Celtics-Cavaliers Preview

CLEVELAND (AP) Five years ago, LeBron James left the floor after Game 5 against Boston in disgrace. There were boos from the home fans, even some whispers he'd quit on the Cavaliers.

On Sunday, in his first playoff game for Cleveland since 2010, James will take his first step toward an NBA championship - toward the one that could top them all.

James and the Cavaliers open the playoffs against the Celtics, a team he knows well and the one that abruptly ended his first stay in Cleveland. Shortly before his exit to Miami in the summer of '10, the Cavs were beaten in six games by the Celtics, and that series loss, perhaps as much as any other, scarred James.
