NBA Finals pick up where they left off

If there was ever a live 'dog, it's the 2017 Cavaliers. Last season, the Cavaliers ran away with the championship after the Warriors had a 3-1 series lead.

Steve Kerr has been sidelined from the sidelines for all but two games during the Golden State Warriors' 12-0 Playoff push to the NBA Finals due to severe illness caused by his recurring back issues.

Back in 2011 when National Basketball Association teams locked out their players, the two superstars went to battle on a different playing surface in "LeBron's Flag Football Classic", which was held in James' hometown of Akron, Ohio.

POINT GUARD: Stephen Curry vs Kyrie Irving. And both times, the Hall of Fame tandem of John Stockton and Karl Malone came up just short in defeating the Michael Jordan-led Bulls. Sunset Station sports book director Chuck Esposito said.

Injuries and upsets and sometimes just under performance tend to get in the way of that match up we would all love to see. "So it doesn't matter".

Thursday, June 1: Cleveland at Golden State, 9 p.m.

Durant took his former Oklahoma City Thunder team to the NBA Finals in 2012, where they fell in five games to a Miami Heat squad that featured current Cavaliers forward LeBron James.

"That really changed their team".

The dynamic duo could continue what they've been doing and play the first three quarters so well that they aren't needed by the end. He added that if the incident keeps the issue of race in the spotlight, then he's okay with it.

POWER FORWARD: Draymond Green vs Kevin Love. "That's the only pressure I worry about", said Durant.

"The loss of those three guys and selling their soul to get Durant will come back to bite them", said Fratto (Berniefratto.com). We are a better Cavaliers team and they are a better Warriors team but what does that mean? They added a shooter. But he still hit 324 3s for the second most in National Basketball Association history to his 402 a year ago and paced himself so he is peaking now. The game in Golden State was a dominant, decisive victory for the Warriors.

After long layoffs for both sides after the conference finals, the first few minutes of the opener of this Golden State-Cleveland series has been more about working through a bit of rust more than anything else. "He's not going to be able to do it", Fratto said.

"Throughout the postseason, there's so many different emotions going high, going low from players and things of that nature", James said.

"He's going to score". The question will become: Is he more likely to leave if the Warriors win or if they lose? The Cavs, on the other hand, are the best third quarter team in the playoffs with a +25.8 net rating. She was wearing her usual Golden State themed sweater. Fratto is playing the under, and so are we. Especially its leader, who nearly single-handedly forced Golden State to play six games to win it all two years ago against a team that was basically LeBron and a bunch of D-Leaguers. It's only happened once in each of the other major North American professional sports - and the last instance was more than half a century ago, when the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens battled for the Stanley Cup from 1954-1956.

"These are the two best teams and if you were on one of these two teams you were hopeful that you'd be here at the end", Korver said Wednesday, a day before the teams meet for the third straight Finals.

"But now that we are here, we have business to take care of".
