LeBron James says Jayson Tatum is 'built for stardom'

LeBron James says Jayson Tatum is 'built for stardom'

The Cavaliers, meanwhile, took down the upstart Boston Celtics in a grind-out seven-game series for LeBron's eighth straight trip to the championship round, and Cleveland's fourth consecutive Finals appearance.

Much will be made about the differing styles of the NBA's two best teams.

D'Antoni called two timeouts during that horrendous stretch of basketball and as his team left the floor each time, he focused on harassing the officials, not getting through to his players.

"The championship series begins on Thursday in Oakland, Calif., with the Cleveland Cavaliers representing the Eastern Conference. Pressure both ways because of how big the moment is, and you've got to want it". The Action Network says it'll be the fifth time that James's team has been a double-digit playoff underdog; his team covered the spread in three of the previous four but won only one of those games outright.

The Warriors hoped Iguodala would return to the Houston series, but his progress stalled.

Golden State play more of a team game and happily allow Durant to take jumpers inside the three-point arc.

"This is the last chapter for our team this season", said James.

But, as was the case in Game 6 when the Rockets led by 17, they ran out of gas. It's been roses, it's been thorns in the roses. "There's been everything that you can ask for".

"Those guys are wonderful, two of the best shot-creators in the league", Thompson said of Curry and Durant's performances.

No frills. Just pure, NBA Finals action LIVE on ABS-CBN! "Just like I'll probably bring the best out of him, and we'll see what happens".

The Cavaliers were only +180 underdogs when they upended Golden State in the 2016 Finals. James did not run back down the court, resting up while Green drew a foul at the other end and made one free throw to give the Cavaliers their biggest lead of the game.

"We obviously know what LeBron's capable of", Curry said shortly after the Warriors' Game 7 win at Houston ended. "Kevin wanted to play, to be in a Game 7 situation like this in the Eastern Conference Finals, being an All-Star, being our second-best player, and he just wasn't able to go". No, we've got the right formula.

Warriors: Curry went to the locker room with trainers between the first and second quarters, but returned to the bench with about 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter and soon returned to the game.

Cleveland was only 50-32 this season.

"I was cussing him out", Green said. There is never a Plan B. Good coaches make adjustments when things go wrong and great coaches school their teams so well they don't have to be told when to change things up because they already know what to do. This season was no cakewalk for them, either.

"I guarantee if we start the game out like we did (Saturday) and they jump out to the lead, it's going to be 10 times harder to make it a game", Curry said. "We had a lot of opportunities, a lot of opportunities". We got our bumps throughout the season.
