The 33-year-old will finish the regular season leading the league in points and minutes played.
"You usually go nine", he said. I'm sure LeBron could care less about winning MVP and cares more about winning championships, but if he does not win MVP this season the league needs to reassess how they hand out the trophy. Their best chance will be to contain him and let other Cavs beat them, but that's obviously much easier said than done. To appreciate where this team stands now - a No. 4 seed, 50 regular-season wins, homecourt advantage in the first round, a healthy LeBron James and a shot at a fourth straight Finals - we must first consider the depths from where the Cavaliers came.
James went over 2,000 points, 700 rebounds, and 700 assists for the season. Westbrook, Harden, Curry and Durant - to make a play that wins a game or a series. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue plans to use a 10-man rotation during Cleveland's opening-round playoff series against Indiana.
US, allies strike Syria over suspected chemical attack
More than 80 people were killed, and images of adults gasping for air and babies on respirators drew world outrage. Trump indicated the strikes would continue until the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons ends, reports CNN.
The Cavaliers earned the fourth seed after the Philadelphia 76ers won their final two games to secure the third seed.
Following Wednesday's regular-season finale, James stamped this as-yet-unfinished season a personal triumph.
The three-time champion also extended his record of scoring at least 10 points to 873 games, a mark once owned by Michael Jordan (862), the player James has spent his entire adulthood being compared to and the one he has equaled on many measures. Game 6 shifts back to IN on April 27.
For the second year in a row, the Cavaliers and Pacers will be facing off against each other in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Farewell Winnie Madikizela Mandela
He said those who had wronged her were among her mourners on Saturday. "But her contribution can not be overlooked", he said. Supporters from all over, many clad in the ANC colours, flocked to attend the service.
Game 1 is set for tip-off at 3:30 p.m.on Sunday at Quicken Loans Arena. Game 2 will be played in Cleveland on Wednesday before the series heads to in for Games 3 and 4 on Friday, April 20 and Sunday, April 22.
Against the Pacers, Love will start out battling athletic Myles Tuner (12.7 ppg, 6.4 rpg), then likely confront the ever-improving Domantas Sabonis (11.6, 7.7) off the bench. While Oladipo was unbelievable during the regular season, it will be interesting to see whether he can react well to the added pressure of carrying his team's offense in the postseason.
James has faced the Pacers in the postseason four times during his career. They will face the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs. James (27.5 points, 9.1 assists, 8.6 rebounds) and Love (17.6 points, 9.3 rebounds) have been the two most consistent options for Cleveland, and it falls on them to lead the team through an Eastern Conference that'll give them issues.
