Dan Gilbert Staying In The Present As Cavs Advance To Finals

Adjust Comment Print

LeBron James does it again.

But in the early going it looked like the Warriors would do just that. This is a team that made a franchise-changing trade last summer, remade the roster at the trade deadline, finished 29th in defensive rating in the regular season and nearly lost a seven-game series against the Indiana Pacers in the first round. J.R. Smith, the nearest defender, had his head turned. Just in the moment, made a play. "You get these guys on a roll, and they can hurt you".

"I turned on the TV last night and there were points in the game when you didn't know how it was going to play out", Curry marveled.

James' option for next season is for $35.6 million. James didn't look very pleased (and borderline shocked) with the bump, but Tatum said he meant no disrespect by it after the game. Throughout the season we saw superstars shoulder the load carry their team, deliver game winners and come through when it counted. In the postseason, they have not exactly transformed into a typical title contender, but they have papered over their flaws and persevered. "I truly believe that". If James hadn't averaged 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists throughout the playoffs, the Cavs wouldn't have advanced past the first round if they even made the postseason to begin with.

Democrats say briefings did not support Trump's claim of Federal Bureau of Investigation 'spy'
It goes like this: President Donald Trump makes a ridiculous accusation that nearly everyone immediately understands to be false. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who attended the first Republican-only briefing, also declined to discuss what he learned.

LeBron James did eventually establish his pace, putting the game on ice, but not because Tatum crumbled under pressure.

"He's unbelievable. He's the best player in the world and I'm glad he's on my side".

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue called James' performance in the Game 7 victory Sunday over the Celtics the best of his career.

Quite a contrasting couple they made - the physical spectacle that is James, and Green, the Celtics' No. 1 pick in 2007 who required open-heart surgery in 2012 to fix an aortic root aneurysm at - irony alert! - the Cleveland Clinic. "I think when you have so many challenges and things throughout the year that we've had and people have had around here - individual stuff, team stuff - and then you come out in really tough playoffs, full rounds, just there's really something special about it". The Celtics have more playmakers and two-way players than the Cavaliers. "We worked too hard this season to go home". But they just kept getting better through these playoffs and won their first three home games in this series by a total of 51 points. "But more importantly, just the work that I put into it". I spent four years here, and the opportunity was right there, and I wanted it bad. This was another slow-paced game (85 possessions per team) and neither team was shooting well from deep, making rallies that much more hard. We're still confident. We're a confident group.
