Why the Cleveland Cavaliers will win the NBA Finals

I just know he's just built for stardom.

Green was magnificent in the Cavs' 87-79 win over the Celtics in Game 7 of the conference finals on Sunday. They were able to take care of the first part - and did it basically without Love, with former Celtics player Jeff Green filling in and having a strong game.

The moment rarely looked too big for the 20-year-old Tatum throughout his rookie year, and he elevated his game in the playoffs, averaging 18.2 points per contest during the postseason.

Jayson Tatum threw down an impressive dunk on LeBron James in the Boston Celtics' series finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I tried to squeeze the orange until there was no more juice", James told reporters after logging 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists while playing all 48 minutes of the series finale.

The Warriors swept the two regular-season meetings with the Cavaliers, winning by seven at home on Christmas Day (without Curry) and prevailing by 10 in Cleveland about three weeks later.

"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", Lue said.

Najib also expressed his disappointment at Dr Mahathir who he claimed had failed to see the benefits beyond ticket sales. Singapore did not have an immediate reaction to Wednesday's announcement on the rail project.

The Cavs didn't exactly miss Love in his absence against Boston.

The Celtics have seen him do it, after he averaged 33.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 8.4 assists to eliminate them in the East finals for the second straight year.

Added Terry Rozier, who has often found himself outmanned in a switching situation that left him on James: "We know LeBron is different than a lot of other guys, but we've got to get the job done".

James leads the Cavs with 34.0 points per game on 54.2 percent shooting this postseason.

They will play the victor of Monday night's game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets in the NBA Finals, which start on Thursday.

For example, Pluto says the Houston Rockets were up 3-2 over Golden State in the Western Conference Finals.

His inability to make shots in Game 7 was as much a problem as Brown going 3-12 from three-point range, Marcus Smart going 1-10 from the field, Marcus Morris going 5-14 from the field or Al Horford's struggles when being double-teamed in the post. The only thing he can do to exceed it is go ahead and win another championship against the Warriors or Rockets in a couple weeks.
