LeBron James eclipses Michael Jordan's scoring record

"They had multiple people come in and talk to me about what's more important, but I definitely wasn't trying to hear that at that point in time".

In overtime in Game 7, Red Wings forward Tony Leswick got credit for the series-clinching goal when his innocent looking shot from the point was deflected by Harvey past Gerry McNeil for a 2-1 win 4:29 into OT.

"I think collectively you take away what elite looks like because I think we saw it first-hand, especially in these home games". The so-called "luxury tax" can be exceeded, but most teams are leery about doing it. The Warriors are 12-0 overall through the first three rounds; the Cavs are 12-1. Last year, Cleveland became the first team in NBA Finals history to come back after trailing the series 3-1.

JaVale McGee has turned his entire career around because of the way he has been playing in this year's postseason.

But what Thomas is thinking about right now is how his Celtics can get better, and he said in an interview Saturday (AEST) that he was willing to forego a big payday in the near future if it meant signing one or two big free agents.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) hands out conference champion shirts to his teammates after game five of the Eastern conference finals of the NBA Playoffs against the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden. 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 can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team", continued Durant.

The Warriors were back in the NBA Finals, and they had a 3-1 lead against the Cavaliers, the same team they defeated for the championship the previous year.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob said publicly he wanted another chance at the Cavs because of unfinished business from 2016.

"They've been there before", said Marcus Smart. I don't really have anything to say.

After playing so well in the conference finals, is Love so confident that he prefers the matchup against the Warriors over playing the San Antonio Spurs? "I can't lie", Durant said, when comparing the 2012 Finals trip to this one.

"I hope it's four".

The Cavaliers won the Central Division over the Milwaukee Bucks and the Indiana Pacers by 9 games. "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'".

Both teams have made it to that point, and if Green's comments are any indication, it should prove to be a fiery, exciting series. "Just to be a part of this is fantastic, so really just embracing that".

The Cleveland Cavaliers were supposed to get there, and they did.
