Very good game but thompson and curry didn't turn up in my opinion. Green carried the Warriors for most of the game

Curry been off his game more than on it these finals. That was the difference. He carries that team.

Yes I agree, I also think they weren't finishing enough inside the ark and missing easy layups or having moves break down outside the paint and just coming to a halt. They need better big men

It was nice to see it because of this Cool


That block in game 6 was it. They'd sportingly bullied them to try to get back to 3-3 and that block and talk and face said it all.

Whole season has been amazing and finals have been great Ubercool

They need to find a center and make sure the bench is ok but they are gonna score about 250 points a game…

Mega move that. Whole of the free agency has been mad. Gasol to the Spurs looks like Tim Duncan will retire Cry

Not sure about the KD move - he will have to make big adjustments to his game to fit in there. Suppose he's thinking it's his best shot at a ring. I reckon he'd have been better staying at OKC and them recruiting a decent shooting guard and 6th man. Could have persuaded Wade to go for another crack at a ring.

The have zero cap space, even with the new cap in place this year. They were in the luxury tax bracket last year. Their total would have increased this year as durant would have signed an even better deal to the one he got in GS (+6 mil on what he was getting) and only a similar amount of expiring contract $ meaning they would still be above the soft cap.

Not sure on the move either, i hated it when lebron did it and this is even worse……going to the team you haven't been able to beat

Warriors are odds on to win it all.

Did the Ibaka/Oladipo stuff not create any space? Still think OKC could have been contenders anyway. Will be hoping it goes tits up for the WarriorsShocked

Only about 6m diff in contracts so still not enough to get them under the soft cap had Durant taken a max deal

They have got plenty of room now tho Laughing out loud
Even more next year when Russ bails too I imagine……

LeBrons 3 to tie the game was just unbeleivable! Great season so far. Gutted for Zach Lavine though.

Heat on an 11 game winning streak. 12 wins would see them tie with Warriors who achieved that earlier this season. Incredible considering they are outside the playoffs and were shit for so long.

Was at the Game last night in DC, great seats 8 rows behind Cavs bench. Best game I've ever seen live.

Ubercool can you pick yourself out going nuts on the replay? Shocked

Getting into basketball again after going to the last two games in London, which were great fun! Got to Chicago for Kobe's last game at the united center last year. Hoping to get out to see my Raptors play sometime this year.

Couldn't make myself out on TV, but here's one from my phone - was amazing. My mate is a big Wizards fan but living in Dallas I follow the Mavs (which hasn't been fun this year) so I didn't care who won and just wanted a close game.

Got tickets for the Mavs vs Spurs in a month or so which should be good. That's cool about seeing Kobe'slast game in the Chicago, not a mega fan of his game but would have loved to see him play all the same.

Finals is going to be insane if Cavs and Warriors both bring their A games Cool
