LeBron defers on Warriors thoughts: 'It's too stressful'

The Celtics, who were eliminated from the National Basketball Association playoffs Thursday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated them 135-102 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, met with members of the media Friday, at which point Thomas was asked about the hip injury that sidelined him for Boston's final three postseason games.

John McGraw's Giants won the rematch the following year 4-0 with one tie before Ruth gave the Yankees their first title the following year to cap the first season at Yankee Stadium. It's the matchup most expected, the matchup most predicted, and probably the matchup the Cavaliers and Warriors wanted as well. That popular sports cliché is about as truthful as a dating profile, especially with oddsmakers setting a record-high betting total for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

"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. "We want to go take back a championship, that's just the nature of a competitor and I think that's the mindset of everyone in this organization to go take back what they took from us".

The injury knocked the Boston point guard out of the Eastern Conference finals in Game 2. "Thirty teams suit up every year trying to get to this point, and only two teams do". You usually don't appreciate something until you don't have it anymore. Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said James was in "good spirits" when they spoke.Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points. Countered Golden State acting coach Mike Brown, when asked about it Thursday: "That's his opinion". Four advanced to the conference finals and now just two remain.

Much more of that sort of that will likely follow over the next week, filling time before Golden State plays host to Game 1. I respect how Hornets owner Jordan steers clear of the subject.

Kevin Durant, SF, Golden State-Durant and the Warriors still haven't lost a game in the playoffs, sweeping the shorthanded San Antonio Spurs in the conference finals. But if an National Basketball Association player can make the maximum no matter where they play, why not join a super team? So it makes it even more hard. "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west". "To lose Game 3 in the fashion that we did and the way that Boston challenged us continuously, we needed all that to propel us to this moment", Irving said.

In the five years since, Durant ran into a wall of continual, heartbreaking roadblocks on his way back to LeBron, who has been waiting at the end of the tunnel each year.

Durant's only other time in the Finals was 2012 when he was with Oklahoma City.

Aside from a Game 3 upset after losing Thomas to a hip injury, the Celtics lost by margins of 13, 44, 13, and 33 points. Now they will face off once again.

"My hip's been a little different my whole life".

Thomas said the Celtics are committed to putting him on the best path to long-term health.

"Just how tough and determined the guy is, to be able to go through the situation he was going through on a day-to-day basis, still being focused and maintaining his focus for the team, you know, family is everything". We knew that Friday was a 46-point disaster. Can James win his fourth ring?

In the first championship meeting in 1952, Layne and Walker ran for TDs to give the Lions a 17-7 win and their first championship since 1935. The latest trip up came when his Thunder blew their own 3-1 lead to these Warriors just past year. The 43 points Cleveland scored in the first quarter set a team postseason record for a quarter. How will Cleveland try to contain Curry? Improved to 36-5 against Eastern Conference opponents in the playoffs since 2015. "But people may want to be careful because I think right now you're witnessing greatness".
