Cavs' Kevin Love Still In Concussion Protocol, Game 1 In Jeopardy

NBA Finals Le Bron James will lead the Cavaliers against the Warriors

NBA Finals Le Bron James will lead the Cavaliers against the Warriors

Love left Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals after colliding with Jayson Tatum and didn't play in Cleveland's Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics. The network says Tuesday that only its coverage of the 2016 West finals Game 7 between the Warriors and Oklahoma City drew a larger audience for an National Basketball Association game on cable.

Coach Steve Kerr lamented that Golden State's first half on Monday night was "one of the most freaky first halves" his team has played since he's been with the Warriors and joked that he thought of resigning at halftime before getting serious. May 29 10:27 PM ESPN's Zach Lowe joins Howard to break down both game 7s of the conference finals, speculate on Houston's sustainability and reliance on "iso ball", Golden State's vulnerability, and rank LeBron James' achievements.

They're just too good to lose.

Love averaged 24 points and 12.5 rebounds on 41.2 percent shooting in two regular-season games against the Warriors.

With largely the same group of players and a few solid additions to the bench, Houston will be primed to come back stronger next year and go toe to toe with the juggernaut from the Bay Area once again.

Ireland votes ‘yes’ to repeal constitutional abortion ban
Varadkar has campaigned aggressively for repealing Ireland's abortion ban, but the vote's results are expected to be close. It has the potential to be a huge day for Ireland should this referendum pass and the constitution is amended accordingly.

Van Gundy will join Mark Jackson, Mike Breen and Doris Burke in broadcasting the Finals, which could well be the toughest test James ever has faced. While Cleveland has to stop Golden State's offense if they are to have a chance of winning the series, they also need to do a lot more at the other end of the court. They have some big decisions to make with Paul, Ariza and center Clint Capela eligible for free agency. It's a small sample size, but when Love scores at least 20 points this postseason, Cleveland is 3-1.

LeBron James has rescued the Cavaliers from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals and just pulled them out of a 2-0 hole against Boston. In his nine trips to the Finals, he's been the underdog seven times. And the Rockets might have done it, too, had Chris Paul's hamstring not popped in the final seconds of Game 5 and forced him to the sideline for the rest of the series.

As the debate about Golden State being a potential dynasty rages on, general manager Bob Myers is not interested in talking about that possibility.

In a win-or-go-home Game 7 on the road, LeBron James dropped 35 points en route to his eighth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

"I can not do that next series, and that's a big no-no", he said. Even more people watched in 2016 and 2017.
