CLEVELAND Consider LeBron James impressed. He’s seen the Warriors now 16 times in the last three NBA Finals, and this version with Kevin Durant on board has him stumped. He has called these Warriors a juggernaut, said they rank right up there with the best teams he’s ever seen and added that any of the Warriors stars could lead a franchise without anybody else.
Game Mens Zane Beadles Jersey Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green give the Warriors four All-Star players who are still on the happy side of 30 years old. Curry is 29, and Durant turns 29 in September. Thompson and Green are 27. It’s a wrecking-ball foursome that stands on the brink of a championship and a possible perfect 16-0 playoff run, one that has the rest of the league as well as fans, broadcasters and folks in the league office worried about the impact of a collapse of competitive balance.
Cavs take the lead … but Curry answers. Love drills a 3-pointer to put Cleveland ahead 71-69, then Curry finishes the traditional 3-point play to push the Warriors back on top. Close playoff game!
Pachulia hit nothing but air on a midrange jumper and picked up his fourth foul on a moving screen. Then Green picks up his fourth foul in transition after running into James. The Cavs have cut the lead to one and seem to be grabbing momentum.
Game Mens Dez Bryant Jersey Irving hits a buzzer-beater to close the half, but the Cavs trail by six heading into the locker room. Thompson (21 points), Durant (16 points) and Curry (14 points) are sharing the scoring duties. James has done it all again for the Cavs with 27 points, four rebounds and three assists. Irving offered some assistance with 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting. Cleveland is working incredibly hard, but Golden State is just relentless in its attack. Let’s see if the Cavs can hold on this time.
