‘Warriors in 5’ was trending on Twitter before Finals Game 1 started

‘Warriors in 5’ was trending on Twitter before Finals Game 1 started

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers reacts after being hit in the face in the first half against the Boston Celtics during Game Two of the 2018 NBA Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on May 15, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Though Green has played well for the Cavs, coach Lue noted that Love would start against the Warriors if he clears protocol.

Love, 29, is averaging 13.9 points and 10 rebounds per game in the postseason.

Love had a huge game against the Warriors on Christmas with 31 points and 18 rebounds, but has largely struggled in the Finals against Golden State. He also pointed to 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, a defensive pest against James in past title rounds ("He has very, very quick hands") who will miss Game 1, at least, with a bruised leg. The Cavaliers will still be underdogs even with Iggy out of the lineup, because they have three of the best ten shooters in the league. "Just looking forward to the challenge of going out there and helping the team win".

"You can get impatient", Iguodala said.

The dramatic release of frustration sparked an adrenaline surge that carried Williams all the way to her fighting comeback win. Her 13 aces and 29 winners weren't crushing, but they got the job done. "It's such a great feeling", she added.

James went on to note that he felt like the "odds were against" the Cavaliers from the summer. "Obviously I wasn't part of the communication and know exactly what was going on between the two sides, but I felt it was just bad timing for our team to get rid of our point guard in Kyrie Irving".

"Their head coach is the one who puts it all together, makes it all flow", James said. At media day on Wednesday in advance of the Finals matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Curry was asked about his thoughts on that elusive honor pretty early during his media address.

If the Warriors go on their patented third quarter runs like they did against the Rockets then not even the hottest LeBron James would be able to counter that punch. The argument started after the NBA Finals in 2017 whether Durant was better than James, and it was exclusively because of the former Thunder forward's ability to match James shot for shot.

"I can guarantee you that Steph is not up late thinking about winning the Finals MVP", Draymond Green told ESPN.
