Steve Kerr intends to 'coach for a long time' despite back

James was not living at the residence at the time of the vandalism, an LAPD spokeswoman told The Associated Press, as he's preparing for the Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA Finals series against the Golden State Warriors. His inside game is humming as well, evidenced by his.592 shooting percentage on 2-point field goals.

There are few weaknesses in these Warriors, the first team to head into the final round 12-0 and winning by an average of 16.3 points per game.

Golden State, led by two-times reigning league MVP Stephen Curry, are in remarkable form after becoming the first team in league history to enter the Finals undefeated (12-0) since the National Basketball Association went to the current playoff format in 2003.

LeBron James wanted to be with his family, to hug his wife and three kids back in Ohio. The length of this year's Finals - and the Cavs' chances - might hinge on whether the 6-foot-7 Warriors Swiss Army knife can zap Love's newfound confidence.

But Lue, once a journeyman point guard who steered the Cavs to an National Basketball Association championship last season, has grown more accepting of his frontman role.

Not that anyone expected any different.

You can, and many have, make the argument that the one-game suspension Draymond Green incurred with his team up 3-1 in last year's Finals opened the door for the Cleveland Cavaliers comeback.

It's quite possible he's done more in the pursuit and capture of an National Basketball Association championship than any Canadian in the history of the game.

The league-best 76ers gleefully exacted their revenge on a stacked Lakers team that had rolled past them a year earlier, sweeping the purple and gold en route to their third championship.

"It's fantastic. Especially since this is Year 14 for me, for this to happen now, this means so much", Korver said of his first trip to the Finals. But I can't let you get your work in and I don't put mine in. At the end of the day, I know the way I'm built. My only motivation is to be able to compete for a championship every single year. Those numbers are based on regular-season results. The Cavs won Games 5 and 7 there previous year.

"The most underrated part of our business when you're on air with partners having that kind of chemistry, and especially over a long period of time", Breen said. Clearly, Cleveland understands what it takes to frustrate the Warriors just enough.

Brown is set to go up against LeBron James and a Cleveland team he coached in two separate stints. James won his first title in 2012 with Miami in a five-game series over Durant and the Thunder. Of course unbelievably talented players like Curry and Thompson will score points throughout the game, but Durant is this year's secret weapon. But James' averages of 35.8 points, 13.3 rebounds and 8.8 assists in the Cavaliers' competitive, six-game loss to a Warriors team that won 67 regular-season games is sublime stuff.

The Warriors also have to prove they haven't just had flukes in the playoffs.

James will push Golden State to the limit.

After playoffs that have been largely defined by mundanity, the very least the Warriors and Cavs could do for us is give us seven decent games. He has hit just 38 percent of his shots as his normally reliable jumper has failed him. "At the end of the day, once I hang it up, people can look at what I was able to accomplish, win, lose or draw, and say, 'He made a difference.' So, that's what I'm here for". T-Mac. I feel like I've been studying those type guys my entire life.

Though James and Irving will get theirs against the Warriors' stellar defense, collectively their efforts will fall short to help Cleveland hoist another Larry O'Brien trophy. "So we'll see. It worked pretty well in Game 4 of last series".

Curry is now leading the Warriors to a 12-0 record in the playoffs, the longest winning streak in NBA Playoff history.
