Why weren't the streets of Boston devised in a grid system where streets run perpendicular? It fueled them, and it worked as San Antonio won the 2014 Finals in five games over Miami.
Aware that officials are especially wary of him, Green has made a point to limit his banter with referees. "I just have to keep going and figure out what I've gotta do to come back at the highest level possible". He comes across like this ultimate family man on social media, which some people think seems manufactured. "It's like, we're in the NBA Finals".
"Obviously, I mean, 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". There's nothing he can't do on the court. He dominated the Spurs all series; 31.5 points per game, shot 56 percent from the field, 46 percent from beyond the arc, grabbed six boards and dished out four assists in yet another sweep. LeBron is right behind him, though, and has a chance to pass him.
Bet Cleveland Cavaliers vs. LeBron "came up unclutch, again". I wore a leg sleeve on my leg and folded it down so you saw the red part. But the Warriors had the best record in the league for the third consecutive season and have yet to lose a game in the playoffs, outscoring their opponents by a whopping 16.3 points per game in the postseason. Between LeBron, Love, Irving, Kyle Korver, JR Smith and Channing Frye, the team is operating at a ridiculous clip from range. My teammates did a great job of keeping us in the game, building the lead.
But Kevin Love isn't buying it.
"I've told the team 'The good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies.' So, hopefully Mike will be back tomorrow, but I'll answer your basketball questions". Do you think it was fun playing with Kobe Bryant, where the story seemingly always had to be about him?
After Curry's turnover, his team scored just one basket-a layup by Thompson-for the remainder of the game. A career 43 percent three-point shooter, Curry was just at 37 percent for the month. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have allowed the sixth-highest points per game on cuts in these playoffs so that will be a major area of concern heading in to the playoffs. It's tough to hold that against them, because these Warriors could probably make any team look awful - except for one, that is.
That's when Riley reached into his own coaching past. Certainly. But it's one game. He is about to go to his seventh straight NBA Finals and has already proven that he is the best in the world.
The Cavs have also played well in the postseason, going 12-1 while outscoring their opposition by 13.6 points per game.
"Once we get to Game 1, that might be a good time to make a decision one way or the other", Kerr said, adding that "no matter what" he will be traveling with the team to Cleveland. He's playing out of his mind.
They gave up their first-round pick this year as part of the DeMarcus Cousins trade, so they're not on the clock until the 40th selection, or 10th pick in the second round. So when Kyrie puts up 41 points, don't say LeBron got bailed out when he scored 34 points on 15-27 shooting, with 15 of those points coming in the 4 quarter. "It's kind of in our minds that that's who we were going to see". Here is a closer look at how the Cavaliers and Warriors match up heading in to the 2017 NBA Finals. Our parents witnessed Michael Jordan. While LeBron has been incredible, he has gotten plenty of help. He's putting on a show.
