On Wednesday LeBron James called "Game 7" the "best two words ever." The sporting city of Cleveland agrees. But given a vote Cavaliers fans may actually choose two different words: how about "LeBron James"? But why split hairs? The two are practically synonyms. Without LeBron James there is no pop to "Game 7" -- because it doesn't get played.
James scored 41 points for the second consecutive elimination game, and the Cavaliers emerged from Game 6 with a 115-101 win that sends the series back to Oakland for the finale. James did more than just score. He looked in every respect like a wall the Warriors just would not be able to scale -- not in Cleveland, not on this night. With the win, James raised his career record to 9-8 in elimination games. He's got one more this year. He does not want to have a .500 record (9-9) afterwards. As for going back to Golden State's gym? James said of the "best two words ever" that he'd "play it anywhere." Oakland's Oracle Arena then, Sunday 8pm ET.The BEST SALES on Amazon NOW ]
