Mendoza: James to resume his kingly ways vs Boston?

Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers

This series should be a ton of fun and luckily no games will be starting at 9PM so everyone should be able to stay up late enough to watch. "He's the best player in the game".

Morris said: "My size". "Circumstances are a little different now".

In spite of the tragedies - including some minor injuries to key players Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown - head coach Brad Stevens managed to get past more talented opponents in the first two rounds of the plafairytaleston's fairy tale success leads one to imagine a full-strength Celtics team with two of their best players surrounded by those who are now keeping the squad afloat.

The Celtics were the best defense in the National Basketball Association this season, and they have a lot of athletic and versatile players that will take their try at James. Boston has won four of the previous seven meetings, but Cleveland has won the last two - including the East finals last season.

James put up 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 10 assists and only one turnover when defended by Morris during those 55 matchups, according to Second Spectrum. If the Cavs are able to advance to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight season, their odds of re-signing James are sure to only go up.

During their last matchup on February 11, Morris guarded James on 30 possessions and allowed just 13 points on 36.4 percent shooting from the field.

LeBron knows the Celtics aren't at full strength entering this series.

If the Warriors successfully defend their National Basketball Association title and go back-to-back, it'll be the franchise's sixth time as the last team standing - and would tie Chicago for the third-most championships in league history, behind the Celtics and Lakers. It was clear from the jump that McConnell was the best player in the minutes he was given. Cut down the easy baskets, and cut down the other guys that are going to score.

"I feel like we more together (than last year)", Rozier said.

Morris suggested the Toronto Raptors didn't offer much resistance during Cleveland's Round 2 sweep. But against Toronto, they would shine. He looked very confident. After 2014, when the Pacers finally had home court advantage, th Lance Stephenson departure, the feud between Paul George and Roy Hibbert and George breaking his leg set thing in motion, eventually breaking up that group and Frank Vogel getting fired. "And there was no help".

I don't really see they're lacking at any position. If that's considered slowing James down for Leonard, then Morris will have a lot of work cut out for him. "They was like, "Hood, that's not really a distraction" because of everything that they've been through this year", he said.

"Boston is better than Indiana", Cavs forward Kyle Korver said. He is going to get his numbers no matter what. One thing that's for certain: You know he believed every word he said.

The Celtics acquired Morris from the Pistons this summer in a deal where the team sent out Avery Bradley.

James gave an interesting answer when asked about the Celtics ability to reach this stage without Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving.

If the Celtics are going to keep their wonderful ride going, they are going to have to do something about the dominant James, and it won't be in the hands of just one defender.

Rozier made it 113-109 with his free throws but then a J.J. Reddick's three pointer got the 76ers back to one point with 3.8 seconds left.

While noting that Stevens is a great coach, James said Friday that he finds the praise of the Celtics boss to be somewhat overblown.
