James says Jordan chase is about motivation, not greatness

James says Jordan chase is about motivation, not greatness

The Cavs led 43-27 after the first quarter and built their lead to 23 points when Love hit two free throws with 7:00 left in the second quarter.

Signing him to such a deal, however, would come with serious risks. Savvy investors know to stick with known quantities like Kyrie Irving, a proven champion who fended off the men in green with a playoff career-high 42 points that included 9-for-10 shooting in the third quarter. James entered Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics needing 28 points to eclipse the Chicago Bulls legend's 5,987 career playoff points.

That's right. Kyrie Irving was not considered one of the top 15 players in the National Basketball Association this season. The famed United Kingdom sportsbook has posted its odds ahead of Game 5 and bettors have an excellent chance to win some lucrative cash with the home team.

She told ITV's Loose Women, on which she is a regular panellist: "I was so lucky". She said: "I hope that change comes from this".


Kyrie Irving added 24 points and Kevin Love finished with 15 for the Cavs, who never trailed and led by as many as 39 points in one of their most dominating wins of the series. But otherwise, they've been among the NBA's 10 best players each year of this decade.

So far this playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers have averaged 116 points per game. Isaiah (Thomas) goes down and they're running a totally different offense than we prepared for so it's been tough on us. But if this series has become a chess match, the move is once again Brad Stevens' as Tyronn Lue and the Cavs countered.

LeBron James delved into a bit of hyperbole when he said, "I feel some adversity is part of the postseason. This is probably hands down the best team that I've ever played with and probably will play with if we all stay together". He already has nearly 2,000 more career playoff points than the next-closest active player, Tony Parker (4,012), so it will be a long time before anyone thinks about knocking James off the top of that list. Unfortunately for the C's, they got sloppy in the third, turning it over six times. 43 points set a Cavs playoff record for the most points scored in a quarter. Cleveland left them to 13 points unanswered for. You just have a choice to make, and it has to be a fearless approach. In game one the Cavaliers' dominance in the paint had very little to do with transition. The good news is that just when it looked like this series was going to be 2-2 heading back to Boston, Cleveland found a way to win and now can close things out tonight in Game 5. Despite the fact that the Cavs will be underdogs in that potential series, Lue believes that the offense of the team's current opponent, the Boston Celtics, has an offense that's more hard to plan for than that of the high-powered Warriors. But here we are. His outlet passes have been simply tremendous (even if LeBron missed a dunk on one of them last game) and he certainly seems locked in and ready for the Finals.
