Isaiah Thomas Laughs Off Suggestion Celtics Play Better Without Him

Isaiah Thomas Laughs Off Suggestion Celtics Play Better Without Him

Today, I will be recapping the two recently concluded conference finals series. I should be saying this with more emotion because it's hard for me. Theyve been super-impressive. Its kind of in our minds that thats who we were going to see.

The acquisition sent quakes throughout the National Basketball Association and all but assured the Warriors, who went on to post the league's best record, a ticket back to the Finals. In 2015, James had to carry an injury-depleted roster and came up short in six games. A year ago he carried his team back from the brink as the Cavs became the first team to rally from a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven NBA Finals and win the title.

There will be no love lost between these teams, especially after Green, whose Game Five suspension in the 2016 Finals was considered by many to be the turning point, said last November he wanted to "destroy" and "annihilate" the Cavs in a championship rematch.

Won their first National Basketball Association title on the West Coast in 1975 when they pulled off a major upset by sweeping the heavily favoured Washington Bullets in four games. East vs. West, Cleveland against Golden State.

Their big advantage this season is the firepower never ends. "Honestly, we didn't want IT to go down".

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will meet in the most highly anticipated NBA Finals in recent history.

Want to show up your friend? Its no wonder then that the wise guys have installed the Warriors as heavy favourites to beat the Cavs for the second time in three years and wrestle back the Larry OBrien Trophy that slipped through their hands last June. The answer is 2010. Literally swept through. They are 12-0 in the playoffs coming into the NBA Finals.

LeBron James defers on Warriors thoughts: 'It's too stressful'
That play was the flagrant foul that suspended Green for Game 5. "It's definitely one for the books for me up to this point". The shot gave him 29 points for the game and 5,989 points for his postseason career to edge him past Jordan's mark of 5,987.

Up 18 points at halftime and by as many as 39, the Cavaliers coasted to a 135-102 victory in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals at the Garden. The shot gave him 29 points for the game and 5,989 points for his postseason career.

In the series against the Celtics, James averaged 29.6 points per game, 6.8 assists per game, and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Kyrie Irving looked fantastic during this series. I started to slash more and move more without the ball, shoot more standstill 3s and figure out ways I could be more productive than just having the ball in isolation. The 43 points Cleveland scored in the first quarter set a team postseason record for a quarter.

LeBron James needed 28 points Thursday night to surpass National Basketball Association legend and one of the all-time greatest to play the game, Michael Jordan, in career playoff points and he did so in a decisive manner.

That kind of lack of randomness is enough to buy in, and this curse is real until Smith's NBA Finals losing streak stops. We should have just played the NBA Finals in October as these two teams seemed on a collision course all season long and now we will finally witness the series. I'm taking part in practices, helping with the messaging, taking part in coaching meetings, but I'm not on the sidelines during games.

"I'm a guy who always got happy and excited of seeing my team successful, of seeing my individual teammates be successful".

A Warriors' team bent on revenge stands in his way.
