The Cavaliers re-entry stamp was always good to go as long as James was present and healthy. At the end of the day, I know the way Im built. Curry connected seconds later on his sixth 3-pointer of the night, and just like that Golden State's lead was back to 87-68. "But to do his legacy any justice, let's use this moment as a call to action to all professional athletes to educate ourselves, explore these issues, speak up, use our influence and renounce all violence and, most importantly, go back to our communities, invest our time, our resources, help rebuild them, help strengthen them, help change them". And it was a different league then.
Unless otherwise indicated, all stats from Basketball Reference, NBA.com,ESPN.com or NBA Math and accurate heading into the 2017 NBA Finals. In this day and age, that's impossible-to actually exceed expectations.
This is the most important key to the Warriors walking away with the NBA Championship-they had trouble closing games throughout the season. He has hit just 38 percent of his shots as his normally reliable jumper has failed him.
One of the few things that hasn't gone right for Golden State this postseason has been Klay Thompson's shooting. If we think about any Finals, it's not the stars.
Being philosophical comes naturally for a man like Steve Kerr.
Green and Thompson are a combined 5 for 21. The Warriors won at least once in Cleveland in each of the last two NBA Finals, part of their franchise-record streak of 14 straight series with a road victory. "That gives us a chance in any game". Do you believe in that stuff?
It's hard to fault gamblers for indulging themselves in a high price on a team playing as dominant as the defending champions. When they're good, you still can't make mistakes to win. A robot can't coach a team, inspire a team. "[Guarding] Iverson, who was probably one of the most feared guys in the league back when I played when he was in the league". Whatever gets you going. There's no surprise, no strategy, no experience involved.
Personally, I would have to say that leaving Durant unguarded is not a wise strategy for the Cavaliers. There's no controlled variable. "I thought he did a good job of that".
"We're doing fine without me", he continued.
"They know they left a ring on the table", Barnes said of his teammates. It's the best feeling in the world. I'm so sorry to these families. "That was just unbelievable". But no! I just want to win. I'm just happy. Most days is laughing and crying at the fact that something like this happened. We don't care if they're bored. Don't take this Cavs team, especially LeBron James, for granted because they have a chance to cement themselves as one of the best teams in National Basketball Association history in the next couple weeks.
The role of the athlete is first of all, to be true to yourself.
"Then it becomes a game of concentration". You don't have to go search for an opinion. I think the real hype is on Golden State because some people have given Curry this persona that he somehow, someway needs to seek revenge, or redeem himself. The two don't do too much outside of the paint offensively, but they bring plenty of energy to their respected teams. "After we was able to accomplish that past year and we celebrated for a few days, I got right back to work, mentally and physically get my body ready because I wanted to be able to put myself and put our teammates and put our franchise in position where we had an opportunity to do it again".
So who do you have in this series? If anyone learned that humiliating lesson a year ago, it's Golden State. "I know it wouldn't jolt me", Brown said, per ESPN.
Often times the simplest answer is the right one.
"I don't have beef with them". That just sets it up for the narrative of an upset, and this is not an upset.
To preface this section, we get it-when you have four superstars in your starting lineup someone is not going to get their piece of the pie.
