Cavaliers-Warriors set for ultimate Finals rubber match

Cleveland's Irving ready for Golden State's Curry

Cleveland's Irving ready for Golden State's Curry

You know, think back, you guys know the history.

"Every year his game has gotten better". The first two play types are among the most frequently run by the Cavaliers during this playoff run, showing that Thompson could still be a major part of the Warriors' title chase even if he remains cold for another game or two. He sat out Game 5, allowing the Cavs to rally.

"Just challenge him, just like you do with any other really good player", Durant said. So they don't just play with talent. Besides five years in age, Durant downplayed the differences between him from then and now.

This season, at age 32, James averaged 26.4 points plus career highs of 8.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists as well as a league-high 37.8 minutes on the court a game. I'm not gonna go through a long buildup and tell you my pick at the end of some back and forth analysis.

Trump takes sides in Arab rift, suggests support for isolation of Qatar
As the forward headquarters of US Central Command, it is seen as crucial in the US-led campaign against the Islamic State group. FIFA, soccer's world governing body, has said it remains in regular contact with Qatar, which will host the 2022 World Cup.

A year removed from his no-show, Stephen Curry is healthy and will have a chance to prove he can get it done on the grandest of stages.

Teams that prevail in Game 1 of the Finals have won the series 49 out of 70 times. "People have that feeling of repeat", said Klang.

In the 2015 Finals, the Cavaliers had star point guard Kyrie Irving for just one game due to injury and Kevin Love not at all.

According to the odds makers in Las Vegas and the number crunchers at analytical sites, the Warriors are the clear favorites to win the series after sweeping their way through the playoffs with a record-setting margin of victory of 16.3 points per game. Golden State Warriors' JaVale McGee dribbles during an NBA basketball practice, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. "And hopefully we keep it going, but we fully respect and are aware that this team that we're playing, they're the champions and we're not", Kerr said. Kerr has also missed 10 of Golden State's 12 games this postseason. and the team has gone 12-0. Curry and KD will make sure of that (and then they will both return to Golden State over the summer, as Charlotte fans pining for the return of the golden child get disappointed once again).

What to know about the Paris Agreement, possible U.S. withdrawal
Trump also tweeted Wednesday morning that he will have a formal announcement on the decision "over the next few days". Elon Musk's strained relationship with United States president Donald Trump may be nearing the breaking point.

"Obviously, you want the shot to go in more frequently, but that's basketball", he said earlier this month. "So I feel great".

Still, Thompson would like nothing more than to see some shots fall.

Durant played well in his first Finals trip but didn't have the help he has now with a two-time MVP in Curry, one of the league's best two-way players in Thompson and a do-it-all demon like Green. In a matchup of teams undefeated (13-0) on the road in the playoffs, Taco Bell is offering "Steal a Game, Steal a Taco" - one free taco to everyone interested should either team win a road game in the Finals. Love broke out in a big way in the Eastern Conference finals after opening the playoffs with two quiet rounds, averaging 22.6 points and 12.4 rebounds against Boston.

LeBron James, meanwhile, essentially cares less about the regular season, but he's in an unprecedented seventh straight NBA Finals overall and eighth career.
