Kerr not well yet, but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1

But in my book, that's gobbledygook, period.

The turnover came with about five minutes left to go in the game while the Warriors held a one-point lead.

The Warriors and Durant were already independently great.

Simply, the antidote to Cleveland's LeBron James has yet to be discovered.

"I only play blackjack in Vegas anyway, so it doesn't matter", James said of the Las Vegas sportsbooks doubting the Cavs' chances. "We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do". I think we will use it as fuel, we will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it?

It's as potent a fuel as can be. Durant signed a two-year, $54.3 million contract with the Warriors last offseason.

Fight back was their instant fuel. Last year, the Cavs became the first team in league history to rally from a 3-1 series deficit to win the Finals.

"We're not going to use that as motivation", Lue said.

"This is a high powered team.it's going to be very challenging not only on me mentally but on our ballcub and on our franchise".

"I told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies", Kerr joked.

He said that if he's unable to return for Game 1, he expects that a final decision on his status would be made shortly after. He's one of the most risky guys we have in the world already. He still put up 24.5 points per game on 49 percent shooting from the field including a dominant 30 point effort in Game 4 in Salt Lake City.

When the Cavs and Warriors tip off on Thursday, the level of familiarity will be easy to see.

AP quoted Love as saying, "Want the Warriors?" And they've added an unbelievable player in Kevin Durant this year. This series is a rubber match between the Cavs and Dubs as they have split the previous two Finals matchups.

For the record the two teams split their regular season meetings, with Cleveland winning 109-108 on Christmas Day and the Warriors winning at home, 126-91.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says it's unlikely he returns to roaming the sideline in time for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. A year ago the Warriors were record-setting again, but it was the unbelievable Cavs who came back from a 3-1 Finals deficit to win Cleveland's first title since the 1964 Browns (yes, the Browns have won quite a few titles, just not lately). The same can be said for Klay Thompson and Durant. I started to slash more and move more without the ball, shoot more standstill 3s and figure out ways I could be more productive than just having the ball in isolation. Sports Interaction's basketball odds have Golden State as the favourite to win it all for the second time in three seasons.

In this trilogy, 2015 champion Golden State has revenge as fuel against 2016 tormentor Cleveland, whose motivation is validation of coronation.
