Warriors coach Steve Kerr not yet ready to return to bench
Internal improvement will help the Celtics on this front, but an offense predicated on hitting open 3s needs players who can reliably knock them down against a defense that has plenty of holes. Turns out Irving was just getting warmed up en route to scorching."Very unstoppable", is the way Lue described Irving.NBA All-Star and Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas has a decision to make as to whether to undergo surgery.The Cavaliers outscored the Celtics 65-42 in the second half, thanks to Irving's playoff career high in points.
LeBron James and the defending champion Cavaliers are headed back to the NBA Finals. "With that being said, tonight I'll start my prepping, and we'll see what happens". "I think I fell in love with the game because of Michael, just seeing what he was able to accomplish", James said.
James needed 28 points to surpass Jordan (5,987 points), as he entered Game Five of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics and reached the milestone in style late in the third quarter with a three-point jump shot.
James scored 35 points and added eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals, and Kyrie Irving posted 24 points.
Aside from a Game 3 upset after losing Thomas to a hip injury, the Celtics lost by margins of 13, 44, 13, and 33 points.
At that point, the Celtics also have decisions looming on Marcus Smart (who will be a restricted free agent if he does not sign an extension this offseason) and Avery Bradley, another bargain for Boston at $8.8 million. "I told our guys: 'We made a lot of great strides, but this pain is part of the path to what we ultimately want to be'".
The Warriors under Kerr finished the regular season with a league-best 67-15 mark, earning the No. 1 overall seed for the playoffs.
There were two firsts in last night's Eastern Conference championship game. Their 10th straight victory in a potential series-clinching game sent LeBron James (and seldom-used teammate James Jones) to a record seventh straight NBA Finals.
The Cavaliers and Warriors split their two meetings this season, both winning at home. The story lines are plenty, including a few fresh ones, such as acting Golden State coach Mike Brown going against the team he coached not once but twice.
"They care about my health, not just being a basketball player", Thomas said. They just didn't have defensive personnel to slow down a well-balanced, fast paced Cleveland offense; they couldn't rebound and, simply put, they were vastly outmatched by a superior team.
"They made it this far". With LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant all in their primes, it seems entirely possible the historical streak will have legs for more years to come.
"I'm glad he finally admitted that he owes me money because for many years he wouldn't admit that he owed me money".
This will be a match-up of some of the greatest players ever to step foot on a basketball court.
Bradley promised that the Celtics would be better in 2017-18.
"We came a long way this year", Celtics forward Al Horford said following the season ending defeat.
