Brad Stevens knows what's ahead of Celtics in LeBron James, Cavs

Cavs send huge message to Kyrie before the East Finals start Video

Most people, despite the reports which have come out, have arrived at the conclusion that the point guard wanted to be the focal point of a team once more, which is what he was building towards before LeBron James' return to Cleveland in 2014.

Kyrie Irving left for the Boston Celtics previous year because he was not allowed to be the Scottie Pippen to LeBron James' Michael Jordan according to former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin.

James sees things few others do and is able to anticipate what the defense is about to do and make the right play at the right time an astounding percentage of the time.

After a seven-minute clean-up, Belinelli recovered to make a 23-footer at the start of overtime, followed by a three-pointer from Redrick.

Gerard Pique also took a dig at Real not giving them a guard of honour when he addressed the crowd. I wish him the best as a footballer and person.

Cleveland won those four games over the Raptors by an average of 15.25 points.

"There's literally nothing you can show him that he can't do", Griffin said. The only difference was, as good as Irving was offensively, James did not need him like Jordan needed Pippen. Pictured: LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kyrie Irving #11 of the Boston Celtics defend each other during the second half at TD Garden on January 3, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts. And I remember saying, 'Oh this is not good. Bron thought and went 'I want that, ' and he's so damn good he can incorporate it into his own game. What am I capable of? I'm not a better defender than he is'.

After downing the Philadelphia 76ers in five games in the second round of the playoffs, the Boston Celtics brace themselves for a different challenge in the conference finals.
