Why The Cleveland Cavaliers Will Win The NBA Finals

Why The Cleveland Cavaliers Will Win The NBA Finals

Its only loss was Game 3 of the East Finals vs. Boston when James was fighting an illness and held to a shocking 11 points. "I don't know who they are", he said.

Stintsman is a five-year season ticket holder who is selling his tickets for games 3 and 4.

That prompted Curry to go one-on-one against James, and the two-time reigning MVP wasn't almost as effective as he was during the regular season, where he averaged a league-high game score of 24.6. Cleveland would keep Golden State from scoring and ultimately, the Cavs would claim Cleveland's first major sports championship in over 50 years. 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. And considering his status as a perennial MVP candidate, the possibilities of a 35-percent performance is less likely to say the least.But the Warriors are not the best team money could buy.Not this time, though.It is not good that the National Basketball Association will head into next season with everyone expecting round four of these Finals.

After struggling on defense for the entire regular season, Cleveland has improved remarkably during the playoffs.

What seems to be a near guarantee is that Game 1 will feature a ton of points. He was hurt in the team's first playoff game against the Houston Rockets and missed the next two games.

The NBA commissioner appeared on "Mike & Mike" Wednesday morning and was asked about the "competitive balance" in the NBA with Kevin Durant joining the Warriors. "I mean, he could have only impacted one team, had he stayed in Oklahoma City or gone somewhere else, there's no doubt that team would have been better, but it wouldn't have changed the fortunes for 27 other teams in the league".

This will be the third straight year Golden State and Cleveland have met in the NBA Finals.The 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs have been kind of a dud up until this point, but that's in large part to the dominance of these two teams.

James became the first player to lead an NBA Finals in every major statistical category with 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.3 blocked shots a game a year ago. The benefit of having Durant, rather than Green, run the pick-and-roll with Curry is the potential to get Durant matched up with a smaller guard, like San Antonio's Kyle Anderson.

With multiple investigations underway, she asked, "How did they know what messages to deliver?" Mr Trump was not buying it. She added: "I also think I was the victim of the very broad assumption that I was going to win".

One of the reasons the Warriors have been so dominant in recent years is due to their depth.

When Durant first headed to Golden State, some believed it would cause disruption because there would be too many mouths to feed. Cleveland snatched the title from the grasp of the Warriors 93-89 past year in Oakland in an epic game seven.

Durant is looking to win his first NBA Finals.

Can Cleveland win a game or two in this series?

Golden State has gotten off to a few slow starts in series openers.

Durant's presence also benefited Curry, who hit six 3-pointers on the way to a 28-point night. Golden State shot 44 percent against the Cavs in the 2015 Finals, 43 percent last season. Pachulia is back and ready to go after missing two games in the Western Conference finals with a heel injury.

The Cavs' defense has also improved this postseason. We've both added pieces that have helped our offensive packages and defensive packages be even more scary and obviously you can see that.
