LeBron Getting Swept Would Benefit the NBA

"We had our chances", James said. "And they told me, yes". 15 years from now people are going to look back on this debate and realize that they were not appreciating the greatness that they are witnessing from Lebron James because they were to anxious about debating if he was the GOAT or not.

The 2018 NBA Finals is only two games old, yet it is already filled with many significant storylines.

Durant had 24 points and 8 rebounds in the first half while the Warriors' other 4 starters made a combined 5-of-20 from the floor for only 13 first-half points and Cleveland enjoyed a 28-16 first-half rebounding edge. He's been leading us and been great, not only this season, but seasons past.

"He's pretty much unsafe every night, but (down in a series) we know the force he's going to bring and the pressure he's going to put on us, and we have to be able to withstand that", Kerr said.

I'm not really going to factor in the Perkins-Curry beef into any decision-making, mostly because Perkins is irrelevant. Curry scored on a lay-up, then hit his only three-pointer of the night (after missing his first nine), followed by another three-pointer from Durant to put Golden State up 106-100 with 49 seconds remaining. So we've got to continue to just grind and defend as we did tonight. Our guys just play.

While Kerr looked forward, James was forced to take another glance back at Game 1. There have been games where Steph takes over. The team said after the game that he's OK. Tell us who was clutch in the comments! How are we going to attack. "So we try to find areas where we can attack and take advantage of matchups and give ourselves the best chance to score".

After burying a 3-pointer on the left wing in the final minute of Game 3 here last year to give Golden State a 3-0 lead, Durant stepped into almost the exact same spot and made another 3 to do it again this year.

Though the Warriors enjoyed a third-quarter surge in which they reversed a six-point halftime deficit, the Cavaliers managed to withstand the run, as the teams alternated leads in the fourth quarter. With King James playing like he is, Golden State knows they can not sleep on this Cleveland squad.

From there, the game never got outside of five points in either direction until Durant's crushing 3.

"We got stagnant", Love said. "That situation may not happen again", he said. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots".

It's not the trophy he hoped to lift this season, but DeMar DeRozan was on Tuesday named the victor of the Magic Johnson Award by the Professional Basketball Writers Association. "He's one of the smartest players in the league".

The Raptors guard is the second Raptor to win it, following Chris Bosh in 2010.
