Celtics star Isaiah Thomas unsure if he'll need hip surgery

May 29, 2017, 07:52

Lue insists he has tried to pay up — time and time again, to no avail. Deron Williams had a series-best 14 points for Cleveland, who never trailed and led by as many as 39 points. James averaged 22 points on 35.6% from the field.

The NBA limits salaries for individual players, meaning an already-stacked Warriors team could only offer as much money for Kevin Durant as any other team that doesn't have a shot at winning a title. The Cavaliers forced a Game 7 out of the Warriors, and won the title. "They had multiple people come in and talk to me about what's more important, but I definitely wasn't trying to hear that at that point in time". Howe set a record with 12 points in the round and Lindsay scored four goals in a Game 2 win. "But we did something, and then they come back, they'll do something".

On the brink of becoming the first player since the early 1960s to play in seven straight Finals, James finds himself in a similar - and somewhat surprising - situation. "I asked him many time for it but he's denied it". With Chris Bosh injured and IN taking a surprising 2-1 lead, James & Wade took it up a notch. A walk down National Basketball Association finals memory lane reveals that the National Basketball Association finals has often seen the same teams duking it out for titles. How many games will the finals series last?

The Celtics did their best to keep up, but the consistent outside shooting, bench scoring and defense they relied on to stun Cleveland in Game 3 wasn't there on Thursday night.

"Us and Cleveland worked our butts off all year to put ourselves in position to be playing for a championship, and the league is as strong talent-wise across the board as it's ever been", Curry told reporters.

Golden State led the league with 67 wins this season and is a staggering 27-1 in its last 28 games - including a ideal 12-0 in the Western Conference playoffs, the first time a team has gone this deep into an National Basketball Association postseason without losing. And sometimes you can take as much enjoyment out of that, watching a guy just completely carve up a team and destroy them by 25 because he's putting up just an epic performance.

LaMarcus Aldridge, PF, San Antonio-With Kawhi Leonard out of commission, Aldridge needed to step up for the Spurs. After all, the Cavs won six fewer games than in 2015-16, and the primary pieces are the same.

What does matter is the chance to cement his own legacy, one that inspires young players to look beyond scoring as they develop their games. But going into the Finals, you have to have a lot more confidence in Love than you did this time past year. If guys are here, if guys aren't, we all wish the best for each other. "We've got to be ready for the challenge".

All this time Brown never wanted the money he earned by beating Lue in a shooting contest when the Cavaliers coach was an National Basketball Association newcomer, yet Golden State's acting coach — who spent two stints leading Cleveland — joked how Lue can surely afford it these days. They were led by nightly highlight reels from Isaiah Thomas who fittingly earned the nickname "King in the Fourth" for his offensive explosions in the final frame of games. Maybe it was the way Pat Riley treated him or perhaps what that series taught James about his team.

July 10, 2010 - Announces he is leaving the Cavaliers to become part of the Miami Heat.

The first season back in Cleveland wasn't as smooth as some expected.
