NBA Playoffs 2018: Celtics vs

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry celebrates his 2-point basket against the New Orleans Pelicans in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference semifinals at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Tuesday

For the moment, Cavaliers fans have quit fretting about where LeBron might end up after this season.

Green is averaging 13.1 points, 11.5 rebounds and 9 assists in the playoffs.

Donovan Mitchell scored 25 before fouling out and Joe Ingles had 15 for the Jazz. "He's, if not the greatest, one of the greatest to do it". He went to go get it. "We don't have to run around talking about how bad we want to play somebody", Green told Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle.

"Last year we had even less ability to overcome what they did offensively", Griffin, now an analyst for SiriusXM, said of the difference between the last two NBA Finals, which the Cavaliers and Warriors split.

Like the Rockets, the Warriors easily advanced to the Western Conference Finals after eliminating the New Orleans Pelicans in just five games. However, they are aware of how unsafe the Celtics can be. He is someone who could be starting on many different teams and who can destroy the opposing bench. They paced themselves a bit this season and Stephen Curry's injury could prove to be blessing, since his six weeks on the injured list could leave him with fresher legs. If they can keep the Warriors from blowing them off the court and maintain their composure, this could be their series.

The old Rockets fell apart in the playoffs a year ago against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Rockets cruised through their two first round series with relative ease as did the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets scored 114.6 points per 100 possessions, the 11th highest since 1979-80, the first year the National Basketball Association adopted the three-point line, while shooting 46 percent from the field and 36 percent behind the arc, giving them an effective field goal rate of 55.1 percent, the ninth-highest over that span and second highest in 2017-18 after the Warriors.

McCaffery: At the end, the Sixers were unable to go the distance
Brett Brown considered that "leaving points on the table", and they have an extra sting given the two-point game differential. Simmons' driving layup with 1:45 to play in the first half brought the 76ers within 53-52 heading into the final minute.

Nestle to pay $7.15B to sell Starbucks packaged coffee
Starbucks also notes that it already has plans for the after-tax proceeds that it will get from the $7.15 billion deal. Nestle expects the deal to contribute positively to its earnings per share and organic growth targets from 2019.


They're also now set to face the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals with a chance to return to the NBA Finals once again on the line.

There's a reason the Warriors posted unusual 29-12 records both home and away this campaign - these regular-season nihilists consistently needed some provocation to play their best. Clint Capela said it's going to be "a chess game" in addition to "a fight", and that combination of intellectual hoops and a boxing match should be incredible. It's going to be a chess game.

Let's hope he brings his A game against the defending champs. They are in the middle-of-the-pack in terms of three-point attempt rate. It doesn't matter to us who we play. Everybody's excited about it.

When the Pelicans stole Game 3 to make it a 2-1 Golden State lead, Kerr started the Death Lineup, the five-man smallball unit coined in the 2015 title run.

The Rockets that night unveiled the awesome offensive power that eventually carried them to the top of the league in the regular season.

With this scenario looking increasingly likely all year, both teams have been preparing for each other for months and know enough about their playing styles. "I think defensively both teams are playing really well".
