Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens saw his team get reduced to a bundle of individuals all ill-equipped to handle the destructive basketball force that is LeBron James Friday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers carved out a 109-99 win at home to keep their title hopes alive.

Following the game, Stevens tried to sum up James’ performance from his perspective, saying that the Cavs’ superstar is “the best player in the game,” per Keith Smith of Real GM.

After seeing James bludgeon the Celtics with 46 points to go with 11 rebounds, nine assists, three steals, and a block, while shooting 17-for-33 from the field in 46 minutes of what amounts to be a basketball clinic in annihilating the opponent, Stevens understandably was just lost for words in trying to describe what James just did to his team.

Stevens is considered as having one of the best minds in basketball today, but even he could not design a sound and effective plan to take James out of the equation. So far in the series, James is averaging 33.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game.

Still, Stevens and the Celtics have one more chance to foil James’ plan of making yet another return trip to the NBA Finals this Sunday, when Boston hosts the Cavs for an all-important Game 7 matchup.
