Warriors favored over LeBron and Cavaliers in the finals

This one is the tiebreaker, after the Warriors won two years ago and the Cavaliers knocked off Golden State last June.

"Like I'm the reason why (expletive) Orlando couldn't make the playoffs for five, six years in a row?" "Am I the reason that Brooklyn gave all their picks to Boston? This is a great moment, and this is not promised", James said. One talented player can have a huge impact on their team. He's been present at practice and recently traveled with the team at the end of the Warriors' sweep against the Spurs.

While there have been 14 rematches in NBA Finals history, this year's meeting between LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors will be the first trilogy in league history.

After this year's lackluster NBA playoffs, buckle up: The Warriors and Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year. Durant signed a 2-year, $54.3 million contract with the Warriors last offseason.

"I'm just at peace with myself; I'm at peace with myself as a basketball player, most importantly", Durant said.

The cuts are the biggest to Ford's USA white collar staff since 2007, when 7,200 workers took voluntary buyout packages. Ford also isn't likely to cut jobs in its emerging businesses, such as its research center in Palo Alto, California.

"I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there", he quipped.

"It made me really appreciate that".

"It's carried me to this point now, and it's going to carry me for the rest of my career because scoring is not number one on my agenda".

Deron Williams, who had been quiet for most of the series, also got in on the act with a series-best 14 points for Cleveland. "I just have to keep going and figure out what I've got do to come back at the highest level possible". Every night was hard.

Just before halftime, Avery Bradley leaked out for a couple of transition buckets, charging the TD Garden crowd to go insane. It's not about wanting to establish himself as the NBA's greatest player.

Trump budget slashes safety-net programs
Specifically, Trump's budget would lift the spending cap on defence and pump a further $54bn into the department in 2018. Overall, the budget would reduce spending on means-tested anti-poverty programs by $272 billion over the next 10 years.

The 5-foot-8 point guard said he wants to play until he's 40, and he'd like to do it in Boston. "So I didn't ever believe I could be Mike". The so-called "luxury tax" can be exceeded, but most teams are leery about doing it.

"So maybe there's just not an understanding of what you're watching. It's too stressful, and I'm not stressed right now". LeBron James and company were unbeaten through 10 games before losing to the Celtics on a last-second 3-pointer in Sunday's Game 3. The team's only loss in the series, which came in Game 3, was due to a poor performance by superstar LeBron James.

Three-time champion LeBron James, who along with teammate James Jones will be in his seventh straight NBA Finals (it will be James' eighth overall), certainly understands the enormity and uniqueness of the upcoming series, but the four-time league MVP wasn't quite ready to look ahead after eliminating Boston.

When asked about his thoughts facing the Golden State Warriors in the finals, Irving said, "I can't wait". "I wasn't used to this much attention, no matter if it was good or bad". That was my mindset when I started playing the game.

The Cavaliers left The Q after winning Game 4 on May 23 determined to play well defensively for 48 minutes in Game 5, and that is what they did. But no one forgets his performance in game 7, including the clutch shot over a slightly-too-late Kawhi Leonard, finishing with 37 points in 45 minutes en route to a 95-88 win, 2nd consecutive National Basketball Association championship and back-to-back Finals MVP awards.
