The Cleveland Cavaliers outlasted the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals by a final score of 109-99. LeBron James took over, dumping in 46 points en route to a series-tying win.

James had to take over after Kevin Love went down early. Love collided with Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum and did not return to the floor.

He's now been ruled out for Game 7 on Sunday night.

The Cavaliers announced the news.

Love is reportedly experiencing concussion-like symptoms and will be forced to sit out for the series finale.

It's a huge blow to the Cavs as Love has produced well for the team this postseason. He was averaging 13.9 points and 10 rebounds per game during the 2017-18 playoffs.

LeBron will have to take over just like he did in Game 7 for the Cavs to have a chance.

Game 7 between the Celtics and Cavaliers is set for Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
