Kevin Durant's easy dunk.

The move would permit the Warriors to keep their entire core together with two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry potentially signing one of the first five-year contracts created by the new collective bargaining agreement. I guess the nation is excited. Ask the Celtics. Rarely have we seen a team come into the Boston Garden and destroy a team in ways the Cavs did in games 1 and 2 and 5. Hopefully there will be no injuries or amusing business and we can just have the two best teams in the National Basketball Association go at each other to see who is the best. They have so many ways they can beat you, but the offense will go as Curry and Durant go. But, hopefully, after a NBA Playoffs full of blowouts, the Finals provides a close, thrilling matchup. The lapses were mostly glossed over as the Cavs streaked through the Eastern Conference playoffs.

"We know we're capable of playing a lot better".

So finally, some drama. "That led to us not being able to set our defense and get out and play in transition, play fast like we wanted to".

"We had a pretty - good idea that it was gonna be Cleveland". But this year, Curry said, "Knowin' that it's gonna be against Cleveland, it's gonna be tough". And for the third straight year, the Cleveland Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors. Now, they want to play on the same team.

In the National Football League, the Cleveland Browns took on the Detroit Lions three straight times from 1952-54. He said in a recent interview he was talking to his sons about it, "and [I said] it's just one of those things, especially in the's like 'The Lion King.' It's just the circle of life". Perhaps you heard. It was in all the papers.

The Warriors took a little time getting accustomed to each other, worked through some injuries and posted another 67-win season. By the time Game 7 rolled around, they were on their heels and the Cavs were in their heads.

"They constantly break records - last year being 73-9 [a regular season record]; this year starting the playoffs 13-0". The Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Golden State Warriors in a highly anticipated NBA Finals rubber match.

As a team, the Cavs got to the line 25 times, making 19 shots for a 76 percent mark. LeBron's Miami teams went 1-1 vs. the savvy Spurs in Finals.

While it wasn't completely a two-man show for the Warriors, Durant and Curry were the undoubted stars as Golden State's only players to score double figures at Oracle Arena. They shoot with incredible accuracy.

But in the end, Thompson's defense was so good, it overshadowed his bad shooting. Then Durant joined them. I think Golden State comes out guns blazing. In the past? Maybe.

Cleveland went just 23-23 after January 10 and was ranked in the bottom third statistically on defense all season. Golden State has only turned those 12 giveaways into 10 points, however.

The Warriors were a fantastic team.

NBA Finals prediction: Golden State in a 4-0 sweep.
