, LeBron James put in a superhuman performance that was extraordinary even for his standards to carry the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory over the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The Rockets take a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in Oakland.

Love has suffered at least two concussions prior concussions - one knocked him out of Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals and another kept him out of a regular-season game on March 28.

The Celtics got off to a strong start, in part due to Jaylen Brown's 15-point first quarter. Love's status for Game 7 is uncertain.

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. Green scored 14 points off the bench and made several crucial defensive plays while filling in at center.

That second one had James going - he knew the game was sealed. He finished with 46 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, that included two incredible dagger 3-pointers in the final minutes. Oh, and he played 46 minutes and only had three turnovers.

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 are 23-8all-time in Game 7s and 20-4 at home.
