LeBron James: Kevin Durant addresses critics ahead of NBA Finals

  • Hey Warriors It's Time to Come Out and Play

Following the game, James described the Cavs' 2017-18 season to Cedar Point, full of plenty of ups and downs. The Cavaliers dealt their star point guard, Kyrie Irving, to Boston in the offseason, and that move backfired.

Starting Friday, fans can watch Part IV of the modern rivalry between arguably the era's best team in the Warriors and arguably its best player in LeBron James live and on free TV via ABS-CBN Channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23.

"First of all, they've done that all year against everybody", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said of the Warriors' third-quarter surge.

With another Game 7 victory at stake, LeBron James would not miss. Cleveland defeated Golden State in Game 3 of the 2016 Finals when Love was sidelined. "Our focus is winning a championship, playing our best basketball heading into the playoffs, which I thought we got better and better over the course of the playoffs".

Love collided with Boston Celtics' rookie Jayson Tatum during Game 6, and was not cleared to suit up for the pivotal Game 7 over the weekend.

So how insane was it that Houston missed that many threes - many of which were wide open - in a row? The Rockets fell apart in the second half again after doing so in Game 6.


The Warriors overcame a 15-point first-half deficit to record a 101-92 win over the home side. He's seemingly unstoppable in elimination games. The only difference this time is LeBron James and the Cavaliers are huge underdogs.

Curry scored 14 of Golden State's 33 points in the third quarter as Houston's shooting didn't just go cold, it froze. By removing both a passing and scoring option from the floor, Paul, nicknamed "CP3" for his jersey number, was the three the Rockets missed most of all.

With the help of Second Spectrum, we take a look at what Klay Thompson and Steph Curry need to do in Game 7 to beat the Rockets.

Tatum had a dunk over James with 6:41 left - and stared down the Cavaliers star and bumped him with his chest - and then followed it with a 3-pointer that gave the Celtics a 72-71 lead. The Milwaukee Bucks' "Greek Freak", Giannis Antetokounmpo, has drawn national attention for his prowess.

James has been in the finals every year since 2011 - four with Miami, and now four straight with Cleveland. The Warriors were around -300 over the Cavaliers in last year's Finals.

If the Cavaliers win this championship, it might be time to declare the regular season irrelevant. "They are clearly the favorite, without question, but the luxury of having the best player in the world in that situation, anything can happen". Ariza and Dennis Johnson are the only two players to go 0-for-12 or worse in a Game 7, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
