James, Cavs KO Celts, set up rematch vs. Warriors

Frederick Owens | 28 May, 2017, 03:21

"The thing that I'm gonna remember most about my time in Golden State is the fan base", Schlenk declared on 95.7 The Game. "I appreciate it. I'm happy we've been able to steamroll people, and I love that they've been able to steamroll people, because I just appreciate greatness".

The only remaining drama was whether James would score the 28 points he needed to surpass Michael Jordan's record of 5,987 playoff points.

The Celtics made some noise near the end of the first half, but Irving scored Cleveland's first 11 points in the opening 3:18 of the second half.

The first game of the best-of-seven finals is slated for Thursday, June 1, United States time, which means Australian fans can catch it on Friday, June 2. "They just stayed resilient all year, got to the playoffs, and we really stepped our game up", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Celtics and Lakers met in the NBA Finals in six of eight years in the 1960s and in three of four in the 1980s, but never before have the same teams squared off for the NBA title in three consecutive seasons. In the 2nd round, LeBron spun the ball at Serge Ibaka, then drilled a 3-pointer in his face.The Celtics aren't a better team without Isaiah Thomas.The two-time All-Star was sidelined in Game 2 after aggravating a hip injury. One of the unsung causes for the Warriors' demise past year was that Iguodala hurt his back in Game 6 and was not almost the same in the final two games of the series.

This will be a match-up of some of the greatest players ever to step foot on a basketball court.

The Cleveland regulars were 16 of 33 from behind the arc through three quarters - after the Cavs went 19 of 39 on treys in a 44-point win in Game 2. Davis had allowed only one unearned run in his first 18 appearances this season before giving up a two-run homer to the immortal Mac Williamson.

"It's pretty cool to think that in three weeks you've got the No. 1 pick in the draft", Stevens said.

James is an all-time great who will get his numbers, but Boston couldn't even contain the 32-year-old Williams. Golden State has lost Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes, but they brought in Durant, and his playoff performance to date - 25.2 points on 55.6 percent shooting - has been exactly what the Warriors wanted when they signed him last July. They unleashed the full power of their offensive arsenal in the first 12 minutes of Game 5 by pouring in a franchise-record 43 points in a quarter. The teams observed a moment of silence for the victims of Monday's bombing in Manchester, England.
