Kerr 'not ready' to return to Warriors sideline

LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's playoff scoring record

Bovada lists the Cavs at +225 to win the series, which doesn't make any sense to Kevin Love. In the process, Cleveland set an National Basketball Association record by winning their 13th consecutive series closeout opportunity. (That ratio also holds true going back to last year's Finals, Golden State going 3-0 when scoring 103 or more, 0-4 otherwise.) And the last time that the Warriors shot better than 50 percent and lost was in November - that is, November 2014. "[With that said, ] I came out in preseason this year and threw a behind-the-back pass because I have confidence that I can do it and it won't change that", he said.

"We match up well with them and I think they'd say the same about us". Nobody has a good answer for guarding the 1/3 LeBron/Kyrie Irving pick-and-roll, Kevin Love is one of the best power forwards in the game, they are strong on the glass and can be impressive on defense (the challenge will be doing it consistently this series, they haven't had to up to this point). I fell in love with the game because of Mike.

The three-time NBA Champion became the all-time leading points-scorer in this history of the NBA Playoffs.

"I've always told you guys, anytime I'm linked to any of the greats, even the greatest in Mike, it's just an honor", James told reporters Thursday morning. "That was my mindset". But he said both he and his teammates continue to be inspired by their leader. We didn't talk about championships or anything. "It was taken, they took it", Green said.

"This team is a insane team".

The NBA Finals get underway with Golden State, which finished with a league-best 67-15 record in the regular season, hosting Games 1 and 2 on June 1 and 4.

Lue was asked if it's more hard to identify who that is on Golden State. We've got to come out and play.

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points. However, the Cavs will have had a full week off before the Finals; that should be plenty of rest for King James. They looked well on their way to a third straight sweep of their own before a very lethargic game three.

LeBron undaunted by challenge of facing Warriors in Finals
The back-to-back MVP was considered by many the best basketball player alive a year ago . "I saw the quote from Kevin Love ". Below you can find the NBA Finals schedule and viewing information, along with an X-factor for both juggernauts.

The Warriors and Cavs are 1-1 wins apiece entering the trilogy of National Basketball Association championship rounds. Kyrie Irving continued to shoot himself back into rhythm.

There was none of that in Game 5, where the Cavs won for the third time in Boston. He showed no signs of lingering issues, though, beating several defenders off the dribble and handing out seven assists.

The Cavaliers, powered by the game's best player in LeBron James, are 12-1, with their only playoff hiccup coming in a Game Three loss of the Eastern Conference final.

Cleveland's 75 first half points were the most in an National Basketball Association playoff game half since 2003 and gave them an 18-point cushion.

Celtics: Never led at home in the series. After torching the Celtics for 35, James now sits at 5,995 postseason career points. Held a pregame moment of silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing.

Yes, Jordan needed fewer games than James (179 to 212). Many also consider the current era of dominance to be similar to the early 1980s when the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics seemed to make the Finals every year.

"Everyone wants to say, 'Ah man, this is boring and this, that and the other, ' but you usually don't appreciate something until you don't have it anymore", Green said.
