    Game 4 - Celtics at Cavaliers
    May 23, 2017


    Eastern Conference Finals - Game 4 (Cavaliers lead 2-1)
    Boston at Cleveland (TNT, 8:30 p.m. ET)


    Down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals and trailing by 21 points in the third quarter of Game 3 on Sunday night at Quicken Loans Arena, Boston (62-36 straight up, 50-46-2 against the spread) reminded sports fans of why we play the games. Even with its best player Isaiah Thomas back in Beantown and ruled out for the rest of the playoffs with a hip injury, Brad Stevens’s squad pulled off one of the biggest stunners in recent NBA postseason history by rallying to capture a 111-108 win over Cleveland.

    With the score knotted at 108-108 after Kyrie Irving pulled the Cavs even with a brilliant left-handed layup in traffic with 10.7 seconds remaining, Avery Bradley knocked down the game-winning 3-pointer after he was left wide open on the left wing. Al Horford set a great screen on Tristan Thompson, who tried to help after J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert got confused on a switch and both went with Jae Crowder as he sliced to the basket.

    Bradley’s shot left his hand with 2.8 seconds remaining. If he gets nothing by nylon, Cleveland would’ve burned its timeout and had the ball at halfcourt with a chance to tie with one second and change remaining. However, Bradley’s game-winner gave true definition to Tim Brando’s signature phrase, “the iron was kind.” His shot hit the rim four different times, burning clock in the process, before falling in with 0.1 seconds left. In this scenario with less than 0.3 ticks remaining, you only have time for a tip so the Cavs didn’t even use their final timeout.

    Boston won outright as a 16.5-point underdog, hooking up money-line supporters with a remarkable 18/1 payout (paid $1,800 on $100 wagers). The 219 combined points slipped ‘over’ the 215.5-point total on Irving’s late score.

    Marcus Smart was the catalyst for the Celtics, scoring a career-high 27 points thanks to 7-of-10 shooting from 3-point range. Smart added five rebounds, two steals, one block and seven assists compared to only two turnovers. Bradley contributed 20 points, three boards, two steals and four assists without a turnover, and Crowder had 14 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Al Horford finished with 16 points and six assists compared to merely one turnover, while Kelly Olynyk produced 15 points, three boards and two assists without a turnover. Jonas Jerebko took advantage of every second of his 12 minutes and 32 seconds spent on the floor. He had a team-high +22 plus-minus ranking, 10 points, five rebounds and one assist without a turnover. Jerebko hit all four of his shots, including both 3-point launches.

    Smart’s 3-pointer with 5:43 remaining pulled Boston even at 95-95. Following a Cleveland timeout, J.R. Smith put the Cavs back up with a trey. But Olynyk put the Celtics into the lead with back-to-back buckets off of assists from Horford. Down 101-99, Smart kept a possession alive with consecutive offensive rebounds that resulted in Horford draining a 3-ball for a one-point advantage with 3:03 left.

    After the lead changed hands twice, Horford’s drive for an easy bucket put Boston in front, 106-103, with 45 ticks remaining. Next, Smith responded with a trying triple at the 36-second mark. Then after great ball movement, Jerebko knocked down a 22-footer for a two-point lead with 30 seconds left.

    Lebron James missed all four of his 3-pointers and made only 4-of-13 attempts from the field. He finished with 11 points, six assists, six rebounds and six turnovers. When James has been held to 15 points or fewer in his postseason career, his teams have lost 10 of 11 times.

    Irving had a game-high 29 points and seven assists. He hit 10-of-15 FGAs and buried 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. Kevin Love scored 28 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked three shots. Thompson finished with 18 points and 13 boards, while Smith contributed 13 points and eight rebounds.

    Cleveland won the rebounding battle by a 46-38 margin and went to the free-throw line three times as often as Boston (36 FTAs compared to 12). Nevertheless, Boston pulled out the win thanks to 18-of-40 shooting from downtown (45.0%) and more steals than turnovers (10-9). The Cavs coughed up 15 turnovers.

