The 2018 NBA Finals are unlikely to make it that far, but this certainly isn't a boring matchup either.
OAKLAND, Calif. - For the second time in the last four years, the Cleveland Cavaliers enter the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors without All-Star Kevin Love as a lock to play in Game 1. "My concern is how can I impact this series to help my team win a championship".
Coach Tyronn Lue said Wednesday that if Love were cleared to play against the Warriors, he would start. His defense has been fantastic, and that's where he could have the biggest impact in the Finals. "I think he took it the hardest". It can (and will) be easy to get caught up in LeBron's greatness during the Finals. On the eve of his fourth straight Finals, I just wanted to highlight how absurd Curry's shooting has been over the last few years.
Love suffered a concussion Friday in Game 6 of the conference finals and missed Game 7 against the Celtics. The Warriors will fall into that trap, if led there.
"The evaluation indicated Iguodala is making progress", the statement said. While Cleveland has to stop Golden State's offense if they are to have a chance of winning the series, they also need to do a lot more at the other end of the court.
Osman averaged 3.9 points on 48% shooting and 37% from beyond the arc to go along with two rebounds in 11 minutes of play during the campaign, but his playing time has been nearly nonexistent, as he has only played more than five minutes in a single game during blowouts.

The Main Street area remains closed to residents and business owners as rescue teams and engineers continue to assess the damage. The flooding in 2016 caused catastrophic damage , but 96 percent of the businesses downtown rebuilt and reopened.
Golden State has outscored its opponents by a ridiculous 130 points in the third quarter in these playoffs - an average of 7.6 points a game - and was even better against the Houston Rockets, with a 67-point advantage over seven games. "Just trying to figure out how to move in general".
"I think it's up to other teams; if we want to see a different Finals, then we've got to have other teams win or we've got to set up a different system and not make it Eastern Conference and Western Conference, but make it based upon the records".
Shaun Livingston has been the best fifth man with the rest of the Hampton's lineup (Curry, Durant, Thompson, Green), but he's not as good a defender and more of a midrange shooter.
