Kyrie Irving is ready for Stephen Curry and Warriors

Jaylen Brown added six points off the bench. "We're not where we need to be".

James is the all-time leading playoffs scorer now, passing Michael Jordan with a three-point jump shot from the left wing in the third quarter.

The Celtics have carved out their path as one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference over the next few seasons. but for now, James and the Cavaliers certainly aren't going anywhere.

"We knew that while Friday was a 44-point disaster, it was worth one (game)". "Collectively, we can take away what an elite (team) looks like".

Is this good for the game, for the league?

After being held scoreless in the fourth quarter of Game 3, James scored 15 of his 34 points in the fourth to close out Game 4.

Deron Williams (14 points) and Kyle Korver (seven points) provided the Cavs with the spark off the bench they had been lacking.

The Celtics pulled off the improbable comeback upset in Game 3 before Kyrie Irving and James combined to bring the defending champions back from 16 points down to win Game 4 Tuesday night. With a 30-point win on Thursday - 33 points to be exact - the Cavaliers became just the third team in the past 30 years that a team has beat an opponent by 30 points twice in the same series. The teams have a week off after mowing through their respective conferences."Just how tough and determined the guy is, to be able to go through the situation he was going through on a day-to-day basis, still being focused and maintaining his focus for the team, you know, family is everything".

The Cavaliers set a franchise playoff record in the first half, scoring 75 points in the first two periods. They lost the first two games at home in the first round against Chicago, then came back to win four in a row.

Maybe, but as the teams gear up for Thursday night's series opener in Oakland, comments made by Warriors forward Draymond Green in October are reverberating around Cleveland. Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan were put on a regimented maintenance program at the height of the Spurs dynasty that saw each miss plenty of regular season games in order to be at peak health for the playoffs. "It's cute.". The Cavaliers' 43 points in the first quarter made them the first playoff team since the 1990 Celtics with three 40-point quarters against the same team.

Game 5 takes place in Boston on Thursday.

"He's a competitor. When you're a competitor, you want the best and vice versa". They're just dedicated to basketball. They're coming out and they're hitting us, they don't care who you are. "It was 1 vs. 2", Irving said. He is also shooting a red-hot 62.7% from the field and 50% from three-point range.

There are 240 minutes of play in an National Basketball Association game, but Boston's 112-99 Game 4 loss to Cleveland came down to seven (six minutes and 46 seconds to be precise).

When Bradley turned a couple of Cleveland mistakes into breakaway dunks, his fans stood in applause as if their Celtics weren't trailing 73-57 at the intermission.
