Warriors send off Rockets, face LeBron's Cavs anew in NBA Finals

  • ESPN Matches 2012 High In Game 7 Of NBA Eastern Conference Finals

While Golden State will go into the finals as the prohibitive favorite, the Cavaliers and the way James has carried his team on his back are the story of the playoffs. He's done this by dragging his teammates into the eight consecutive NBA Finals of his career. He didn't really catch on to that one until last summer when he joined his old coach, Tyronn Lue, who was an assistant on the Celtics when Green played there. "Like it's - they're National Basketball Association players, and yeah they're new and what-not and 'Bron is incredible, he played an unbelievable playoff run to date and has willed his team to his eighth straight Finals and all that, which is unbelievable to think about the consistency and the longevity and just the level of greatness that he's shown in the Eastern Conference". James and Love combined to score 100 points in the two games, but Dwyane Wade, Jae Crowder and Thomas were all shipped elsewhere by the Cavs in a series of trade-deadline moves.

When the Cavaliers and Warriors met previous year in the finals for the third consecutive time, it marked the first "threematch" in NBA Finals history.

Onshore areas along the coast also account for about 45 percent of US refining capacity and 51 percent of gas processing. With maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), Alberto was moving north at 9 miles per hour (14 kph).

The Warriors are 12-point favorites to win Thursday's Game 1, the largest spread in a Finals game since 1991, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

These comments appeared online nearly instantly after the Cavaliers Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, and as the age-old debate reared it's head once again, the legendary Kobe Bryant offered some choice words on the GOAT argument. With his co-star, Chris Paul, sidelined, Houston relied on Harden to create offense, but his shots weren't falling. Kevin [Durant] keeps us going with just his methodical scoring.

Williams , a three-time French Open champion, is expected to play in her first major since returning from maternity leave. Williams tweeted that, for the second time in a week, she was being asked to produce a sample for an anti-doping test.

Who would ever count out LeBron James? Maybe more than the style of play is who is executing it and the Rockets just didn't have the shooters the Warriors do. In the early numbers that's up 7% over last year's Game 1 between the winning Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators.

But their youth showed on Sunday night, when they withered under the spotlight of a decisive Game 7. What LeBron did in this playoffs is absolutely ridiculous and must be appreciated, but the Warriors are a juggernaut and will not be stopped by Jeff Green and Kyle Korver. "We're going to try to get better throughout the series, and we'll see what happens".

Manchester United set to announce first mega-money summer transfer
The 25-year old finished the campaign with 4 goals and 7 assists in 37 appearances across all competitions. If he were to arrive at Manchester United he would add to manager Jose Mourinho's options.

While Love has been solid, Smith and Thompson haven't always come through this season for Cleveland. And just because a guy is not playing well, you can't give up on a guy.
