Part-GTY-944680694-1-1-1

LeBron James is on the verge of reaching the NBA Finals for an eighth consecutive season, but his Cleveland Cavaliers face a familiar and formidable obstacle in the Boston Celtics. The Cavaliers visit Boston on Sunday for the opening game in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals, with the winner to face either regular-season pace-setter Houston or defending champion Golden State in the NBA Finals.

Gordon Hayward update on his recovery: “I’m feeling like an athlete again”

31ed03777486191b4c9e4746fe9e3d7b

Hayward posted to his blog on Friday to praise his Celtics’ teammates and their run through the playoffs, but he threw this in as well. Hayward should be back and rolling at the start of next season. All of that makes the Celtics — who have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals again on the strength of their defense and smart team play — look all the more dangerous.

1d95d84822566c8fde4adfe95346f323

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown wants his emerging team to be active in the free-agent market as he targets an NBA championship. The 76ers – who could have as much as $25million in cap space during free agency, finished the regular season with a 52-30 record and made the playoffs for the first time since 2011-12. Philadelphia topped the Miami Heat in their opening-round series in the Eastern Conference before falling to the Boston Celtics in five games.

Wicked good: LeBron undaunted by Boston, Celtics’ mystique

201805061833667818548

There haven't been any championship banners hoisted into Boston's hallowed rafters since 2008. LeBron James won't let go of the rope. Cleveland's star has bounced the Celtics from the playoffs four times in the past seven years, and James carries a six-game postseason winning streak at Boston into this year's Eastern Conference finals, which open Sunday at TD Garden.

Eastern Conference Finals Preview: Can LeBron Continue His Magical Run?

8d91dd63a1dbc924304102ac40e4be28

The Celtics have overcome injuries to Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving to make a surprise run to the conference finals, winning on the strength of a talented but young roster. The Cavs overhauled their squad midseason (Isaiah Thomas used to be on this team!) and looked to have one foot out the door in the first round, but LeBron James has put together one of the best postseasons of his career to be within striking distance of his eighth straight Finals. On the eve of the playoffs, despite how likely this matchup felt at the start of the season, it would be fair to say a healthy number of prognosticators didn’t expect to see Cavs and Celtics as the last two teams standing in the East.
