NBA Finals: Warriors strong favorite over Cavs (latest odds, schedule)

Thompson joined James on the press conference stage after Game 5 in Boston and had some great reactions to a joke LeBron made when comparing himself to Jordan.

Lebron James surpasses Jordan

The win sets up a third consecutive match-up with Western Conference champion Golden State, the team it beat in the finals last season to claim the franchise's first championship. Before the game, James said, "It's just a personal goal of mine. And if and when we get to that point, I want to annihilate them". With a three-pointer with 2:40 left in the third quarter James, 32, surpassed Jordan's 5,987 playoff points.
