Coach Steve Kerr possible to return in NBA Finals, sources say

Everyone has their own Warriors Cavaliers Predictions for 2017, but the top NBA basketball video game simulation has just crunched the numbers. Never in National Basketball Association history has the same two teams met in the Finals for three straight seasons.

Whenever a team has the best player on the floor, they always have a good chance in the series. Nor could we have foreseen the Warriors heading back for their third straight Finals appearance. LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will pose the biggest threat to the Warriors as they've seen since last year's championship series. Teammates also boasting at least all-star production, based on regular-season performance (PER of 20 or higher), include Kyrie Irving (23.0) and Kevin Love (21.1).

Fans are hoping that this series will make up for what has been a lackluster playoffs so far. His overall numbers in the seven-game set weren't exactly bad, but his 22.6 points on 40.3 percent shooting, 4.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game were a far cry from what National Basketball Association fans had become accustomed to seeing. The Cleveland Cavaliers face the Golden State Warriors for the third consecutive NBA Finals. But, with the way the Big Three is playing leading into Thursday night, they may just have enough to win their second championship in as many years. His play in the first rounds suggests it should be his best finals yet. The Warriors were a pretty consistent under team (53 of 94 games overall) most of the season, but oddsmakers have adapted and the total has gone over in the Warriors' last five games. Golden State won the 2015 series, 4-2, and Cleveland won the 2016 series, 4-3.

"Like trying to turn the antenna, because that's all we had back then, right?" he said Wednesday in the chaos of NBA Finals Media Day at Oracle Arena. "Defensively, it's tough to match what he does", he added.

He started this season in Sacramento before getting waived in February and joining the Warriors for the stretch run. Warriors guard Stephen Curry finished the game with 28 point, 10 assists and six rebounds. That became even more apparent during the postseason, especially in the Eastern Conference Finals where Love averaged over three points more than he did in the regular season, and more than six points more than at any other time since donning the wine and gold. The favorite in the opener of the NBA Finals has covered 11 of the past 12 years.

"If Cleveland comes out of the east, I want to destroy Cleveland", said Green. "So as long as I perform at this stage now and play my hardest, that's all I can ask for".

The Warriors have the best start in National Basketball Association playoff history at 12-0. Cleveland shut down Indiana's Paul George, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan and Boston's Isaiah Thomas before he went down with a hip injury on the way to a 12-1 postseason record.

So what do we have to look forward to?

The first quarter seemed worthy of the lofty status both teams had earned. This is not breaking news, but the Warriors have a plethora of offensive weapons-although I actually think the Cavs can be just as explosive. "Obviously, if you're gonna give us a dunk in transition, we're gonna take the dunk".

Does LeBron or Curry have more to lose in this heavyweight matchup?

"What happened in the past in my mind doesn't really count now unless we go out and finish the deal", he said. Expect the two-time MVP to return to form and produce the best Finals of his career.

The Cavs were able to weather the storm and force a deciding Game 7, and snapped a 52-year professional sports championship drought for the city of Cleveland.
