Lebron Leads The Cavs To Another Eastern Conference Finals

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors spent most of the season as the number 1 team in the East Conference. Their dreams of making it to Eastern Conference finals were ended again at hands of Lebron James. The Raptors were swept in the series against the Cavs after a game 4 blow out 128-93.

James has now made it to 10 conference finals in 12 years. Lebron gave all of the credit to his teammates for the win.

“As everyone was burying my teammates alive throughout that first-round series, I was just telling them, ‘Listen, we can’t win without each and every one doing their job and being as great as they can be,'” James said. “I continue to preach that. It’s impossible for me to lose confidence in our ballclub, no matter what the stakes are or what we’re down.”

As for the Raptors, the writing is on the wall that team will have to reset their roster.

“You’re looking at probably one of the guys that’s going to go down as one of the greatest ever, and it’s a matchup nightmare for anybody,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “We’ve seen it with Michael [Jordan], we’ve seen it with Kobe [Bryant], we’ve seen it with a lot of great players … for whatever reason, we got the unlucky draw every year, going against him.”

Kemba Walker had the game of lifetime Saturday night against the Sixers.

Walker bet Klay Thompson’s season-high 52 points with 60 point performance in an overtime loss.

“I’m still proud, that’s an unbelievable thing to do right there,” Walker said of scoring 60 points. “I’m just mad that we lost. I’m a competitor. It would have been even better with a win.”

The Jimmy Butler played spoiler forcing the crucial block and draining the game-winner.

“As much as I wanted the shot to go in to win the game, I also wanted it to go in because I didn’t want Kemba to give me 70,” Butler said with a laugh. “I wanted it to stop at 60.”

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called Walker’s effort “amazing and incredible.”

“We tried double-teaming him, we tried hard-hedging him,” Brown said. “The reality of it is, is that you have Joel (Embiid) and Jimmy in that situation a lot and he is doing that against two all-league defensive players. He is just hard to guard and he is really unique. … Sixty points in an NBA game against a pretty good defensive team is a remarkable effort.”

Walker finished 21 of 34 from the field and had six 3-pointers. He made all 12 foul shots and had seven rebounds and four assists.

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey today issued a statement on forward Carmelo Anthony’s future with the team.

“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” said Morey. “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.”

Melo can be claimed off waivers.

LeBron James moved into fifth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, climbing past Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain.

James needed 39 points to claim the fifth spot from Chamberlain. He passed Wilt with a free throw in the fourth quarter.

“When I’m able to do what I love to do, and do it at this level — and even being mentioned with the greats that have ever played this game — it just always brings me back to my hometown of Akron, [Ohio],” James told ESPN’s Dave Pasch on the telecast after the game. “And knowing where I come from, knowing how hard it was to get to this point — it’s just never being in satisfied mode. I give it all to the man above for giving me God-given abilities. I’m taking full advantage of ’em. And then my coaching staff and my teammates throughout these 16 years so far, have gotten me to this point.”

“If he stays healthy, the way he’s looking and moving, he has a chance at Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar),” Dirk Nowitzki previously told ESPN. “His numbers have been unbelievable. He doesn’t seem to slow down. The stuff he was doing last year in Year 15 was incredible. If he keeps this up, he can pass Kareem.”

Next up for Lebron is passing Jordan.
