And as history will tell you, the plan worked. Bowman recalled with a grin.

Lue was asked if it’s more hard to identify who that is on Golden State.

The Warriors have home court advantage and are heavy favourites – James called them a “juggernaut” – when the best-of-seven finals begin Thursday at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. It’s really that simple.

Brown is set to go up against LeBron James and a Cleveland team he coached in two separate stints.

Here’s some background information about the NBA Finals.

Defense has been the question for the Cavaliers all season. “So having that team like Golden State over there who is always pushing us, I know from on this side, it’s great for us and it’s great for the game”.

For the record, I picked Cleveland at the start of the season primarily for two reasons. “He’s one of the most competitive players in the league, and he kind of spoke this into existence”. In the meantime, disparaging meme-makers on Twitter are already preparing to skewer Durant – and Steph Curry for that matter – should the Warriors fall short.

James has probably never been better than he is now.

Let’s get back to those numbers. If they win Game 6, he wins MVP. That Game 1 trend is 3-9-1 O/U since the 2004 finals. They’re going to want to do what’s best for me, I’m going to want to do what’s best for them. He wants to make a firm decision, either way, before Game 1 tips off. The Golden State Warriors meet the Cleveland Cavaliers for round 3 and it’s going to be good. James didn’t speak to reporters on Saturday either, leaving Love to serve as the team’s unofficial spokesman as the sports world inched closer to a matchup that seemed destined from the moment last season’s Finals ended. Instead of falling into the idiotic James vs. Jordan debate, we should just sit back and appreciate James’ greatness and hope with everything we have for a great Finals between the Cavaliers and Warriors.

Except those Warriors aren’t these Warriors.

He is averaging 32.5 points per game in these playoffs, eclipsed only by the 35.3 per-game average as a spry 24-year-old in 2009.

Durant is the difference.

When the chief factor for winning is talent, Bleacher Report said it’s clear that the Warriors have the edge as bettors only need to be reminded that when a lineup is composed of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green with deep bench support then the odds are high for Golden State. We’ve both added pieces that have helped our offensive packages and defensive packages be even more scary and obviously you can see that. Now, he’s averaging 25.2 points in the playoffs to Curry’s 28.6. “You’ve just got to challenge him on both ends of the floor”.

Kerr became head coach of the Golden State Warriors in 2014 and has dealt with back issues since 2015.

But Cleveland came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win their first-ever National Basketball Association championship. This group almost beat the full-strength Cavs a year ago, and adding Kevin Durant tipped the scales in their favor. And if Thompson and Iguodala are successful at making winning plays for them throughout it, the second title in three years they seek should be theirs.
