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".

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 Celticsregular 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.
