LeBron just wants rest after Cavs' game-seven win over Pacers
LeBron James has earned a rest, and he intends on taking it after leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to the second round of the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs.
It was another inspirational performance from James, who scored a game-high 45 points to help sink the Indiana Pacers 105-101 in game seven on Sunday.
Next up for James and the Cavaliers are the Toronto Raptors.
"I'm burnt right now," James said after the series-clinching win. "I'm not thinking about Toronto right now, not until [Monday].
"I'm ready to go home. I'm tired. I want to go home."
James outscored the rest of Cleveland's starting line-up combined Sunday, continuing his unrivalled playoff form.
Trying to lead the Cavaliers to their fourth straight NBA Finals, James is going to need some rest and some help from team-mates to get the job done.
The Cavaliers face top-seeded Toronto in game one on Tuesday.
