Cleveland Cavaliers' Blueprint to Upsetting Warriors in 2018 NBA Finals

James, of course, is preparing to meet the Warriors in the Finals for the fourth straight year and will not be giving his free agency much thought until that series is over. Me not hitting the free throw, I feel like cost our team the win. That will be the focus of our series keys - of course, with the focus still being on Golden State. I'm glad. I wanted to see them another time.

Before the Cavaliers dealt Irving to the Boston Celtics ahead of the 2017-18 season, it was widely reported that the star point guard had requested Cavaliers management to trade him to another team.

Cavaliers: James has 109 career 30-point games in the playoffs, tying Michael Jordan for most ever.

James Harden had 32 points as the top-seeded Rockets' bid to return to the finals for the first time since 1995 fell short without Chris Paul, who was nursing a hamstring injury.

"I'm happy for him".

And if you're not yet a subscriber to BT Sport - the home of live televised National Basketball Association in the United Kingdom all season long - find out how we can get you set up in just 15 minutes right here. Refs do seem to give more leniency to teams regarding this violation when it comes to the end of games, especially a title-winning one.

"I'm going to play aggressively, confidently with that right energy and motivation to help my team win", Curry said.


Everyone is still trying to figure out what went on in the final minute of regulation in Game One. Would KD have left OKC if Golden State won the chip in 2016?

Las Vegas oddsmakers established the Warriors as huge favorites to survive the best-of-seven NBA Finals, which begin Thursday (Friday Manila time) at Golden States Oracle Arena in Oakland.

James said that he and Iguodala were almost teammates but he was picked by Philadelphia 9th in the 2004 NBA Draft one spot before Cleveland would have taken him. It may not happen every time down the court, but you know they'll be in each other's face more than once this series.

So maybe the Cavs aren't such great underdogs after all - at least in the mind of James, who suggests maybe there is another level he can reach. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated ahead of Game 2.

Kerr's bigger concern is figuring out a way to make things tougher on James after he scored 51 points on 19-for-32 shooting in the opener, when he was able to repeatedly drive to the basket.

Alright, this one might be a bit more hard.
