Celtics star Isaiah Thomas unsure if he'll need hip surgery

After stomping out Boston in Game 5 Thursday to reach his seventh straight Finals, James said he wasn't in the right frame of mind to talk about the Warriors because "they're too stressful."

The Cavaliers' point guard took over Game 4 against Boston on Tuesday in the third quarter, scoring 21 points in the period and 42 in the game to beat back any designs the Celtics had on evening things up. Both the Cavs and Celtics shot 47 percent in the first half of Game 4, then Kyrie and company chose to go supernova, rattling off 40 points on 72.7 percent shooting in the third quarter.

While there have been 14 rematches in NBA Finals history, this year's meeting between LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors will be the first trilogy in league history.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will be the underdog against the Golden State Warriors as the NBA Finals get underway next week.

Cleveland took its foot off the gas in Game 3.

Cavaliers: James has scored 30 or more points in 11 of Cleveland's 13 games this postseason. Was he sending a message to his teammates?

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue called it "a weird game, a weird-feeling game". "A weird-feeling game". Cleveland won the three road games in the series by a combined 90 points, the last two by a total of 77.

Now here comes Game 4, with James picking up personal fouls at a pace commonly seen by his defenders.

We'll see what kind of chirping ensues between Green and the Cavs. He took just three shots and didn't attempt a free throw in the fourth quarter.

Bad enough that the Cavaliers' superstar, a.k.a., "not an MVP finalist this year", had taken hits for almost 48 hours by tipoff Tuesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Celtics star Isaiah Thomas unsure if he'll need hip surgery

What's that? A three-time champion, four-time MVP, two-time Olympic gold medalist, global icon, billion-dollar-business-in-sneakers, wasn't confident? Let's regroup and get back to playing desperate basketball ... "That's what I always think, when people of his stature or people like him, you've got to play confident the whole night and play aggressive".

Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love's roles as LeBron's sidekicks will be scrutinized and reevaluated throughout the series. For what he does, what he brings, it's not enough.

"They care about my health, not just being a basketball player", Thomas said. The best way to do that would be to extend the seven game series to at least a best of 19. Instead of holding a 16-point lead at half as they did in Game 3, the Cavs found themselves in a 10-point hole searching for answers with LeBron on the bench. The fans simply wanted to show their appreciation because they are unsure if their beloved star will return next season. "It should be the same for us", James said. "In the back of my mind, I was like, I'm saying to myself. they can not tie up this series".

"I think it is making us better".

Thomas didn't travel with the club to Cleveland, but he was part of the postgame fun. "Only because I feel we have some unfinished business from last season". The Cavs chose to go under screens, giving Smart room to shoot and he burned them badly.

Lue says when he was a rookie on the Lakers, Brown challenged him in a shooting contest for $100.

Then he hit a jumper with nine minutes left in the third, his first jumper made all night.

The Celtics played well early, but couldn't hang with Irving and James in the end. Usually, he hangs around to work on his game, but on this day No. 23 wasn't visible.

"Hopefully", James said that night, "I don't continue to have to run into him". "We lost; it happens". "You guys are gonna have the conversations about who's the greatest of all time and things of that nature, it doesn't matter to me". He's human. He didn't shoot the ball well.

On July 4, with a 351-word post on The Players' Tribune, Durant announced he was joining the Warriors.

Mourinho added: "I am really happy with our season, with the trophies, to be back into the Champions League ". United finished 24 points behind champions Chelsea, with a league-high 15 draws.