    Boston will attempt to repeat its same formula used in the Chicago series in Round 1 when it goes for a Game 4 win Tuesday night at Cleveland. This time around, however, Thomas won’t be around to help like he did when the C’s won four in a row over the Bulls after dropping the first two games of the best-of-seven set. Through 15 playoff games, Thomas averaged 23.3 points, 6.7 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.

    As of early Monday night, most betting shops had Cleveland (61-32 SU, 43-46-4 ATS) installed as a 15-point favorite with the total in the 215-216 range. Bettors could take the Celtics to win outright for a 14/1 return at The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas (risk $100 to win $1,400).

    For first-quarter wagers, the Cavs were favored by seven points at most spots. The total was 53. They were 10.5-point home ‘chalk’ for first-half bets, while the total was 104.

    VegasInsider.com NBA analyst Chris David offered his thoughts on the total for Tuesday: “Along with everybody else, I was stunned that Cleveland lost Sunday but I wasn’t surprised that its offense cooled off after great performances in Boston. The Cavaliers have been clicking on all cylinders in this year’s playoffs but for whatever reason, Boston’s defense has been better on the road in the postseason and it made the necessary stops in the comeback,” said David.

    He continued, “I also believe Cleveland helped the cause with its poor shot selection. Everybody has been chucking more in the playoffs but Sunday’s stat line was ridiculous as 55 percent of their field goal attempts (70) were from 3-point land (39). Even though the Cavaliers have plenty of shooters, they learned the hard way in Game 3 and tried to play keep-up with the Celtics, who were on fire from distance in the win. To put things in perspective, Cleveland was 2-of-17 from 3-point land in the second half after hitting 14-of-22 (63%) from downtown in the first 24 minutes.”

    “From a betting perspective, I leaned to Cleveland’s team total ‘under’ (115) in Game 3 and Tuesday’snumber is in the same neighborhood. I would press that wager one more time and I would lean to the game total ‘under’ as well. The Celtics aren’t going to hit 18 triples again and I also don’t believe Cleveland will be screwing around with a double-digit lead. Once the Cavaliers get up, they’ll bleed the clock and prepare for Game 5 in Boston and end this series before they lose more valuable days of rest.”

    The ‘over’ is 2-1 in this series so far. All three totals have been at stake on the last possessions of the final minute.

    The ‘over’ is 10-6 overall for Boston in the postseason, but the ‘under’ is 5-2 in its seven road assignments. The Celtics have won four of seven road playoff games outright, going 5-2 versus the number.

    The ‘over’ has cashed at an 8-3 overall clip for the Cavs in the playoffs, hitting in all five of their home games. They are 4-1 SU and 2-3 ATS at home in the postseason.

    As VI’s Kevin Rogers points out here, Cleveland was in this same scenario (up 2-1) against Toronto during last season Eastern Conference finals: “The Celtics have been the epitome of inconsistency in the playoffs by losing the first two games to Chicago in the opening round before winning four straight. Boston failed to win a road game in the second round against Washington, but still advanced. Now, the Celtics erased a 21-point deficit in Game 3 without their best player to extend the series back to TD Garden.

    “Since 2010, LeBron James-led teams are 16-4 prior to the NBA Finals off a loss, but there is one nugget to focus on heading into Game 4. In this stretch, James’ squads are 1-2 SU/ATS in Game 4 of a playoff series after losing Game 3 when jumping out to a 2-0 lead. Last season, the Cavaliers lost to the Raptors in both Games 3 and 4 in Toronto after blowouts the first two games. The only win in this situation actually came in overtime at Boston in the 2011 semifinals with Miami as a slight one-point favorite.”

    Tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Eastern on TNT.

    Warriors ready for third straight Finals
    May 23, 2017


    SAN ANTONIO (AP) Kevin Durant does not need to be told that Golden State should have a muted celebration after winning the Western Conference Finals.

    Durant is fully aware a tough challenge waits for them. It's why Durant signed with the Warriors and why Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green embraced him at the expense of their own stats.

    ''We have a bigger goal in mind,'' Durant said.

    Golden State has a chance to earn their second championship in three years after sweeping the San Antonio Spurs with a 129-115 victory Monday night.

    The Warriors became the first team in league history to open the playoffs 12-0, which provides them with a week of rest prior to their third straight finals appearance.

