Lebron James surpasses Jordan

Lebron James surpasses Jordan

TNT will broadcast the game live at 7:30 p.m.

Cleveland-Golden State 3.0 is the matchup fans worldwide expected and wanted, and James believes they're in for quite a show. But they displayed their superiority over the final two games to wrap up the series. The Lions won the regular-season finale the week before the title game and scored first on a field goal by Walker.

With six days to go until the NBA Finals officially tip off, the duo not only remained in Cleveland, but chose to take in a Future concert as they casually await Thursday's game.

While trying to savor a rewarding season in which they won 53 games, earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and advanced to the Eastern Conference finals, members of the Boston Celtics acknowledged the gap that still exists with the Cleveland Cavaliers in their quest to elevate to a true title contender.

"The best team in our league the last three years", James said of the Warriors.

LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan to become the highest points scorer in National Basketball Association play-off history as the Cleveland Cavaliers reached the finals for a third successive year.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have been rolling as well, sweeping the Pacers and Raptors before dominating the Celtics in five games.

The Cavs' "Big Three" were strongly backed by their reserves. And defensively, they're a lot better.

They beat Washington in seven games, including a Game 2 victory in which Thomas scored 53 points - one shy of the franchise playoff record. Cleveland limited the Celtics to 41 percent from the field and 29 percent from beyond the arc. "I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, just because of what he was able to accomplish". "We have to execute offensively".

Her speech followed several tense exchanges with President Donald Trump at a series of multi-lateral meetings. Trump has vowed to walk away from the historic Paris deal while Merkel supports the agreement.

"The stuff they're running, it's harder to defend than Golden State's (offense) for me, as far as the actions and all the running around and all the guys who are making all the plays, so it's a totally different thing", Lue said. It's not about wanting to establish himself as the NBA's greatest player.

Everyone will have one eye on Irving's left ankle. Irving stayed on the floor and finished the game, but with a day off between games there will be interest in how tender his ankle is at tipoff.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are heading somewhere they are very familiar with. We're taking Cleveland and the points in Game 1.

Fighting to keep their season alive, the Celtics aren't giving an inch despite playing without All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, who may need surgery on a hip injury.

It's an indication that despite still being in a dire 3-1 hole, the resolve inside Boston's locker room remains strong.

"Just with him rebounding the basketball, being aggressive, going in the trenches getting defensive rebounds was big for us because he's the best outlet guy in the league and when he rebounds, he can get it to LeBron or Kyrie and he can push our pace".

Here's some background information about the NBA Finals. It's one more team that you probably would've thought would've been a contender.

"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", Draymond Green said. "So I didn't think I could be Mike".

"We've got a long way to go", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Simple as that. It's good that we're here now. Terry Rozier added 10 markers off the bench.
