No surprise: It's Cavs-Warriors in the NBA Finals yet again

"This is a great moment, and this is not promised", James said after scoring 35 points and becoming the NBA's all-time leading playoff scorer in a 135-102 blowout of the Boston Celtics in Game 5 on Thursday to clinch the Eastern Conference title. Not the way we wanted to finish, but we came a long ways from the beginning of the year, came together. "I think that goes with coaching staff and players and anybody just has to get better, just to get back to this situation and get over the hump".

"They care about my health, not just being a basketball player", Thomas said. Aside from that, the Celtics were losing for all 144 minutes played in Boston.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were supposed to get there, and they did.

"[The Cavaliers have] been here before", Marcus Smart said. The Celtics have won a record 17 National Basketball Association championships, and as such, their home arena is full of banners recognizing successful teams and honoring the greatest players in franchise history. "You always come around when we lose, I swear".

Maybe the most discouraging thing for Boston - beyond not having a healthy Thomas for this series - was the way Cleveland dominated.

For the sake of the Cavaliers, we hope to see the dominant James, because the James we've seen since game three will not cut it against a stacked Warriors team, which is resting and waiting for them.

It was a very welcomed sight in Irving's case, after he rolled his left ankle in the third quarter of Cleveland's Game 4 win. "To not be able to go back out there in that second half and continue that series was painful". In the 3 games that were played in Boston, the Celtics did not lead for a single possession, with only one tie occuring in those three games, early in today's game with the score tied at 3 - 3.

"We're definitely disappointed. I feel like if we weren't, there'd be a problem", Bradley said. "It sparked a little bit of motivation for each and everybody in our locker room to get better".

James was asked whether he could envision a rematch with the Celtics in next year's East finals. "They have a great team right now".

"At the end of the day, you play the game that's in front of you", James said.

We are going, going, back, back, to Cali, Cali.

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. "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". "I have no idea".
