LeBron James defers on Warriors thoughts: 'It's too stressful'

It's the matchup most expected, the matchup most predicted, and probably the matchup the Cavaliers and Warriors wanted as well. There was too much jubilation and joy in the Cavs' locker room to wade into that territory.

If the previous, embarrassing contests between these two teams (both remarkably easy Cavaliers wins, 117-104 and 130-86) account for anything, your Boston Celtics pulled off a sports miracle on Sunday night.

The Golden State Warriors counted James' improbable win in 2016 by adding the only player on the planet remotely close to James' capabilities.

"Eastern Conference finals, that's the biggest stage I've ever been on", Thomas said at the team's practice facility in Waltham, Massachusetts. The Warriors are being led in the postseason by Stephen Curry. "Thirty teams suit up every year trying to get to this point, and only two teams do. We needed everything tonight".

The Golden State Warriors are likely the better team here.

Jordan's six National Basketball Association titles are twice as many as James's three - two of them won with the Miami Heat before he returned to Cleveland with the avowed aim of bringing a championship to his home state of Ohio.

"I've twisted my ankle so many times on plays like that", Irving said. But there's also a clear respect level between the clubs as well. Stevens said Thomas may consult with two additional specialists. "We can't go back to Boston tied 2-2".

But make no mistake: James is probably the most gifted, transcendent scorer we've seen in this generation.


Like, we didn't know what they were going to run. It's been challenging for us to kind of.

For James, the Finals are an annual rite.

Jordan has never lost a championship that he's competed for.

They'll collide again, starting next week. You obviously hear people saying that it's all about how you respond, and we don't feel like people believed in us and counted us out, but that just put another chip on our shoulder, which I think is good. "We understand it. But we work just as hard as these guys". "So it's a little different now, obviously". Out of all the teams in the National Basketball Association, we're one of the three teams left at this time of the year, and that was one of our goals.

The storylines are many.

The Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 135-102 to clinch the best-of-seven series 4-1. James and Durant will square off in the 2017 NBA Finals.

The Warriors could add the next-best player in the league that doesn't already play in Oakland, but it may not matter.

Notes: Center Zaza Pachulia, who missed Games 3 and 4 at San Antonio in the Western Conference finals with a bruised right heel, is back going through full practices in preparation to play in his first career Finals. "You always come around when we lose, I swear".
