Cavs' Kevin Love: 'I Don't Feel Like We're Underdogs'

And not to mention this is the seventh straight trip to the Finals for LeBron and James Jones.

While Golden State certainly is loaded, James noted just how tough of a challenge the San Antonio Spurs were in back-to-back NBA Finals matchups when he was with the Miami Heat.

James says he feels "very good" about his squad's chances against the Golden State Warriors.

"I've played against four Hall of Famers as well, too, with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team", said James, occasionally sniffling as he continues to fight a cold. You can't please everybody, and I'm happy for my teammates though.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens, who earned his first two play-off series wins this year, said: "I leave with a little bit of a bad taste in my mouth not playing as well here, and man you want to play well here".

"They cause a lot of stress". In 2015, the Cavs and Dubs combined for a 2-3-1 O/U record in the NBA Finals (194.16 ppg vs. 196.7 ave total), and previous year they finished 2-4-1 O/U in the finals (200.28 ppg vs. 207.93 ave total).

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are set to do battle in the Finals for a third consecutive season. But Cleveland came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win its first-ever National Basketball Association championship.

Let's be real, the Cavs will make it to the NBA Finals to face the Golden State Warriors.

James' series win in five games against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals is the sixth time he has played Boston. "I think maybe people just fail to realize that you just have two great teams and don't appreciate that". "We just kept grinding".

While Lue was referring to Boston's offensive schemes, it was still an odd position to take.

But the Warriors have some serious strength, with the reigning back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry leading All Stars Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Countered Golden State acting coach Mike Brown, when asked about it Thursday: "That's his opinion". I can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team. Game 1 is Thursday at 9 Oakland.

Here is the NBA Finals schedule.

The NBA Playoffs are down to just the final two teams, so I figured I would deviate one more time from the Sacramento Kings content and write a bit about the NBA Playoffs.

So how do you watch the Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers 2017 NBA Finals? He played three halves against the Cavaliers before limping off the court in the middle of Game 2. "The way he's playing, he's deserving of all the credit he's getting", Irving said before listing some of the Celtics who shone in Thomas' absence. In a series full of megastars like Howe, Terry Sawchuk, Ted Lindsay and Red Kelly in Detroit and Richard, Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey and Boom Boom Geoffrion in Montreal, it was an unsung player who became the hero. LeBron James has scored more points in the playoffs against the Celtics than any other player has scored against any team in the postseason ever.
