Celtics star Isaiah Thomas unsure if he'll need hip surgery

Celtics star Isaiah Thomas unsure if he'll need hip surgery

Kevin Durant is now the favorite to win Finals MVP, with Stephen Curry placing second and LeBron James, a three-time Finals MVP, third at 2-to-1.

James has three National Basketball Association titles while Jordan has six.

Despite playing in separate conferences, the Cavaliers and Warriors have formed a rivalry in pursuit of National Basketball Association dominance. It eventually prompted James to bolt Cleveland to join Wade, with Chris Bosh ditching the Toronto Raptors to also play for Miami.

Allen eventually defected from Boston and joined the Heat, while Garnett and Pierce accepted trades to the Brooklyn Nets where they formed a strong nucleus to play with Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. That popular sports cliché is about as truthful as a dating profile, especially with oddsmakers setting a record-high betting total for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

It always comes back to Boston and a Big 3; and Cleveland's threesome of stars put the hurt on the Celtics in a series-clinching contest Thursday night (final score 135-102) that was over by the end of the first quarter.

After allowing the Celtics to seize the early momentum in Game 4, the Cavs barely gave them the chance in Game 5. I fell in love with the game because of Mike. "I know there's a little bit of history with these two teams in the Finals the last few years".

In the 2nd round, LeBron spun the ball at Serge Ibaka, then drilled a 3-pointer in his face.The Celtics aren't a better team without Isaiah Thomas.The two-time All-Star was sidelined in Game 2 after aggravating a hip injury. The trend continued for the first half of Game 4 in which the Celtics went up by as many as 16 points.

The Palestinians want a state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, lands Israel captured in 1967. In the absence of two separate Palestinian and Israeli states, a "one-state solution" of sorts must emerge.

It's worth reiterating, their dominance simply could not be stifled despite Boston's best efforts.

"We obviously see the team to get past is Cleveland, said Al Horford". "We just need him to be aggressive all the time".

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points. Durant goes to Golden State searching for a title, and not only does he help deliver one, he's the difference maker, turning in a brilliant two-way performance that brings the trophy back to the Bay Area.

The Celtics and Lakers met in the NBA Finals in six of eight years in the 1960s and in three of four in the 1980s, but never before have the same teams squared off for the NBA title in three consecutive seasons.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook installed Golden State as a minus-260 favorite, with Cleveland at plus-220, meaning a $100 bet on the Warriors would win $38.46 and the same bet on the Cavaliers would win $220, according to ESPN.

"That's what he (Irving) does, those are the shots he takes", Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue said about the third-quarter push. The franchise is now at a crossroads with respect to its present and future. James wept on the Warriors home court in Oakland, where he was named unanimous NBA Finals MVP.
