Kevin Love’s Injury Status Updated Ahead of Game 1 of NBA Finals

Kevin Love has been ruled out of Game 7 between the Cavs and Celtics

Lebron James led his team, Cleveland Cavaliers, to an away victory over Boston Celtics 87-79 at the Eastern Conference playoff on Monday. It's not even a question as to whether LeBron James will amaze when he's needed the most, it's just a matter of whether he can top his previous greatness. "I'll say it again; he'll never have a greater achievement".

OAKLAND, Calif. - For the second time in the last four years, the Cleveland Cavaliers enter the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors without All-Star Kevin Love as a lock to play in Game 1.

While The King doubted a return to these NBA Finals, it's ultimately his perseverance that has driven him to this re-re-re-match with the Golden State Warriors, having carried this team from a four-seed in the East to the promise land.

Yeah, this probably wasn't the best time to have a frightful shooting night. In an often ugly, defense-dominated game, the Celtics shot just 18% from the 3-point line (7-for-39), and lost at home for the first time this postseason. As the Cavaliers struggled to find any semblance of consistency, superstar LeBron James wondered whether a playoff berth was even in the cards.

The Cavs recorded an 87-79 win to send them through to their fourth straight National Basketball Association finals. In Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern final, he went for 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists to keep the Miami Heat alive before they won Game 7 back home. There were many rumored reasons as to why Kyrie wanted to get out of Cleveland as quick as possible, including Irving becoming frustrated playing in LeBron James' shadow, and wanting to lead his own team as the face of the franchise.

He finished the game one assist shy of a triple-double, scoring 35 points while adding 15 rebounds - a game-high in either stat.

There is no doubt these young Celtics grew a tremendous amount in these playoffs, and here are three things they got out of this run that will benefit them as early as next season.

James also had some kind words for veteran big man Al Horford, as well. Marcus Morris became a reliable reserve on both ends of the court.

"We just couldn't quite knock them down, and to no fault of anybody". The Boston Celtics on the other side of this result are ready to contend for a while.

He's going to have to keep doing that for a couple of more games, at least.
