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

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

"I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there", he quipped. It's no wonder then that the wise guys have installed the Warriors as heavy favorites to beat the Cavs for the second time in three years and wrestle back the Larry O'Brien Trophy that slipped through their hands last June. "We just kept grinding".

Lue said didn't deliver any inspiring speech to his players before practice. "We want to give our home crowd a better outing than we put out the past two games".

The Cavaliers have played the Indiana Pacers (No. 15 in offensive rating during the regular season), and they faced the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics while Kyle Lowry and Isaiah Thomas were out for sustained stretches.

Even if the NBA's top two teams have steamrolled their way right to the place everybody figured they'd be when the season started all those months ago. Perhaps the best example: Early in the third quarter of Game 3 in Portland, with the Warriors down 16 points, Brown subbed in Andre Iguodala for Zaza Pachulia.

Boston took Game 3 in the Cavs' only hiccup of the postseason, though Cleveland has never really been in danger of being upset in the series. "We have a bigger goal in mind". What happens if Ainge takes Thomas up on his offer and IT gets hurts or his play declines?

G7 Splits Over Climate Change with Trump's Lone Position
While the others walked the entire distance, Trump was forced to follow behind in a golf cart, The Times of London reported . This story is developing. "You are the warriors of freedom, you are the protectors of that great American flag", Trump said .

James acknowledged that toppling a Warriors team boasting two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry, four-times scoring champion Kevin Durant, defensive specialist Draymond Green and sweet-shooting Klay Thompson will be among the toughest tasks of his career. Some teams have lost some key players who could have made an enormous difference - whether it's Blake Griffin, Kawhi Leonard. Cleveland has the No. 1 offensive efficiency in the playoffs with 120.7 points per 100 possessions; Golden State has the No. 2 at 115.8.

"I have no clue what's going to go on", said Celtics guard Marcus Smart. While down 17% from Tuesday's much closer Game 4 112-99 win for the Cavs, last night's court battle was up 6% from Game 5 of the 2016 Eastern Conference Finals, when LeBron and crew faced the Toronto Raptors. They do something, we come back and do something. "But we did something, and then they come back, they'll do something". So I think on both sides, they're kind of looking and watching and trying to outdo each other.

He didn't make the All-Star team this year and is not yet being mentioned with the all-time greats, but consider this: by general consensus, ball handling today has evolved far beyond what it used to be. "We're a young team".

Things didn't go smoothly, but the Heat looked impressive in the playoffs, including knocking off the #1 seed Chicago Bulls in 5 games. You've just got to do what you can and have the intentions to win the game, not to go out there and score a number of points but to just go out there and win the game and make winning plays.
