Cavs blow out Celts to reach finals

In the process, Cleveland set an National Basketball Association record by winning their 13th consecutive series closeout opportunity.

The Warriors beat Cleveland for the title two years ago, and the Cavaliers turned the tables last year with a remarkable rally from a 3-1 series deficit to capture the title in seven games. "We were able to go to the Eastern Conference finals, learn a lot about being in this position, and I feel like it's going to help us for next year". When you're growing up and you're seeing Michael Jordan, it's nearly like a God. "I didn't think too much about it". Over at Quicken Loans, the decrease went from $314 in 2015 to $265 previous year and $188 for the third Finals installment of Warriors-Cavaliers. He quickly flashed one finger as he backpedaled down the court. "He's one of the most competitive players in the league, and he kind of spoke this into existence".

James said he was honored to pass Jordan, his boyhood idol. "That was my mindset". "But at the same time, if we play our game of basketball, who knows what will happen?" The ex-Bull (and -Wizard, although his two-year Washington tenure yielded no playoff games) remains the NBA's per-game postseason scoring leader, at 33.45, while James's mark of 28.25 places him fifth, behind Allen Iverson (29.73), Jerry West (29.13) and Kevin Durant (28.44).

"I'm going to be honest, I'm not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State", LeBron James said after scoring 35 points in the Cavs' 135-102 Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics.

Irving came out of the gate somewhat slow in these playoffs.

"That's his answer", Warriors Interim Head Coach Mike Brown said.

"This team is a insane team", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said after Thursday's game.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said the thought the Cavs would need the underdog title as a linchpin to get ready for the Finals was offbase.

The Golden State Warriors counted James' improbable win in 2016 by adding the only player on the planet remotely close to James' capabilities.

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points.

The three-pointer put the Cavaliers up by 32 points. Deron Williams added 14 off the bench, even as his team led by as many as 39. Improved to 36-5 against Eastern Conference opponents in the playoffs since 2015. The 109 points through three quarters marked the most the Celtics have allowed in the shot-clock era. But it meant little as Boston never led in any of their home games in the series. "I want the fundamentals of the game to be as great as they can be". Held a pregame moment of silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing.

Focusing specifically on Game 1 of the NBA Finals over the past 25 years, the Under has been a profitable 9-15-1 O/U since 1991 with an average combined score of 185.56 points versus an average closing total of 191.56.
