James surpasses Jordan as playoffs scoring leader

James began making his presence known early and did a bit of everything. LeBron and Kyrie combined for 28 third-quarter points, with Irving going for 13 points and four assists in the frame.

For the third time in as many TD Garden games in the series, the Cavaliers never trailed. The 43 points became a franchise high for most points in a quarter of a playoff game for the Cavaliers.

It's hard to imagine the National Basketball Association finals without LeBron James, partly because there have been so few without him.

"His X-rays and all of the information that they gathered is being sent to another specialist", Stevens said before Tuesday's Game 4. Avery Bradley led the way for the Celtics with 23 points, but he was the lone bright spot for the Celtics.

The Cavs were clicking early on, setting the franchise record for points in a quarter behind Kevin Love and James, who shot a ideal 5-of-5 in the first period, as Cleveland took a 43-27 lead.

With victory in the bag, he sat out the fourth quarter as the Cavaliers routed the Celtics 135-102 to clinch the best-of-seven series 4-1.

With James in foul trouble, Irving was forced to do more than ever and he delivered, scoring 19 in less than five minutes and 33 in a 19-minute stretch. What a superstar! He led the way with 35 points for the Cavs while Kyrie added 24.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have been rolling as well, sweeping the Pacers and Raptors before dominating the Celtics in five games.




Irving's final 3 of the quarter was just mean. By that time, both teams emptied their benches while the starters waited for time to run out. "He couldn't be the assist man like LeBron James can".

Boston's comeback was fueled by Thomas' replacement, Marcus Smart, who made 7 of 10 3-pointers and scored 27 points. Now, they'll face Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors for the title! That's all I can give you right now, because I'm happy and I don't want to be stressed.

"I feel like we're humble enough to know we haven't played well at home", he said.

Bradley talked about the defeat in the postgame interview and stated, "This leaves a certain taste in our mouths, to get here and to not get to the championship." .

Just before halftime, Avery Bradley leaked out for a couple of transition buckets, charging the TD Garden crowd to go insane. "We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do. He does owe me $100 and since he got his new deal hopefully he can afford to pay me now", Brown said Saturday post-practice.

Durant's only other time in the Finals was in 2012 when he was with Oklahoma City, but the Thunder lost to the Miami Heat in a series that made James a champion for the first time.

James was 0-4 from three point range heading into the 4th quarter, and he altered his strategy to better suit the team's needs. The Cavaliers are 14.5 favorites to get back on track and take a 3-1 series lead with a chance to close it out on May 25 in Boston. Cleveland improved to 35-5 against Eastern teams in the playoffs since 2015. Held a pregame moment of silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing. LeBron James is an insane basketball player, and can lead his team to a win or two in this series.

"The whole underdog thing is amusing to me, because yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title", Cavs forward Kevin Love said following Saturday's practice.
