NBA Odds: Oddsmakers Not (Yet) Buying LeBron James-Celtics Speculation

07 June, 2018, 13:31 | Author: Greg Lawrence
  • James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel- and much more lopsided- minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days

Curry struck for an National Basketball Association record nine 3-pointers in game two but comes to Cleveland knowing the fight is far from done. 11 points, five rebounds and six assists on just 18.8% shooting from the field is a subpar performance by the two-time MVP's standard, but it's ok when you have the world's greatest scorer as a teammates.

"We all feel that we can still win this series, and that we can play a lot better", said Cavaliers guard George Hill. The standards have transformed, and they know this has to be the time for them to compete with the best teams in the league.

Warriors star Kevin Durant is ready for craziness.

"Andre helps us in every regard", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

Players have gone off glass before plenty of times - All-Star Games, regular-season games and even normal playoff games.

"I can't say I was sure of anything at that point", Smith said.

The Warriors have yet to comment on the controversy or James' comments, but after skipping the ceremony last year it's assumed that James is right and they'd skip it again this year as well. We're all looking forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration and celebrate Americans for their achievement. In fairness to Stephen A., he simply said James would "have a conversation with Boston", while listing him among the suitors. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police.

The matches between David Goffin and Gael Monfils , and Lucas Pouille and Karen Khachanov , were suspended due to poor weather. You know, for me, not having so many matches in the last period, this is great. "I knew I had to take risks", Cecchinato said.

Lue wants more physical toughness and better communication on the defensive side, especially guarding Curry. The last sweep in the Finals was San Antonio over Cleveland in 2007 in James' debut trip to the championship round.

"You just couldn't - you could never relax. That's my obligation. I need to continue to do that, which I will". "You can't have mistakes".

As a result of four straight Finals matchups, both teams have little left to hide from one another. We're on our home floor. "And if we can do that, guys can look in the mirror and live with themselves".

It's somewhat fascinating to see that response, and to see an awareness of how these press conferences have turned into a much larger element of the NBA Finals than they've been historically (a subject Bryan Curtis explored recently at The Ringer).

"We've been here before, and that's the biggest thing".

"I was drunk as hell y'all i'm sorry, I wanna say sorry to the fans and Lebron, that henny go insane and i thought hennything was possible", said JR smith to reporters on Saturday. "If we don't, then don't come to practice tomorrow".

Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin believes the Philadephia 76ers have a strong change to lure LeBron James in next month's free agency.
