Lebron makes history last night leading up to the trilogy with the Warriors
Well the Cavaliers weren’t able to match the Golden State Warriors playoff record of 12-0 heading to the NBA Finals, but they were able to dismantle the Boston Celtics with ease 135-102. Could you believe that some people actually picked the Celtics to win this game and force a Game 6? Lebron has been a man on a mission, and this closest this game was is when it started off at 0-0.
So much for people thinking Boston was better off without their superstar Isaiah Thomas, they could’ve used another scorer last night if they had any hopes of having another game at home. Avery Bradley was the leading scorer with 23 points on 10-for-20 field goals, but he’s not a superstar and can’t fill the shoes of Thomas at the moment. Jae Crowder had 11 points on 3-for-8 from the field, but couldn’t cook up any magic in Game 5. Al Horford went missing from the get go only putting up eight points on 4-for-8 shooting before anyone even noticed he was still on the floor. The Boston Celtics have the number one pick in this years NBA draft, and this is honestly the least of their concerns at the moment. Trying to figure out who they take #1 overall is still puzzling at the moment, and whether Isaiah Thomas is playing with a clover on his jersey next season also remains as another big question for them this offseason.
So much happened last night where do I begin? Well for starters Lebron James is making his seventh yes his SEVENTH NBA Finals appearance since 2010. The MJ comparisons aren’t going to die out anytime soon, but there’s no doubt that accomplishment can’t go unnoticed. Obviously Lebron would prefer to have more than three championships in seven appearances, but there’s a damn good chance he gets his fourth this year. Speaking of the MJ comparison he surpassed Jordan for most points in playoff history. Lebron needed 28 and he went out and got 35 on 13-for-18 field goals, 4-for-7 from three-point land. In 179 games MJ had 5,987 points in 4,497 attempts. Lebron surpassed him in 212 games now with 5,995 points, but it took him fewer shot attempts with 4,397. Lebron didn’t stop there he also went on and passed Manu Ginobili for most three-pointers made in the playoffs. Take that for Data!
Lebron’s supporting cast remains strong. Kevin Love had 15 points on 5-for-13 shooting and hasn’t slowed down. Kyrie Irving had 24 points (9-for-15 fg’s), and he has been very consistent and after all these non-competitive games and blowouts we’ve gotten as fans, this years Finals looks very promising regardless of who you have winning. From this morning the Warriors are already straight out of the gate heavy favorites to win it all in 5 or 6 games. If you ask me that’s disrespectful to the king. Look at the way Lebron has responded after it was announced that he wasn’t even in the top 3 for MVP candidate this year. Now he has to wake up and hear all week till June 1st about how the Warriors are heavily favored to knock off his Cavs with ease? Please, if anything this will only motivate the king to prove to the doubters why they’re wrong again.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/lebron-makes-history-last-night-leading-up-to-the-trilogy-with-the-warriors/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/LEBRON-BANDANA-620x330.jpg?fit=620%2C330&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/LEBRON-BANDANA-620x330.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1BasketballBoston CelticsCleveland CavaliersGolden State WarriorsNBALeBronWell the Cavaliers weren't able to match the Golden State Warriors playoff record of 12-0 heading to the NBA Finals, but they were able to dismantle the Boston Celtics with ease 135-102.
