The Los Angeles Lakers need to sign LeBron James - No matter what

NBA news: Golden State Warriors use second half surge to smother Houston Rockets and head to NBA Finals

Kevin Durant doesn't think he should be compared to LeBron James.

It's no secret that the Warriors are overwhelming favorite over the Cavaliers in the upcoming NBA Finals. But, tweets from players, fans and other notables were flying fast and furious as numerous calls went against the Rockets including a couple several blatant no-calls that seemed to turn the tide for the Warriors.

For the fourth year in a row, the Golden State Warriors will play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

Oddsmakers are in agreement, and have made the Cavaliers a 12-point underdog for Game 1 on Thursday night - the largest point spread for a Finals-opening game since peach baskets. Love left Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals after colliding with Jayson Tatum and didn't play in Cleveland's Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics.

Golden State has won two of their three meetings back in 2015 and 2017, while Cleveland pulled one back in 2016 with their historic comeback from down 1-3 to claim the city's first-ever National Basketball Association championship. "It's a point where, like I always say, it's a full 48-minute game", he said. They have less depth than years past, and James has to create everything on offense.

Thanks to a stunning series by LeBron James, however, they managed to survive that scare.

"Harden opened the game 4 of 5 from the floor but finished 12 of 29 for thegame". Maybe more than the style of play is who is executing it and the Rockets just didn't have the shooters the Warriors do. "We've been through a lot with this team, and believe it or not, it's not all success with the Warriors".

"I'm just trying to play in a way that will help us win a championship".

However, in this series when every possession will be magnified, Lue will count on four players who have been around since the Cavs first met the Warriors in the 2015 Finals.

The Golden State Warriors pose with their trophy after defeating the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals Monday in Houston. Thompson, who missed time with a severe calf injury, wasn't a factor until Lue started him in Game 7 of the in series.

The Warriors swept their two regular-season meetings with the Cavaliers, winning by seven at home on Christmas Day (without Curry) and prevailing by 10 in Cleveland about three weeks later. Sorry for you guys that don't know much about Cedar Point, but it's been a roller coaster.
