Can the Cleveland Cavaliers really pull this off?

After being very correct about not being afraid of the Raptors, and slightly less correct about not being afraid of the Celtics, here are three reasons why I will still be able to sleep at night despite the Cleveland Cavaliers upcoming match-up with the reigning National Basketball Association superteam, the Golden State Warriors. If the Finals follow the pattern each team set to win their respective conference championships, the third quarter will be pivotal each time. Or do they really? Other Cavs fans you can most likely expect to see are Monica Potter, 46, Machine Gun Kelly, 28, Drew Carey, 60, as they've been spotted supported Cleveland in the past. Either of them can get hot and carry the team at a moment's notice. It can (and will) be easy to get caught up in LeBron's greatness during the Finals. Below are eight reasons the common sentiment that the Warriors will steamroll the Cavs is just that-wrong.

The numbers show Lue's concern is genuine.

Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue went to Kyle Korver less in Game 7 against Boston, but he might need his sharpshooting wing more if the Cavs are going to hang in there against Golden State. The Rockets would have won this one, too.

So, Golden State held a serious team chat and got it together at last.

Aside from the repetition, there is a fear that this series will be one-sided with the defending-champion Warriors significant favorites over LeBron James, who comes in with his least-respected Cavaliers squad. The Cavs won that game, 87-79, to reach The Finals, but Love's status for the National Basketball Association championship series was unclear as of yesterday.

Assad raises prospect of clashes with United States forces in Syria
Israel wants Iran-backed forces removed from areas near its frontier - and from Syria in general. This is the other proof that Israel was in direct link with those terrorists in Syria .


And All-Star point guard Curry - who will be one of Golden State's chief threats having looked sharper and sharper with every game since returning from injury on May 5 - admits James is the man who the Warriors focus much of their attention on. When Jay Williams predicted that the Cavs will beat the Golden State Warriors in seven games, Tatum's reaction was priceless.

James has produced impressive points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks totals over a sustained period like few other playmakers. So you've got to give him a lot of respect. "Making some progress, [but] it's slower than we expected".

This headline probably made you roll your eyes.

"So just have fun, compete, make it tough for him as much as you can, and live with whatever happens". The Warriors might not even be here without Thompson's clutch performance in Game 6 of the West finals against Houston.
