Watch LeBron James Hit 2 Dagger 3s over Jayson Tatum to Seal Cavaliers Win

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistMay 26, 2018

With his Cleveland Cavaliers facing elimination and his string of seven consecutive trips to the NBA Finals in jeopardy, LeBron James was on a mission Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

James carried his team to a 109-99 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals by going off for 46 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and three steals.

He went 17-of-33 from the floor and 5-of-7 from beyond the arc, and no shots were bigger than the dagger threes the 6'8", 250-pound superstar shot over Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum late in the fourth.

Now that's how to defend The Land.          

The series now shifts back to Boston's TD Garden for a winner-take-all Game 7 on Sunday night.
