The NBA Finals Are Set: It’s Warriors vs. Cavs, Again
With last night’s win over the Boston Celtics, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made it to the NBA Finals once again, joining their west coast rivals, the Golden State Warriors. Between the two teams, there’s only been 1 loss so far, that’s impressive – and dominating. The Cavs were lead by LeBron James who scored 35 points, Kyrie Irving added 24 points and Kevin Love put up 15 of his own to push past the Eastern Conference champs in only 5 games.
Oh, and LeBron has now become the all-time playoff scoring leader, surpassing legends like Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
1. LeBron James – 5995
2. Michael Jordan – 5987
3. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – 5762
Here’s the moment he did it:
Also, this is the first time in history that the same two teams our meeting in the finals for three consecutive years. The Warriors won in 2015, The Cavaliers won in 2016, but who’s going to take it in 2017? It’s shaping up to be an eventful finals, but seriously, did we really need to play the games this year to watch the same teams in the finals again?
Last year, it took a miracle for the Cavaliers to come back from a 3-game deficit to win the championship. Now, the Warriors have an added another weapon in former MVP, Kevin Durant. Whatever the outcome, we’re sure in for a treat!
