Warriors reach 4th straight NBA Finals

The odds are longer than a Stephen Curry 3-pointer, Kevin Durant's wingspan or Draymond Green's catalog of technical fouls. And we saw in the Western Conference finals how the Warriors can putz around: The lack of ball movement that Steve Kerr bemoaned in Game 4, the inability to close in Game 5.

Hamilton coached James Jones when the two were at the University of Miami, and he coached Okaro White when he played at FSU.

The Warriors are about to win their second straight National Basketball Association championship and their third in the last four seasons - all of them coming at the expense of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who won't have enough even if LeBron James plays to the absolute utmost of his capabilities. It will be entertaining to watch just how much one guy can do in LeBron James, but this is a total mismatch. The win secures a Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers matchup in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive season. In Game 1, they're giving 12 points, tied for the biggest spread in a NBA Finals game since 1991, per ESPN Stats & Information. So essentially, James has played 12.5 more Game 7s against the Boston Celtics.

"That's the conversation I had with T-Lue", Green said.

No, they didn't put together a snazzy examination of the Xs and Os of the series, or create an intricate film breakdown of what to expect in the series - and surely that's all still to come - but they did something even better. Why do we insult and belittle either LeBron's or Jordan's accomplishments just because we consider their opposite the greatest of all-time?

Second exit poll projects large victory for Yes side in Abortion Referendum
Religious conservatives pressed for a constitutional amendment to strictly ban abortion, which was passed by referendum in 1983. The effective prohibition on abortion in Ireland was partially lifted in 2013 for cases when a mother's life was in danger.

Bill Reiter: LeBron James is very, very, very good. Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Lonzo Ball cannot only learn about the nuances of LeBron's game but they will learn something that has been missing from the team: winning.

James Harden posted 32 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals forthe Rockets, who again were without guard Chris Paul (right hamstring strain). But when he dusted him off and played him Monday, Curry almost brought him to his knees on D, and Houston got outscored by 12 points - keep in mind that the final margin was nine - in Anderson's 8 minutes on the court. Like I said above, both teams will likely be content winning games at home for the early part of the series.

For the game, the Rockets were a horrendous 7-for-44 (15.9 percent) from beyond the arc.

Cleveland finished in fourth place in the East during a tumultuous season of roster upheaval, and was 29th all year on defense.
