Another Warriors-Cavaliers Finals clash not bad for National Basketball Association

Another Warriors-Cavaliers Finals clash not bad for National Basketball Association

"You can't stop LeBron", said Mike Brown, the Golden State assistant coach guiding the team while head coach Steve Kerr recovers from complications after back surgery.

"It's a little different, definitely". It's a 14.5-point jump from the Game 1 total in last year's Finals. We have a bigger goal in mind. So you've got to make him work as hard as he can.

Just enjoy this. This is what we've waited 346 days for. Cleveland has Kevin Love, who is playing his best basketball since coming to the Cavaliers soon after James' homecoming.

"Hostile situation, a lot of pressure, having to win and to step in and go undefeated in the playoffs is great", Lue said of the challenge that has faced Brown. "Once Wednesday comes we get a chance to fine tune everything and go from there".

The 47-year-old Brown had a 305-87 record with the Cavs, leading them to the franchise's first appearance in the NBA Finals in 2007, Now, he will do everything in his power to thwart their attempt to repeat as NBA champions after a record-setting comeback from 3-1 series deficit to a 4-3 victory in the 2016 Finals. Everything just kind of keeps getting back to where it once was. It's not something we talk about.




"It's just been such a better progression for Steph this post-season", Kerr, the ailing Golden State coach, told reporters Monday. We already know about James' greatness, but Tristan Thompson, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love have also been quite impressive as of late, especially in the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston. With A-list stars on both sides, and with legacies on the line in a variety of ways, these Finals have the potential to be a spectacle the likes of which we have never seen. Green wanted the matchup with the Cavaliers after Golden State fell short a year ago despite his brilliant Game 7, and now here it comes. With the Cavs down 3-1 and on the verge of elimination, LeBron James, 32, and Kyrie Irving, 25, teamed up to rack up 41 points each, according to USA Today.

"Happy to be sharing this moment with him after all he's gone through with joining the squad and leaving OKC", Green said. If you listened to the experts this week, who were chatting up about the National Hockey League and NBA finals on SportSXRadio (airs on AM 720 KDWN 7-9 pm PST) you already know the reasons. To win it would be even better.

"The Lakers with Magic Johnson went to the Finals during "Showtime" nine times in 12 years", Riley told TMZ.com. He made the decision he made for his own life and what he wanted to do, but also to win a championship. Golden State's offense is in better shape with a healthy Curry and Durant taking Harrison Barnes' spot. No one remembers second place.

Also special are the forces arrayed in this series, one that the National Basketball Association hopes will make up for what has been an otherwise disappointing postseason - thanks, in large part, to the way the Warriors and Cavaliers have dismantled their opponents to get here.

"You have that third player, definitely one of the top three players in this league, that can go get his own shot at anytime and that's what makes them more unsafe".
