Steve Kerr Could Return To Coach Warriors In NBA Finals

Steve Kerr Could Return To Coach Warriors In NBA Finals

FILE - In this Monday, May 22, 2017 file photo, Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green (23) handles the ball during the first half in Game 4 of the NBA basketball Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs in San Antonio. But, although Cleveland has its own pack of All-Star wonders, one less than Golden State, theres only little said about the explosive Kyrie Irving and the quietly efficient Kevin Love. The Golden State Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday in.

Some predictions see the NBA Finals ending quickly.

Everything he can do to help Golden State get prepared, Kerr is doing " until he feels he might be fine to return to the bench.

What's different since Cleveland rallied from a 3-1 deficit to stun Golden State a year ago in seven games?

Since the Warriors had a better record during the season, they will have home court advantage and the first game will be played on Thursday night in Oakland, California.

Hopefully, Durant subscribes to the following theory: You can't please everyone.

"Conventional wisdom basically suggests that having dynamic rivalries of great teams is really good for a sport, even if it does leave more cities on the outside looking in", Robert Boland, director of the sports administration program at Ohio University, told Reuters.

Cleveland is 12-1 in these playoffs, winning by an average of 13.6 points. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 114.9 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 103.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting.

The Warriors are a powerhouse, but the Cavs are 12-1 in the playoffs and give themselves a shot no matter who else does. We didn't need to come in and say, hey, man, we lost in The Finals, let's get back. Cleveland nearly certainly needs the Kevin Love of the last round to have a chance at the upset. The Cavs haven't been far behind, losing only in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final to Boston.

The task of shutting down Love falls to Draymond Green, who says Love "is playing more confident" but plans to throw him off his game and out of his comfort zone. "He did a great job of that", Durant said.

Caught on camera by TMZ.com when Riley was in Malibu, Calif., on Saturday, Riley was asked if he was rooting for James against the Golden State Warriors. Iguodala has shot the ball poorly in the postseason but the 2015 NBA Finals MVP will be on the floor plenty anyway because of his other contributions. He figures to get at least some time guarding James and spoke of his philosophy toward trying to defend him. We're going to have to be big for us to win this series. Just the combination of offense and defense, the talent that they've been able to amass, it puts them in position where this is a dynasty to me.
