Warriors edge Cavs in overtime despite 51 from James

  • James Harden

One other reason for the odds favoring the Warriors is Cavaliers big man Kevin Love remains in the NBA's concussion protocol, and his status, according to coach Ty Lue, is uncertain whether he can play Game 1. Not sure?" James then says "What do you mean, not sure?

Of course, you don't have to feel out an opponent you have seen in NBA Finals four consecutive years, LeBron knew exactly where he wanted to attack - get the switch and go at Kevon Looney or Stephen Curry in isolation.

"Tonight we played as well as we've played all postseason, and we gave ourselves a chance possession after possession after possession", James said. I tried to bring it out and get enough space to maybe get a shot off.

"I think it was just a level of experience and maturity from our group that helped us get to the finish line", Curry said. "I don't know what was going through J.R.'s head but he made a great rebound".

After the game, Smith maintained he believed his team was going to call a timeout, while his coach, Tyronn Lue, believed Smith thought the Cavaliers were up one point and was trying to dribble out the clock.

Turns out the Cavs not only made the playoffs, but advanced to their 4th straight NBA Finals - and LeBron's 8th straight. It was determined he was out of the restricted area but was not in legal guarding position prior to Durant's separate shooting motion. Or can LeBron James accomplish what would go down as the greatest achievement in a career that has been full of unforgettable moments, winning his second title in Cleveland against the team that has become his nemesis?




Not only will James be playing the most games of his career, but he has played them consecutively - logging all 82 regular-season games for the first time in his career and then playing in 18 playoff games through the first three rounds, continuing his streak of 235 playoff games played without missing one because of injury.

"He's frustrated", Kerr said. But officials went to the replay to see if James was in the restricted area which would make it a block.

"I've been blessed to be available", he said. Thus, the Warriors have three players to rely on at all times.

"Even if you start back to the summertime where I felt like it was just bad for our franchise just to be able to trade away our superstar point guard", James told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. It's a huge play.

Golden State's victory over Houston on Monday night to earn a fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals averaged 14.8 million viewers for the TNT telecast, with the peak audience from 11 to 11:15 p.m. EDT. I played with Shaun so he knows, he knows.

"He thought it was over", Lue said.
