Steve Kerr happy Cavs’ Kevin Love is cleared to play

NBA Finals Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson

The series also comes with it the possibility of this being James' final one with the Cavaliers as the Lakers, 76ers and Rockets are circling as potential free-agent suitors.

Andre Iguodala is one of the Warriors' best defenders against Cavaliers superstar LeBron James. They need dudes who can keep up with the Warriors on the perimeter. So as Round 4 of the record-setting rivalry begins Thursday night, has Warriors-Cavaliers become too much of a good thing?

Unfortunately, Love has a history of missing time in the Finals. His reward? Yet another showdown with Golden State. "I can't think of a bigger gap from a team perspective". It's not our fault.

"Considering this year we've been pretty bad in the third quarters, we've got to really be aware of what they do in that third quarter", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue told reporters on May 30 during media day in Oakland.

"I'm thrilled to be here, I'm thrilled about the excitement of Filipinos here that are huge basketball fans".

"I don't compare them".

In last season's playoffs, the Cavs averaged 116.2 points and just once were held to fewer than 100 (91 in Game 1 of The Finals). For that matter, the 2018 NBA Finals marks the first time in any major sport that the same two teams are facing each other for the championship title four times in a row.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, a former championship teammate of Jordan, says James has gotten better with age, like the fine wines "King" James enjoys.

"We look at Game 7, how they played Boston, the way Jeff Green played, the way George Hill kind of managed the game when he had the ball in his hands, his defensive presence as well". The players won't apologize for showing up again, or worry that it hurts the National Basketball Association.

"The play that jumps out for me is Nick Young's 3", Kerr answered.

JAMES' SHOT: James isn't ready to make any bold predictions about how great he might be in his eighth straight Finals. "I haven't seen anyone else do that in our league, with the exception of two people and that's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Russell". Magic Johnson had 584.

The total pool was $20 million this season, paid out to all 16 postseason teams based on how they finished in the regular season and how deep they went in the playoffs. Durant was last year's NBA Finals MVP, is the No. 3 scorer by average among players who have played at least 10 finals games (32.9 points), and still might be the second-best forward in this series.
