James, Cavs KO Celts, set up rematch vs. Warriors

James, Cavs KO Celts, set up rematch vs. Warriors

The 5-foot-9 point guard had a career season, leading the NBA's Eastern Conference in scoring with 28.9 points per game and helping vault the Celtics into the East finals with several epic playoff performances.

"It has nothing to do with passing the rings, passing the points, passing MVPs", James said. [The Celtics are], like I told you guys before, it's like we're preparing for a whole new team.

Despite the challenge, the Cavs lead the Eastern Conference finals 3-1 and can close out the series with a Game 5 win at TD Garden on Thursday. He played three halves against the Cavaliers before limping off the court in the middle of Game 2. "In the case of occasional games where it's my job to be aggressive in all facets and keep us within the game and constantly stay in attack mode, we're quite a different team".

"We had eight draft picks and were trying to consolidate our picks to move up or out of the draft", Ainge said, via CBS Boston. In so doing, James increased his career postseason scoring total to 5,995 points, eclipsing Jordan's record tally of 5,987 points.

James finished the night with 5,995 playoff points, topping Jordan's mark of 5,987. Instead of Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder, there's Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant; Stephen Curry instead of Marcus Smart and Draymond Green instead of Al Horford.

James is already the NBA's all-time playoff leader in three-point attempts (971) and last night he passed Manu Ginobli (318) for third all-time in made treys with 319 three-pointers made in the postseason. The Celtics never had a single lead in the three home games in this series, with their only play that even remotely resembled the team that won 53 games coming at the Q in Cleveland.

You have some friends sometimes that want the best for you and they react to what they think is best. The state prosecution service said on Twitter the boy was killed "during a demonstration" there.

But the big question remains: Who is the greatest? The Cavs' starting five played the entire third quarter and outscored the Celtics 34-17. We can't turn the ball over that much because it leads to points. Without Thomas, none of the other options have much of a chance at creating their own shot, so the Cavaliers have to chase five guys around for nearly every possession.

. "I think maybe people just fail to realize that you just have two great teams and don't appreciate that". Every year Cleveland has been doubted and every year they take the series long, and yet it just feels impossible to pick against the Warriors.

It was a muted celebration in a road game, with the James three-pointer putting the defending National Basketball Association champion Cavs up by 32 points.

If the Cavaliers advance, James would be making a seventh consecutive trip to the NBA Finals. What if the 12-0 they've got going for them becomes 16-0? But in Game 3, the point can be made that everything that could have gone right for the Celtics, did go right.

"It's one of those things I have no control over, it is what it is", said Brown, filling in for the ailing Steve Kerr. We saw that in Game 4 when the Celtics staged a dramatic second-half comeback, and Brad Stevens drew up three plays out of timeouts in the final minute that his team scored on.
