Win or lose in the NBA Finals, Kevin Durant will, too. He may not be out there long if the Warriors decide they need more mobility against Thompson, who is almost averaging a double-double and shooting 60 percent while creating plenty of extra possessions with his offensive rebounding for the Cavaliers. The Golden State Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBAFinals on Thursday in. They destroyed the Cavs in their last meeting in January. Let the Warriors score 103 points, they're nearly certainly going to win. Unfortunately, even him required some time off recently after suffering food poisoning, ESPN reported. However, I'm not sure what the Cavs can do differently to close the gap, as game one was downright ugly.
With Durant missing two postseason games, Curry has been Golden State's most valuable player. The Cavs became the first team to come back from a 3-1 series deficit in the finals, and James reminded everyone that he was the greatest athlete in all sports today.
Last year, Golden State set an National Basketball Association record by winning 73 regular-season games.
The Warriors are 12-0 in the playoffs and have won 27 of their last 28 overall.
Having swept through the first three rounds of competition to the tune of a 12-0 record, and heading into the first two games at home, Kerr maintained that his involvement would be rather similar as if he were in the sidelines.
The teams are pretty even in terms of averages and that's why I believe the series will go the complete seven games.
Cavs the champs but Warriors the favorites in the NBA Finals
Along the way, James gelled well with co-All Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love , adding another dynamic to the Cavaliers offense. The latter's performance could play an important hand in determining the National Basketball Association 2017 champion.
Sony Stops Manufacturing PS3 in Japan
What is Sony changing after the PS3? The Pro is an immensely powerful system that can handle 1080p gaming. It has been manufactured for about 10 years which is more than enough for Sony to be proud about.
And remember.as I always say, the Cavs have LeBron.
First, it's a best four-out-of-seven game series.
But wait a minute, Cleveland isn't supposed to have a chance, right?
At least there isn't beef between Draymond Green and Cleveland, as professed by the Golden State star during an interview Wednesday with ABC's Good Morning America.
Draymond Green (nine points, 11 rebounds) who had run into early foul trouble, clearly grabbed James' jersey while making an offensive move and scored - his first basket of the game. Last season they played with a seven-player lineup in numerous Finals games.
This will be the third straight year Golden State and Cleveland have met in the NBA Finals.The 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs have been kind of a dud up until this point, but that's in large part to the dominance of these two teams. In the five-game Boston series, Love shot 53.5 percent from three-point range and averaged almost 13 rebounds a game. LeBron James is arguably the best player of all time and certainly among the top three.
Strap in, folks, we've got ourselves a rubber match. Ultimately, I think that wins out. "It's been working up to this point, so I can't change what I'm doing". "There's no difference", James added, referring to Walton's 39-4 record as fill-in coach when Kerr had to step away for health reasons during the 2015-16 season.
