Four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James has carried the Cavs on his back at times, averaging 34.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 9.0 assists in 11 play-off games for the Cavaliers, who edged in in a seven-game first round before sweeping Eastern conference top seed Toronto.
Sure, the road was winding but the National Basketball Association season has ended up right where we expected at the beginning of the year-Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics in the East and Golden State Warriors vs. Houston Rockets in the West. The Cavs are coming off a four game sweep of the Toronto Raptors, defeating the "We the North" squad for the third straight season in the playoffs. The series between the Rockets and Warriors begins Monday night.
A narrative has emerged that Houston are also the hungrier team, with Harden and Paul having yet to win a title while several of the Warriors' key players have two to their name. It's two teams that were written off plenty of times this season, yet here they are again.
"With his (James) supporting cast finally deciding to show up". The Cavs, who seem to have scrubbed off a shaky start to the postseason, look to fend off Celts - and compete in their fourth straight NBA Finals. This series will mark the first time he's ever played in the conference finals. "It's a nice feeling to have and to go into a series with". The NBA's two best teams will have a chance to duke it out finally to figure out who will represent the West in the NBA Finals.
Ward-Henninger, Malone and Barnewall noted Houston's vast improvement this season but the Warriors, they chorused, are the better team, and they come in as healthy and energetic as they've been all season, "so as much as I'd like the Rockets to give them a real challenge, I'm just not sure that's how it will play out".
The Rockets and Warriors have both cruised through the playoffs at a rapid rate, knocking off their opponents in decisive fashion. Can the undermanned Celtics keep their Cinderella run going against the mighty LeBron James? Isaiah Thomas went from Boston to Cleveland in that deal; his season is over because he's long moved on from the Cavs. Golden State beat No. 7 San Antonio 4-1 and No. 6 New Orleans 4-1.
