Andre Iguodala to miss Game 1 of NBA Finals with leg contusion


Love is set to play in his fourth consecutive NBA Finals for the Cavs, but he's recovering from a concussion that may keep him out of Game 1.

The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers will meet in the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season.

Iguodala relishes the challenge of a 4th consecutive finals showdown with James and the Cavaliers, the first time in United States pro sports such a "four-peat" has happened. The Warriors won the first Finals meeting in six games. With Round 4 of Cavs-Warriors on the horizon, ESPN sent National Basketball Association reporter Rachel Nichols-one of the best in the game-to sit down with LeBron James. That's how good James remains at 33, as he proved while averaging 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists in the Eastern Conference play-offs. James now has a slight edge, with his 28.83 points per game placing him fourth and slightly ahead of Durant, who has averaged 28.75.

The 2017 Finals mano-a-mano was the first for James and Durant with the Cavaliers and Warriors, respectively. "I had loved him at Arizona and was hoping that he slid to us with that pick".

The reduction would cause a yearly loss of Rs 509 crore to the state exchequer on the tax front, he said. Delhi has the cheapest price among all metros and most state capitals.

Star man Kevin Durant's impending free agency is the most pressing issue at hand for Warriors GM Bob Myers but the former league MVP has eased fears over a possible departure by categorically committing his future to the franchise. In his eighth straight NBA Finals, he probably needs to produce numbers like that in every game to give the Cavaliers any chance. Stephen Curry leads the Warriors with 11 points, including two deep 3-pointers. Did Steph Curry score more points in the Warriors' wins compared with their losses? - That's one of the reasons he's always seen cheering on Cleveland. Tristan Thompson becomes the player who dominated the paint for most of the 2015 series. He was injured during a head-to-head collision with Boston Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

"Just going against the Warriors in the last three years in the Finals, I kind of figured or thought that they could get it done", he said. I'm sure if you asked the fans of the Warriors and the Cavs around the world, whether it's in the Bay Area or in Cleveland, I'm sure they're happy with their team performance.

"So I think the biggest thing going into Game 1 is just to get everybody settled down".
