"We don't know yet", said James. "But we're not satisfied".
So far this postseason, the point guard has been nearly impossible to stop on any shots from the left side of the court, along with from most spots below the free-throw line and free-throw line extended. "Everybody has been waiting to get to this point in the season". He not only averaged just as many points, but he did so on nearly four or five fewer shots per game, while playing the most efficient basketball he has ever played and not touching the ball as much as he has over the last couple years.
So, of course, is last season, when James took advantage of Draymond Green's suspension to knock off the team with the best regular-season record in league history. It wasn't meant to commemorate last year's accomplishment. "We have to be ready to compete and play and leave it all on the floor". Durant is terrific but not quite as fabulous as James.
One of the few things that hasn't gone right for Golden State this postseason has been Klay Thompson's shooting. But we're both better.
It was hard for James to think that he won't be home with his family until next week and he said he would settle instead for a FaceTime call, saying, "It's kind of killing me right now".
She said she was unable to confirm what specifically was scrawled on the gate.
"It's a great run - 12-0 is great".
We will all have to wait and see how this series unfolds to find out. It's a watershed moment in Cleveland sports history. The Warriors seek a fifth National Basketball Association title in franchise history on the 70th anniversary of their first, which came in 1947 when the team was based in Philadelphia.
This is about the Cavaliers, Warriors and the title that lies between them, each with a claim to it.
Why will the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in the three-match of the NBA Finals? Golden State Warriors' JaVale McGee dribbles during an NBA basketball practice, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. Korver ranks second among all active players with 104 playoff games without a Finals appearance, trailing only Joe Johnson's 112 games. On that Lakers squad was current Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue. Those numbers are based on regular-season results. "And a big part of it is because he's always been a team-first guy".
Durant has a much better team and has become a much more complete player now in his first season with the Warriors. If not, Brown, who replaced him midway through the first round, faces the team he led to the 2007 NBA Finals.
But the individual matchup Breen is most looking forward to is the point guard battle between Curry and Kyrie Irving.
James finished with 48 points (18 of 33 from the field, 10 of 14 from the free-throw line), nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 50-plus minutes of game action.
Durant has not reached the finals since until now. Their bite is worse than their bark, as they will prove for the second straight year when the Finals end. This series will mark James' seventh consecutive NBA Finals.
Here's a hot take: Why does either Michael Jordan's or LeBron James' greatness need to be better than the other?
"I had to congratulate him on his success and the choice he made". And if he feels confident going into a series against an overpowering Warriors team filled with four All-Stars, then the rest of Cleveland should, too. Each does so in his first year with his club. He suffered a concussion in Game 2 and sat out Game 3 because of it.
