NBA Finals Set To Tip Off Next Thursday, June 1

NBA Finals Set To Tip Off Next Thursday, June 1

As they celebrated defending their Eastern Conference title Thursday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers weren't ready to focus on defending their National Basketball Association championship. The Cavs will return to the NBA Finals to face the Warriors with a win on Thursday.

While speaking to reporters after his team closed out the Boston Celtics, LeBron said he was not in the right frame of mind to talk about the challenges the Warriors present because it is "too stressful".

I'd heard numerous critics of these actions from journalists past year, stating that it wasn't in the spirit of the competition, yet it clearly seemed welcome in that series and there was no lack of competitive spirit, just good sportsmanship; which was unfortunately lacking in today's Game 5.

They were supposed to play the Golden State Warriors there, and they will, deciding the league title for a third consecutive year.

"Just how tough and determined the guy is, to be able to go through the situation he was going through on a day-to-day basis, still being focused and maintaining his focus for the team, you know, family is everything".

With Cleveland in jeopardy of dropping its second game in a row after James followed an 11-point Game 3 by picking up four first-half fouls, Irving put on a breathtaking one-man show in the third quarter.

Some 115 firefighters were on the scene within 70 minutes and about 160 were there by 3:30 p.m., Stewart said . The canyon was shut down at Sunset Boulevard to accommodate firefighting operations, LAFD officials said.

Memorial Day fuel costs down
The national average price is up 4 cents from the start of the year, which is the smallest increase ever measured by GasBuddy . Association analysts say the increase in gasoline prices is likely the result of rising demand and crude oil prices.

Samsung to unveil world's first 'stretchable' display panel

Avery Bradley led the Celtics in scoring with 23 points in Game 5, but he understandably celebrated very few positives after the loss. He rose to the occasion and he put the team on his back, and we definitely needed that effort from him. "It's just my personal goal to keep me motivated - that's all".

"The best team in our league the last three years", James said of the Warriors.

"It was a matchup that we were all looking forward to, and I'm glad that we prevailed", Irving said. But with roster that has three of the league's best players in James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, not to mention a capable and experienced supporting cast, it was hard to make a case for any team other than Cleveland coming out of the East.

James scored 15 and Irving 13 in the quarter, with James hitting three bombs in the final 2:41. 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 Cleveland's starters.

The way they responded Tuesday night - particularly on the defensive end - is a good sign for their prospects of wrapping up their third straight Eastern Conference crown on Thursday.

The Celtics were 9-9 during a playoff run that capped a successful season. "Now we can start focusing on Golden State to get ready". Will we see the best player in the world who dominates every aspect of the game?
