James dominates as Cavs beat Celtics 114-91 in East showdown
Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have won nine of their last 11 games and they will be aiming for a third straight win tonight after cruising past the Knicks in a 110-94 win on Sunday.
"It'll be a fun game", Jefferson said. WatchESPN also streams live on the Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, and other set-top streaming devices, allowing fans to watch the Cavaliers vs. Celtics showdown streaming live to their TV sets. That means if the two finish in a tie, the Cavs would get the higher seed, which in this case means the top seed. and with that, home-court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Cavaliers travel to Boston, as they try to take the tiebreaker from the Celtics. However, it is important to remember that Cleveland had a similar period of struggle past year, during which they fired head coach David Blatt and eventually went on to win the title against a historically talented Warriors team. If Boston wins, they still have to sweep their remaining four games to clinch the #1 seed if Cleveland wins out. Still, LeBron's comments may be more honest (at least from his own perspective), and they show the difference between how some athletes see regular-season games and the narratives some media and fans try to craft around them. Oklahoma City has won 16 in a row over Philadelphia. James is as lethal as a passer as he is a scorer because Cleveland surrounds him with fellow stars Kyrie Irving (25.1 ppg.) and Kevin Love (19.1 ppg.) and a bevy of 3-point shooters (a franchise-record 986 made 3-pointers). But it was big for Cleveland, too, even if not all of the players thought so. Jae Crowder is listed as questionable with a sore left elbow. "We love the drama".
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Russell Westbrook fell a rebound short of an historic triple-double, but he scored 45 points, including a late 3-pointer that helped seal Oklahoma City's victory over Memphis. Thompson isn't a big-time scorer, but his presence on the glass will be missed, as he averaged 9.3 rebounds per game prior to the injury. James had five combined triple-doubles over his first two seasons since returning to the club.
James recorded assists on six consecutive Cavaliers third-quarter baskets and, in the process, captured control of the game.
Celtics: It was just their third 20-point loss this season. Smart leads in steals with 1.6 per game. Boston is 10-3, straight up but just 6-7 ATS their last 13 games. "I averaged 10 points for four years".
Line: Rockets -9.5. Total 223.5. The offense flowed like it hasn't in months, with crisp ball movement leading to a deadly volley of 3-pointers that lit up the scoreboard. There is a good reason though.
However, heading into that game, they're going to be in an awkward position with some conflicts of interest. Golden State all over again.
"I know they're excited, as well". So there is enough evidence for more overs to hit. If anyone is underestimating them now, they won't be able to do so for much longer without consequences. The Warriors in particular are on a hot streak despite an unhealthy Kevin Durant, winning 10 out of their last 10.
