Finals pick up where they left off with Cavs-Warriors III

Finals pick up where they left off with Cavs-Warriors III

At the start of the year, National Basketball Association 2K17's simulation had the Cavs beating the Warriors in seven games. Cleveland is 12-1 in the playoffs, winning by an average of 13.6 points. They will not have to suffer this year, since Kevin Durant will make the difference.

The surprise is that I'm picking Golden State to win in four straight games. Iguodala has shot the ball poorly in the postseason but the 2015 NBA Finals MVP will be on the floor plenty anyway because of his other contributions. I see nothing preventing them from going to eight to 10 straight Finals.

There is a way to beat Golden State.

The Cavaliers are defending champions after James sparked the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history, rallying Cleveland from 3-1 down to win last year's best-of-seven series in a dramatic winner-take-all showdown at Oakland, California.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will step into the Oracle Arena on June 1 to meet the Golden State Warriors for the first game of the 2017 NBA Finals. Then Steph might set a pin-down and Klay can curl to the rim, or Klay might set a back screen or a flair screen and Steph can come off of that."They have a good thing going" is maybe the understatement of the year. "I mean previous year, right from Game 1 against Houston he was injured and fighting an uphill battle".

As far as totals go, it has gone under in six of these teams' last 10 games, according to the OddsShark NBA Database. We're going to have to be big for us to win this series.

Durant is averaging 25.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 blocked shots a game in the Warriors' flawless playoff start. After the game, Lue said "our game plan was kind of backwards" with the focus on the three allowing Durant to get open.

Thrilled to get off to a start like this: Root
The previous highest partnership was of 85 runs between Shahriar Nafees and Aftab Ahmed. The century also came when he tapped Ali for a single to complete it off 124 balls.

"I'm just at peace with myself; I'm at peace with myself as a basketball player, most importantly", Durant told USA Today Sports. Cleveland nearly certainly needs the Kevin Love of the last round to have a chance at the upset. Love broke out in a big way in the Eastern Conference finals after opening the playoffs with two quiet rounds, averaging 22.6 points and 12.4 rebounds against Boston. "Through a confluence of events, they were able to add Durant, and it's great for the Warriors, great to have a great team".

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Watching Part II of the Cavaliers-Warriors NBA Finals trilogy last spring, Kyle Korver came to a realization. True, Cleveland won just 51 games in the regular season.

FIRST TITLE? Will Kevin Durant (L) win his first National Basketball Association title against his old nemesis LeBron James?

"What happened in the past in my mind doesn't really count now unless we go out and finish the deal", he said.

Asked by the Bay Area News Group's Tim Kawakami whether he'll coach again at some point, Kerr was emphatic: "Hell yeah".

Of course, Curry wasn't 100 percent healthy in that series, having returned from a knee injury that he suffered in the first round of the playoffs. He's in better health now, even while wearing a sleeve over his elbow to protect some swelling.
