Rockets remain optimistic after season-ending loss to Warriors

Kevin Durant Le Bron James

"Just going against the Warriors in the last three years in the Finals, I kind of figured or thought that they could get it done", he said. "Just their championship DNA". Injured to start the postseason, Curry showed just how explosive he and the Warriors remain with some big third quarters in the West finals. Draymond Green rolled his ankle in the second half of Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, but he'll put in shifts against James as well.

Outside of James, these Cavs are drastically different than the team the Warriors played in last year's NBA Finals. Anything less than that, and he'd have a lot more time for those barbecues with his kids. Well, the Cavs are even more anxious about what the Warriors can do to them on the fast break and with secondary offense against a defense that hasn't yet gotten into proper position. "He doesn't walk around like that".

"So it will be interesting to see how competitive LeBron James can make this Finals, but any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset, to me". As a basketball fan, to turn on the TV last night and watch the game and there were points in the game where you didn't know how it was going to play out and they found a way to get it done, so shout-out to him. "He's a really great leader".

Right now, there's no evidence that Iguodala could play in the Finals, so the presumption - at this juncture - should be that Iguodala doesn't play in the Finals.

James later said that until teams can prove capable of dethroning the Cavaliers and Warriors in their respective conferences, there shouldn't be gripes about a lack of parity.

But even as he ages, he still is a valuable cog to what the Houston Rockets do and should be offered a one to two year deal roughly the game as what he made this season. They made it look easy at times, too. "But also because of what he did offensively", Kerr said.

"I'll pick his brain about some things. some tendencies of LeBron, the fact of the switches or small things like that to help me out", Looney said.

But in minor move, I think the Houston Rockets should give Luc Mbah a Moute another go with this team.

"His work ethic. He works on his game every day".

Had the Warriors stayed their course more consistently, they would had to play fewer games against Houston.

With Kevin Durant dominating inside, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson as 3-point sharpshooters and Draymond Green inside contributing rebounds and assists, the Warriors have been almost as formidable as they were in last year's title run. They have a former Finals MVP coming off their bench, or rather they will when Andre Iguodala returns from the bone bruise that has kept him sidelined of late.

Does being an underdog make a difference for the Cavs?

Those words were offered in the midst of the Warriors' record-setting 73-win regular season. "I guess that's the position you want to be in".

Kevon Looney vs. Tristan Thompson. Treatment and workouts on Wednesday. Game 1 is Thursday night at Oracle Arena.

"I'm always going to stick behind my guys", Lue said.
