Cavs in 5. I think Boston gets one at home.

I agree H2 dad. If they take the first game, it ups the stakes a little.

I think that unless Horford is setting the pick, Isaiah Thomas is going to see a ton of traps. I see them trapping and muscling him all game.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
If the Celtics win game 1, I think the series ends 4-2 in favor of the Cavs.

It seems like an eternity since the Cavs last played. Did they just set the NBA record for longest rest period between two series? They have aged quite a bit since they last played, so I hope LeBron didn't lose a step.

Cavs will only lose 2 games this whole postseason.

MAYBE one in this series and 1 in the finals, but I am projecting the two losses come in the finals.

I can't imagine any team beating the Warriors in 6 much less 5.

Especially since the banged up Spurs aren't putting up any resistance. I never thought the Spurs would win the series, even healthy, but I was hoping they would at least take GS to 6 or 7 and be physical. Now it looks like a pretty easy sweep and some rest for the Warriors.

The Celtics are so done for the year. Pathetic.

61-24. LeBron may not need to play a minute in the second half.

40 point lead in the first half. This has to be some sort of playoff record.

That is the most embarrassing half by a conference finals team in history.

Cavs are a matchup nightmare for the Celtics, but there's no way a team with this much talent and good coaching should be getting run off their home court like this.

Officially the largest lead at half in playoff history.

Anyone who thinks LeBron James is not the MVP of the league and the best basketball player in the world simply does not know a thing about basketball. Period.

Those two things are not the same thing. And he is not the MVP of the league this year. He didn't even finish top 3 this year per the finalist list released earlier today.

I think we have to realize that regular season MVP in the NBA just isn't as significant of an award as it is in other sports. The NBA regular season is rather meaningless, and LeBron knows that by now so he saves his absolute best for the playoffs.

LBJ comes out, likely for the night, up 45 points with a minute forty left in the 3rd.

Very true. The Celtics didn't have a chance in this series anyways, but I think they lost it in their final regular season meeting when Cleveland smoked them at the Garden. They know they can't play with or beat the playoff Cavs.

Which part?

That the two are not the same? Well they aren't so yes that's accurate.

That he is not the MVP of the league this year? Well he isn't so yes that's also accurate.

That he didn't finish top 3 in MVP voting this year? Though also accurate, an argument can at least be made for him over Leonard (but the Spurs won 60+ games). Westbrook and Harden had better regular seasons.

He's definitely the best player on the planet. There's no one with the combination of his size, strength and quickness. Plus as he's getting older, he's developing a consistent outside shot which sometimes failed him in his earlier seasons.

Disappointeded. I was looking for a post from Brian about the Cavs blowing homecourt advantage to the Celtics.

Brian is MIA...he's probably calling for Francona's head on the Indians threads.

I think if Cleveland beats Golden State, it will be in 7 games. But I think GS is going to take it this year. Two great teams though.
