Warriors and Cavaliers set to do battle again in Finals

Well, Game 1 sure was interesting. His pass was nearly picked off, but J.R. Smith's gamble turned out to be ill-advised. From there, it was game on, as the two teams went back and forth, trading burst after burst until an absurd final few possessions. But it wasn't enough when Curry answered with a three-point play followed by Smith's miscue. In others, it evoked frustration or anger at the salary-cap spike two years ago that allowed the Warriors to add Kevin Durant. Although Andre Iguodala missed Game 1, there's still an outrageous amount of weapons on the Warriors' roster.

Game 7 of the Western Conference finals is a flawless example of how the Warriors can strike quickly.

But, LeBron James is the best player in National Basketball Association history. Most people believed the Cavaliers won the trade mainly because of the valuable assets they got from the player who already wanted his way out of the team.

Love is averaging 13.9 points on 38.8 percent shooting, 10.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game during the 2018 postseason.

Physical intensity was on display from the start, with Cleveland's J.R. Smith slipping and falling into Klay Thompson, forcing the Warriors guard to the locker room for a spell in the first quarter with a bruised left leg.
