LeBron James becomes NBA's all-time playoff scoring leader

The defending National Basketball Association champions can wrap up their third straight conference title - and a "three-match" against the Warriors - with a win in Game 5 on Thursday night in Boston. I didn't think he would get his fourth foul, but he did.The effort made Spurs coach Gregg Popovich smile and clap at times, but the Warriors' depth and talent proved too much for short-handed San Antonio.The Celtics shot a sizzling 18-of-40 from beyond the arc, with Smart-who shot 28 percent from three this season-going 7-of-10.

"I'm just happy and blessed that when I made a decision to come back that I was able to help him blossom, I guess, because he gets to play in games that he's always been built for". The continuity from last year's Cleveland team should serve them well against a Golden State squad that had to sacrifice some of its depth to add Durant. "That's all I can give you right now". James was in a similar situation in Miami wh.

However, James has been a more efficient postseason scorer than Jordan, needing fewer shots (4,379 to 4,497), albeit while hitting a lower percentage (.482-.487) and taking more three-pointers (971-446).

This is the first time the same two teams have faced off in three consecutive NBA Finals, and it's the matchup that most NBA fans - and Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob - wanted.

There's a saying that sounds like an ancient bit of received wisdom but probably originates with the justly maligned Tom Cruise vehicle Cocktail that goes "everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end".

"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 the doctors about", he said. J.R. Smith plays, ahem, a thinking man's game - fitting in on offense while excelling on defense.

"The importance of a Game 4, especially the way we came out in Game 3, you know, in the back of my mind, I was like, I'm saying to myself, 'We can not - they can not tie up this series, ' " Irving said. The 39-year-old had maintained he will not ponder whether to retire or return until after the season.

LeBron James has bested his idol and frequent target of comparison, Michael Jordan, once more by breaking his all-time NBA Playoffs scoring record. "It's tough to say that we didn't expect it; we knew they'd be right there". "But it doesn't mean anything going into the next series, and we have to understand that". They also had six players who scored double digits in Boston's Game 3 win. But the Cavaliers superstar says his pursuit is about leaving a legacy to motivate the next generation of players. Like I've stated before, it's about winning the championship, and we're four games away from that. "The only thing that matters now is to get a win back in Boston". These two teams have been the best for years now and if anything, they are better than they have ever been.
