Warriors set to make their claim as NBA's best ever

View 9       Items

A series that appeared to be headed for a quick conclusion is California bound for Game 5 on Monday night.

After the Golden State Warriors lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, Draymond Green called two people from the parking lot as soon as he left Oracle Arena.

Green said he expects the Cavaliers to throw everything at the Warriors.

The only chance the Cavs have to even win a game, is if LeBron James and Kyrie Irving take over with their driving and finishing. The same could be said for this year, when despite having three healthy All-Stars in the starting lineup, the Cavaliers simply aren't good enough to beat one of the greatest teams ever assembled.

"I've been working on that shot my whole life", said Durant, who has averaged 34 points through the first three games of the Finals.

"It's probably the most, most firepower I've played in my career". "He's been an unbelievable player in this league for a long time, and I think he senses this is his moment, his team".

LeBron James had stuffed another playoff game full of his usual brilliance. They had the opportunity to go get two of us, and they did that in me and Bosh, and then we were able to finagle a way to get Mike Miller because some of us took pay cuts, and got some other guys.




As this best-of-seven series moves to Game Four, scheduled for Friday night (tomorrow, Singapore time) in Cleveland, the only question left seems to be whether the Warriors can become the first team in National Basketball Association history to finish the play-offs with a 16-0 record. I don't contribute as losing this game because we got exhausted.

Conversely, Irving missed a step-back three-pointer that would have put the Cavaliers in front of the Warriors by two points with 26 seconds remaining. "I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was exhausted, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could".

Even if James, Love and Irving all find a way to click in Game 4, they'll still have to keep up with maybe the greatest offense the league has ever seen. By the time the game was over the Warriors had taken the victory away with an 118-113 win after #Kevin Durant took over the end of the ballgame.

Friday night in Cleveland (9 p.m. ET, ABC) both teams will have an unprecedented goal in mind.

Klay Thompson scored 16 of his 30 points in the first quarter and was 6-for-11 from 3-point range.

"We have to come out with an unbelievable mindset, unbelievable focus like we have and limit some of the things they're comfortable at".
