Have we seen too much of the best NBA Finals matchup?

James Harden Warriors sink ice-cold Rockets and return to Finals

"Just looking forward to the challenge of going out there and helping the team win".

An official for Fanatics, the world's largest merchandise licensee, told ESPN that the company sold more gear from when the teams clinched their respective conferences through midday Thursday - hours before tipoff of Game 1 of the NBA Finals - than in each of the previous three years.

The numbers show Lue's concern is genuine.

Love, averaging 13.9 points and 10.0 rebounds in the playoffs, missed Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston after sustaining a concussion.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers star has yet to begin the quest for his fourth NBA championship in his eighth straight NBA Finals appearance - against the Golden State Warriors for the fourth consecutive season - Paul is reportedly laying the groundwork for bringing James to Houston.

Golden State produced one of their worst halves of basketball in the decider against Houston and needed to pull off something special to turn it around as they were being outplayed and outfought.

Tesla in Autopilot mode crashes into a parked police car in California
On Friday, Tesla agreed to settlement of a class-action lawsuit that calls for payments to customers around the world. In January, a Model S slammed into the back of a fire truck parked on a freeway in Culver City at an accident scene.

FRENCH OPEN Serena, Sharapova match a possibility
Complications resulting from that surgery kept the world's greatest female tennis player laid up for six weeks of bed rest. Serena who left the tour to give birth as World No. 1 has not been handed a seeding by the organisers.

The Warriors' haven't been as explosive this year either, with their playoff average going from 119.3 last season to 109.1 this time around.

ABC will broadcast the best-of-seven series exclusively and games will also be available via the ABC app and on the ABC website.

Curry was the catalyst to the Warriors' third-quarter outburst in Game 7 with 14 of Golden State's 33 points. Korver leads all Cavaliers with a 3-point percentage of 44.9 in the postseason, thanks to his relentless scurrying around screens set off-ball by Love and other Cavs. "I want to just try to maximize as much as I can and be as good as I can". He said he had to give himself a pep talk to get out of his personal funk that was affecting the rest of the team. That eventually helped Brown land a head coaching job with the Cavaliers (twice) and the Los Angeles Lakers, before Kerr hired him in the 2016 offseason. "Making some progress, [but] it's slower than we expected". He makes a high rate of shots and makes it tough on you.

Golden State will get $5,188,122 if it wins, $3,993,173 if it loses.

"So just have fun, compete, make it tough for him as much as you can, and live with whatever happens".

James and his Cavaliers teammates arrived at Oracle Stadium in Oakland sporting matching ensembles.
