Jayson Tatum doesn't seem to think Cavs have chance against Warriors

The NBA's best player is facing the NBA's best team and it's not a fair fight.

Still, Lue can't expect a core of Green, Thompson and Smith to take down the Warriors, no matter how well James and Love play. Was the Oracle Arena advantage backed up by statistics illustrating that the Warriors played better at home?

He's been playing unbelievable over the whole regular season and especially in these playoffs to will his team back here.

Four is enough - or maybe too much.

The Miami Heat is one of eight teams that made the list. That will continue for this series. Missing 3-point shots would be disastrous - the Rockets missed 27 straight 3-pointers in Game 7 - because the Warriors will turn the long rebounds into fast breaks. Durant has been even better in the NBA Finals, with his 32.9 points per game ranking last year's finals MVP behind only Rick Barry (36.3) and Jordan (33.6) among players who have appeared in at least 10 games.

"It will be interesting to see how competitive LeBron James can make this Finals, but any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset to me", Van Gundy said. "Now I have got to get into the postseason'". The Cavs held Boston under 100 points in four of the final five games of the East finals.

Still, Pluto says there's one guy who matters most - LeBron James. His defense has been fantastic, and that's where he could have the biggest impact in the Finals. However, if he is able to return and be effective, then this series will over quite quickly.

But now, Green can take some of that stress off of James.

James never counted out Golden State. For the most part, there's been good reason. I know that Draymond gets a ton of love as a perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate but he gives up a lot of size to Thompson in the post. Their head coach is the one who kind of puts it all together, makes it all flow. With a nearly seven-foot frame, exceptional athleticism, and a sweet shooting touch, he can score from anywhere on the court almost at will. "So we're going to tell the same stories about James and [Kevin] Durant and [Stephen] Curry that some may just be hearing for the first times and others may be sick of hearing".

Golden State might feel it, but it's not visible. Want to go to The NBA Finals and help a great cause? But Igoudala is 34, and his body is breaking down. For all of James' supernatural, otherworldly ability to dominate as a 33-year-old in his 15th National Basketball Association season, he'll need more help than he received in the Eastern Conference finals.

Iguodala, a member of the United States 2012 Olympic gold medal team, is in his 14th National Basketball Association season and fifth with the Warriors, with career averages of 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists a game.
