Thompson set a new playoff career high.
Isaiah Thomas had 17 points in a Game 1 loss to the Cavs. "I'm looking forward to the challenge".
At one point in the third quarter, the Cavs were 28 of 45 from the floor. He's pretty good. It's kind of hard to not expect it because that's what he does. This guy's seeing it all. Everybody knows that everybody is counting us out. "It's fantastic to watch right now". Share in the comments or on Twitter and let me know. The ownness now falls on Tyronn Lue to decide who's going to take that matchup. "My mind is always racing on how I can make it the best possession at that particular time". As a team, the Cavs shot 48 percent from the field and just 11 of 31 from the three-point line, but this win was about the Cavs' focus as a team as they dominated right from the tipoff and didn't play down to their opponents like they have in the past.
The shoulder was working just fine Wednesday, and he scored in the paint and from the outside. "We've been on the practice court or in the weight room training as if we were playing". "But we've been talking, and he's been ready, and tonight was a huge performance from him". On the boards, making shots, posting up.
Toby Keith to perform men-only concert in Saudi Arabia amid Trump trip
Saudi Arabia is making every effort to dazzle and impress President Donald Trump on his first overseas trip. Also he will meet with President Macron of France, newly elected.
Antetokounmpo averaged career highs in almost all statistical categories including points (22.9), rebounds (8.8), assists (5.4), blocks (1.9) and steals (1.6) per game.
Then, James scored the Cavaliers' final eight points of the half, twice on jumpers after posting up on the left low block, and then, after knocking down a pair of free throws and missing a layup, he finished off a drive with a basket in the waning seconds of the quarter.
It also may have been because many National Basketball Association fans pointed to that series as evidence of LeBron not being able to win on the biggest stage without the help of fellow superstars. No one could cover James. "But we need to do a better job in a lot of ways". Who do you come off of? "So I'm not going to put myself in the position to hurt my team or my teammates". Nothing worked until late when he went extremely small with Jae Crowder as the de facto five.
"Doubling is really scary against these guys, but it may be necessary". He's great at recognizing when (Kyrie) Irving or bringing a screener up that they want to bring up. You can just go down the list. The conundrum is, do you double and risk giving up those easy step-in 3s and the rebounds? "He took seven shots, he made seven shots".
Saying he's treated 'unfairly,' Trump gears up to fight
Brendan Morrow is a Heavy contributor who covers news, politics, professional wrestling, and more. "I guess that's why I won", Trump added. "You can't let them get you down.
Said Brown: "We've got to have each other's backs a little more". Brad Stevens had just finished his first season as a head coach. "They beat us that series, and it stuck with me a lot".
Lue, a former Celtics assistant, said of Thompson, "He's our energy, he's our motor". I think he was like 3-of-11 shooting in the first half, and he just looked worn down and confused. They don't have a defender with the size and athletic ability to keep up.
But we would bet LeBron doesn't ever want to feel the way he felt after the Cavaliers lost to the Celtics that year.
LeBron got into the lane whenever he wanted and the Celtics didn't have anyone capable of slowing him down. I mean, they definitely showed a few bodies that was aggressive on me, but that's nothing I haven't seen this whole year. LeBron basically laughed at Kelly Olynyk when the Canadian got switched onto him, clearly wasted time with six-plus minutes left in the game when he'd get the ball on the perimeter, and even hinted that he could have done more.
