LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's playoff scoring record

CLEVELAND- The Cavaliers beat the Celtics, 112-99, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Cleveland Tuesday night.

Isaiah Thomas is due for a monster pay day next summer, but the Boston Celtics guard is willing to put that on the back burner in order to help his team.

These teams that have spent much of the post-merger days near the bottom of the standings were the cream of the crop in the 1950s led by star quarterback Graham and innovative coach Paul Brown in Cleveland and Lions Hall of Fame passer Layne and running back Doak Walker.

It will mark the seventh straight trip to the Finals for James, who hit a 3-pointer late in in the third quarter to nudge past Jordan on the playoff scoring list. James spun around and asked the man to repeat himself. "Not just in the second half". "We just kept grinding". But me, personally, I didn't have it. That was my mindset when I started playing the game.

In addition to leading all scorers he had eight assists and eight rebounds. Ruth had three homers in the Series, including one in the decisive sixth game.

Canada ensured their quarterfinal position with a 28-14 win against Japan and will meet Argentina in the quarters on Sunday. New Zealand beat Canada 19-14 only after Joe Webber tracked down Canada's Jones metres from the line.


Detroit took the first two games, 17-7 and 17-16. He had six rebounds and six assists, but also committed six turnovers, including a costly miscue down the stretch when his pass was stolen by Jae Crowder.

Coach Tyronn Lue said they've gotten tighter this season. And. that's it: Those were the only three times in major American sports that two franchises played each other in back-to-back-to-back championships before this year. We knew that coming into tonight. "We have to be ready for the challenge".

His season is over because of a hip injury, and although he's not around, his presence was felt by his teammates who rallied to keep their season alive. Even [Celtics president of basketball operations] Danny [Ainge] and those guys say that, so that says a lot about who they are as people. "We wanted to get this series over and done with". They took advantage of a watered down Eastern Conference and made the most of their opportunity.

"Some adversity is all part of the postseason", he said.

Durant's decision to leave the Thunder for Golden State as a free agent last summer meant the Warriors went from mere overwhelming favorites to win the West again to super-duper-overwhelming favorites to win the West again. "Let's go Celtics", sang the fans. Simple as that. It's good that we're here now.
