Underdog Cavs insist they have plenty of bite for Finals

Underdog Cavs insist they have plenty of bite for Finals

And there will be reminders of the Halloween party that James threw for the Cavaliers last fall, with "3-1 Lead" - a nod to what the Warriors lost in last year's Finals - prominently displayed on the drum set.

And in Game 7, with LeBron James scoring a triple double plus a massive block and the dagger three-point shot from Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers won the game and the title, ending a sports championship drought the city of Cleveland had been living under since 1964.

Golden State Warriors forward David West, Cleveland Cavaliers guards Deron Williams and Kyle Korver are all making their finals debut.

In an era that featured just six National Hockey League teams, the Montreal Canadiens played in 10 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals from 1951-60, winning six times.

"This is great learning for how far we have to go", Stevens said.

Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas wanted to keep playing in the Eastern Conference finals, but team doctors and officials convinced him he needed to shut down his season for his long-term health.

Those suggestions stem from the Celtics pulling out a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 in which Thomas was sidelined with a hip injury. The Cavs were pushed in individual games in the first round by the Indiana Pacers, but even the Celtics were drilled in two home-game blowouts.

G7 breaks up without US agreement on climate
After the pomp of presidential travel overseas, Trump will return to Washington to find the same problems that have dogged him. The U.S. hasn't decided yet. "Many NATO countries have agreed to step up payments considerably, as they should".

Wow. And now he's doing something most people don't get to do. After torching the Celtics for 35, James now sits at 5,995 postseason career points. A walk down National Basketball Association finals memory lane reveals that the National Basketball Association finals has often seen the same teams duking it out for titles. Now they will face off once again.

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for 79 points at Boston's TD Gardens to claim the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals 4-1. The Cavs' starting five played the entire third quarter and outscored the Celtics 34-17. "We had to put that work in all year long to make it happen".

LeBron James was once among thousands of youngsters striving to "be like Mike", but the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar never dreamed he'd be mentioned in the same breath as Chicago Bulls icon Michael Jordan as one of basketball's greatest.

For James, moving past Jordan was especially meaningful. "I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike".

"I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there", he quipped. "So whatever they have to do to continue to play at, not just a normal level, at an MVP level, that's what I've been on them doctors about and everybody on that training staff is".

"The biggest thing for me sitting here today after breaking the record is that I did it just being me".

I predict the Warriors winning in six games to reclaim the throne. I was like, if I'm not scoring the ball, how can I still make an impact on the game? I'm fortunate to be No. 1 in all-time playoff points.
