Cavaliers cruise past Celtics into National Basketball Association finals

By complimenting Golden State and praising them for being the best team in the league, he's already setting himself up.

Thomas had his front tooth knocked out in Game 1 of the conference semifinals against Washington, but it was a lingering hip injury he aggravated later in the series against the Wizards that would end his season prematurely. "We don't go into any series saying we're only going to play four games, we can't approach a series like that, like, 'Yeah, we're going to play four.' You approach it with a mindset of, 'Of course we'd love to sweep them but you have to take that game by game'".

In the first championship meeting in 1952, Layne and Walker ran for TDs to give the Lions a 17-7 win and their first championship since 1935.

"I said to to myself, 'we can't tie this series, we just can't do that '".

"This will be talked about long after us", Green said. 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. Simple as that. It's good that we're here now. "But they tested us every single minute, and we needed that".

Can LeBron and the Cavs do it again? The David Blatt-led Cavs were a shell of themselves, though, without Kevin Love for the entirety of the series and Kyrie Irving for the final five games.

The 2016 champion Cavs will battle the 2015 champion Warriors for the third straight year.

Mr Wainwright said the attack was "unprecedented in its scale" and warned many more people could find themselves affected. But computers and networks that didn't update their systems remained at risk.

With Richard back, the Canadiens won the following year in five games with the Rocket getting the game-winning goal in the clincher.

It is the seventh successive year James has led his team to the finals, with four straight appearances for the Miami Heat preceding his return to Cleveland in 2014.

LeBron James scored 35 points to become the NBA's all-time playoff scoring leader - surpassing Michael Jordan. That jibed with comments James made in December, when he said of Jordan, "He was much more of a scorer", adding, "You recognize the dominance that someone had. but there's no similarities in our game, at all". "They cause a lot of stress, and I'll get to that point when we start to prepare for them".

"Since I fell down in March, I think that's what aggravated it", Thomas said.

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

Before the game was over, James had broken the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list - racking up a career postseason total of 5,995 points and bumping His Airness Michael Jordan down to No. 2.

And of course Jordan owns six championships to James' three. Now in 2017, the Cavs are going to the Finals for their third straight year and are defending National Basketball Association champions.
