Jaylen Brown Questionable with Hip Injury Suffered in Game 4 vs. Cavaliers

29 Mai, 2017, 09:57 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Warriors claimed their title in Cleveland in 2015, the Cavaliers won game seven in Oakland previous year.

But they also showed how badly they need him.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will square off in the NBA Finals for the third straight year in a series that felt like a foregone conclusion pretty much all season. "[Surgery is] not the No. 1 option right now, but it could be once the swelling goes down", Thomas said Friday while addressing reporters at Boston's exit interviews. "The ones we gotta look at are the ones he got at the rim". "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".

LeBron James, who scored 35 points on Thursday night in Game 5 as the Cavaliers finished off the Celtics, expressed his admiration for Thomas after the two stars embraced on the court.

Kyrie Irving backed up his massive game four with 24 points and seven assists, while Kevin Love had a double-double, adding 11 boards to his 15 points.

James entered the game 27 points behind Jordan. The Celtics never led in any of the games in Boston, trailing by as many as 50 in Game 2 and 39 on Thursday night before both teams emptied their benches.

"There are more moments to come where we'll be tested, especially on the West Coast playing against a great team like the Warriors. We match up well with them, and I think they'd say the same about us".

NBA Eastern Conference Finals
After an 11 point performance in Game 3 that saw him fail to score in the 4th quarter, a bounce back game was in order. James has career averages of 28.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.0 blocks in the postseason.

After signing Al Horford in the offseason - the biggest free agent acquisition in the history of the NBA's most-decorated franchise - the Celtics rode him and Thomas to the No. 1 seed in the East.

The Celtics regular season win total of 53 was their best since the 2010-2011 season when they won 56 but lost in the second round of the playoffs that season in five games to none other than James and the Miami Heat. But they displayed their superiority over the final two games to wrap up the series.

NOTES: Celtics G Isaiah Thomas (right hip injury) visited with an undisclosed specialist to determine the course of action for his surgery.

After playing three halves against the Cavaliers, the Celtics said Thomas was done for the season. Here's the box score from Game 5 and my three takeaways. We'll go from there.

"Definitely feels different", Irving said.

As it is, the closest active players to him - Tony Parker (4,012), Dwyane Wade (3,871), Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) and Manu Ginobili (3,009) - are all nearing the end of their careers, and they aren't all that close to begin with. They're coming out and they're hitting us, they don't care who you are.

He didn't make the All-Star team this year and is not yet being mentioned with the all-time greats, but consider this: by general consensus, ball handling today has evolved far beyond what it used to be.
