Warriors step up in golden moment

May JohnsonJun 01, 2018

For the Golden State Warriors, it is Kevin Durant. Or can LeBron James accomplish what would go down as the greatest achievement in a career that has been full of unforgettable moments, winning his second title in Cleveland against the team that has become his nemesis? It's not like we're not the best friends, and I don't think you should be best friends with a player and an owner shouldn't be best friends unless I'm your father and that's my son, and, OK, cool we could be great then. I played with Shaun so he knows, he knows. His previous high was 100, set in 2010-11, which ended in a Game 6 Finals loss to the Dallas Mavericks in his inaugural campaign with the Miami Heat. He has scored more points in the Western Conference Finals than anybody else in National Basketball Association history.

Said James: "I was outside the charge line, I stepped in, took the contact".

That's one of the countless areas where James has gotten better — one of the countless reasons why the finals are now an annual rite for him.

Kevin Love was still in the protocol when the Cavaliers came to Finals media day, leaving Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue to only say "I hope" Love will be available for the opener. "So it doesn't make sense to go review something if - the review is if he's on the line or if he's close to the charge circle, that's the review". We can't use game one as a feel-out game.

"It's not about proximity [to the restricted area]", McCutchen told ESPN.

More concerning for the Warriors on Thursday was their crunch time defense, or lack thereof.

Kevin Love ruled out for Game 7 against Boston with head injury
Before picking either side in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, you need to read what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein has to say. Game 7 of the series is Sunday night in Boston, with the victor meeting either Houston or Golden State in the NBA Finals.

While the officials were huddled around the replay monitor at the scorers table, the Cavaliers were eagerly plotting their next action. Kevon Looney started again in place of Iguodala, but coach Steve Kerr went to McGee after the break. I'm just trying to play in a way that will help us win a championship.

The two teams are meeting for the fourth consecutive year to form one of the sports most fascinating rivalries. While Durant had the better position, the ball arched over him. "So we had to change it to a blocking foul". Then overturned. Durant hit two free throws to tie the score and the momentum shifted.

The Cavaliers have been made huge underdogs this time around, bigger than any other Finals LeBron James has appeared in.

"The level that I can play at is to be seen, but the level that I put into the game and put into my craft is who I am", he said.

"He thought it was over", Lue said.

However, in this series when every possession will be magnified, Lue will count on four players who have been around since the Cavs first met the Warriors in the 2015 Finals. We want to see your fan photos and videos!
