Why a 'boring' Cavs-Warriors rematch isn't a disaster for the National Basketball Association


The Cavaliers turned it around the following season and won their first championship in 2016 beating the Warriors. "When you walk off the court with a win and get this fancy hat, it's a good feeling", Curry said.

But Golden State had to deal with an injury of their own as Andre Iguodala missed the last four games with a knee injury.

Houston carried a 24-17 advantage into the second quarter after getting 14 points from NBA MVP frontrunner James Harden in the opening 12 minutes.

When he spoke of how the Cavaliers need LeBron James to be great and must shoot "lights out" from the three-point line, he meant that was what they would require "to have a chance to win a game". Those are two solid options.

Love collided with Boston Celtics' rookie Jayson Tatum during Game 6, and was not cleared to suit up for the pivotal Game 7 over the weekend. They make another run, and he makes another play.

Golden State struggled to hit shots for stretches.

The widely held belief that Golden State has a far better team than Cleveland had reporters wondering how Van Gundy could "sell this thing coming out of the gates and get people excited about this".

The Warriors had a little help from the Rockets who couldn't buy a 3-point basket.

Stephen Curry would have scored 40-plus points a night against a Thomas, J.R. Smith, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, and Jose Calderon. A midseason roster shakeup made their lineup younger. They're not the Rockets - not by a longshot - but as Houston proved in the Western Conference Finals, there's a benefit to switching everything and being super physical on defense when going up against the Warriors.

Predictable, perhaps, but James is the best player in this series and the only reason the Cavaliers are in it. The Warriors have to take that seriously. He now worries that his body simply cannot go any further against the strongest team in the National Basketball Association, the Golden State Warriors. "We played a team that was as driven as any team we've ever played to win". No other Cavs are scoring in double digits.

Van Gundy, pride of Alhambra High School in Martinez, and Jackson, who preceded Steve Kerr as coach of the Warriors, are leaning toward a Warriors victory in four games - only because three games is mathematically impossible. For Warriors owner Joe Lacob however, he's growing exhausted of yet another series with the Cavs.
