James says Jordan chase is about motivation, not greatness

Gerald Green, one of Thomas' closest friends on the team, then Facetimed Thomas and the locker room roared when an excited Thomas appeared on the screen.

LeBron wasn't too shabby himself, scoring 34 points on 56 percent shooting (including 15 points in the fourth quarter) to help the Cavs stave off the Celtics to claim Game 4, but he knows the situation down the stretch could have been much different had it not been for the heroics of Kyrie Irving after he left the game with foul trouble. He'd played 13 of 18 possible minutes when he was subbed out.

"Coming out at half-time, I just wanted to be aggressive and lead my guys and leave it all out there on the floor", Irving said.

He does deserve a pass on Sunday because LeBron has been playing at breathtaking pace starting with Game 5 of the 2016 NBA Finals. When you're watching Michael Jordan it's nearly like a god. "Again, sometimes I think that - I'll go look at it and see all the things that we did wrong, but I think it's more of a tip-your-hat kind of thing..."

How can the starting point guard of the defending champions, who has averaged 21.6 points over his career, "remind the National Basketball Association how important he is?" He quickly flashed one finger as he backpedaled down the court. Join the Chowder and Champions team!

But there's no denying that his accolades are putting him in the orbit of Jordan, his boyhood idol.

"The kid is special", James said. "He was just waiting for an opportunity to blossom". "That was my mindset". Regardless, LeBron and the Cavs bounced back for a Game 4 victory and lead the series 3-1. But he said both he and his teammates continue to be inspired by their leader.

"You can't", said Lue to Joe Vardon of cleveland.com after they asked if he began to gameplan for Golden State.

"This team is a insane team".

Heading into Game 3, the Cavaliers could not of been on a higher note. Why watch the backups duke it out in the fourth when I could get some extra sleep for the start of the week? The Cavaliers won 101-93 and swept the Celtics in the opening round of the playoffs.

I think the Celtics will come out playing hard, attacking the Cavs relentlessly. Throw in five rebounds, seven assists and all-world defensive effort and you have a giant killer.

Because his shot was not landing, Smart tried to get to the paint. "We should be a lot better in Game 5". Perhaps Deron Williams has something to do with the Cavs' success? Improved to 36-5 against Eastern Conference opponents in the playoffs since 2015.

Thomas was largely ineffective in those two games with just 19 combined points and 16 total assists. Held a pregame moment of silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing. He did not travel with the team to Cleveland and Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that doctors might need the swelling in his hip to subside a bit more before he can get more definitive results.

"That's no excuse. They played well, but we've just got to play better, be more physical".
