Warriors owner 'tired' of facing LeBron, Cavaliers in NBA Finals

"I walked in at halftime and said I didn't recognize this team".

Boston expressed the same sentiment last season (and in 2012), just like Chicago, Indiana, Indiana again, Atlanta and Toronto in years prior. Paul Pierce, whose number was retired by the Celtics this season, cheered the team on from courtside. "The second half was unbelievable". It's ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny.

"At the end of the day, the game is won in between the lines, and we have an opportunity to play for a championship", he said after Sunday's 87-79 victory over Boston. But he defeated fatigue to play all 48 minutes, notching another sublime closeout performance. Steph Curry, who finished with 27 points, went 7-of-15 from behind the arc himself - matching the entire Rockets team total. Houston are built on the modern belief, buttressed with analytics, that favors individual contributions and believes the most valuable shots are lay-ups, three-pointers and free throws.

But none of that mattered because Cleveland had No. 23. After scoring 35 points in Game 6, he collected three fouls in less than four minutes to force him to sit out most of the first quarter.

"This is a special moment", Curry said. "And with our team, there's just so much firepower that at some point, we're going to get going". "I like our chances".

In a way, James has delivered like never before.

On the other, the best player of this era and maybe any era. First, without Paul, the Rockets were missing their most reliable midrange player; someone who at times had his way against the Jazz in the second-round series because of his ability to neutralize a club that was generally happy surrender that sort of lower-percentage look. If James hadn't averaged 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists throughout the playoffs, the Cavs wouldn't have advanced past the first round if they even made the postseason to begin with.

"I've always said that this has been one of the most challenging seasons I've had". He sees trends in the game and capitalizes on them with his system.

US Gulf Coast braces for impact as Alberto approaches
Alberto is the first named storm of 2018, and it comes days before the Atlantic hurricane season officially starts on June 1. On Sunday, gusty showers began lashing parts of Florida, and authorities were warning of the possibility of flash flooding .

It comes complete with rimshots and a laugh track to antagonize Eastern Conference opponents.

Half of the 2018 NBA Finals has been set. These Cavs barely escaped their first-round series against IN last month!

Injuries hang over the conclusion of the Western Conference Finals. They had the misfortune of trying to hold a lead against a team that rarely flinches. "It could have splintered", Curry said in his press conference.

Speaking of greatness, none other than Kobe Bryant weighed in on the Michael Jordan and LeBron GOAT debate. That would be a disservice to the greatness he has exhibited for 15 years and counting. "The way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from - I know his parents - he's just built for stardom".

"I don't know. I mean, obviously, I've been playing well in the third quarter this series. I just like to compete".

The veteran swingman Iguodala, plagued by a lower leg contusion he suffered in a collision with Harden in Game 3, missed the final four games of the series.

That, of course, might have been different with Paul, the soul of this team, on the floor.
