  • The Warriors will be aiming to defend their NBA title against the Cavaliers

Some believe Houston could make a run at LeBron James if he chooses to leave Cleveland, but the Rockets would have to make a lot of changes to their roster to be able to afford him. They shot themselves all the way from prime position to advance to the NBA Finals to the end of a solid season.

Durant, who has averaged 29.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game this postseason, said he can not control his on-court performance being compared to James. In fact, the former coach, set to work his 12th Finals for ABC/ESPN, would be surprised if LeBron James and Co. win even a single game against the defending champions.

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni says the series goes a bit differently if Paul is available for one last game, but at the same time, Warriors coach Steve Kerr says with Iguodala on the court, the Paul injury would have never come into play.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are about to face off in the NBA Finals starting Thursday - and what better way to get amped for the match-up than a shamelessly tacky 1980s-style parody video?

However, as Van Gundy noted, the Finals will feature plenty of star power, which should be enough to ensure viewer interest, even if the series turns out to be as lopsided as many expect.

The win secures a Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers matchup in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive season.


This wasn't all peaches for Golden State, either. He's going up against a great team with FOUR superb players. We've been hearing for years that the Warriors' dominance has trivialized the season and that Kevin Durant has ruined the National Basketball Association, but people are still tuning in.

The Warriors swept their two regular-season meetings with the Cavaliers, winning by seven at home on Christmas Day (without Curry) and prevailing by 10 in Cleveland about three weeks later. The lowest field goal percentage and a drastically lower 3-point percentage for their opponents both occur in the third quarter.

But after the final buzzer sounded and the Warriors had eliminated the Rockets in Game 7, D'Antoni approached superstar Kevin Durant.

The series stands at 2-1 right now.

On the other, the best player of this era and maybe any era. When Korver gives the Cavaliers double-digit points in these playoffs, they're 8-1.

The Cavaliers, meanwhile, were +250 underdogs past year, far less extreme than their +650 line this time around. Jake Madison (@NolaJake) and John Karalis (@RedsArmy_John) preview the series and try and figure out a way the Cavs can win.Learn more about your ad choices.