    Golden State will host Game 1 of the NBA Finals on June 1 against either Cleveland or Boston. The Cavaliers hold a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, but Curry alluded the Warriors are expecting a rematch with LeBron James and company.

    ''We all know, obviously, who we're going to play,'' Curry said. ''We'll be watching the Eastern Conference Finals to see how that unfolds. But it will be easy to start this new chapter and really just lock in on what's in front of us.''

    Facing Cleveland will resurrect chatter of Golden State's collapse in last season's finals, which saw the Cavaliers rally from a 3-1 deficit to win the franchise's first championship.

    ''This year is a totally different year, different group, different journey,'' Curry said.

    The biggest difference is the addition of Durant, who left Oklahoma City in the offseason to sign with Golden State.

    His presence has given the Warriors a deep and talented roster headlined by four All-Stars in Durant, Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said to credit talent as the sole reason behind Golden State's current run is disrespectful.

    ''They're really talented, but that's not everything that describes them,'' Popovich said. ''This is maybe the best defensive team in the league on top of everything. So, they don't just play with talent. They execute at the defensive end of the floor. On offense, no team is more unselfish finding the open man and that sort of thing.''

    The Warriors have shown their strength by blasting through the playoffs in the normally rugged West.

    Golden State is shooting 50 percent from the field while averaging 118.3 points in 12 playoff games. As good as the offense has been, it's been the Warriors' defense that has been key to their playoff dominance. Golden State held San Antonio, Utah and Portland to 102 points and averaged 9.2 steals per game.

    ''I think our defensive intensity has been amazing,'' Green said. ''Overall, I think we've done a great job locking in on the defensive side, scrambling around, trying to take away team's No. 1 option. That doesn't necessarily mean the player, just trying to make them go to a second or third option in the set and also trying to cover that. I think we've been doing a great job of that.''

    The addition of David West and Matt Barnes has given the Warriors two more defensive-minded players off the bench to go along with Andre Iguodala and JaVale McGee.

    Still, Golden State coach Mike Brown knows better execution is critical in the finals.

    ''We feel like we can play better,'' said Brown, who is filling in on the sideline for an injured Steve Kerr. ''To get to our ultimate goal of winning the whole thing, we've got to be better on both ends of the floor.''

    As a 23-year-old playing with the Thunder. Durant learned a heightened effort is needed in the Finals. Oklahoma City celebrated advancing to the 2012 Finals only to be steamrolled by Miami in five games.

    Experience has taught Durant that winning the West is no reason to relax or celebrate.

    ''Yea, it's a little different, definitely. I can't lie,'' Durant said. ''I went when I was 23-years-old, and it felt like the Western Conference Finals was almost like the championship. Just getting to that point, you know how hard it is and how much work you put in to start the season. So, it's a little different now, obviously.

    ''I feel like we could definitely be better.''

    Warriors coach Kerr uncertain for NBA Finals return
    May 23, 2017


    Steve Kerr's status for the NBA Finals remains an uncertainty.

    The third-year Golden State Warriors coach has missed his team's last 10 playoff games as he deals with complications from back surgery two years ago entering the team's third straight Finals appearance.

    "Just day-by-day," Kerr told ESPN website The Undefeated of his status on Monday night after the Warriors completed a four-game sweep of the San Antonio Spurs with a 129-115 win in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Kerr, 51, traveled with the team for the final two games of the series in San Antonio for the first time since he took an indefinite leave on April 23. Sources told ESPN that Kerr continues to be in "a significant amount of pain and discomfort" and that he has not made significant progress.

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob pledged his support to his friend and coach.

    "He is a fantastic coach and a fantastic human being and a great friend," Lacob told ESPN. "I told him the other day, 'I don't even want to talk about or think about anything other than winning this championship. You can contribute in any way you can, and we'll worry about the future in the future.'"

    Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called Kerr's health woes a "crap situation."

    "He's done a phenomenal job and when you're going through that pain every day and that frustration of not being able to do what you want to do, it's hard to enjoy it at the fullest level," Popovich told reporters before Monday's game. "So I feel bad for him all the time. But I'm hopeful stuff will get figured out."

    Golden State awaits the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA Finals begins June 1 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif.
