Cleveland Cavaliers unfazed by underdog status in 2018 NBA Finals

Former NBA player Isiah Thomas thinks that the Lebron James Michael Jordan debate isn’t even close. More

Kevin Durant erupted for 34 points as the Warriors arranged a 4th straight championship duel against LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

The Warriors will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one of the finals on Thursday night in the fourth straight matchup between the teams. The Cavaliers dealt their star point guard, Kyrie Irving, to Boston in the offseason, and that move backfired. Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Lonzo Ball cannot only learn about the nuances of LeBron's game but they will learn something that has been missing from the team: winning. "They have (James), the best player in the world". He started for Kevin Love and scored 19 points with eight rebounds, and provided the versatility to switch onto any Boston player on defense in what was Cleveland's best defensive performance statistically of the entire season. James totaled 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists, and two blocks while knocking down 12-of-24 from the field, 3-of-8 from beyond the arc, and 8-of-11 from the free-throw line. According to reports, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue revealed that Love's status for Game 1 of the Finals is still unclear, telling reporters he's "not sure" if the 10-year veteran will be cleared. It wrapped a strong conference final for the network, an average 6.3 rating with households. The veteran scored 14 points on 10 shots in Game 6.

"We're all going to try to paint a picture of there's a chance that Cleveland could win", Van Gundy said. Houston kept firing threes despite missing consistently.

The Rockets fell apart in the second half again after doing so in game six. "One half of basketball", Harden said.


The Western Conference finals ended up defined by a seemingly innocuous moment late in Game 5. The Rockets had no answer for the Warriors in the third quarter of most of their games this series and it was that quarter that propelled the Warriors to another NBA Finals appearance. By removing both a passing and scoring option from the floor, Paul, nicknamed "CP3" for his jersey number, was the three the Rockets missed most of all.

Curry, before he could look forward to the finals, he took some time to reflect on what it took to get past the Rockets and appreciate the accomplishment of having another shot at the title.

The most watched NBA game all season and the second most watched pro-basketball game in cable history, last night's GSW WCF victor peaked with 18 million sets of eyeballs on the ball right near the end during the 11 - 11:15 PM ET slot.
