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

Though Kerr did not address media Thursday, he indicated earlier this week that he would be comfortable going into the NBA Finals, which begin June 1, with acting head coach Mike Brown at the helm.

They trailed by 20 points for the first time in the first quarter after the Cavaliers opened with a 6-for-11 barrage from 3-point range, and were ultimately buried when, for the second time in the series, the Cavaliers finished with 19 3-pointers.

"I feel like Mike was so ... you know, when you're growing up and you see Michael Jordan it's nearly like a God. I just have to keep going and figure out what I've gotta do to come back at the highest level possible".

The Warriors appeared to be in the position to win back-to-back championships as they were on the verge of holding a 3-1 lead over the Cavaliers. The Celtics were reliant on hot shooting from Marcus Smart in Game 3 and, while they had a great first half in Game 4, lost that game's 3rd quarter 40 to 23.

Following the Cavs victory and elimination of Boston on Thursday night, Irving heaped praise on the Celtics and their injured leader Isaiah Thomas. They are now on the same team. The 109 points through three quarters marked the most the Celtics have allowed in the shot-clock era. "Thirty teams suit up every year trying to get to this point, and only two teams do".

Smart, who started in place of Thomas, said, "Everybody had to step up their game, especially with one of our brothers down". We wish he could be out there, but we understand.

The Celtic pride was very real that night. The Cavaliers won 135-102.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were supposed to get there, and they did.

The Cavs" "Big Three' were strongly backed by their reserves.

LeBron James went to the Finals each season he played with the Heat, but was Miami as dominant against the East in the postseason as James' Cleveland teams have been?

He got his fourth foul with just under seven minutes left in the first half and was then taken out for the remainder of the half.

He said his goal is not about passing Jordan in titles, points or MVP awards. Defensively, the Cavs have improved a fair bit since the regular season, but it has been on the offensive end where they looked to have flipped the switch as they averaged 120.4 points per game during the Eastern Conference Finals.

"If we have a great game plan and play inspired basketball, we're tough to beat", Love said.

Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six National Basketball Association titles in the 1990s, played 179 post-season games in his career.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook installed Golden State as a minus-260 favorite, with Cleveland at plus-220, meaning a $100 bet on the Warriors would win $38.46 and the same bet on the Cavaliers would win $220, according to ESPN.
