The 2016 champion Cavs will battle the 2015 champion Warriors for the third straight year. The Warriors have outscored their opponents, including the postseason, by an unthinkable 1,150 points, 712 more than the point differential for the Cavs.
The Warriors are 12-0 in these playoffs, becoming the first National Basketball Association team to accomplish the feat after dispatching the Trail Blazers, Jazz and Spurs.
They dared to do it is because when your season is characterized as championship or bust all you care about is how you play and feel in May and June. “Drawing two defenders and no matter if you win or lose, if you make the right play, it’s OK”.
“I’ll take Lebron James, absolutely”, Laimbeer said to host Etan Thomas…
“Golden State has been the best team in our league for the past three years, and then they added an MVP”. He’s about to play in his seventh straight NBA Finals.
Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James continues to amaze with his performances during the NBA Playoffs, and even his teammates are in awe of the accomplishments on the court.
Still, the main ingredient to Golden State’s three-year dominant reign isn’t just superior talent but superior health. “I just have to keep going and figure out what I’ve got do to come back at the highest level possible”.
Perhaps Lebron’s hairline is more like the sands of time, giving us a scope of the timeline within the chase to catch the GOAT – stranger things have happened.
Last night LeBron also surpassed Michael Jordan as the NBA’s all-time playoff scoring leader.
Meanwhile for the next year, as the Warriors grew stronger and more talented – creating history again by becoming the first team to ever go 12-0 on their way to The Finals – they stewed about that big-stage, highly-ridiculed embarrassment from the prior year.
James is nearing the end of his 14th season in the National Basketball Association, has won the MVP Award four times, is sitting on three National Basketball Association titles and has never won a scoring title. “Me personally, I didn’t have it…that’s what I have to say about my performance”.LeBron James was whistled for his fourth foul with almost seven minutes left in the first half Tuesday, sending him to the bench early in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.Kevin Love added 17 points and 17 rebounds for the Cavs, now 11-1 in the postseason. Overall, they’ve won 27 of their last 28 games. I think the biggest thing for me sitting here today after breaking the all-time scoring record in playoff history is that I did it just being me.
“I thought when we got in the film session (Wednesday), we were still stinging a little bit from the night before”, said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens before Game 5. In fact, he’s on the top step, passing Michael Jordan who had reigned supreme since the 1997-98 season. King James or Air Jordan?
Smart, a 29 percent three-point shooter, was unconscious in Game 3 after knocking down 7-of-10 shots from three-point range.
