Kevin Durant #35 and Andre Iguodala #9 of the Golden State Warriors talk after Game Seven of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets during the 2018 NBA Playoffs on May 28, 2018 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

"The Warriors make you pay the price for making mistakes", said former coach and player Jackson.

Love is averaging 13.9 points on 38.8 percent shooting, 10.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game during the 2018 postseason.

OAKLAND, Calif. - The Golden State Warriors have gone to the NBA Finals four consecutive years. While James was clearly outside the restricted area, officials also had the chance to review whether James was in legal guarding position and changed the call to a block because they determined he turned his body and moved into Durant.

"Any time you have a team that's led by somebody who is considered the greatest player of all time or one of them, there's going to be an interesting sort of dynamic with the teammates", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

"You can get impatient", Iguodala said.

"I really hope that, before our careers are over, we can all play together", LeBron said in March 2016.

"Even if you start back to the summertime where I felt like it was just bad for our franchise just to be able to trade away our superstar point guard", James saind in an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

"We know he's going to make tough shots, and sometimes you've got to live with it". At media day on Wednesday in advance of the Finals matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Curry was asked about his thoughts on that elusive honor pretty early during his media address. The teams are set to face off in their first game of the Finals on Thursday night. That was expected to translate into a second consecutive championship and put them in the conversation as the greatest team in National Basketball Association history.

A lot has been made about James' relationship with Irving. We've seen J.R. [Smith], last time he was in this building he had like 30 points in Game 5 previous year.

Rules allow officials to go to replay in the final 2 minutes of regulation or in overtime to determine if a defender attempting to draw a charge was in the restricted area.
