It's Déjà Vu All Over Again: Warriors To Meet Cavs In NBA Finals

It's Déjà Vu All Over Again: Warriors To Meet Cavs In NBA Finals

The Golden State Warriors looked extremely vulnerable in their Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets.

Stephen Curry scored 14 points in the third quarter, helping the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets and advance to the NBA Finals. The only game that's matched that spread was Game 1 of the 2001 NBA Finals between the Lakers and 76ers. While some teams have figured it out, Steve Kerr never seems to run out of new plays to unleash.

When he spoke of how the Cavaliers need LeBron James to be great and must shoot "lights out" from the three-point line, he meant that was what they would require "to have a chance to win a game". For their part, the Warriors won a four-year low 58 regular season games.

The teams have changed mightily over the last four seasons.

One man can only do so much.LeBron James against all odds brought his Cleveland Cavaliers to the National Basketball Association finals for the fourth year in a row despite getting nearly zero help from his teammates.

Draymond Green had 13 rebounds and 10 points. "We've got three of the best shot-makers in the league. we stayed with it". Curry scored 14 of Golden State's 33 points in the third quarter as Houston's shooting didn't just go cold, it froze.

There wasn't a Game 7 in last year's Western Conference Finals, but overall this year's series is up 48% from 2017 when it was on ESPN and 51% over the ECF on TNT.

The Warriors will host LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in game one of the finals on Thursday night (Friday AEST) in the fourth straight matchup between the teams. They can win without him, but it certainly makes it tougher.

Injured forward Andre Iguodala continues to search for ways to return from a leg injury in time for the NBA Finals. But it all fell apart in the final two games.

The widely held belief that Golden State has a far better team than Cleveland had reporters wondering how Van Gundy could "sell this thing coming out of the gates and get people excited about this". The Cavaliers may have LeBron James, but they're going to be the biggest underdog in a Finals since his career started in 2003.

James and Love combined to score 100 points in the two games, but Dwyane Wade, Jae Crowder and Thomas were all shipped elsewhere by the Cavs in a series of trade-deadline moves.

"I can not do that next series, and that's a big no-no", he said. Those teams were much more evenly matched with stacked squads of talent.
