LeBron James overtakes Michael Jordan as Cavaliers reach National Basketball Association finals again

Sports CoD 5 26 17

LeBron James passed Michael Jordan to become the NBA's career playoff scoring leader and Cleveland embarrassed the Celtics again, advancing to a third consecutive NBA Final meeting with the Golden State Warriors.

James entered Game Five of the Eastern Conference Finals against the host Boston Celtics on Thursday needing 28 points to surpass Jordan (5,987 points).

More germane to the present, the Cavs officially rebounded from their out-of-character Game 3 loss and their shaky first half in Game 4 with a game of vicious execution and momentum.

Kevin Love had 15 points and 11 rebounds and was a game-high plus-43, and Williams added 14 points in 17 minutes off the bench in the win that made Cleveland 12-1 in the postseason. Meanwhile, the Celtics' leading scorer after the injured Thomas, Avery Bradley, is averaging just 16.4 points this postseason.

A three-pointer with 2:42 to go in the third quarter gave James his 5989th playoff point and the outright lead over the Chicago Bulls legend.

Said Stevens, "I think we've got a good amount of people that will be back and obviously a strong core with also some exciting opportunities in the draft". There is no one who comes close. After that, it looked as if no one could stop them - except, Boston stopped them.

America's Cup qualifiers off to smashing start in Bermuda
But with their towering fixed-wing sails, speed and agility, this year's craft promise another sensational spectacle. For the first time the defending champions are competing in the qualifiers, and Team USA didn't disappoint.

James finished the game with 35 points to take his career playoff total to 5,995 points.

Furthermore, Golden State leads all playoff teams in points per game (118.3), field goal percentage (50.2) and assists per game (27.8), and it is second in offensive efficiency (115.8 points per 100 possessions).

After Cleveland won their first NBA Championship previous year against Golden State, the Cavs will be looking to solidify their careers with a second win in a row.

"The whole underdog thing is amusing to me, because yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title", Cavs forward Kevin Love said following Saturday's practice.

"He has publicly said (Lonzo) won't work out, and that's what we have to go by", Ainge said.

The Warriors going undefeated the first three rounds, with coach Steve Kerr debilitated with a spinal condition, shows not only the collective talent Kerr oversees, but the planning Kerr did.

Steven Gerrard: I could've won trophies at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp
Not just because we qualified for the Champions League but the whole project. Steven Gerrard played for Liverpool in Wednesday's friendly in Australia.

The team announced Wednesday that Brown is questionable for the Game 5 matchup due to a right hip pointer.

"I believe we've got another level, as well", he said after Cleveland steamrolled the Boston Celtics with 130-86 on Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. "Now we have to keep our feet on the ground and hope for the best".

However great LeBron is, and he clearly is the primary reason the Cavaliers have had a resurgence since his return three years ago, they also have two other All-Stars in the persons of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.

Like him or not, LeBron James might be the best basketball player in the world. "So we got back together".

"I told our guys: 'We made a lot of great strides, but this pain is part of the path to what we ultimately want to be, '" he said.
