Twitter reacts to Cavaliers pulling away from Celtics in Game 5

29 May, 2017, 11:53 | Author: Felix Jensen

The Celtics, who are missing their best player, injured guard Isaiah Thomas, led by as many as 16 points in the first half and appeared primed to stun Cleveland again while James flirted with trouble. The Warriors and Cavs have DOMINANTED to get here.

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.

On one hand, the assistant coach will literally earn his paycheck during the series.

A Warriors' team bent on revenge stands in his way.

That's how LeBron James saw it. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.3 points on 50.2 percent shooting and allowing 102 points on 41.6 percent shooting.

"I've been very blessed the last few years to be a part of this league and play on the big stage", said Cleveland star LeBron James, who has now reached the Finals for the eighth time - including each of the last seven years.

The Cavs" "Big Three' were strongly backed by their reserves.

Deron Williams, who had been quiet for most of the series, also got in on the act with a series-best 14 points for Cleveland. How will Cleveland try to contain Curry? For these reasons, the Warriors have registered the most efficient defense this post season. The respect and deference by teammates and staff for James is clear. Even opposing players and coaches are recognizing the type of impact that James has on the Cavs.

"We had really good athletes, quick guys that make things tough on people, guarding him, and he was able to raise up and make a lot of tough shots", said Stevens. So the crowd serenaded Ginobili with "Manu, Manu" chants as the game came to a close.The Celtics lost the first two games of this series in Boston by a total of 57 combined points. "To say we're a better team without him is just silly". "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west". However, the Cavs have experienced a misstep.

Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, left, and Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James speak after Game 5 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals, on Thursday, May 25, 2017, in Boston. We see liberalized shot attempts, resulting in a bunch of Celtic players coming together in an attempt to fill the scoring gap. I can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team.

He also said he believes that the greatness conversation is discussed more often in the National Basketball Association than in other sports. The Warriors have played in 11 playoff series under Steve Kerr and in nine of those series at least one starter on the opposition has missed time due to injury. First off, how does the addition of Kevin Durant impact this series over the long haul?

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook installed Golden State as a minus-260 favorite, with Cleveland at plus-220, meaning a $100 bet on the Warriors would win $38.46 and the same bet on the Cavaliers would win $220, according to ESPN. I hope we have that chance to make that determination. Can Durant win his first?

James still trails Jordan in one key area: titles.

The Warriors were back in the NBA Finals, and they had a 3-1 lead against the Cavaliers, the same team they defeated for the championship the previous year.
