LeBron James played in the National Basketball Association finals with a broken hand

LeBron James played in the National Basketball Association finals with a broken hand

That includes a victory over the Warriors past year in the NBA Finals, when the Cavaliers were in the same 3-0 deficit they face now.

James once again gave a heroic effort, but it was not enough to stem the overwhelming and balanced talent of Golden State, which came into the series looking for a sweep after Cleveland denied them the opportunity a year ago for a ideal playoffs run.

It was an unfortunate result for the Rockets, they lost Chris Paul to injury for the final games of the series. The Warriors own two of them, having swept the Washington Bullets in 1975. LeBron James finished with a team-high 23 points to go with 8 assists and 7 rebounds for the Cavaliers in the losing effort.

'Understanding how important a game one is on the road for our ball club, what would that have done for us, the way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game. Just keep growing as a player.

Who will LeBron James be playing for next season?

Many NBA fans reacted to the announcement and the Cavs' defeat with sympathy for a player who many felt had "carried the team" during the finals.

The 76ers are actually now over the league salary cap at this moment, but for the best player in the league surely they can find a way to make it work financially. The fact the Lakers are armed with enough cap room to credibly chase a pair of max contract players, plus have a roster full of young players to turn into more pieces that are ready to win, make them a formidable challenger.

"This is a journey that's better than the destination", Durant said.

A James slam dunk capped a 14-4 Cavs run to open the second quarter, putting Cleveland ahead 39-38, but Golden State answered with a 11-4 run and stretched the half-time lead to 61-52.

With the Finals MVP award up for grabs, I expect Curry to bounce back from his rough shooting night in Game 3 and lead the Warriors to an easy win to cap off the season. They were a flawless 16-of-16 from the stripe and handed out 25 assists on 39 made baskets.

The third time was more than just the charm. This seems just as unlikely a move considering Golden State's cap space would be next to nothing.

Love 'em or hate 'em, there is no denying them.

"They're going to come out just gunslinging".

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said.

"Going into this season, I don't think anybody could have guessed or predicted the ups and downs and the roller coaster we've been on", Curry said Thursday as the Warriors prepped for the possible clincher.

Windhorst reported that LeBron James punched a blackboard in anger after a debilitating Game 1 loss that the Cleveland Cavaliers let slip away.

The quarter closed with the Warriors up 21.

As these playoffs showed - and he himself said - LeBron James remains in championship mode.

"Our season was kind of the unknown". "You know, I watched that team a lot during the year". I was able to do that. But it would've pained me to do so-not because of any ill will toward Durant, but because I feel for Curry getting overshadowed again.
