Montreal Canadiens vs. Detroit Red Wings (1954-56) The first matchup of this trilogy started with one of the most memorable in 1954. There are exceptions though. "It's cute.". The Cavaliers' 43 points in the first quarter made Cleveland the first playoff team since the 1990 Celtics with three 40-point quarters in the same series.
For as much as the Celtics accomplished this season, from Thomas' rise to superstardom to Al Horford's helpful fit and progress up and down the roster, they sit in the latter category for now. "If not, then we'll wait until next summer and then we'll see where we go". They played great basketball this year. Here's a look at how they've performed thus far.
Added Smart, "We have to be nearly ideal playing against those guys". I don't really have anything to say. It was 2010 and I was still in high school (sorry) lamenting if the Mavericks would ever put a good enough team around Dirk Nowitzki to win a championship while binging Mountain Dew and Taco Bell.
But the Cavaliers and the Warriors have all the marbles on the line. The Cavaliers won 135-102. SportsCenter can't get enough of the memories and stories those two franchises produced during their rivalry. I don't know. That's insane. Out since April 23, when he announced he was taking a leave of absence to address chronic pain in the wake of multiple back surgeries almost two years ago, Kerr has been a constant presence the past two weeks but not on the bench during games.
After torching the Celtics for 35, James now sits at 5,995 postseason career points. The defending National Basketball Association champions, who shot 71 percent in the second half, opened a 3-1 lead in the series and can wrap up their third straight conference title - and a "three-match" against the Warriors - with a win in Game 5 on Thursday night in Boston .
It was a wrap early . When asked if surpassing Jordan as the NBA's all-time leading playoff scorer would be part of chasing his ghost, King James flat out said, "Nah", before clarifying his original statement. He did it with a three-pointer late in the third quarter - the first of a string of three straight from beyond the arc. Irving scored 10 points in the quarter after James sat down, and went off for 21 in the third on his way to a game-high 42 points.
The Lions won the first two and the Browns took the third. Mike Brown is set to face his former team as the interim coach of the Golden State Warriors , but he might not even be in charge if Steve Kerr is healthy. Thomas said today that in the locker room after Game 2, when the Celtics medical staff decided the condition of Thomas' right hip was too deteriorated for him to continue playing, he insisted he was adamant about playing.
Sato has been something of a successful journeyman during his IndyCar career, joining with KV Racing for his first ride in 2010, finishing 21st. "You're only as good as your last race ". Not even the Super Bowl can achieve those numbers in that moment, live, as an event. Having said that, technology is a huge part of IndyCar racing, and I think particularly with our partner Verizon, you can get on your phone with the IndyCar app and see everything-throttle position, speeds-I watch it.
Obviously adding an MVP to a team that already has a two-time MVP makes them even more impressive. With a three-pointer with 2:40 left in the third quarter James , 32, surpassed Jordan's 5,987 playoff points. Throughout the season, Golden State averages 116.2 points per game while allowing 104. What if Thomas came into the series fully healthy rather than severely hampered by the hip injury that eventually forced him to sit out the last three games of the season? "And they've ...
If the Anaheim Ducks thought they had taken control of the Western Conference finals after dropping five goals on the Nashville Predators on Sunday, they thought wrong. "Usually when I get the puck in those types of positions, everybody is expecting me to shoot it", Subban said. And when we say big, we mean they were literally big guys.
Three-time champion LeBron James , who along with teammate James Jones will be in his seventh straight NBA Finals (it will be James' eighth overall), certainly understands the enormity and uniqueness of the upcoming series, but the four-time league MVP wasn't quite ready to look ahead after eliminating Boston .
It got more hard for Chelsea as Victor Moses was sent off for a second yellow card in the second half, just as Chelsea had shown intent in pressing for an equaliser. While Chelsea finished 18 points ahead of Arsenal in the table despite suffering a 3-0 defeat at the Emirates in the early weeks of Conte's tenure, a one-off final on the wide expanses of Wembley's lush turf looks hard to call.
Thursday was Media Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Alonso regularly races for McLaren's Formula One team and is skipping this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. Alonso said he felt his biggest handicap in the race would be his lack of experience of running in groups of cars at speeds of 230mph. "My worst start in row seven".
He's also been finding some decent from on the PGA Tour but he always enjoys heading back to the comfort of the European Tour. "I wasn't alone in shooting a high score on Sunday", the 36-year-old added. The condition of the greens also came in for criticism from the likes of Luke Donald and Justin Rose , with two-time victor Donald suggesting in 2015 they needed replacing for the second time in six years.
The start was important and after the goals we controlled the game. "So now it's for him, it's for the owners, it's for the people that work him and I just wait - but I don't care about football now". The club is now a club with every title in world football. "It means a lot for me and the club and the boys". Bosz, who put out the youngest ever side in a European final , led Ajax to the decider with swashbuckling displays of attacking football throughout the competition.
The last time that happened when James played all 12 minutes in the final quarter was in a 2005-06 regular-season game vs. Washington. The three-time National Basketball Association champion had three points on 1-for-8 shooting, one rebound and one assist while playing 22 minutes.
Boston may be playing its last home game here, but the fans should be fully behind the team in an effort to stretch the series by sending it back to Cleveland . We have to have low turnovers, and we have to try to make them miss because some of those guys play a lot better at home. In other injury-related news, Stevens confirmed comments made earlier in the day by Danny Ainge regarding Isaiah Thomas' right hip injury which led to the Celtics shutting him down for the playoffs ...
How did James do it? We saw it again through two quarters of Game 4. There is no room for error, just don't play him. Irving's 42 was also the highest playoff point total for any teammate of LeBron James . James almost gave Cleveland the lead, too, but missed a breakaway dunk. "He was just waiting for an opportunity to blossom". "I've twisted my ankle so many times on plays like that", Irving said.
