Cavaliers vs. Celtics 2017

The Warriors were back in the NBA Finals, and they had a 3-1 lead against the Cavaliers, the same team they defeated for the championship the previous year. Not worry about what it says in Vegas or what people are saying about underdogs.

While the Celtics captured the top seed in the East, they never led in any of their home games in the series. Here's everything you need to know including Cavaliers vs. Celtics Game 3 live stream with the Watch TNT app and more.

The Cavs coasted-and that's being polite-through the regular season before flipping the switch and going 12-1 in the Eastern conference playoffs.

And then, nearly as if he was trying to remind himself that he's got three championship rings and is frightful in his own right, James recalled other fearsome postseason opponents - San Antonio and Boston. "I told our guys: 'We made a lot of great strides, but this pain is part of the path to what we ultimately want to be'".

"I've played against four Hall of Famers as well, too, with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team", said James, occasionally sniffling as he continues to fight a cold.

"Honestly we didn't want IT to go down", Irving said.

Now, Brown will be facing James as an opponent in the finals. Like, am I the reason that they're not that good (laughs)? "It's tough to say that we didn't expect it; we knew they'd be right there".

Golden State already is the first team to begin a postseason 12-0, and the Warriors would love to go unbeaten the entire way - as daunting of a challenge as it would be to do so against King James and Co.

Cleveland-Golden State 3.0 is the matchup fans worldwide expected and wanted, and James believes they're in for quite a show.

Then, after spending much of his free time flying cross-country to be with his family, Thomas had a tooth knocked out in Game 1 of the conference semifinals against Washington.

Green, for one, will appreciate all the hype around this series. He's been present at practice and recently traveled with the team at the end of the Warriors' sweep against the Spurs.

The Cleveland Cavaliers pose with their trophy after winning Game 5 of the NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics 135-102, on Thursday, May 25, 2017, in Boston. They're coming out and their hitting us, and they don't care who you are.

"Well, I think collectively you take away what elite looks like, because I think we saw it first hand, especially in these home games", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. In 2012, James and the Heat lost Game 1 before beating Durant and Oklahoma City four straight times.

"It's hard for me; I'm kind of in this basketball mode", Myers said.

Boston's Avery Bradley tried to fight back with 14 points in the second quarter.
