James Harden shoots a three for the Houston Rockets
01 June, 2018, 07:16
But neither the Rockets nor the Celtics could finish the job, and we're now left with the NBA Finals matchup that seemed like a foregone conclusion back in October. As Paul and Clint Capela enter free agency this offseason, Houston will have $75.8 tied to just five players-James Harden ($30.4 million), Ryan Anderson ($20.4 million), Eric Gordon ($13.5 million), P.J. Tucker ($7.9 million) and Nene Hilario ($3.6 million)-according to Spotrac.
Golden State struggled to hit shots for stretches.
Hill and Hood are a couple of the new guys on the Cavs roster that were acquired in a three-team deal before the February trade deadline. "When you walk off the court with a win and get this fancy hat, it's a good feeling", Curry said. He's not a scorer for us as Chris (Paul) is for Houston, but a huge component.
After Philadelphia started the "Billboard Battle" in late February and Los Angeles and Portland continued the recruiting effort when the Cavaliers made a west-coast road trip, NY joined the fray in an attempt to recruit James to sign with the Knicks in free agency this summer.
"Definitely a different team but we know everything goes and stops with LeBron James with them", Green said. "We've got our key people in coach D'Antoni, Tilman, James [Harden] and Chris".
The team's belief in Harden is as strong as ever, even after a disappointing conference finals by his standards, averaging less than his regular-season totals in scoring, rebounds and assists. "He's such a student of the game; he's going to add something else to his game once again". Paul fell awkwardly late in Game 5 with a strained right hamstring and was physically unable to transition back to defense.
It's clearly weighing on him, his coach said. D'Antoni knows this better than most - his "Seven Seconds or Less" Suns never broke through to the NBA Finals.
Sitting on the sidelines and watching his team lose to the Warriors, when he should've been playing in the biggest game of his life, was understandably tough for Paul to take and general manager Daryl Morey explained how he was finding it the hardest of anybody on the team. "I'm not going to say zero percent chance - they have the best player in the world", he said, referring to James.
The pain of being so close to their goal of a championship is evident among everyone in the Rockets organization.
Morey expressed optimism in having the team back in a similar if not better position next season.
However, later he granted an exemption to the European Union and other U.S. allies; that reprieve expires Friday. Trump will encounter each other at the G7 conference of wealthy nations in Quebec in just over a week.
