King James has another throne. That being said, the Green-and-White still vastly exceeded expectations this season. Now, it's time for the rubber match. He watched Game 5 in street clothes. And the Celtics , a team that without Thomas relies heavily on ball movement, timely cuts to the basket and the need to knock down open shots, simply failed to once again take advantage of the opportunities - and there weren't many - the Cavs afforded them.
Game tomorrow against a tough Cleveland team. "I know a lot of people are bummed out about the result". Lonzo Ball to the Lakers at No. 2? "I think that they can add to our team and help us in some capacity, but I think it's unsafe to think that a 19-year-old's going to come in and transform our franchise".
They built a 16-point lead early in Game 4, but fell victim to a waterfall of buckets from Kyrie Irving and LeBron James . Lue told reporters Wednesday that since the Celtics lost All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas to a season-ending hip injury in Game 2, Boston has become nearly impossible to scheme against.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said though he's disappointed with how the season ended, he's encouraged that no one in Boston's locker room is satisfied just making it to the conference finals. "I told him not to take the moment for granted". But they displayed their superiority over the final two games to wrap up the series. Game 1 will be held at Oracle Arena on Thursday, June 1.

"Therefore, I just believe the club has a big job to do during the summer because you want to keep big players like Alexis and end all the speculation that could happen".
He essentially turned the hallowed Brickyard into his own personal playground. Six races later, his first ever on an oval, Rossi won the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 . He crashed out of the 2007 and 2012 races and his 13th-place finish previous year was his worst result when he actually finished. "There was so much more grip and it's just very different to what I've experienced", said Button, the 2009 F1 champion.
Reports by Chinese newspapers and websites on AlphaGo's victory Tuesday were brief, despite Ke's post-game news conference being packed with scores of reporters.

The protagonist on the court traditionally has become LeBron James, who had to score 28 points to beat Michael Jordan and become the most productive player in the history of the playoffs.

Garcia, 37, said he knew he hit "a good shot", but it could have gone "three yards past" the hole, or done "anything".

"I hit a couple of tee shots practising on Monday and just didn't feel right and I've been getting treatment on it", McIlroy said.
On Saturday night at THE PLAYERS, my back began to flare up. And it wasn't just that hole. A three-putt bogey at 12, a routine par at the accessible par-5 16th and a wayward shot at the closing hole ended his chances - especially since Kim played bogey-free in the final round.
United's style in winning the trophy has been questioned, with Ajax head coach Peter Bosz branding it a "boring" final , but Mourinho defended his club's style of play. "We have won a trophy the club has never won so we are really happy". United manager Jose Mourinho told reporters: "If we could, we would obviously change the people's lives for this cup, immediately".
Wenger also added that he was unsure whether Saturday's game will be his last at the club. "You want people to enjoy life, it's absolutely unacceptable and really sad". Gabriel has been ruled out for 6-8 weeks but he confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will be fit for the clash. "We came back to training on Tuesday and we want to get ourselves ready".
But the game was overshadowed by the deadly suicide attack at Manchester Arena, which also left dozens injured. "It meant a lot for the club, for us, especially for the city of Manchester", he told reporters. Wednesday night saw Wayne Rooney lift a third trophy of the season after United beat Ajax 2-0 in the Europa League final , but his introduction as a late substitute underlines how his status has changed.

Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray , playing on his 23rd birthday, stopped 27 of 29 Senators shots. Chris Kunitz scored the game-winning goal, but when Ian Cole talked about him after the Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final on Friday night, he focused on another moment.
With a win tonight, the Sens would make their second Stanley Cup Finals appearance, whereas the Penguins would be making their sixth appearance. The Pittsburgh Penguins , not to mention other talented teams in the National Hockey League, continuously have to deal with inferior teams who take liberty with the rules when they know officials will not call the game correctly.
With the home victory, Pittsburgh won its second straight Eastern Conference championship and will now seek to add another Stanley Cup title after winning the fourth in franchise history last season. Meanwhile on Elgin Street: is there anything more Canadian than firefighters supplying a generator so that hockey fans can watch the big game in their favourite bar? As for idiosyncrasies, this will be the first NHL Final with two coaches from the United States.

But he said both he and his teammates continue to be inspired by their leader. "It's making us work", the Cavs coach said. "This team is a insane team". He showed no signs of lingering issues, though, beating several defenders off the dribble and handing out seven assists. And there will be reminders of the Halloween party that James threw for the Cavaliers last fall, with "3-1 Lead" - a nod to what the Warriors lost in last year's Finals - prominently displayed on the drum set.
James came alive in the fourth and scored 15, of his 34 points, in the period. "He was ecstatic. I told him I channeled my inner IT and he kind of laughed a little bit", Marcus Smart said, per Forsberg.

With the Eastern Conference finals-clinching win, the Cavs are heading to their third straight Finals, but for LeBron, this will be No. 7 in a row. Kyrie Irving scored 24 points (13 in the third quarter) and Kevin Love added 15 and 11 rebounds - again, all in three quarters.

Boston cut the Cavaliers' series lead to 2-1 as their improbable victory came despite the absence of star guard Isaiah Thomas , who is out for the remainder of the season with a hip injury.

That indignity will cost Arsenal an estimated £50 million ($65 million) in revenue and increase the pressure on Gunners boss Wenger, who has endured a miserable season filled with fan protests and calls for his resignation. And Manchester City , who Arsenal could have overtaken on goal difference, won 5-0 at Watford. Manager Jurgen Klopp signed seven players in the 2016 summer transfer window after the German coach took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers back in October 2015.
