Cavs Back to Finals

Sebastien Bourdais was in one of the best race cars he'd ever had, so fast that most of his competitors thought he would win the pole for the Indianapolis 500.

In 1921 and '22, the New York Giants beat the New York Yankees in the World Series, with the Yankees winning in '23. And the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens faced off in three consecutive Stanley Cup finals from 1954 to 1956 as Detroit won the first two and Montreal captured the third. Brown has taken over, leading the squad to 10 straight wins and an appearance in the National Basketball Association finals.

While at practice on Saturday before Golden State and Cleveland face off in the Finals, Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue told reporters about why he has owed Warriors interim head coach Mike Brown $100 since his rookie year as an National Basketball Association player. Both of the NBA Conference Finals were played between top two seeded teams, and only the Utah Jazz managed to progress as a lower seed in the entire 2017 NBA Playoffs, beating the LA Clippers in seven games in a first round match-up between two teams that had the same regular season record. From day one he's been one to learn and open to anything to help him become better and our team get to where we want it to be. If not for Leonard's injury it would have probably been less, but it's still an impressive number, especially considering the fact that the usual blowout customers such as the Nets or the Lakers have not been around. "'You owe me $100.' I try to pay, he won't take it". They did a great job. We'll go from there.

The Warriors and Cavaliers face off next week in the NBA Finals for the third straight time.

"The special ones figure it out, and I'm just eternally grateful to have a guy like that as well as K-Love, Tristan, J.R., all my teammates, but when you look at how this team is run and who are the driving forces behind it, it has to be myself and Bron", Irving said. "I mean, the goals that they set, they were definitely challenging for us, and it made the league turn for a little bit, just 1 versus 2, 2, 1, who was going to get first place and who was actually ready for the playoffs".

Jordan's six National Basketball Association titles are twice as many as James's three - two of them won with the Miami Heat before he returned to Cleveland with the avowed aim of bringing a championship to his home state of Ohio. The Cavs took two straight wins after that, with Thompson totaling just 13 points and 12 boards in the wins.

The Cavs" "Big Three' were strongly backed by their reserves.

Currently, the Warriors are favored in Las Vegas Odds at -7.0 for Game One.

Adding to the intrigue, Mike Brown, twice fired as Cavs coach, will be the Warriors' bench boss if Steve Kerr's ailing back prevents him from being on the sideline.

Love comes into the Finals this year playing at a much higher level than that, having averaged 22.6 points, 12.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks per game in the Cavs' Eastern Conference finals win over the Boston Celtics.

After the team returned from Boston in the wee hours Friday morning, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue didn't go to bed and immediately began working on a game plan to stifle Golden State's powerful, multi-faceted offense. "It's a special night tonight". "We want to go take back a championship, that's just the nature of a competitor and I think that's the mindset of everyone in this organization to go take back what they took from us".

"(It's about) locking in and being a part of something special. "We knew they'd be right there". "It's kind of in our minds that that's who we were going to see".
