Finals pick up where they left off with Cavs-Warriors III

Why in sports do we get so mad when great players want to play with one another, but when great musicians want to play with one another, we get excited and happy?

"Just get focused on Game 2", James said.

LeBron left for Miami after losing the Conference semifinals 4-2 to the Boston Celtics, and that was after attending two Conference Finals and one NBA Finals in four years; Durant's Oklahoma, on the other hand, had played four Conference Finals and one NBA Finals in six years, only for him to leave after narrowly losing a Conference Final.

The Warriors are off to the best start in National Basketball Association play-off history at 12-0, but they had won a record 73 regular-season games last season and felt empty when they could not win the title.

Cavs owner Dan Gilbert had a change of heart and re-hired Brown in April 2013, only to have another change of heart in May 2014 and fire Brown again, this time after only one season with $20 million owed to Brown over the next four years. In 2010, he made about the same decision Durant made in 2016, when he became part of a super team, to speed up the actualization of his Championship dream.

LeBron James had 28 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists for Cleveland.

And in Game 1, the Warriors demolished them so thoroughly in a 113-91 win on Thursday that you wonder how the Cavaliers - or anyone else - could ever beat them.

The Warriors are 12-0 in these playoffs, becoming the first National Basketball Association team to accomplish the feat, and the Cavaliers are 12-1.

Justin Rowan: (@Cavsanada): Something something something, the Warriors are better team.

It has made a big difference for Curry, who missed six playoff games in 2016 because of ankle and knee injuries and was never 100 percent after that.

Few people believed that Cleveland would overcome a 3-1 deficit to the Warriors en route to the 2016 National Basketball Association title. Many of us like to think that we would stay with the Thunder, but many of us would probably also want to play on the Warriors.

The Warriors figure they will be motivated for the opener after watching the Cavaliers celebrate their first crown on the Warriors' court after a seventh-game thriller.


I am excited to watch the NBA Finals.

This year has seen the triple-double take prominence with Russell Westbrook and James Harden leading the MVP discussion but Curry has silently been posting up his best Playoff numbers to date.

It's insane to think that we are on the cusp of such a happening. Curry and Draymond Green each connected on one in a 13-1 run that created a 93-69 lead in the final seconds of the period.

"I'm just trying to be the best me I can be". Once during the first quarter, Durant toppled James as he blew by him, then drove in for a dunk.

The Warriors are the first team to win their first 12 games of the postseason, sweeping all three rounds so far.

These aren't flawless, but they're definitely an improvement over the last few pairs of Curry's to be released so far.

So what do we have to look forward to?

Reserve forward Matt Hill was on both teams. The Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday. We know we're capable of playing a lot better.

Durant is averaging 25.2 points per game in the playoffs, second only to Stephen Curry. "That's what you dream about as a kid, is to play at the highest level". Cleveland's offense is much improved compared to last year's edition.

"They're going to challenge us offensively, defensively, mentally, physically". When the Warriors are playing their best, you can do the same and still lose.

Thompson and Durant show just how awesome Rick Barnes was at recruiting.
