Golden State expects to face Cleveland

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is unsure if he will be able to coach in the NBA Finals, as he continues to work his way back from back surgery complications.

Golden State will host Game 1 of the NBA Finals on June 1 against either Cleveland or Boston.

Stephen Curry's 36 points and 29 from Kevin Durant helped the Oakland-based team complete a 4-0 clean sweep in their best-of-seven Western Conference finals.

Manu Ginobili might retire this summer - the 39-year-old says he hasn't made up his mind yet. "That was the whole reason for starting him".

Ginobili drew appreciation from the crowd with a solid showing in what may have been his final career game, but San Antonio needed Aldridge to play like the five-time All-Star he is.

"I tried to do my best to give him that moment; just take it all in, because you could tell how much he's meant to this organization, to this city. But one thing about it, he's definitely not a liability on the floor".


Throughout the second half of that first game and into the next three games, the Warriors outscored the Spurs by 87 points and each passing minute became more of a glimpse into the full potential of this team. Breaking news, severe weather, daily forecasts, entertainment news, all of the day's important events to keep you up to date wherever you are.

Kawhi Leonard was, without a doubt, missed by San Antonio in their second game at Oracle.

Popovich said that Ginobili is a future Hall of Famer who allowed him to start him on the bench for the last decade because it would make the team better. Throughout the regular season, we saw many glimpses and stretches of the arsenal, but in the playoffs, they have unleashed a full on attack on their opponents.

Reaching the Finals for a third straight season has been Golden State's destiny, and the consistency this team showed with its defensive focus and intensity was unparalleled. By that time, Golden State took any hope the Spurs had without Leonard.

The Orlando Magic have reached for a well-traveled front office veteran to fill the role of president of basketball operations, AP reports. The person, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced, said Monday night the two sides have agreed to a deal.
