LeBron James and Kyrie Irving comment on Warriors trash talk

Stress test High-wire Cavaliers still alive in NBA Finals LeBron James and Kyrie Irving comment on Warriors trash talk

A year after the Cleveland Cavilers shocked the sports world by winning the NBA Finals after trailing by a 3-1 margin, the Warriors won their second NBA championship in three years after defeating the Cavs 129-120 on Monday. "So I didn't think that was that sharp", Green said on the eve of Monday's Game 5. "If it's talking trash or knocking guys on the floor, whatever you got to do, you got to do it". I mean, they're coming right after us, so we have to go after them.

When it matters most, Kyrie locks in and consistently plays like the player we all know he can be when he's at the top of his game.

"The magnitude of the games, especially the last game, it hit me in a very deep place", said Irving, who made 15 of 27 shots from the floor and drained seven 3-pointers - tied for second most in a Finals game.

On the contrary. There've been plenty of immortal moments in the third consecutive Finals featuring the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James' ridonkulous Game 4 off-the-backboard pass to himself, Draymond Green's epic Cleveland dis, and, of course, Kevin Durant's Game 3 dagger. If you have $133,000 sitting around in the bank account and can freely spend it on some Warriors tickets, who among us can judge? They can definitely repeat it, so we got to do the job to stop them and make them uncomfortable. "We do. We're competing to win a championship, and we have everything to lose".

"We know that champions don't die".

While much of the attention in the "three-match" has been on Durant and Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, it was Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving who was the difference-maker last season, drilling a tiebreaking 3-pointer in the final minute.

The Golden State Warriors have been a favorite for most of the playoffs series, and little has changed with the Finals. Knocking down open shots will be their key to success as we've seen through all four games that the Cavs will have plenty of open shots that they just need to hit, simple as that. And they were desperate and they outplayed us. "When he's getting 39 points off 2s, you can live with that". Thompson frustrated Irving early, holding him to 40 percent shooting the first two games. "We're going to keep scrapping". "It has been great for our team with his ability to take big shots and knock them down".

Kevin Durant won the Finals MVP as he averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 blocks.

The Warriors captured the 2015 title in Cleveland with a 105-97 victory in Game 6. When I say something, I've already thought about what I was going to say. If you're prepared, then you're prepared. "It's like, 'Whoa.' You remember what can be, what can happen". Don't look at the final box score - that's what I call the "evened-up version" after allowing one team to set the tone it needed to set.

"Yeah, they make me feel good", said Green.

"We're right where we want to be", he said. So it's one of the reasons we Love Zaza.

"We know the situation we're in. They don't just lay down and die", Durant said. There's validity to the argument that he took the easy way out, though it's hardly the first time a player loaded up with a bunch of stars to go for a title.
