Lue: Cavs' Irving feeling 'good' after Game 4 ankle injury

Frederick Owens | 26 May, 2017, 10:01

In other injury-related news, Stevens confirmed comments made earlier in the day by Danny Ainge regarding Isaiah Thomas' right hip injury which led to the Celtics shutting him down for the playoffs after the injury proved to be too much for him to play through at halftime of Boston's Game 2 loss.

James, Irving and Love were the only three Cavs players to make double digits. However, what's most impressive about the Nike-sponsored guard's scoring output is that he scored 19 of his points in less than five minutes after hurting his ankle in the third quarter.

"You got us to this point and continue to do that, so I just tried to find ways to get into the lane, get into transition, when they backed off, shoot the jumper, and felt very comfortable".

Irving said Cleveland would benefit from having been put under pressure by Boston in Game 4. Irving stayed on the floor and finished the game, but with a day off between games there will be interest in how tender his ankle is at tipoff.

The NBA announced that the All-Star weekend will be held February 15-17 in Charlotte and the game will be played at the Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets.

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are poised to become one of the greatest rivalries in National Basketball Association history as the two organizations meet in the Finals for the third time in three years.

They said we had a bad season but we have three trophies
The Europa League became the club's third piece of silverware this season after they claimed the Community Shield and EFL Cup. We played for England, we played for Manchester and we played for them - the people who died.


The chatter about an NBA Finals' matchup of two teams with unblemished playoff records is gone, but the challenge from the Celtics has sharpened the focus of the defending champs. "We can't go back to Boston tied 2-2".

That next level for Kyrie resulted in a third quarter for the ages, where he dropped 21 points and only missed one shot.

Lue should have warned James to be careful, too, as the superstar picked up four fouls and spent the final 6:46 of the first half watching from the bench, unable to help his team.

During the pre-game broadcast, TNT reported that LeBron James was suffering from a, "bug". Game 5 is underway. The Cavaliers lead the best-of-seven series 3-1. The point guard scored 42 points in Cleveland's 112-99 victory, making 15 of his 22 field goal attempts. I'm a playmaker. I'm a player.

"We have guys who have chips on their shoulders", Boston coach Brad Stevens said. The crowd will be vocal and on edge to push the Celtics one game closer to even the series. "Plays out of time-out [have been] kind of been killing us and keeping us off balance, but in the second half we kind of got a little bit of rhythm, and think we'll be better in Game 5".
