Cleveland Cavaliers win title in six games? Here's how

The best that can be said of the Cavs is they have shooters. Durant played well, averaging 30.6 points and shooting 55 percent but James came out on top.

Visibly shaken by an event he couldn't control, Cleveland's star struggled Wednesday to focus on his seventh straight NBA Finals or the Golden State Warriors.

National Football League players would kill for that much time off. Baseball and hockey just laugh at it.

"As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events that we have in sports, you know, race and what's going on comes again, and on my behalf and my family's behalf".

"Yeah, I agree with him", said Love, who can expect to be on the receiving end of Green's verbal jabs when the two players match up against each other.

This breaks the old record of looking ahead from the current 344 days (since the end of Game 7 last year), a record for luring degenerates that rivals the books that put out opening National Football League lines the day after the 2017 schedule was released.

It's only the fourth time - and first in National Basketball Association history - that two teams from the four major sports have met with a title at stake in three straight seasons. "I think that was his choice and why he made it. But it's really special". You've got to challenge him and not get discouraged. "So, it's going to be very challenging not only on me mentally, but on our ballclub and on our franchise". "Surreal feeling even though we kind of expected to be here". James won his first National Basketball Association title five years ago at Durant's expense, and now Durant tries to get his first playing against James.

Don't give up yet, kids, we're nearly there.

All the newcomers remembered watching these two teams square off the past two Junes as fans. "We do it for each other". But he'd never been further than the Eastern Conference finals and had lost to James both times, in 2011 when Korver's Bulls fell to James and the Miami Heat and in 2015 when the Cavs swept the Hawks. They're 12-0 in the playoffs. But his best previous finish was a loss to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals in 2006-07 with the Jazz. They have dramatically different physiques and styles but are widely considered, with justification, the two best players in the game.

Both teams appear to be playing their best basketball at the most important time. "He's competitive and he wants to win, so you can bet that he's not happy about a year ago and he's going to go after this one".

The NBA's Finals schedule.

"So it's the even-keel mentality about our coach and it definitely helps us as players when we're going out into a war".

"I was like, 'Man, can we really turn it on?' " Williams said. His players credit Lue's soothing, steady influence - on and off the floor - as almost as vital to their success as a clutch Kyrie Irving 3-pointer. Cleveland will have to slow down a team that has been clobbering teams by 16.3 points per game in the postseason. The blueprint they created along the way is one from which the Nuggets, who haven't been back to the playoffs since losing as the No. 3 seed in that series, can still make note of. He tied his 2017 single-game playoff high with 14 points in the clincher in Boston.

"It means a lot. He always played Pee Wee football and you would walk to the field and you'd see NaVorro wearing a No. 99 jersey, all black on with a visor, just bigger than everybody else", Durant said. "The only thing they did is make us upset".

But is it too much of a good thing? "So I think you have to go back to your coaches and people running the teams and tell them to use their best judgment". Of course not. Are you going to be excited about it, have an unbelievable feeling if you win?
