LeBron questioned whether Cavaliers would make playoffs this year

LeBron questioned whether Cavaliers would make playoffs this year

The Cavaliers will need all they can get as they face elimination in Boston, where the Celtics are 10-0 this postseason.

The NBA Finals begin Thursday at either Houston or Golden State. "The way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from".

Tatum, after dunking on James, taunted the four-time NBA MVP, but it was James who found a new gear down the stretch, throwing assists and burying match-winning baskets. Sunday's coverage of the Cleveland Cavaliers' Game 7 Eastern Conference win over the Boston Celtics matched an all-time basketball ratings high for the network.

As well as his 35 points, James finished with 15 rebounds and nine assists, while Jeff Green, who made his first start since the opening game of the first round against IN, recorded 19 points and eight rebounds.

Love is grabbing 10.0 rebounds per game, and he's had a few moments in which he's looked like the player that made the All-Star team.

Before Friday night's game, Cleveland coach Ty Lue told his team (and others), "Three, three, three", meaning their season had either three hours, three days or three weeks remaining.

It led to head coach Tyronn Lue calling it arguably the best game of the 33-year-old's storied career.

He has made 156 appearances for Shakhtar, scoring 14 goals and winning three Ukrainian Premier League titles. He added: "It's an honour to be on the radar of great European coaches".

He put up 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting and added 15 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks.

While the Cavs are clearly the underdogs ahead of their fourth final in a row against Golden State, Thomas believes LeBron doesn't have to win another title to prove he's better than Jordan.

Cavaliers are waiting to know the victor between Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors who will play the Western Conference Final on Tuesday.

ESPN's Conference Finals coverage Sunday averaged a 6.3 metered market rating, up 37 percent from the same matchup in the Eastern Conference Finals a year ago and up 34 percent from its Western Conference Finals coverage in 2017.

Cleveland owned the seventh-best record in the Association on February 6 at 30-22 but was losers of 13 of its last 20 games at the time - a stretch which included six defeats in seven outings from January 8-23.

That's despite his Cavs team undergoing several roster changes throughout the season and incurring injuries along the way. Nobody had ever overcome that deficit in the championship round, and Cleveland had to do it against a team that had won an NBA-record 73 games. "I thought it was an outstanding defensive game".
