NBA Finals 2019: Charles Barkley once again picks against Warriors

Looking at the NBA Finals odds, the big hitters will be snapping up 33/100 for the Warriors to lift the trophy again. He's a drama-free superstar. Leonard has been everything and more for the Raptors, but it still wouldn't have been enough if not for the role players like Lowry, VanVleet and Siakam stepping up in these playoffs. "So I think every time we hit a challenge or something that was thrown at us, we reacted pretty good".

"Not much for me", he said when asked how much time he gave himself to move on. Danny Green, the team's best three-point shooter, is only hitting 31.4 percent. "We're in the finals, and we're not done yet".

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors and Team LeBron warms up before the NBA All-Star game as part of the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, Feb. 17, 2019.

"I do, but I'm not going to tell you", Kerr said Thursday.


Since injured his right calf against the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals, Durant's rehab has entailed receiving treatment in the trainer's room and completing exercises in the weight room.

"Steph (Curry) and Klay Thompson have been fantastic but listen - the Warriors are not going to win the championship without KD". But Durant will be missed when they face the Raptors, who beat the Milwaukee Bucks - the best National Basketball Association regular season team - in six games. Stephen Curry was a little slow out of the gates in these playoffs, but he was red-hot against the Trailblazers as he averaged 36.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists while averaging 6.5 3-point makes per game. He retired in 2000 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame six years later.

The Warriors booked their place in the NBA Finals early last week after sweeping the Portland Trail Blazers.
