Draymond Green not bored by another Cavs-Dubs Finals matchup

"And once I got used to it, it's like, 'All right, let's roll with it". "We don't go into any series saying we're only going to play four games, we can't approach a series like that, like, 'Yeah, we're going to play four.' You approach it with a mindset of, 'Of course we'd love to sweep them but you have to take that game by game'".

The Cleveland Cavaliers will meet the Golden State Warriors for the third year in a row in the National Basketball Association finals on June 1 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. No matter what anyone might think about Thomas' recent playoff performance, his lack of size or his long-term fit on this Celtics team, there's simply no denying that he was an integral part of Boston's success this past season.

Draymond Green speaks to members of the press during a Golden State Warriors practice in Oakland, California on May 26, 2017. They just manhandled the San Antonio Spurs who's coach is one of the greatest coaches in National Basketball Association history. "Like, they hit the post, Golden State runs splits and all that stuff but these guys are running all kinds of (stuff)".

So should the Warriors hammer the Cavs with their superior firepower and depth and defense, while it may satisfy you, it will only serve to mark a disappointing end to what has been a disappointing postseason. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving combined for 57 points and 11 made three pointers. This team is just not fair.

James elected not to talk about the Warriors following the game, choosing instead to celebrate a third straight conference title in Cleveland and his seventh consecutive Finals trip.

Want to show up your friend? In 2015, the Warriors sealed their championship win in the sixth game of the seven-game series, beating the Cavs 105-97 in the final game. The answer is 2010.

- LeBron James and the defending-champion Cleveland Cavaliers are headed back to the NBA Finals.




Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives to the basket against Boston Celtics center Al Horford (42) in the first quarter at TD Garden.

The Cavaliers destroyed the Celtics by 13 and 44 points in games one and two in Boston. The Cavs fell 111-108 but rebounded with two straight blowout victories to advance. If this is the series everybody thinks it ought to be, then there ought to be so much of it that everyone should feel like they just binge-Thanksgivinged.

Irving, who shook off a Game 4 twisted ankle, was 9 of 15 from the floor, 4 of 8 from 3-point range.

All that's left to sort out is how the NBA's most unstoppable and cerebral player, flanked by two stars and all the spacing he could ever need, will fare against a team structured to be unguardable.

The Isaiah Thomas injury was a crushing blow to the Celtics, but they did not have much chance either way.

There's a four-headed, shot-making, scoreboard-breaking monster out West awaiting LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Cavs, the reigning champions, made history during the 2016 NBA Finals by rallying back from a 3-1 deficit to capture a franchise-first title. Previous year he carried his team back from the brink as the Cavs became the first team to rally from a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven NBA Finals and win the title. "I always like to stay even-keeled and just play the game the right way".

"Whatever they have to do to continue to play at - not just a normal level - at an MVP level, that's what I've been on the doctors about", he said.
