NBA champion won’t be going to White House

Durant had 43 points, seven assists and 13 rebounds as the Golden State Warriors moved within one win of repeating as National Basketball Association champions with a 110-102 win.

The Cavaliers were the most recent victims of an NBA Finals sweep, being blanked by San Antonio in 2007 in the first finals trip for LeBron James, now playing in an eighth consecutive finals and ninth overall. Draymond Green, Golden State's emotional leader, absorbed three early fouls, got hit with a technical and did not have a fantastic game.

All of these events were downright ideal for the Cleveland Cavaliers: Stephen Curry's shooting game was terrible for most of the night, Klay Thompson's wasn't much better, the Cavs led by as many as 13 in the first half and some non-producers from the first two games of these NBA Finals were starting to finally give LeBron James the contributions he's craved. He has one assist in the Boston and Golden State series combined.

Since losing their first game of the 2018 playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the Cavaliers have won eight games in a row on their home court.

Despite the offensive fireworks, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it was an improved defensive effort that led to the win. We're all looking forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration and celebrate Americans for their achievement.

All-Star Kevin Love said Tuesday the Cavaliers are focusing on communication on defense to spark their offense and get more punch to stand up to the Warriors.

They speculate if this is the film to bring Transformers fans back to the franchise. I play a character named Charlie Watson, who is a mechanic.

James said that he was still digesting the news of Trump's disinviting of the Eagles but that he was not surprised by the news. Are we in for a repeat of 2017, when the Cavaliers came home down 0-2 to the Warriors, got 39 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists from LeBron James, and still lost to go down in an insurmountable 0-3 hole?

"It's typical of him".

"We all feel that we can still win this series, and that we can play a lot better", said Cavaliers guard George Hill. "You know, we know that come Wednesday we're going to have to be better".

Almost a year later, not much has changed when it's come to the 4-time MVP's stance on the United State's 45th president.

No one knows what LeBron's future holds, and how this Finals pans out will likely play a huge role in his decision.

Curry is referencing last year's controversy when the Warriors declined an invitation the White House. "I mean, how much more picking up of teammates do you want me to do?"
