Cleveland's supporting cast made big contributions at various times throughout the Eastern Conference Finals.
The third quarter has become the "death quarter" for the Warriors.
Without Irving, Cleveland is even less equipped to handle Golden State. The Warriors outscored Houston 122-63 in the second-half of the final two games. Both teams overcame a grueling best-of-7 series in the Conference Finals and won Game 7 on the road. It is the highest-rated quarter hour of an National Basketball Association game on ESPN as far as records go back.
Curry and Kevin Durant, meanwhile, played like the MVPs they've been, at least in the second half.
Ivanka Trump defends Serena Williams, slams women’s tennis for ‘ridiculous’ maternity rule
We saw with the WTA a year ago and all the four grand slams and the season-ending championships were won by different players. And was 33 when she became only the third player - male or female - to win 20 major singles titles in 2015.
They might have to do it without star Chris Paul, who is dealing with a strained right hamstring that kept him out of Game 6.
It's a amusing proposition, since just a year ago LeBron's Cavs were accused of the same tactic - letting quarters, even games slip away knowing that they could turn on the jets when they had to.
The problem has been Golden State had the same expectation.
And, if it is, there will be one reason for it: the Warriors' hubris will have finally caught up with them. It doesn't matter whether the change is for better or worse.
USA team enters North Korea to prepare for summit
The Moon and Trump administrations very much want the meeting, he said, "and Kim says he wants a summit, so it's going to happen". Mr Randall Schriver, Assistant Secretary of Defence for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs, is also part of the team.
That means a $1,200 bet on the Warriors would win $100 if the champions successfully defend their title, while a $100 bet on the Cavs would win $750 if LeBron James can capture his fourth championship. They're 7-2 in Houston this postseason with one of their losses coming in Game 1 of this series. "And you have to have those momentum changers and stoppers, and the last two games, we didn't have them".
And that's a primary reason why we will have Cavaliers-Warriors IV in the NBA Finals.
Mirroring the Warriors' lineups may just give the Cavs a little boost matchups-wise.
