Stephen Curry insists LeBron James' Cavs teammates deserve more respect

  • NBA fans had plenty of jokes for Jayson Tatum's thunderous poster dunk on LeBron

"They are clearly the favorite, without question, but the luxury of having the best player in the world in that situation, anything can happen".

The Warriors will host the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday as they look to win a third title in four years and second consecutive championship.

If they were going to lose, it would have been in the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets.

Golden State, Cleveland NBA Finals History
The Cavaliers dealt their star point guard, Kyrie Irving , to Boston in the offseason, and that move backfired. Per ESPN , the Warriors are a -1000 favorite in the series, while the Cavaliers are +650 underdogs.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue isn't blinking. There have been just two games in the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs in which Cleveland has shot 40 percent or better from behind the arc while limiting opponents to 32 percent or less: Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors and Game 3 against the Boston Celtics. We've gotten better and better throughout the course of the playoffs. If the Cavs are going to have any chance against the greatest collection of talent ever assembled, he'll need to keep up that level of play. Maybe Paul's presence means more in the Game 6 and 7 losses than Iguodala's would have meant in Games 4 and 5, but we will never find out.

I'm in the camp who believes LeBron James can bypass Micahel Jordan by doing something nobody believes can be done.

The Houston Rockets fell apart on Monday night, losing to the Golden State Warriors 101-92 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.

LeBron James owns Terry Rozier with vicious chase-down block
Love called his Game 7 availability a "toss-up" after the game, but that's probably even being optimistic. Terry Rozier paced the Celtics - now 1-6 on the road - with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown had 27.

The Golden State Warriors suffered a scare when Steph Curry who took an awkward fall, thankfully the two-time MVP didn't seriously injure himself. That's why Cleveland is still in these playoffs.

The Cavs have twice been pushed to seven games, overcome injuries and gotten much-needed contributions to ease the burden on James from role players Green, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

"With that being said, Houston, the majority of the (conference finals) series, they did a very good job defensively following game plan discipline". "They have (James), the best player in the world".

Kanye himself has remained mum about the fallout, especially following the organization's decision to disassociate from him. Kanye recently produced "Infared" by Pusha T , which called out Drake for allegedly using ghostwriters for his music.

"We can't worry about what the outside guys are saying and who's being picked", said Lue. James excelled as usual, and his supporting cast, including J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson, George Hill, gave just enough help to win.
