LeBron James overtakes Michael Jordan as Cavaliers reach National Basketball Association finals again

Golden State led the league with 67 wins this season and is a staggering 27-1 in its last 28 games - including a flawless 12-0 in the Western Conference playoffs, the first time a team has gone this deep into an National Basketball Association postseason without losing.

"This team is a insane team". The story lines are plenty, including a few fresh ones, such as acting Golden State coach Mike Brown going against the team he coached not once but twice.

"I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, but when you're growing up and seeing Michael Jordan it's nearly like a god, so I never did believe I could be Mike".

He said the team knew he would eventually be unable to play, but Celtics brass still had to force him to shut down during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Texas lawmakers finalize deal on $217B spending bill
The bill is a response to a Kansas Supreme Court ruling in March that said education funding is inadequate. The Senate's alternative bill would boost state aid to schools by about $240 million by the second year.

James eclipsed Jordan as the NBA's all-time leading playoff scorer on Thursday, May 25 (Friday Manila time) as he led the Cavaliers into a 3rd straight NBA Finals, fueling comparisons to 6-time NBA champion Jordan.

It's one of the numerous reasons Cleveland shot 56.5 percent from the floor in Game 5's blowout win.

He did it with a three-pointer late in the third quarter - the first of a string of three straight from beyond the arc.

James, Irving and Love took command from the opening tip-off on Thursday. He showed no signs of lingering issues, though, beating several defenders off the dribble and handing out seven assists. Deron Williams added 14 off the bench for Cleveland, who led by as many as 39. He finished the game with 23, but the Celtics never came close to mounting a rally.

Ford to cut 1400 jobs in North America, Asia
The cuts are the biggest to Ford's USA white collar staff since 2007, when 7,200 workers took voluntary buyout packages. Ford also isn't likely to cut jobs in its emerging businesses, such as its research center in Palo Alto, California.

"I did pretty much everything that MJ did when I was a kid". "Our offensive mistakes led to bad defense, and it just kind of snowballed on us".

"If some kid or a group of kids from the West Coast or the East Coast or the Midwest or the South and everything in between, all around the world can look at me and say, 'Well, I made the extra pass because LeBron made the extra pass, ' or, 'I got a chase-down block and I didn't give up on the play because LeBron didn't give up, ' that would mean the world to me".

James scored 35 points in the series-clinching victory against the Boston Celtics to reach 5,995 points, taking him past the previous mark of 5,987 set by basketball great Jordan. Improved to 36-5 against Eastern Conference opponents in the playoffs since 2015.

Thomas said the Celtics are committed to putting him on the best path to long-term health.

Flash Flood Watch extended through Wednesday night
A curfew from 7 p.m.to 6 a.m. was imposed in Autryville, a town of about 200 people about 15 miles east of Fayetteville. Tift County's severe weather outlook is listed as "Slight", which is a 2 on the NWS' 5-point scale.

Thomas injured the hip in March and aggravated it in the second-round series against Washington.
