NBA Finals: 5 ways the Cavaliers can upset the Warriors

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love was placed in concussion protocol after banging heads with Boston Celtics guard Jayson Tatum in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Coach Tyronn Lue said after the game that Smith though the Cavs were ahead, although Smith said he knew the game was tied and was waiting for a timeout to be called.

Cleveland were heavily unflavoured heading into he series but led by another inspired LeBron James performance they had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of game. Will the Warriors be too much for the Cavaliers once again (Golden State also won in five games in the 2017 Finals)?

The Warriors missed the defensive presence of 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who missed his fifth straight postseason game dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee. During the 2018 playoffs the Cavaliers were 9-3 when everyone other than LeBron combined to score at least 60 points and 3-3 when they scored 59 or fewer.

"I'm going to play aggressively, confidently with that right energy and motivation to help my team win", Curry said. You've always got to look at what you don't have.

"I didn't think we were very good against him last night", Kerr said.

Irish citizens prepare to vote on abortion laws
On Friday, Irish voters will cast their ballots in a referendum which could end the country's ban on abortions . She said her vote would be one for solidarity and compassion, "a vote to say, I don't send you away anymore".

"Golden State is one of the best teams I've ever played".

A visibly frustrated James walked off the press room podium after he was asked multiple times by reporters about what Smith may have been thinking or Smith's "state-of-mind" in the final moments of regulation.

If the Warriors go on their patented third quarter runs like they did against the Rockets then not even the hottest LeBron James would be able to counter that punch. That was expected to translate into a second consecutive championship and put them in the conversation as the greatest team in National Basketball Association history. However, if we have learned anything in the last 15 years, it's that we should never count out LeBron James. "You just get a great set of players on the court".

The NBA Finals MVP trophy is one of the few awards to have eluded Stephen Curry during his illustrious career, but he's not losing any sleep over it.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. "Every time you play in the Finals it's special".
