NBA Finals 2018: Cavs vs. Warriors Game 1 Updates

  • Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors goes up against Trevor Ariza and PJ Tucker of the Houston Rockets

The four-time NBA MVP has made eight consecutive NBA Finals, dating back to his days with the Miami Heat. A real question being asked about this series is if Cleveland even has a realistic chance to win barring some unprecedented and sad injury circumstances for the Warriors.

That's certainly what the National Basketball Association and its broadcast partners are hoping as the Goliath State Warriors and Cleveland LeBrons swipe right for a fourth consecutive best-of-seven-night stand. Check out Rihanna, 30, Usher, 39, and more stars who will be tuning into Game 1 to support this year's Finals underdogs!

POWER FORWARD: Draymond Green v Kevin Love or Jeff Green. A big three consisting of James, Paul and James Harden could be enough to dethrone Golden State in the Western Conference. Randall's message recently passed one million retweets while Thomas's has more than 250,000. Jordan Bell got 16 minutes off the bench in Game 7, but I can picture a world in which the Cavaliers dominate the boards to the point where the Warriors need play him more or even turn to Zaza Pachulia or JaVale McGee. "So we're going to tell the same stories about James and [Kevin] Durant and [Stephen] Curry that some may just be hearing for the first times and others may be sick of hearing". But the Warriors have proved themselves resilient and mentally tough in the face of absences. The Cavaliers, though, did spoil the Warriors' record-setting 73-win season by becoming the first team in Finals history to rally from a 3-1 series hole to win the title. We've been the hunted for the last few years. "I guess that's the position you want to be in".

James never counted out Golden State.


The NBA Playoffs promised so much this season and, while they did deliver jaw-dropping action and intense matchups, we're ultimately left with the same Finals matchup of the past four years. Overconfidence will be the biggest challenge with so many people giving Cleveland no shot. "I think teams are excited to play us and they come out on fire defensively and it takes a lot out of them".

James said that he and Iguodala were almost teammates but he was picked by Philadelphia 9th in the 2004 NBA Draft one spot before Cleveland would have taken him.

That might be the only drama ahead.
