LeBron not ready to think about Warriors: 'It's too stressful'

The Warriors are listed as 7-point favorites for Game One at home, according to CBS Sports. But their fans would not relent. Now they will face off once again. And that's after they won it in 2003 and picked up LeBron James. They were done by the end of the third quarter in Thursday's Game 5, but they still scored or assisted on 34 of the team's 38 baskets while in the game. "It sparked a little bit of motivation for each and everybody in our locker room to get better".

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. Reviewing each Warriors game this postseason reveals an on-court chemistry and ruthlessness not seen in recent times, if at all. It is a hard, slow process.

James has three National Basketball Association titles while Jordan has six. The Warriors, who will be opposing Cleveland for a third straight NBA Finals, had invested six years in developing a championship roster around Steph Curry. "They cause a lot of stress, and I'll get to that point when we start to prepare for them". "I never believed I could be Mike". It's tough for me to say that is the case. He watched Game 5 in street clothes.

James finished the night with 5,995 playoff points, topping Jordan's mark of 5,987.

The finals are so good that the defending champions are 12-1 this post season and have an average margin of victory of 13.6 and they're the underdogs.

"Eastern Conference finals, that's the biggest stage I've ever been on".

The Celtics, by comparison, had yet to acquire so much natural talent. Kelly Olynyk another. Marcus Smart stepped into the starting lineup, and rookie Jaylen Brown helped out from the bench.

Thomas injured the hip in March and aggravated it in the second-round series against Washington. Gerald Green, Terry Rozier and Jae Crowder all reached double figures too, as the Celtics chased the game.

As the Cavs' stars did throughout the East finals, they worked together in fire-breathing tandem Thursday.

They were crowned National Basketball Association champions in 2015 but were defeated last year as Cleveland's 52-year wait for a major sporting title came to an 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. Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball or Josh Jackson may arrive as the No. 1 pick - if it isn't traded for someone better. A couple of minutes later James was blocking a layup and then stealing an entry pass for successive transition layups.

"Think the biggest thing for me sitting here today after breaking the all-time scoring record in playoff history is that I did it just being me", James said.

Bradley promised that the Celtics would be better in 2017-18. "We don't go into any series saying we're only going to play four games, we can't approach a series like that, like, 'Yeah, we're going to play four.' You approach it with a mindset of, 'Of course we'd love to sweep them but you have to take that game by game'". Thomas exited during the Game 2 debacle and was put on the shelf for the remainder of the postseason.

But they also showed how badly they need him. The NBA Draft was 28 days away, and it was not so bad at all.
