Lebron was awful in the second half but the Celtics dug themselves out of a big home and deserve credit.

The game winning shot was laughable - Cleveland inexplicably collapsed and left Bradley open. The shot bounced around the rim about five times before dropping by they all count!

Normal service resumed in the East, although surprisingly in spite of Lebron rather than because of him.

LBJ tried his best to lose the game.

When on form one of the best to ever play the game. When not on form he must be a complete nightmare to play with and his place on the court has to be questioned

He was very chippy last night. I love him but his missed dunk was absolutely glorious.

Perfectly valid comparison. He probably won't eclipse MJ but he's absolutely incredible.

Finals start tonight. Either the Cavs in an all time classic seven gamer, with Lebron reaching what, in hindsight, will be seen as the absolute pinnacle of his career (even more so than last year) or the Warriors in five.

Think GS will be too strong and might even do it 5. I see the format is HHaaHaH now - used to be HHaaaHH. Not sure what difference that makes though. The times are a pain in the a**e. 2am is both too late and too early if you know what i mean.

Amazing to think LeBron is the underdog here. He might be the most gifted basketball player of all time.

Think this might come down to Klay v Love and who outscores each other. Think KD & Curry v LBJ & Irving will even itself out.

Klay has been very quiet so far in the play offs, hopefully he steps it up

Klay has been quiet in part because it's all been so easy for GSW with no injury worries. I think he has one absolute eruption of a game still in him this year. Love is also playing what is certainly the best basketball of his Cleveland career and possibly of his whole career.

Think it may well come down to the bench to be honest, and Cleveland's is probably that little bit more reliable. Not necessarily better, but more reliable. I wouldn't want to be counting on JaVale f**king Magee to hold things together for a few minutes.
