Bill Simmons Joins WFAN To Give NBA Finals Prediction

  • LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will face Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals

"He took it the hardest, I thought, because he knew if he hadn't had the unfortunate injury, he's dragging us the last (way to the Finals)", Morey said Wednesday.

"I thought we were going to take a timeout because I got the rebound".

I'm going to assume that the Cavs stay with their "big" lineup to kick off the series, even if Kevin Love returns for Game 1.

James said he didn't know what Smith was thinking and walked out of the postgame news conference after growing exhausted of repeated questioning about whether Smith knew the score. Klay Thompson looked to be seriously hurt just a few minutes into the game after a collision with J.R. Smith, but thankfully returned to the game a short time later. "But he shot the shot I don't know, maybe he was trying to increase his points but that was some (expletive) but I was there to contest".

Durant levelled the game from the free-throw line, before James put the Cavaliers back in front.

The play came with about 30 seconds left and the Cavaliers leading 104-102 after James converted a three-point play as part of a 51-point night.




A charging call against against Kevin Durant was reviewed and overturned and called a blocking foul on LeBron James with 50.8 seconds left in regulation. I think he has the ability to make shots, to make timely shots, to make deep shots and to make momentum changing shots.

The Warriors and the Cavaliers meet in the National Basketball Association finals for the fourth year in a row.

James had his highest-scoring playoff game ever, tied Jerry West for the most 40-point games in a single postseason with eight and nearly single-handedly led the Cavs to the win.

"If you are defensive rebounding you are limiting somebody else's shots". As a member of the Clippers, he missed the first two games of a second-round series in 2015 against the Rockets, eventually resulting in a Game 7 loss.

James, who has carried his fourth-seeded Cavs to his eighth consecutive NBA Finals, said the key to success would be staying aggressive and getting his team mates involved. We just came up short. LeBron James had 24 points on an absurd 9-11 from the field and the Cavs as a whole shot 52% from the field. That's why he's the best player in the world.

"He just has to get it to a Game 7, because if he gets to Game 7, and he's the best guy on the court and can shorten the game, they could win the series", Simmons said Thursday.
