LeBron James says he's ready for Warriors-Cavs III

"I've played against four Hall of Famers as well, too, with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team", said James, occasionally sniffling as he continues to fight a cold.

The Celtics should have ample cap space this summer but would prefer to spend that money on a big-name free agent that could help narrow the gap between Boston and Cleveland in the Eastern Conference.

Speaking for the first time since the end of his season, Thomas said he might need surgery but it's "not the No. 1 option right now".

"It made me look back to see how fast everything can be taken away from me", Thomas said.

Avery Bradley one game.

The Cavaliers have also not allowed a team to score more than 111 points in a single game in this postseason.

Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors will meet LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third straight year when the NBA Finals get underway next week. "They've been right at the top, best team in the league for three years straight now".

"We match up well with them and I think they'd say the same about us".

All of which partly explains why the Cavaliers of James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have not been challenged in the East during the postseason.

Golden State has glowed in this postseason, becoming the first team to start 12-0 while winning by an average of 16.3 points per game - the highest margin league history. Cleveland, which seemed sleepy at times in the regular season, went 12-1 in the Eastern Conference playoffs that ended with a win over Boston on Thursday night. Here are three things we learned from Cleveland's most recent series win.

What Thomas is telling the Celtics is that he's willing to put his contract talk on hold while the Celtics bring in another player to help them win a championship. Isaiah Thomas, showing his team spirit hit the Celtics with a stunner Friday afternoon. They lost the first two games at home in the first round against Chicago, then came back to win four in a row. Cleveland swept the Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, and then beat the Boston Celtics in 5 games.

The Wizards starting power forward, Markieff Morris, suffered a twisted ankle in game one in that series, but played through the series injured.

Cavaliers' 75 first-half points were the most in an National Basketball Association playoff game half since 2003 and gave them an 18-point cushion. "So when it bounced around, I was actually hoping it went in, obviously, but not completely disappointed that it was bouncing up there".

As good as he's been for the Celtics, Thomas is just coming into his own. "Just watching him move without the basketball, getting easy baskets off of cuts and splits and when he passes the ball he's also relocating now". We've got to come out and play. And that made it this far.

Given, the average price ($2,080) is about the same as previous year ($2,029) and substantially more than in 2015 ($1,465), according to TicketIQ. "I'm glad we prevailed, but they tested us every step of the way". He's scheduled to make just $6.3 million during the 2017-18 season, be a salary less than what the Celtics will pay the No. 1 overall pick ($7 million at 120 percent of the rookie scale). He had taken his post-season career points total to 5,995 by the time he took a seat for the entire fourth quarter - along with the rest of Cavaliers' starters.
