LeBron James almost tackles Bill Belichick during game

Even James himself commented "I'm not taking no legend out".

"We're not where we want to be, but it's great to see what we have right now", James said. Sure. But if we've learned anything, LeBron James is a machine who continues to wow viewers well into his 30s. Horford only finished with nine points, but Thomas didn't understate the forward's impact on the signature win.

When LeBron James went barreling into the stands at TD garden, the Cleveland Cavalier sacrificed a camera man for the sake of Bill Belichick.

Wednesday night match up between two East Conference teams Cavs and Celtics have given you a playoff preview if these two make it to the Eastern Conference Finals. One of his best highlights came in the second quarter when he blocked Bradley's jumper, sprinted ahead and received a pass from James for a fast-break dunk. There was Thomas doing more than holding his own against them, leading all players with 31 points. "I saw D-Will naked in the corner, so I gave him an opportunity and he just missed it". Tristan Thompson, the only Cavalier to start every game, will be able to rest his sore knee while sharing time with Bogut. But the best thing about their newly arrived pieces is that Williams, Bogut and Korver are all worthy of contributing in the NBA Finals.

Said Stevens: "I don't think I'm saying anything earth-shattering: We're all chasing Cleveland". Al Horford shifted over to help, but Irving elevated at the flawless moment.

Look for this pair to be seen again during a possible Celtics-Cavaliers playoff series in spring. During a stretch of the fourth quarter last night, the Cavaliers decided they were going to deny Thomas space at the rim. Williams scored four points on 2 of 8 shooting from the field and went 0 for 2 from 3-point range, with two rebounds and two assists.

- So, just how big was beating the defending National Basketball Association champions, even without the injured Kevin Love in the lineup?

Kyle Korver and the Cavaliers fought hard but fell vs. the Celtics.
