Cleveland Visits Boston to Launch NBA Eastern Conference Finals

We never try to hide our mistakes, especially when the prospect of our being found out is inevitable, so we want to set the record straight.

Recently, we reported that the NBA Eastern Conference Finals would get underway in Cleveland, with the Cavaliers facing the Boston Celtics, but in point of fact, Boston has the home court advantage to start the series as they finished the 82-game regular season of the NBA with the best record in their conference, earning them the number one seed.

There was one other occasion when we thought we were wrong, but we were mistaken.

Boston’s home court advantage may not prove to be much of an edge, however, as they had to go the full seven games in order to eliminate the pesky Washington Wizards. The Celtics closed out that series and face the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers in Boston on Wednesday evening (Thursday PM AEST).

Over in the Western Conference, Aussie Patty Mills and the San Antonio Spurs are just two games away from seeing their season end as the Golden State Warriors, playing without Kawhi Leonard, routed the Spurs 136 – 100. They got yeoman-like performances form Stephen Curry and Keven Durant.

While many NBA fans would pay dearly to see any team other than Cleveland represent the Eastern Conference, it would appear that the more pertinent question would be whether or not one Stephen Curry plus one Kevin Durant equals one LeBron James.
