Finals pick up where they left off with Cavs-Warriors III
Jun 03, 2017, 02:15
That momentum extended to the finals as Golden State took a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Cavaliers, who had a healthy Irving and Love in the team. LeBron couldn't when he left Cleveland. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23) defends a shot by Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love (0) during the first half of Game 1 of basketball'sNBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, June 1, 2017. Two, I wasn't convinced that adding Kevin Durant to the Warriors' loaded mix would be as seamless as Golden State has made it look. And for the third straight year, the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors.
After a stint as an National Basketball Association analyst for ESPN, Brown in May 2011 succeeded Phil Jackson as coach of the Lakers.
McGee, one of Golden State's reserves, played just enough to qualify for the scoring title and set career highs in points per possession (1.2), win shares per 48 minutes (.225) and effective field goal percentage (65.2 percent). The Cavs, on the other hand, lost Kevin Love in the first round and would eventually lose Kyrie Irving in overtime of game one of the NBA Finals.
Back to the path that Brown traveled since the Cavs hired him in 2005 to shape an upwardly mobile team anchored by young superstar LeBron James.

Let's get back to those numbers. He averaged a quiet 13.8 points in the first two rounds, then busted out for 22.6 points and 12.4 rebounds per game against Boston in the Eastern Conference finals.
One of the few things that hasn't gone right for Golden State this postseason has been Klay Thompson's shooting.
"When he's going, he makes their team a lot better", Green said, "so it is my job to try to take him out of the game". That's mind-boggling. We're talking the same LeBron Jameswho, after winning two titles in Miami, returned home to get Cleveland a long-awaited title (mission accomplished), who kept the injury-ridden Cavs afloat in 2015 and found a way to race the length of the court for the miraculous blocked shot that turned last season's Game 7 Cleveland's way. Last year, Russell Westbrook was Durant's teammate.
