James Passes Jordan, Cavs Back In Finals With 135-102 Win

The Warriors and Cavs are 1-1 wins apiece entering the trilogy of National Basketball Association championship rounds.

Jordan scored 5,987 in his postseason career in 179 games from 1985-2003.

Fourteen teams between them, over 21 combined seasons. The Dubs have become laughingstock of the sports world despite having four future Hall of Famers in their starting lineup.

Brazilian hometown favorite Aldo (26-2-0) is the featherweight champ taking on No. 1 contender Holloway (17-3-0). And it likely won't unless the Warriors are able to dethrone the reigning champs. He's one of the most unsafe guys we have in the world already.

The Jordan-versus-James debate, he said, is only "great for barbershops".

But let's get back to Game 5.

Bizarrely, three successive losses befell on Golden State. This series belongs to Stephen Curry. With eight NBA Finals appearances under his belt, he is ready to face a team he's called "a beast".

"I'm going no matter what", he said. The award went to reserve Andre Iguodala.

Just one win in the last three games of the 2016 Finals was what the Warriors needed to seal a rare back-to-back title triumph.

The Warriors seemingly redefined how to shoot the three-ball over the past few years. Cleveland has the edge in the three-point shooting department.

Keep it here for live updates and analysis from Game 5 at the Celtics take on James & Co. It's not about wanting to establish himself as the NBA's greatest player.

"He's moving around a lot more", he said.

He added, "But the times are different, too, and you have to give credence to that".

With that being said, watch how the possession plays out (and read some of my thoughts on specific rotations that would have been optimal in this situation). Kevin Love played like a superstar. Steph is making tough shots, Klay is making tough shots and KD is making tough shots.

These two split their two regular-season meetings: A 5-1 Predators win at home on October 22 against Marc-Andre Fleury after a bunch of players were unable to go because of food poisoning and a 4-2 Penguins' home win on January 31 against Rinne, and without the injured Evgeni Malkin. Are you team LeBron or will this Warriors squad finish out their historic run? In this season's championship game, the better athlete will guide his team to the trophy. But they displayed their superiority over the final two games to wrap up the series. However, his rhythm and confidence issues seemed to grow stronger with every miss, and he made only 31.0 percent of his shots from behind the arc in the series. Game 1 is at Oracle Arena - aka Roar-acle Arena for its decibel level - on June 1.

"All I care about is how well we work together and how much of a team that we play together", James said.

Green: Perhaps the scariest difference for this year's Warriors is that they play lockdown defense of their own.

Avery Bradley one game. Channing Frye's also had his moments, including a five-3 game against the Raptors.

The onslaught continued in the third quarter as Cleveland got off a 20-8 start to extend the lead to 30. Against the Pacers, Raptors and Celtics - the league's 15th, 6th and 8th-ranked offenses this season - the Cavaliers have trimmed it down to a 104.6 defensive playoff rating, which is a bit better than league average. If James comes out of the gate in the same groove he exited 2016 with, then no one in the current National Basketball Association will stop Cleveland from winning its second consecutive title-not even adding a former MVP to a 73-9 team. This season, opponents only made 32.4 percent of their 3s against a long, active, rotating Warriors defense. The biggest stars shine brightest when the lights are on. But c'mon, some of this is rather intuitive, even if the calculations take a little more time to complete.
