‘Warriors in 5’ was trending on Twitter before Finals Game 1 started

The wait for the 2018 NBA Finals is over, and just like many predicted in October, the Golden State Warriors are hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 at Oracle Arena.

After months of reports that Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was not in favor of the team trading away its star point guard in Kyrie Irving, James, himself, has now admitted as much. Durant averaged 35.2 points per game in the Finals while James scored 33.6. Injured to start the postseason, Curry showed just how explosive he and the Warriors remain with some big third quarters in the West finals.

Love missed nearly all of Games 6 and 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum in the first quarter on Friday.

The same thing happened in Game 6 in Oakland.

"It's just like whoever they suit up or whoever they decide to be a part of what they've got going on over here, is just a really, really high IQ basketball player and knows how to play the game of basketball", James said.

"Anybody who tells you they're surprised by that, they're lying", Smith said.

Instead of a huge Game 1 win on the road for the Cleveland, the game went into overtime.

Durant struggled with his shot but wound up with 26 points on 8-for-22 shooting and nine rebounds. "However, the pain accompanying the bone bruise persists, as does inflammation of the nerve surrounding his left knee". Durant is incredible, but his isolation sets have had a tendency to drag down Golden State's offense at times. The city of Cleveland had won its first major championship since 1964. James' first quarter: 4 for 4 with a 3-pointer, 12 points, three assists, a steal and a turnover. Warriors coach Steve Kerr went with Looney against Houston but could go a number of ways in this series. Home run king Barry Bonds was in attendance.

There's plenty more to talk about going in, but we narrowed it to five storylines to follow for the season's final series. The mind is a powerful thing, so it is good to go through hard situations, because once you get out of it, you learn from it. I know that Draymond gets a ton of love as a perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate but he gives up a lot of size to Thompson in the post.
