No one has had an answer for James lately.


James has largely been superhuman throughout his career, but even he has limits. James is 32 years old and has played more than 41,000 regular-season minutes and nearly 9,000 playoff minutes. He appeared to be visibly exhausted at times when he came to the bench, especially in the third quarter of Game 2. Averaging a triple-double and guarding one of the best scorers of all time can do that.

He dismissed any stamina issues when speaking to media members Wednesday, but James’ numbers from the second half of Game 2 show he may have to save something for the reserve tank.

That just didn’t happen nearly enough. But the Celtics are not alone. No one has had an answer for James lately.

“He’s been so special for us,” teammate Kevin Love said. “We know what he brings to this game as a whole, brings to this league, our organization. Every night he brings it for us, sets the tone, and it’s no different. There are so many different milestones and accolades that have come his way, and me being here for, this is my third year now, having seen him accomplish so much is truly special.”

These are heady times for James. He is in that rare career space in which he still has his peak athleticism while also reaching the heights of his mental ability. He can read a defense in an instant, and has the spring in his legs to react quickly. And against every defender he has faced, he has been able to create a mismatch — able to outthink as well as outperform.

“I have always been so impressed with his mental understanding Cheap International Soccer Jerseys of the game,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “He’s always picking the matchup that he wants. It’s hard to believe, but he’s better than when I got into the league and I didn’t think he could get any better than that.”

NBA Finals: This 3-1 lead isn’t same game, and Warriors can prove it in Game 5


We’ll grab ahold of explanation as to how we got there and what comes next. Hours before Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, pockets of midges, the bugs that once chewed up Joba Chamberlain’s neck in the 2007 ALDS, hovered in the alley leading into Quicken Loans Arena. The Kardashians showed up before tipoff. You could even point to Dwyane Wade’s getup. Anything could be an omen, but we’re back in a familiar place.

That’s the best answer. Golden State isn’t in trouble of any kind unless they whiff in Game 5. That’d put the series at 3-2, and Cleveland would be every bit as much as a tough out Cheap International Soccer Jerseys at home as they were in 2016. At that point, the momentum is flipped, and you’re still dealing with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Doesn’t that feel like last year?

How would the two teams fare when matched up against each other? We turned to the incredibly popular video game NBA 2K17 to find out.

The NBA 2K series has a great track record with its simulation engine. Last year, when rumors began to swirl that Kevin Durant might consider joining the Warriors, it showed that doing so would lead to an NBA title by beating the Cavs and an MVP award. This season, it predicted Warriors over Cavs at the start of the year and determined the most likely NBA Finals result would be a 4-1 series victory with Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys Durant winning Finals MVP. Can’t get more accurate than that.
