James passes Jordan, Cavs back in Finals with 135-102 win

James passes Jordan, Cavs back in Finals with 135-102 win

Cleveland came from behind to win Game 4 at home. The Golden State Warriors deserve their spot in the final series , pure and simple, and it's going to be a daunting task for whoever has to face them in the NBA Finals. The Big Three of LeBron James (35 points, eight rebounds and eight assists), Kyrie Irving (24 points and seven assists) and Kevin Love (15 points, 11 rebounds and four steals) ensured there wouldn't be a Game 6 against Boston , while the team as a whole drilled 19 ...

Irving's 42, LeBron's 34 pushes Cavs past Celtics in Game 4

After boat-racing the Boston Celtics en route to a 130-86 win in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron James had a weirdly quiet performance in Game 3. What made the loss so stunning for players in the Cavs' locker room, as well as the fans who couldn't believe what they witnessed, was just two nights earlier the Cavs set records for the way they dominated the Celtics in Game 2 .

LeBron, Cavs try to shake 'weird' loss in Game 3 to Celtics

For a superstar who regularly seizes the biggest moments and makes them his own, it was odd to see James basically look like one of Clevelands reserves. "We called him on FaceTime, so he got to celebrate with us a little bit", Bradley said. James said he just had an off-night. It is easy to forget one of last night's heroes, Marcus Smart , was the 6th overall pick in the 2014 draft, and for the Celtics he is essentially a "sixth man". Read More

Cleveland Cavaliers at Toronto Raptors - 5/5/17 NBA Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction
