Cavaliers Win: The Sneakers of the 2017 NBA Eastern Conference Champions

Cavaliers Win: The Sneakers of the 2017 NBA Eastern Conference Champions

In Game 5 on Thursday night at TD Garden in Boston, James dropped 35 points and Irving scored 24 in the 135-102 win. "I'm not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State".

Here's what struck me first: That seems way too low for the rematch, doesn't it?

The NBA limits salaries for individual players, meaning an already-stacked Warriors team could only offer as much money for Kevin Durant as any other team that doesn't have a shot at winning a title. That's all I can give you right now, because I'm happy, and I don't want to be stressed. A lot of good players, they don't learn that early.

Not especially for Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving, who finally had health on his side for an entire regular season before helping lead the team to a 12-1 record over the first three rounds of the 2017 NBA Playoffs, which secured the franchise's third straight trip to The Finals.

Adds Durant quote in final paragraph.

When asked about the suggestion that the Celtics were better without him after they rallied to win Game 3 against the Cavaliers while Thomas was sidelined by a hip injury, he dismissed the notion. Golden State will practice again Saturday then take Sunday as its last off day ahead of Thursday's Game 1 at Oracle Arena.

Golden State Warriors favoured over LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers
And while he may never surpass MJ to become the GOAT, it's still pretty cool to watch him leap over the obstacles in his path. James scored 35 points and added eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals, and Kyrie Irving posted 24 points.

"I don't even think about [the Warriors]", Lue told the team's beat writers after the win. "I wasn't sure when, but I knew that I had to make the conscious choice to really lead our guys, understanding the situation that we were in".

"The conversations about who's the greatest of all time, things of that nature - it doesn't matter to me".

After finishing the regular season ranked No. 22 in defensive rating (108 points allowed per 100 possessions), they trail only the Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks during the postseason (104.6).

"That's his answer", Warriors Interim Head Coach Mike Brown said.

"I've gotta do what's best for me in the long run, what's best for my body", Thomas said.

"I've gotta do what's best for me in the long run, what's best for my body". Will Golden State be tempted to play a little bigger against Cleveland due to their impact?

For the first time in five years no Australian Boomers players will be in the National Basketball Association finals although Australian-born U.S. star Kyrie Irving plays for the Cavaliers.

Golden State will host Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Wed, June 1.

The Warriors have home-court advantage for this series so will host the pivotal game-five and game-seven meetings in Oakland but the last two championships have been won on opposition home courts. Meanwhile, the Cavaliers added players veterans Kyle Korver and Deron Williams.

But what all National Basketball Association fans will hope to see is a long, healthy series where neither side loses a key player, unlike their previous two series where the Cavaliers lost Irving and Kevin Love in 2015 and the Warriors had Bogut injured and Draymond Green suspended for the pivotal game five past year. The Warriors have obviously played very well without Kerr when he's been absent, but they also haven't faced any real adversity in those moments. Combining Kevin Durant joining the roster this season with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, and throwing in fellow all-star Draymond Green, the Cavs are going to have their hands full trying to shut down this quartet.

"The best team in our league the last three years", James said of the Warriors.
