With their 135-102 win vs. the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday, the Cavaliers will face the Golden State Warriors for the third consecutive time in the NBA Finals. Not the way we wanted to finish, but we came a long ways from the beginning of the year, came together.

Late in the 4th, Jaylen Brown took a rough fall, and the Cavaliers on the court came over to offer him a hand and help him up, only for their hands to be swatted away and them to look back in shock and awe. Durant wants a ring and what better way than to get his first by beating the player that snatched his initial moment from him.

Thomas said there is not a timetable until more tests can be run, but he has full confidence knowing Celtics coach Brad Stevens and president of basketball operations Danny Ainge will keep in mind the best path to his long-term health. Aside from that, the Celtics were losing for all 144 minutes played in Boston.

This Cleveland Cavaliers Cavs team is not the same as past year. We've made a lot of mistakes that you can't make at this stage.

Maybe the most discouraging thing for Boston - beyond not having a healthy Thomas for this series - was the way Cleveland dominated. But with roster that has three of the league's best players in James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, not to mention a capable and experienced supporting cast, it was hard to make a case for any team other than Cleveland coming out of the East. "We'd love it if we could win in four games, that would be great", Green said with a smile. "We feel like we should be here, and we feel like we should be a championship-contending team".

For the most part, they've succeeded, but it doesn't all work. "It's just a shame that it has to be dragged out into the public". Bruckheimer had a definite idea about how he wanted to approach making Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge .

"And honestly we didn't want IT to go down", Irving continued.

The Cleveland regulars were 16 of 33 from behind the arc through three quarters - after the Cavs went 19 of 39 on treys in a 44-point win in Game 2. The Boston Celtics clearly had something to say about that. "It sparked a little bit of motivation for each and everybody in our locker room to get better".

"That's a question that none of us can answer in here", James said. James and Jones have both earned themselves a ticket to their 7th straight finals, the only players to achieve such a feat since; ironically, the core Celtics players of the 60's. "They have a great team right now. Crowder. So, they got a lot of tough guys that are going to compete so they're making us compete, which is good for us".

The injury knocked the Boston point guard out of the Eastern Conference finals in Game 2. "I have no idea".
