LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's playoff scoring record

Posted May 28, 2017

LeBron James is walking history, and he added more chapters to his incredible career Thursday night, leading a final vanquishing of the Boston Celtics as the Cleveland Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference finals with a 135-102 Game 5 victory. The Celtics started Game 4 in the driver's seat but lifted by Irving's 42-points, and James' 34-points, the 3rd and 4th quarters belonged exclusively to the Cavs.

The 2017 NBA Finals mark the eighth time LeBron James has been to the NBA Finals.

While Jordan (179 games) did play in 33 fewer games than James (212 games) did, Jordan (4,497 field goal attempts) took 120 more shots than James did (4,379 field goal attempts) to get to 5,987 postseason points. He said the team knew he would eventually be unable to play, but Celtics brass still had to force him to shut down during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They were able to work up three choruses of it when LeBron James silenced them with one 3-pointer and then another.

On July 4, with a 351-word post on The Players' Tribune, Durant announced he was joining the Warriors. With preseason predictions putting their win total in the 50s, Boston went 53-29 en route to a division crown and a surprising No. 1 seed.

Putting a huge arms deal at the center of the visit also plays into the hands of foes who say US policy is driven mainly by money. Trump essentially picked a side in the religious, sectarian and political split that has engulfed the Middle East.

Their fans were neither naïve nor ignorant so much as they were appreciative of how National Basketball Association championship teams are built.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue chuckled before the game when he was asked if he planned to say anything to James following his sub-standard performance in Game 3.

This year's NBA Playoffs have seemed less like an actual contest and more like a needless delaying of the inevitable, with both the Warriors and the Cavs virtually steamrolling their way through to their date with the finals.

I know the Warriors are motivated for this series and Draymond said he wants to kill the Cavs after the way previous year ended. Durant signed a two-year, $54.3 million contract with the Warriors last offseason.

Trump won the state by a healthy 56%-35% and his approval rating is still above water in internal polls from both parties. Quist's campaign said he had raised $5 million, including more than 200,000 contributions averaging just under $24.

The Celtics, who were blown out by 44 points at home in Game 2, won despite being without star guard Isaiah Thomas. The Warriors finished sweeping the Spurs in the Western Conference finals on Monday and are waiting for the Finals to begin.

Heck, it would have been nice for them to at least own a lead in one of their home games, if even for just a minute or two. It starts with James, who is in his seventh consecutive NBA Finals. "The stuff they're running, it's harder to defend than Golden State's (offense) for me, as far as the actions and all the running around and all the guys who are making all the plays, so it's a totally different thing".

The Los Angeles Lakers had set the previous record of 12 straight wins in potential elimination games from 2000-2004. "We have to be ready for the challenge".
