Irving took over in the second half and finished with 42 points, LeBron James added 34 and the Cleveland Cavaliers moved within one win of an nearly inevitable third date in the Finals with Golden State by rallying to beat Boston 112-99 on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.
He also added eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals as the Cavs romped to a 135-102 victory and a 4-1 series win.
LeBron James had one of the worst games of his postseason career, finishing with 11 points and six turnovers.
James, who is chasing his fourth National Basketball Association title this year, finished with 35 points in the game to set a new mark of 5.995 points in 212 play-off games, while six-time National Basketball Association champion Jordan set his record in 179 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 43.5 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. Was he sending a message to his teammates?
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said James' efficiency continues to make things easier for everyone on both ends. "A weird-feeling game".
The 51-year-old Kerr underwent a procedure May 5 to fix a spinal fluid leak stemming from complications after two back surgeries in 2015, after the Warriors won their first championship in 40 years during his first season as coach.
But James wasn't himself Sunday night, not by a long stretch.
Irving said he felt compelled to take over when James was stymied by foul trouble. LeBron and Kyrie combined for 28 third-quarter points, with Irving going for 13 points and four assists in the frame.
Incredibly, he went scoreless over the final 16 minutes. "Playing the game the right way", Brown said.
What's that? A three-time champion, four-time MVP, two-time Olympic gold medalist, global icon, billion-dollar-business-in-sneakers, wasn't confident? "They cause a lot of stress, and I'll get to that point when we start to prepare for them".
Kyrie Irving struggled with his shot in the playoffs before the Eastern Conference Finals. It's not enough for him.
"He knows that. We know that".
But if Games 3 and 4 are any indication, it won't be easy.
Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points.
Celtics star Isaiah Thomas says it's too early to tell if he needs surgery on his right hip. "They just stayed resilient all year, got to the playoffs, and we really stepped our game up", he said.
"Mike, I owe him $100 from when I was a rookie". Because we'll nearly certainly play it again next year.
Thomas didn't travel with the club to Cleveland, but he was part of the postgame fun.
"We can get better". The Cavs chose to go under screens, giving Smart room to shoot and he burned them badly. "He made some last night". "I can't lie", Durant said, when comparing the 2012 Finals trip to this one.
"No message", Lue said. "We lost; it happens". It wasn't his ordinary game. Kevin Love is the third double-digit scorer and Tristan Thompson is grabbing 9.3 rebounds. But then when you look at a situation, most people have never reached greatness.
The 32-year-old had played only 37 minutes all season after coming off the bench in last weekend's win against Everton. Whatever the future holds for Wenger, he said the current Arsenal team can look forward with optimism.
