The Dime Roundtable Predicts The Winner Of The 2018 NBA Finals

01 June, 2018, 16:43 | Author: Candice Daniels
  • LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will face Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals

It had all the makings of some sort of knee structural disaster - the hit came from the side, Thompson twisted awkwardly, went down in a heap and was obviously in immediate, intense pain.

"I'm just trying to figure out how to move in general, but I'm making some progress, slower that we expected", Iguodala said.

Many firsts were witnessed in the 2018 Conference Finals.

Instead, the game went to overtime.

The NBA Finals MVP trophy is one of the few awards to have eluded Stephen Curry during his illustrious career, but he's not losing any sleep over it. "That's the only thing I can do".

From Cleveland's perspective, bad things.

The Warriors took a seven-point lead in the third quarter but turnovers and miscues and the continued dominance of James kept the game close in the fourth.

Despite the Cavs and Warriors meeting in the Finals for the fourth consecutive year - and the Warriors entering the series as the heavy favorite- LeBron James and Kevin Durant don't agree with some fans saying that the matchup has gotten stale.

Instead, she said, the president's remarks on the issue were simply created to point out "the hypocrisy in the media". Roseanne has also claimed that being called a racist is much more hurtful than having her show cancelled by ABC.

The look on James' face afterwards said it all.

James was well outside the area, and the Cavs didn't buy the explanation. "I mean, it may not be as suspenseful as a lot of people may want it to be or as drama-filled, but that's what you've got movies and music for".

Even if LeBron James shows the same performance he did in their previous games, it remains questionable if the Cavaliers have a real chance of beating the Warriors' "Super Death Lineup" in a best-of series.

Hill missed the second free throw with J.R. Smith securing the rebound, but the guard dribbled back toward halfcourt, apparently thinking the Cavs had a lead. Made the first. Missed the second. I'm pretty sure everybody didn't think I was going to shoot it over KD. Overtime. Big break No. 4. "He thought we were up one", coach Tyronn Lue said.

"I knew it was tied", Smith insisted.

Golden State dominated the extra five minutes, starting it with a 9-0 run. The home team left happy. Cleveland lost by almost 17 points per game in their three trips to Oracle Arena last season.

"We understand how hard and how challenging this task is", James told reporters after the game, which marked the fourth consecutive year the teams have met in the Finals. He's just the sixth player to score 50 or more in the Finals, but the first one in a loss.
