Kyrie Irving Proved He's Ready to Take the Throne
It's tough to say that we didn't expect it. Maybe even death and taxes aren't certain anymore; science, medicine, global warming, politics throwing everything up in the air.
Finally, while a traditional NBA League Pass package is no longer available for purchase, there is NBA League Pass Audio. The Cavaliers won 112-99 and now the Celtics are facing elimination for the second time this postseason. And the National Basketball Association desperately needs that to happen.
Yes, James did great things with the Miami Heat in winning two titles in four Finals trips with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, but winning one title with the Cavaliers is a bigger accomplishment than winning those two with the Heat.
Out since April 23, when he announced he was taking a leave of absence to address chronic pain in the wake of multiple back surgeries almost two years ago, Kerr has been a constant presence the past two weeks but not on the bench during games.
Still, the Spurs were hardly able to give Golden State any trouble at all, and that doesn't bode well for Cleveland. And I feel the same way.
"I've played against four Hall of Famers as well, too, with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team", said James, occasionally sniffling as he continues to fight a cold.
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. Tristen Thompson has learned to shoot free throws and still tosses bodies around under the rim.
The Cavs coasted-and that's being polite-through the regular season before flipping the switch and going 12-1 in the Eastern conference playoffs.
"Honestly we didn't want IT to go down", Irving said.
But they also showed how badly they need him.
Well, even if James may be playing possum with his compliments for the Warriors, he isn't wrong.
So now the question is simple, will Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and the rest of the Golden State Warriors claim their second championship in three seasons, or will the Cavaliers win back-to-back championships, and can LeBron James bring another title to his home state while solidifying himself as one of the best to ever play the game?
Boston CelticsGame 3 (live stream online and score here) in the 2017 NBA Playoffs resumes tonight with the Cavs leading the Eastern Conference Finals series 2-0.
Notes: Center Zaza Pachulia, who missed Games 3 and 4 at San Antonio in the Western Conference finals with a bruised right heel, is back going through full practices in preparation to play in his first career Finals. "But it doesn't mean anything going into the next series, and we have to understand that". Everyone wants to say, "Ah, man, this is boring" and this that and the other, but you usually don't appreciate something until you don't have it anymore. "It's a great thing".
Bella Thorne kisses Scott Disick in Cannes

Palestinians, Israel police clash at Jerusalem Old City gate
The announcement comes just days after Netanyahu personally greeted US President Donald Trump on his first visit to Israel. "King Salman of Saudi Arabia could not have been kinder, and I will tell you, he's a very wise, wise man", he said.
Palestinian stabs Israeli officer, is shot
Trump left for Jerusalem after the welcome ceremony for his meeting with Israeli president Reuven Rivlin at the President's House. The status of Jerusalem is ultra-sensitive and has been among the most hard issues in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
