3 reasons why the Cleveland Cavaliers easily dismantled the Toronto Raptors

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving Cavs 3 reasons why the Cleveland Cavaliers easily dismantled the Toronto Raptors

While Boston has not enjoyed a fraction of that success under Stevens with James walking off the victor in eight of nine playoff games, Rozier feels this year might be different.

The NBA is down to its final four, with the Conference Finals starting on Sunday night at 8.30pm, Irish time, when James and the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Boston Celtics in a first to four wins, best of seven, series for the Eastern crown. They also have a player named LeBron James on the roster. The one-week or so furlough could be crucial. You dream about being able to play in big games in the NBA, and even when I got to the NBA that was one of my only goals: to be as great as I can be, to play in big games in the NBA and be remembered, and I think I've done that in my career.

When guys like J.R. Smith, Kevin Love, Kyle Korver and George Hill deliver the goods of their own, they make the job of winning easier for LeBron, who totaled 136 series points, adding his Game One 26 points, Game Two 43 and Game Three 38.

Now, LeBron's team is at its weakest point coming into Boston.

"First off, because it is Cleveland, we have to see what happens on Tuesday [draft lottery], because these dudes win lotteries". It would've been thrilling to see James go up against Irving in the Eastern Conference Finals, but we'll have to settle for this Cavs vs. Celtics contest. We do a lot of running mechanics, physical therapy, a lift of some sort, and then court work for another few hours.

LeBron James, commander-in-chief of "LeBronto", played like himself in this series but more-so to the nth degree.

Jets overpower Predators, reach 1st conference finals
Just how far they go will depend largely on the pads of goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup victor with Pittsburgh. It's an inaugural season no one saw coming, but a Cinderella story that will be forever remembered, regardless of its ending.

The Celtics may not have anyone of James' stature, but they have a complete team that's clicking. They'll have five guys out there at all times that can play. What I like about the Warriors options is that they can rotate a lot of different players onto Harden and Paul so there's always a fresh defender.

"They've got a couple", he said.

During his last 11 regular season and playoff games against a team which had Marcus Morris, James has averaged 21.1 points per game while shooting just 16.3 percent from 3-point range, and he did not reach 30 points in any of those matchups either.

"We didn't want to go back to Philly", he said. "It's nothing against the defense", said Terry Rozier. "But just with me, Al (Horford), Terry, Jaylen, we've been here from that team from past year, just kind of letting guys know it's not going to be easy". He played the first four games, missed 68 games because of injury, then was persona non grata in the postseason. ESPN Stats and Information - responding to a query from Fivethirtyeight's Nate Silver - said it was the first time since at least 1991 that a team trailing 0-3 was that heavy a favorite in Game 4. Feel free to check out our online sportsbook review to get a closer look at what they offer.

"I know they are down at 2% or whatever but they are in the same slot that they were when they won the Kyrie lottery". Despite what most people think, Houston had the sixth best defensive efficiency rating in the league this year at 103.8. "You dream about being able to play in big games in the National Basketball Association".

"Every time we come to the play-offs he has that edge", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of James. But Boston led the league in defensive deficiency, so, they're a good defensive team. Those two should anchor Philly's run for the next decade, a Russell Westbrook/Kevin Durant tandem of sorts that should make them playoff regulars until they are in their 30s.
