Kyrie Irving's 42, LeBron's 34 rally Cavs past Celtics in Game 4

CLEVELAND Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue isn't looking past the Boston Celtics even as his team is a win away from an NBA Finals trilogy against the Golden State Warriors.

The All-Star is coming off a series in which he torched the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals, averaging 22.6 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists during the series.

The Finals begin on June 1st, with two games in Oakland, before the series moves to Cleveland. If the Cavs advance, it will set the stage for the third straight year of Golden State-Cleveland in the NBA Finals.

The victor of the series will meet the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. "As much as you want to, it's not over".

The Cavaliers, of course, came back from a three-games-to-one deficit to defeat the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, which caused Draymond Green to say he wanted to "destroy" the Cavaliers if they were to meet in the Finals back in October. MJ's record of 5,987 points in his postseason career in 179 games from 1985-2003 stood unchallenged, until LeBron stepped onto the court in Boston last night. I don't feel like we're underdogs. Coach Brad Stevens said no decision had been made yet on whether Thomas would undergo an operation but he reiterated that he is out for the remainder of the playoffs. "This is a big step for us, especially what we went through all season, and we were doubted throughout the regular season all year".

"With that being said, tonight I'll start my prepping, and we'll see what happens". They set an National Basketball Association record last season with 73 wins. Only Bill Russell led his team to more consecutive Finals than the seven straight James steered the Miami Heat and now Cavs to, with eight straight for Russell and the Celtics from 1959-66.

The Cavs and the Warriors are the only teams ever to make it this deep in the playoffs and score at least 100 points in every game. "This is a great moment, and this is not promised".

"We owe our fans a better performance, and we know that, and we're going to play hard", Celtics guard Avery Bradley said.
