Tyronn Lue, Kevin Love Respond to 'Competitor' Draymond Green's Trash Talk

Tyronn Lue, Kevin Love Respond to 'Competitor' Draymond Green's Trash Talk

After both teams dominated their respective competition so far in the playoffs, Las Vegas believes the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will be competitive.

No return yet for Kerr • Steve Kerr is not ready to return to the bench as Golden State Warriors coach due to lingering health issues, general manager Bob Myers said Thursday. You can't wait until he gets in the paint and then try to build a wall. "To not be able to go back out there in that second half and continue that series was painful".

It's why many are rooting for the Cavs to win the Finals this year. Howe set a record with 12 points in the round and Lindsay scored four goals in a Game 2 win. They are at the absolute peak of their powers and are now headed for the NBA's ultimate rubber match.

But Thursday nights blowout, game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, was everything I wanted to see from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Palestinian security prisoners' hunger-strike ended
The prisoners have only been drinking a mixture of salt and water since 17 April, the Middle East Monitor reports. The end of the strike came in time for the holy month of Ramadan, which began Saturday night.

James entered the game 27 points behind Jordan. The Warriors are 7-point favorites at Westgate. Last year, the Cavs were also +180 underdogs when they dug out of a 3-1 hole to upset the Warriors in seven games. Lue knows how to squeeze the best out of his players when he needs them most, which is why the heavily favored Warriors can't afford to take anything for granted in the title decider.

"I'm going to be honest", he told reporters in Boston after putting up 35/8/8 against the Celtics. "Like, they hit the post, Golden State runs splits and all that stuff but these guys are running all kinds of (stuff)". It's too stressful, and I'm not stressed right now.

The three-time champion said playing Golden State is "going to be very challenging not only on me mentally, but on our ballclub and on our franchise". "So however you want to take that, that's how the season's been". I don't feel like we're underdogs.

None of this is a surprise.

However, there were worker and firm adjustment costs as the three countries adjusted to more open trade and investment. "President ( Donald) Trump is going to change that".

Cavs forward LeBron James led the team with 35 points, surpassing Michael Jordan as the NBA's all-time leading scorer in the playoffs. Reserve Warriors center JaVale McGee was all but out of the National Basketball Association, and now he's playing impactful minutes in these playoffs. In reality the vote was unanimous as the GMs couldn't vote for their own teams. Cue a playoff career-high 42 points on 15-for-22 shooting from Irving, coupled with a 17-rebound, 17-point display from Love, and the end result was an 112-99 win for Cleveland.

It's a series with full-length novels for storylines. James' eight foes in the NBA Finals have a combined.764 winning percentage to Jordan's.746. Another Finals matchup offers yet another round in a battle for the NBA's supreme individual identity - and winning means everything.

Are James' privates safe from Green's wondering feet and hands? With Durant melding nicely alongside fellow All-Stars Curry, Thompson and Green, the Warriors are undefeated entering the Finals, the first team to start 12-0 in the rich history of the National Basketball Association playoffs. In all, Thomas missed the final three games of the series and the Celtics went 1-2 in his absence. They're going to challenge us a lot, offensively, defensively, mentally, physically.

The Warriors defense ranked third in the league giving up 102.0 points per game in the playoffs and the Cavs, giving up 103.2 points per game, were sixth. Well, what happens if the Warriors win a second title in three years? But the Cavs, whose sloppy regular-season defence (22nd overall) was widely cited as proof they were primed for an upset has been tightened up considerably.
